After delivering two back to back super hit movies, director Anil Ravipudi is all set to continue his winning streak with his full-length comedy entertainer ‘F2: Fun and Frustration’ which is a multi starrer movie with Victory Venkatesh and Varun Tej. Milky beauty Tamannaah played the lady love of Venky whereas Mehreen Pirzada appeared as the love interest of Varun Tej. The makers have already created a definite buzz around the audience with a fun-filled teaser and the trailer. Now, the movie made it into the theatres today. Here is the review of the film
Harika (Tamannah) and Honey (Mehreen) are sisters who have a similar attitude and other dominating characteristics. Venky (Venkatesh) who works as a PA to MLA, marries Harika in an arranged marriage. Varun Yadav (Varun Tej), a Hyderabad young guy likes Honey, and they get engaged. After marriage, Venky’s becomes frustrated as Tamannah, and her mom dominates at home. He finds that Varun is his to be his co-brother. So, he warns him not to join this family. But, Varun doesn’t listen to Venky. After some frustrating events, Venky and Varun as advised by a neighbor (Rajendra Prasad) go to Europe trip. Knowing this, Harika and Honey too go to Europe also. All the characters end up at Prakash Raj’s Home in Europe. Why they went to Prakash Raj’s Home? Did Venky and Varun break their relationships? Forms the rest of the story.
As usual, Victory Venkatesh steals the show with his comic streak. It is known that the actor is a pro when it comes to churning out comedy with his role and he has done it again. This is the first time for Varun Tej, but it is refreshing to see him in a funny kind of a role. However, he pulled it off effortlessly and delivered an energetic performance. Both Mehreen and Tamannaah added up the glamour quotient in the film. They looked beautiful, and their stunning screen presence will grab the attention. Both Rajendra Prasad and Prakash Raj delivered convincing performances. Jhansi performed well. Vennela Kishore and Priyadarshi will make the audience laugh.
The production values of Sri Venkateswara creations are rich. It is evident that the producers Sirish and Laxman has invested without compromising in the quality of the film. The visuals produced by cinematographer Sameer Reddy are excellent, and they added more beauty to the film. Music by Devi Sri Prasad is just average. Though a couple of songs are good, there are no haunting songs in the movie, and even the BGM is also the same. Editing by Bikkina Thammiraju could have been better. Runtime is crisp.
Anil Ravipudi has come up with one more comedy entertainer with his trademark entertainment. More than with the dialogues, the director concentrated on producing situational comedy as well which is also a good thing in the film. The movie is a good combo of comedy and entertainment. We can get to see the vintage Venky with his unique style. The songs are just average, and they could have been much better.
The storyline is very thin. The first half is fun but the second half is somewhat frustrating. The movie starts with good situational comedy, but things get boring in the second half. The scenes in Prakash Raj’s house are slightly dull. Overall, if you like family entertainers, then this movie is for you.
