Mass entertainers and Ravi Teja go hand in hand. The masses just love the mass maharaja in earthy roles and once again Ravi Teja has come up with a high-voltage commercial entertainer titled Nela Ticket. Read on to see how the film turns out to be.
Ravi Teja is a man of the masses and goes to any lengths to help them. This is also the time when a shrewd politician called Aditya Bhupati is growing bigger politically and is trying to become the CM. But a small witness creates more problems for him and Bhupati is after the lady to demolish the witness. Here comes Ravi Teja into the scenes and turns things upside down for the minister. Why did he do so and what personal agenda he has with him forms the crux of the film.
The storyline of the film is so weak that an always energetic Ravi Teja looks dull in the film. He is left to do his role to the best of his worth and he blindly does what is needed of him. Heroine Malavika Sharma looks like Ravi Teja's younger sister of the film as the casting is such a misfit. She is expressionless and does not have much to do with the film.
Posani, Raghu Babu, Ali and Praveen are there throughout the film without adding any depth to the proceedings. The only life saviour is Jagapathi Babu who is great as the negative guy who is greedy. JB looks stylish and his dialogue delivery is very good.
The makers need to urgently sit on the editing table and remove at least 20 minutes from the runtime which is horribly long. Fida fame Shaktikanth's music is painful to the ears as the songs are a big letdown. The director, Kalyan Krishna has tried to wave a story which is ages old and made it set in this era which looks completely out of hand. The narration, characterization and the manner in which the good and bad is shown is straight from the bygone era.
The film is so unimpressive that the audience will not find any moment in the film where they feel entertained. Such is the state of the film which has been killed by the lazy execution of the director.
Lack of Entertainment
Over the top emotions
Many complained that Ravi Teja's last film, Touch Chesi Chudu was routine and boring. Looks like he has not learned a lesson as he has chosen the same old drama which has nothing new to offer for the audience. This is Ravi Teja's most disappointing film to date and will find no takers at the box office. People come for Ravi Teja's comedy and this film does not have it and moreover irritates you wholeheartedly.
