Current Theega is a Commercial Entertainer in Rural Backdrop. A Passable watch if you want to kill some time.
Story: `Manoj` plays a take it easy kind of a guy who is in search of love. `Rakulpreet` plays an young college girl whose father (played by) Jagapathi Babu is the Village Headman who has a challenge to keep- "All my 3 Daughters will have arranged marriages only". What happens when the Young Girl falls for the Guy is the rest.
Story & Screen Play : The story has limited scope of surprise element and is completely predictable. The narration is okay and has been able to maintain some interest in several episodes. The 1st half takes a slow start and the budding romance of the lead pair makes it an okay fare by the Interval card appears. 2nd half is largely predictable and is less entertaining and ends in a routine climax. It is an average fare on the whole thanks to its Glamour & entertainment quotient.
Typical role for Jagapathi Babu and he`s fine. Manoj with his histrionics is partly good but at times over the top. Rakulpreet did play the Village Belly role to good effect and is Glamorous on screen. She is a big find for Tollywood in the last year or so. Sunny Leone`s Cameo is for pure attraction and she`s a poor actor.
Songs & Background Music : Achu’s Tunes are average and 2 songs are good on screen and are a plus for the Movie. Manoj did good job with his moves. BGM is Adequate.
Stunts : are over the top.
Direction : is Average.
Plus : Glamour & Entertainment.
Minus : Routine & Over the top.
Overall Movie Rating : 3 / 5 ( Just Okay )
BoxOffice Verdict :
Current Theega was made on a biggest ever cost for a solo Manoj starer. This film has scope to do well in mass areas rather than in big cities. It might end up as another average fare commercially.
