Ee Nagaraniki Emaindi review - Aimed at urban youth

Director Tharun Bhascker was at the forefront of the renaissance of Telugu Cinema. His previous outing Pelli Choopulu stands as the pinnacle of low budget high-quality movies. Now he has come up with one more youthful entertainer in the form of Ee Nagaraniki Emaindi. Let's see if this movie also stands the test of time like his the movie before with Ee Nagaraniki Emaindi review. 

Four friends

What can you think about a movie which has four friends at its core? There are some movies made with such point. But here Tharun Bhascker is a sort of filmmaker who depends on characters and characterisations rather than a story. He seems to have followed an idea and developed it by introducing four main characters into an atmosphere. 

Here four friends Vivek (Vishwaksen Naidu), Karthik (Sushanth Reddy), Kaushik (Abhinav Gomatham), and Upendra (Venkatesh Kakumanu) meet up after a period of time for the wedding of Karthik. They go on a drinking rampage and end up in Goa without knowing. There they plan to make a short film for a competition. 

But there are clashes of personalities (they are today's youth moreover). Vivek who suffers from love failure has short temper. Karthik wants to get married and settle in life. Kaushik is a funny guy with hilarious antics. And there is Upendra. How or if they complete the short film and what happens to Karthik's marriage and Viveks love forms the crux of the story, or rather a slice of life. 

Abhinav steals the show

First and foremost, we have to talk about Kaushik portrayer, Abhinav Gomatham. He is a natural and his comedy makes you split. If Pelli Choopulu had given us Priyadarshi Pulikonda who is equally adept at comedy and serious characters, Ee Nagaraniki Emaindi gives us Kaushik aka Abhinav. He steals the show is an understatement. You have to watch the movie to believe it. 

Vishwaksen is great as Vivek. His expressions in serious moments and his portrayal of a guy with a short temper showcases his talent. Sushanth Reddy and Venkatesh Kakumanu gave their best as the other two friends. Anisha Ambrose shines in a small role she is given. She is cute. Simran Chowdhary is nice. 

Vibrant filmmaking

Tharun Bhascker took a gap before coming up with this movie. As he had said in several interviews, he doesn't want to ride on Pelli Choopulu success. He also didn't bother to go with big star movies despite the fact that he can get a star hero for his next film. All he wants is actors to portray the characters he created. 

You have to give it to Tharun Bhascker to come up with one more youth-friendly new age film. His direction is good and where he shines most is in the script department. The scenes he created and the acting he obtained from the artists is nothing short of fantastic. Dialogues and narration are natural. He crossed the second film curse successfully.

Well supporting crew

Music by Vivek Sagar is brilliant. He elevated the youthfulness of the movie. The sounds are different and complemented the narration. The cinematography by Niketh Bommireddy is exceptional. He caught the vibrancy of the director's vision. Editing could have been a bit better in the initial stages. The production values are grand as obvious. The movie has a posh look.


On a whole, Ee Nagaraniki Emaindi delivers on the promise by Tharun Bhascker and some more. Slick narration in the second half, natural comedy, Abhinav's acting, music, and vibrant cinematography make the film a worth watch. Just gather your friends and watch it. The film is Tollywood's answer to Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara.

Ee Nagaraniki Emaindi Preview

What is Ee Nagaraniki Emaindi about?

Ee Nagaraniki Emaindi is the brainchild of Tharun Bhascker Dhassyam. Who is this guy with a numerologically spelled name? This guy has already made waves in Tollywood with his debut movie. Ee Nagaraniki Emaindi is the follow-up to his highly successful small movie. The prestigious Suresh Productions is producing this movie. 

Ee Nagaraniki Emaindi is the story of four friends and their daily life adventures. Since the announcement of the title, Ee Nagaraniki Emaindi created high expectations. The film stars Vishwaksen Naidu, Sushanth Reddy, Abhinav Gomatam, Venkatesh Kakumanu, Anisha Ambrose and Simran Chowdary in the lead roles. Almost all of them are new faces. 

With Vishwaksen Naidu, the movie promises to have a great acting talent. This guy is capable of giving apt histrionics to each scene. Anish Ambrose is a talented actress. And her character seems to be the anchor like in the movie which will play a crucial role in the what seems to be a coming of age drama. 

What to expect from Ee Nagaraniki Emaindi?

Tharun Bhascker's direction

What can anyone expect of a movie which is made on a shoestring budget of less than one crore? What can anyone make when they have an unproven cast and ultra-low budget to make a film?

Tharun Bhascker answers this question with a punch. Of course, he need not tell the answer. He had shown it with Pelli Choopulu. The movie didn't just score well at the box office. It created wonders in many ways. Critics went gaga over the movie. It didn't just stop there. It received a couple of National Awards in the form of Best Telugu Film and Best Screenplay Award. 

Now that he is coming up with one more youthful entertainer with a grittily realistic setting, the expectations shot up to the sky. He is backed by an experienced production house like Suresh Productions. From what was evidenced by the trailer, the movie is going to be a tour de force.

All new storyline

There are movies about filmmaking with film stars. We have recently experienced one such movie. But the protaginists of this movie plan to make a short film. One wants to groove at home by drinking wine. One more has an attitude of the length of a railway line from Kashmir to Kanyakumari. Everything is backed up by a talented cast handpicked by the director. 

Vivek Sagar music

Vivek Sagar is not just another music director. For the movie Pelli Choopulu, Tharun Bhascker's previous entry, he experimented with sounds and delivered a memorable album in a long long time. Now, he is coming up with his work for an ultra modern youthful entertainer promises a lot. 

A Suresh Productions film

Suresh Productions has a great history. It had produced numerous landmark films. No need to talk about the production values. Its a guarantee that the movie will be a visual feast. When they make a movie, it's a guarantee that it is different in every possible way. That they are producing a movie with a newcomer of a director is enough of a pull to watch.
