Allari Naresh is back with his genre of comedy after a while with ‘Bangaru Bullodu’. The actor who was riding high on the success of his comedy movies had to hold back due to a string of flops. Meanwhile, he played an important role in Mahesh Babu’s ‘Maharshi’. So, with the dawn of the New Year, he greeted the audience in the leading role again with ‘BB’ which is tailor-made for him.
Bhavani Prasad(Allari Naresh) is a gold appraiser in a bank and his grandfather( Tanikella Bharani) is a goldsmith. Prasad is the youngest of the three brothers and the family responsibilities weigh down on him. Because his elder brothers played by Satyam Rajesh and Prabhas Srinu are addicted to gambling.
Prasad’s grandfather tells a secret about the gold ornaments of the deity. Expecting big money and with the intention to replace with their replica within six months, Prasad zeroes down on Boddu Nagaraju ( Posani) and hands over his mortgaged gold jewelry to his grandfather.
However, his plans fail. How he copes up and fulfills his grandfather’s wish is the rest of the story.
Writer and director Giri Palika successfully engaged the audience until the first half. Beginning on a high note, he promises a gripping movie. But, as the story unfolds, the plot gets diluted with too many diversions and motley characters. However, the beautiful Godavari greenery offers a feast to the eyes. Sateesh Mutyala’s cinematography breathed life into the movie with spectacular shots and panoramic views. Sai Kartheek’s ‘Swathilo Muthyamantha’ remix stands out among the songs. Better dialogues and editing could have worked well for the movie.
Allari Naresh played the role of Prasad in his own style. But, he certainly needs to add few variations in expressions, tone, and body language while performing comedy just to avoid looking monotonous. Pooja Jhaveri is ok as village belly. Praveen, Satyam Rajesh, Prabhas Seenu, Posani, and Brahmam delivered what is expected out of them. Vennela Kishore stands out among the lot by bringing some smiles in the auditorium.
Begins on a promising note but looks diluted in intervals. Those who love this genre of movies can ignore this and happily walk in to enjoy the experience of watching a comedy movie in theatres after a long time.
