Cast: Aadi, Vaibhavi Shandilya, Brahmaji, Rashmi Gautam and Raghu
Rating: 2.5 stars
Very rarely, a film depends on character artistes instead of the lead pair or the storyline. In the recently released Next Nuvve, character actor Brahmaji plays a big role and holds the entire film on his shoulders. Although Aadi and Vaibhavi are the lead pair, the film mostly runs on Brahmaji and he provides the laughs. Directed by debutant Prabhakar, the film got mixed reviews, but is doing well on the first weekend.
The story revolves around a big resort that is run by Brahmaji, Aadi, Vaibhavi and Rashmi. A few guests come to the resort, but mysteriously all of them die. Who is killing them and why only guests are targeted forms the crux of the story. Brahmaji steals the show with his histrionics. There are a few scenes in which his performance is terrific and hilarious too. Definitely, Next Nuvve is his best after Venkatadri Express, which released a few years ago.
Aadi and Vaibhavi have given only average performances. Reshmi gets highlighted again for her glamour and is mostly seen seducing Aadi in the film. Comedian Raghu also plays a cameo and comes in the second half of the film. His scenes with Brahmaji are once again hilarious. This is director Prabhakar’s debut film, but one wonders why he chose a remake of Tamil hit Yaamirukka Bayamey, as it is good only in parts. There are a few unnecessary scenes in the film and the song on Avasarala Srinivas is a big waste. The music is average. There are many horror films made in recent years and this is just another one. As such, the movie is nothing great, but is just a time-pass comedy.
