Movie review 'Bandipotu': Revenge story lacks punch

This is a basic revenge story with a few comedy scenes

Cast: Allari Naresh, Eesha, Rao Ramesh, Thanikella Bharani, Posani and Sampoornesh Babu
Director: Indraganti Mohan Krishna
Rating: Two and a half stars

Allari Naresh has been going through a lean patch, and is looking for a hit. Bandipotu is his home production, with his brother Rajesh as the producer. Indraganti Mohan Krishna is the director while Eesha plays the female lead.


Viswa (Naresh) cheats people for a living, but he has his set of principles. Jahnavi (Eesha) approaches Viswa for a deal. She asks him to cheat three very influential people. She is seeking revenge as her father (Sudhakar) had suffered a lot due to these three persons.

Viswa agrees to do the assignment, and takes the help from his friend (Sampoornesh Babu). How Viswa dupes the three is what the story is all about. Indraganti Mohan Krishna is a sensible director, but here his script is lacklustre and predictable.

This is a basic revenge story with a few comedy scenes. Naresh, popular for his comic roles, tries to fit into this new persona, but succeeds only partially. Eesha looks fresh, but the chemistry between Naresh and Eesha does not work.
