Forged: Venkatesh Daggubati, Varun Tej, Tamannaah Bhatia, Mehreen Pirzada Stars
Director: Anil Ravipudi
How will we discuss F3: Enjoyable and Frustration? I might offer you a rant about each problematic aspect within the movie? Or do I simply let or not it’s and let you know in regards to the bits I loved? As a result of if I did the previous then I’d should rank and resolve which of them to go away out and which of them to incorporate in a assessment and selecting and rating problematic points from such an enormous record sounds fallacious too.
Do I let you know that the jokes on epilepsy, night time blindness, stammering, and different disabilities are horrible, or do I let you know that the concept one of many protagonists’ dad and mom pimps her to save cash is meant to be humorous? Oh, what in regards to the fixed utilization of some professions as insults or the severely unlikeable protagonists whose solely redeeming qualities are that typically they complain about cash as most middle-class individuals do? However then once more this can be a director who in his earlier movies made enjoyable of rape and little one marriage, so am I blissful that this appears like an improve?
This feels pointless and looks as if an infinite process.
I’d reasonably let you know what I loved and laughed at. And I’m not being ironic with what I say. I genuinely consider that Anil Ravipudi, this movie’s director and one among its many writers, has a very good eye for sketch comedy. His greatest gags will not be reserved for the protagonists however the completely irrelevant facet characters. Take into consideration the constable performed by Srinivas Reddy in Pataas who’s a satire on the devotion proven by facet characters to protagonists, a personality trope that Srinivas Reddy often performs. Take into consideration the member of the family in Supreme whose solely dialogue and demand is “Espresso” on the worst moments starting from a hospital, to when individuals are considering suicide, and many others.
He additionally appears to have a very good knack for learn how to make a scene humorous with sudden entries and exits together with his tertiary characters. Take into consideration the bodyguard in F2: Enjoyable and Frustration who each time he enters the body complains a few new illness he’s obtained after which exits much more randomly than he appeared.
But when Anil Ravipudi channeled this imaginative and prescient and writing for his most important characters, I feel we’d have a recent comedic voice that we haven’t seen in Telugu cinema since Jandhyala. However as a substitute, what we’ve is a movie crammed with problematic parts and a few cringe humor for its protagonists, and small hidden gems which can be hilarious for the secondary characters.
F3: Enjoyable and Frustration tells the story of Venky (Venkatesh), Varun (Varun Tej), Harika (Tamannaah Bhatia), and Honey (Mehreen Pirzada), all of whom discover themselves struggling to flee their lower-middle-class roots. They rip-off others, one another, and themselves however nothing appears to be working till sooner or later they probability upon a proposal from a millionaire Anand Prasad (Murali Sharma). Do they take it? Are they worthy of it? What the hell is F3? Is it a model?
This movie too suffers from severely unfunny protagonists and it takes a particular form of Telugu movie to make Venkatesh unfunny. The first cause for that is that in F2: Enjoyable and Frustration, Venky and Varun had the viewers’s sympathy and we laughed at their plight. Even once they did questionable issues the viewers forgave them. However right here, they haven’t any such rooting and due to this fact come out more and more unlikeable. It’s laborious to chortle at characters who’re fallacious and do extra fallacious issues with out having our sympathy fully with them. I do know it’s a sequel but when the filmmaking staff expects the viewers to overlook the unique, then the viewers will droop their sympathy for the protagonists which must be re-earned too. However Anil Ravipudi and the writing staff fail to try this.
The place they do succeed although is with the facet characters and the supporting actors who play them. Vennela Kishore as a co-scammer is so good that he manages to make “Doodh Mangoge ko kheer denge, Kashmir maangoge tho cheer dhenge” humorous. I can’t clarify why it’s so however it’s simply hilarious given the scenario he’s in the place he performs a self-aware junior artist bored with the movie he’s in.
Equally, Mirchi Kiran, who I price extremely and is extremely underutilized by Telugu cinema, has simply two moments and his entries and dialogue supply are hilarious. Sunil finds a few of that previous allure again and it’s to Anil Ravipudi’s credit score that we’ve lastly discovered a director who can carry that Sunil again. There’s a superb gag with youngsters who’re too hooked on telephones.
Even Pradeep KV’s henpecked father will get a hilarious payoff that’s humorous within the context of this movie and as a meta-dig in any respect the punch dialogues thrown by younger heroes. However the movie’s greatest strains go to Raghu Babu (Anji Reddy) who’s the ethical conscience of the scammers that no person listens to. It’s a task he’s accomplished numerous occasions however as the person bored with making devious plans however does them anyway solely to at all times remorse them is the precise notice of hilarious.
And that’s about it. I feel. I may need missed out on a couple of extra moments I laughed however this record covers most of them. The remainder of it’s some model of cringe, unfunny, and problematic. They tease an F4 which goes to be larger apparently – seems like a menace actually. However not less than I do know what I’m wanting ahead to in that one.
