Everyone loves a good old fashioned story. We may not buy the idea that is told in the story, but if it is told in a way that makes us feel empathy for the characters, it is a victory. The premise of Venky Mama is old: the predictions of the horoscope. A disclaimer states that the film does not support superstition. Regardless of whether or not we believe in astrological predictions, the story of an inseparable uncle and nephew in which one of them is dangerous can keep us hooked and make us hope that faith, in this case unbridled love, can move the proverbial mountains.
For a respected village patriarch (Nasser), the horoscope readings are everything. He opposes his daughter’s marriage to the man of his choice because their horoscopes do not match. If they marry, the predictions indicate that they will lose their lives before the child does one. Fate goes away and they die in a car accident, leaving their little son behind. Grandpa does not want his nephew at home because his horoscope has something sinister. But Uncle Venkatratnam (Venkatesh) is responsible for the growth of the child who illuminates him instantly.
This whole idea may seem obsolete and boring, but when the child embraces his uncle, it seems the beginning of an emotional family drama.
From this moment on, the bond between the affectionate uncle and his nephew takes over. Venky gives up his dream of joining the army and remains single, serving his nephew 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Although there are two female protagonists, Harika (Rashi Khanna) and Vennela (Payal Rajput as a school teacher), the true love story is between mother Venky and Karthik alludu (Naga Chaitanya). Chaitanya with his youthful behavior shows a mixture of awe and affection for his real and real uncle. Venkatesh appears in a retro song and we see shadows of his character from vintage star in some scenes he owns and shines completely.
The alludu tries to be his mother’s companion and teacher, while the mother tries to relate the alludu with her college girlfriend, Harika. All this should be fun. The main cast has a good comic moment and Vidyu Raman and Hyper Aadhi offer additional support, but the quality of humor is mostly low profile. There’s a really fun scene where Chaitanya and Aadhi avoid being photographed. The rest is pretty lazy. Show this: Venkatesh chases Rashi to find out why he broke up with Chaitanya. But thanks to a friend’s interpretation, Rashi and Vidyu think they are a skirt hunter. Although Rashi and Vidyu share an excellent relationship, these episodes are not funny. The same applies to the scenes in which Chaitanya and Aadhi chase Payal for Venkatesh’s sake. Surely the film could have had a better comedy of bathroom humor and bedroom jokes.
Payal speaks in a strange mixture of Telugu and Hindi and a partner comments that it looks like a partially nicknamed Hindi film. Even if this had been exploited with intelligent lines, it would have led to laughter. Humor also falls here.
There is some hope in an emotional emotional story when Nasser makes a revelation in the pre-intermediate part that makes his wife (Geetha) and we, the public, understand the gravity of the situation. But the film goes downhill when the action changes in Kashmir. From a mile, it’s easy to guess what the mother Venky will do. The end is a cliché.
The only thing that works is the uncle-niece combination. Both Venkatesh and Chaitanya make the film visible and their union needed a better plot and script. Rashi Khanna has a beautiful presence on the screen and is excited without effort. Rao Ramesh and Prakash Raj are chosen in parts that seem very repetitive.
Except for a strange and funny situation and the camaraderie of his uncle his grandson, there is little else to support.
