Today, we have GopiChand starrer Wanted. Title ‘Wanted’ seems just apt because it is Success that is most ‘Wanted’ for GopiChand, who is in verge of acting in routine movies. And for debutant director BVS Ravi, a writer turned director who worked as writer for good movies like Satyam, King, Parugu and Munna. And lastly for lovely Deeksha…who need to score back to back after recent success Mirapakai.
Rambabu (GopiChand) is happy going guy with loving parents. He falls in love with medico Nandini (Deeksha). Things turn upside down because of nandini’s past and her revenge.
You need to check out if something sounds unpredictable in the plot!!!
This film would have been cake walk for GopiChand as he has done this good number of times. Though he acted pretty well, due to lack of freshness he scores just the pass marks. He should be careful while choosing the subjects.
Deeksha is no doubt USP of the film. With her cute looks and similarities with Divayabharathi, She steals the show. She is damn good in all the costumes. But this role is made limited to suit her capabilities even there is scope to widen it. But she has got all five songs this time.
Prakashraj as main villain also has no much scope. Similarly Ahuti Prasad, Chandramohan, Jayasudha, Nazar and Subbaraju did their role as required. Brahmanandam and Raghubabu are fine with few average punches.
Generally we would have few things in mind if you carefully notice Gopichand’s movies, Daring hero, caring friends and pampering parents. Hero goes behind a girl and finally gets a nod from her. In between we see some glimpses of villains giving an idea that there is some miserable past. Second half, things get revealed and GopiChand runs on the streets with his clothes soaked in red color and he holding a knife or pistol. And don’t worry in the second half, the girl could dream few songs. One good thing about “Wanted” the movie exactly follows the footprints without disappointing you.
Director could not even narrate the regular story interestingly. Things become so predictable. And there is no excitement in the scenes which are supposed to be. First half goes in hope of looking for great second half, but second half kicks you back for expecting so much. It has small flashback that goes in the lines of “Athanokkade”.
If at all one need to see the positive side, Chakri has given few good tunes. And Deeksha looked cute and her admirers will not be disappointed. Count me among you if you are one among them.
This can be last choice of time pass…if you have covered other movies in the city. Movie as such is routine but made neatly. So for few laughs, few songs and for Deeksha…give it a try if needed.
Rating :- 2.5/5
