(T Gopichand) is an honest and hot-blooded cop. Archana
(Gowri Pandit) is the daughter of police commissioner.
They meet accidentally and their relationship blossoms
into love. Archana's father is of Bihar origin. Parents
settle the match of Surendra and Archana. When they
are about to get engaged, Surendra expresses his reservations.
Archana goes back to Bihar to wed her brother-in-law
Sinha (Salim Baig). The rest of the story is all about
how Surendra goes to Bihar and wins Archana back.
T Gopichand is good in
the title role. He underplayed the character and gave
subtle expressions in this film. Heroine Gowri
Pandit is adequate. The comedy track with Sunil
and Lakshmipati is very
good. Sayaji Shinde excelled
in the role of Bihari MP. He suited the role more so
because he had to utter dialogues in Hindi. Pavan
Malhotra gave another controlled performance.
K Viswanath and Salim
Baig are appropriate. Ravi
Babu is good as the thief who twists the story
of the film.
- Screenplay - direction: Story of the film is about
how a sincere lover wins back his lady who is on the
verge of getting married to another guy. Screenplay
of the film is average. Direction is good in parts.
Though the director tried to establish mental toughness
and sacrificial aspect of hero, he could not get the
much required emotions established in the film.
departments: Music by Kalyani Malik is adequate.
A couple of songs are pretty melodious. All songs in
this film are situational. Dialogues in this film are
adequate. Photography by Vijay C Kumar is good. They
should have avoided using tint to the film. Graphics
work is pretty natural. Fights by Ram Lakshman are OK.
Editing by Marthand K Venkatesh is ample. Production
values by Keerthi Creations banner are good.
First half of the film is pretty slow. Second half has
Bihar backdrop. The narration of the film is pretty
slow. Plus points are Gopichand's histrionics, photography
and comedy episodes by Sunil-Lakshmipati duo. The negative
aspects are not being able to establish the emotional
scenes in way they make audiences feel for the characters.
The title of the film 'Andhrudu' is so powerful that
the character of hero should have mass heroism to do
justice to the title. But the director made the characterization
of hero a soft one. On a whole, Andhrudu makes an average
reviews of previous 5 films
