VN Aditya, known for films like Manasantha Nuvve, Nenunnanu and Aata, has now come up with a film titled Valliddari Madhya. It stars Viraj Ashwin and Neha Krishna in the lead roles and has released live on Aha. So let’s see how it is.
Varun (Viraj Ashwin), an engineering graduate, starts a business that looks after the welfare of parents who are away from their children. In the process, Anvaya’s (Neha Krishna) parents become Varun’s clients. Varun falls in love with Anvaya the moment he sees her. Anvaya also loves him, but the problem starts when Varun and Anvaya’s alter egos affect their relationship. The rest of the film is about how the lead pair deal with their egos.
A nice basic idea of the movie is that egos don’t have to play havoc in one’s relationship. Viraj Ashwin, as a conservative and generic person, played his role well. She looked smart and stylish and also showed off her dancing skills in the film. Bindu Chadramouli, who played the hero’s mother, did well in her role. The scene that explains the importance of staying in a relationship is beautifully shown.
Neha Krishna made her debut with Valliddari Madhya, and did a good job in her first film. He acted with ease and also performed well in emotional scenes. Neha Krishna also looked good on screen. Srikanth Iyengar, as a psychologist, gave a nice performance and his scenes were watchable.
The film’s biggest drawback is its script, which is inconsistent. It’s not attractive, either. From the very beginning, the proceedings seemed dull and boring, without generating any excitement. The idea of running services for parents whose protagonists are far from their children is not innovative, and the execution is also poor. The company, in a short time, becomes very successful with a turnover of millions, which seems silly.
The basic point of conflict between the main pair is not well established, and the scenes that follow in this regard are poorly handled. Drama was largely lacking, and the lack of emotional depth made the proceedings dull and uninteresting. The alter ego concept looked good on paper, but the same did not translate to the screen.
The comedy seemed strange and stale, without bringing much-needed relief. With a running time of 135 minutes, the film seems very long due to the long script and long sequences. Even the climax was routine, the expected twists came and the real message was diluted.
Madhu Sravanthi’s music is good, and a couple of songs are good to listen to. The photography by RR Kolanchi is nice. The editing, however, is not at the right level, and the team had to cut the film by at least 10-15 minutes. The production values are decent.
Coming to director VN Aditya, he underperformed the film. He also provided the story, but the writing should have been more effective to convey his point strongly. A compelling script with appropriate and strong emotions would have made a lot more difference.
Overall, Valliddari Madhya is a movie that had potential. But it ends up as a sad and exciting film. Although it has a good message, the lack of compelling narrative and long running time does not sit well with the audience and ends up being a disappointing watch this weekend.
