Performance of Actors
Parvatheesham made good name for his performance in the film Kerintha. This is the reason the makers of Rojulu Marayi gave title credit as “Kerintha Nookaraju.” Parvatheesham is the major highlight of the film. If the viewers had watched the entire first half comfortably, then the reason is the performance of Parvatheesham. While the new actor Chethan is completely dull, Parvatheesham rocks in every single scene to provide entertainment. The energy and activeness Parvatheesham showed on screen is really very good. Tejaswi Madiwada looks with over make up in the film and her over activeness irritates us some times. She is good in the second half than in the first half. She performed well in the pre climax scenes.
Kruthika is very good looking and also impressed with her subtle performance. Without being over expressive, she portrayed perfect emotions that her roles demanded. Unnecessarily, Vasu Inturi‘s role was designed in a mysterious manner which is of no use to the film. The way he was shown in the first half was not completely justified till the end. He was made joker in the second half if we compare the way he was projected in the first half. Ali is ok in a limited role who tried to bring some laughs.
Tecnical Team Performance
The cinematography of the film by Bal Reddy is good. His framing deserves appreciation. The music by JB is fine. All the songs are captured nicely on screen. The background score is also good. The run time of the film is 130 minutes which looks good while watching the film but the film could be made much crisper especially in the second half. The production values are fine. Lyrics are in sync with the situations.
‘KORADA’ Take On Rojulu Marayi
After watching the theatrical trailer of the film, we easily get a feeling that is is a Routine and Maruthi Brand cinema. Maruthi, in the past met us with the films like ‘Ee Rojullo’, ‘Romance’, ‘Prema Katha Chitram’ and we can see the flavour of these films in Rojulu Marayi trailer. More or less, while watching the film ‘Rojulu Marayi’ we feel no difference. The most annoying part of the film is its narration. The story on paper looks interesting but the narration on screen is completely disappointing. Rojulu Marayi title is not completely justified. Except for a couple of scenes, the title is not perfect for what was presented on the screen.
Maruthi penned the story and screenplay for the film. He tried to bring back the format of Prema Katha Chitram and also tried to revive Balakrishna’s Mitrudu in the film. The failure of the film might be because of failure in execution as too many things were included in the plot and nothing was given complete justification. When everything looks good with romance and comedy, unnecessary elements of comes in between and spoils the plot. With a convincing interval block, the second half goes wrong dealing with horror elements which are of no use. Nothing stays permanently and nothing adds fun or pace to the screenplay. The second half is very pale when compared with the first half. With ups and downs, the first half looks okay and watchable but second half is completely boring.
The dialogues are good in some scenes and they mean double meaning at certain times. The screenplay is weak for the film. For a predictable story line, the screenplay must be engaging. Else, people will get bored easily and lose interest. With such a boring narration and completely logic-less, unconvincing second half, the good moments in the first half gets spoilt. The director Murali fails to impress the audiences. Dont know why big producers like Dil Raju backs projects like these which hardly run for a week in the theatres.
The first half of the film is just okay and by the time you gain some patience to watch the second half, the film tests it to the core. Rojulu Marayi is a film that has got ‘Maruthi Brand’ which existed in all his films before Bhale Bhale Magadivoi. This film disappoints and can be avoided!
