Attarintiki Daaredi is a superb wholesome family entertainer, a must watch for all Telugu cinema fans.
Story : An Italy settled Bachelor `Gowtham Nanda` is on a mission to bring his Atta ( Mom-in-Law) back to his family. How he achieves his Grand Father`s wish and make her ( Atta ) realize her mistake forms the rest.
Story & Screen Play : This is near perfect family entertainer with lots of comedy, sentiment & action apart from typical Pawan`s Style!. Very Good.
Pawan Kalyan has delivered a sensational all round performance in the film. He will make you laugh, cry & feel every thing with him. His typical dialogue delivery & expressions are a treat for fans. Nadiya as `Atta` has done well in a dignified and dominating role. Boman Irani as the Grandpa is near perfect. Samantha did her bit and is good in `Ninnu Choodagane. Pranitha is okay. Rao Ramesh is as usually good.
Songs & Background Music : Songs have been well shot in rich & picturesque locations. Ninnu Choodagane & Bapu Gari Bomma stand out in the film. DSP`s BGM is also a major asset. Katam Rayuda is the most craziest moment.
Direction : Superb, Trivikram has not tried to overdo anything. He sensibly mixed Pawan`s strengths with his dialogues. Very Good. Emotional Pawan in climax is the best moment of the film, thanks to Trivikram.
Plus : Pawan, Comedy, Dailogues & Music.
Minus : Nothing much, but that it may not appeal to General Masses.
Overall Movie Rating : 4.5 / 5 ( A Must repeat Watch )
BoxOffice Verdict :
Attarintiki Daaredi has all the ingredients to do well in A & B Centers all over irrespective of piracy & protests etc.,. The film, we feel has the potential to become an Industry Hit, but the political uncertainty makes it difficult to predict a near range. Having said all that, AD may still end up in Top 3.
