Music: Thaman S
Producer: YVS Chowdary
Surya (Raviteja) and Sriram (Sriram) are close friends. Sriram faces death sentence in Saudi Arabia, as they believe that he has killed his lover Vaishnavi (Bhavana). But the fact is Vaishnavi accidentally dies by falling from the roof top. Now Surya has a task on hands.
He has to get a letter from Vaishnavi’s parents to save his friend from death sentence. Surya comes to know that Vaishnavi is the daughter of Raja Goud (Pradeep Rawath), who has been waiting to take revenge on Surya as he rubbed him on the wrong side. Surya realizes that convincing Raja to sign the papers is not easy.
There is another person who is against Raja. He is Shankar Kaka (Mukul Dev). Surya join hands with him and gives a deadly blow to Raja. What happens next is the rest of the story.
Nippu doesn’t boast of great script. The storyline is tad ordinary. There is nothing sparkling or startling about the subject. We have seen such mindless action films many a time. So the director should have come up with an interesting screenplay to keep the audience glued.
Sadly, that didn’t happen as the screenplay is pretty bad right from the word go. None of the scenes are connected or interlinked. This is perhaps the weakest film among Gunasekhar’s movies in terms of screenplay. First half of the film is pretty boring and tests your patience.
Things get bit interesting at the start of the second half and there are few funny scenes between Raviteja and Brahmanandam in this part. But Gunasekhar failed to maintain the same momentum and carry it until the climax. Second half of second half is lengthy and gets on to your nerves.
Too many action episodes and too much fuss about nothing make Nippu unbearable. The track on Deesksha Seth is not properly handled. Even Raviteja fails to shoulder the film this time.
Ever energetic Raviteja looked uninterested in this movie. He simply sleep walked through the character. His usual brand of comic timing is missing too. At times he tried his best to lift the spirits. His combination scenes with Brahmanandam are okay to some extent.
Deesksha Seth is cute. But she needs to learn how to act. She failed to get the basic expressions right which is not a good sign for an upcoming actress. Rajendra Prasad is fine in his limited role. Sriram is just okay. Pradeep Rawath is usual. Brahmanandam’s presence is felt. Mukul Dev is alright. Brahmaji and others did their best as per the script and characterizations.
Thaman’s music is a big letdown. He has been in terrific form in the recent past and Nippu comes as a shocker from the in form music director. Background score is ordinary too. Cinematography is topnotch and Production values are very good. Editing is not up to the mark. Dialogues are average.
Gunasekhar has once again disappointed with a poor script and bad direction. He is yet to hit the form and Nippu will further harm his reputation. Gunasekhar should concentrate on the script as he still has that in him to make a complete action entertainer. Accepting stories from other writers may help him to get back to pre Okkadu days.
Nippu is a routine film with too many fights and weak script. Only Raviteja is the saving grace and it is highly doubtful for him to save this film from sinking at the box office.
Nippu Movie Rating: 2.25/5
