Wanted Movie Review ' Wanted Review: Gopichand's new movie Wanted is out
for the masala craving Telugu audience. It is yet another routine fare
from the ever monotonous actor. Let's uncover the boredom which is now
renamed as Wanted in this review'.
(Gopichand) is a pampered son who doesn't care to work and his lovable
parents don't allow him to do any. He bumps into a girl Nandini (Deeksha
Seth), who has a haunted past. From then on Rambabu sincerely tries to
woo her but Nandini has other plans on the priority list. She has scores
to settle down with a local don Basivi Reddy (Prakash Raj). What did
Reddy do to her? What does she 'want' Rambabu to do for her? Is what we
get to know in the rest of the story!
story is as old as Himalayas. There is not a single scene which gives
you satisfaction that you have watched something 'new' and 'unseen'.
Wanted takes the beaten to death track and also to beats the audiences
to death! Director BVS Ravi might have thought he has taken a 'safe
route' by selecting this story to make his debut. But he has gone wrong
with the basics.
This film doesn't have any story. Director has
no clue of what to do in the first hour of the movie. Therefore he
simply passed the time with various irritating (literally) scenes where
the hero runs after the heroine for love. Every now and then a song pops
up on the screen and of course an action scene too. When the journey
seems unending and pointless the heroine asks a favor from the hero and
in the next scene he confronts the villain.
Second half is about
villain's search to reach the hero and teach him a lesson. The flashback
of heroine too is revealed in this half. The brutal killing episode in
this flashback reminds you of Atanokkade film. The only conflict or
interesting element of this film should be the hero-villain
confrontation. When the hero meets the villain at the interval point and
puts a gun to his chest and returns back unhurt, there is no point in
dragging the film for another hour.
BVS Ravi's screenplay lacked
spine. He has written a wafer thin story and has given it a mindless
treatment so that it hardly engages the viewer. Comedy track shot on
Brahmanandam is another waste of time. Wanted doesn't appeal to hardcore
mass masala movie lovers too. Ravi should get his basics right if he
ever tries to make a second attempt at direction.
sleepwalks through his role. He has done such roles in the past and
there is nothing to interest him/us to do/watch as Rambabu. Deeksha Seth
doesn't even know the ABCD of acting. She can't dance and at least
can't confidently face the camera. She is just a pretty face who should
be limited to a second fiddle.
Chandra Mohan and Jayasudha who
are generally natural are too loud in this film. Prakash Raj too looked
bored throughout the film. Brahmanandam , Raghubabu comedy track failed
to evoke any laughs.
There is nothing to mention about the rest of the star cast.
is alright. Dialogues written by Ravi himself are bad. Editing is
standard. Chakri's music didn't have any mass numbers despite mass hero
Gopichand playing the lead role. None of the songs are appealing.
Background score is strictly Okay. Production values are fine.
Ravi who started off his career as a writer didn't do anything
exceptional as a writer to date. He is just any ordinary writer and with
this film he proves he is better at writing than directing. Wanted is a
bad film on every aspect and it is certainly not a film which we expect
from a debutante.
- Hardly any
