Needi Naadi Oke Katha Review & Rating


Parents want their children to be in the best possible position both in life and in career. But not all parents listen to the hearts of their children. Quite often it is considered a career only when it is either medicine or engineering. In India, anything other than that is taken as a failure. But life is not just about engineering or medicine. It has different shades to explore. What is the ultimate goal of life? Being in a profession everyone thinks wow? Or being happy doing whatever we can do? Many in the society follow the lead of others and think they are moving in a right direction. But only few can create their own path. We watch the story of Sagar who carves his own path in his life 

Needi Naadi Oke Katha is a tale of Sagar and his father. Sagar wants to be loved by his father. He had great memories with his father from his childhood. But as years passed on in his educational career, things start to go awry. Sagar's father wants his son to be state first or the best in education. But Sagar often scrapes through the examinations. As he fails to fulfill the dreams of his father and a cold war starts between the father and son. Sagar feels that people like those loved by his father, ideal students do not exist.

In one of his conversations with his younger sister, he challenges that if any such ideal student exists, he will bow to them. One day, his sister tells him about Dhaarmika. Dhaarmika is an ideal girl, who has nothing but gaining good marks as her aim. Sagar follows her everywhere and finally asks her to help him become a person his father loves. Then starts the magical story of Sagar, Dhaarmika, and his father. Is Sagar's dream of fulfilling his father's wishes come true? Has Sagar found his true path? What is the role of Dhaarmika in his journey towards salvation forms the crux of the story.

Sree Vishnu excelled in the role of Sagar is an understatement. We can see only Sagar and his struggle to become the person of his father's dreams on the screen. By midway through the first half, we find ourselves traveling with Sagar, and his struggle becomes ours. Such is the performance of Sree Vishnu in Needi Naadi Oke Katha. His expressions in various moods and his dialogue delivery are impeccable as a middle-class guy. Webcam watches the movie just to experience his performance. But the highlights are not going to stop there.

Director Devi Prasad played the father character and he excelled as a middle-class man who wants his children to settle. His scenes in combination with Sree Vishnu forms the backbone of the movie. 
Satna Titus as an ideal student who helps Sagar reaching the goal is amicable. She did a competent job in this film and proved to be an ideal folly for Sree Vishnu. The girl who played the sister of the hero has given a very natural performance. Rest of the cast make a mark on our hearts with their performance. Every character in this movie is memorable. 

Now to the real hero of Needi Naadi Oke Katha. Venu Udugula came up with a story of everyone. It is the same in every household. Parents treat children as their dream machines. They want their children to settle. They treat their children as the representation of their divinity in the society. But often they fail to understand the real capabilities of their children. Venu treated this universal subject in an objective manner. He represented both sides of the coin on equal footing. His direction is top notch. His work can be mistaken for a veteran. The screenplay is fluid and not one scene comes as a hindrance to the flow of the narration. Full marks for him to come up with a subject identifiable with everyone and treated it like never before.

Music by Suresh Bobbili complements the narration and creates the mood. His background score towards the climax is a perfect example of blending with visuals. The cinematography is natural and the silhouettes are captured very well. As the movie is made with Dogme 95 manifesto, we find the visuals natural without added Colorado grading. The movie appears like happening before our eyes. Editing did a nice job. There are no jerky scenes bad transitions. The scenes and shots flow quite naturally. Locations are quite authentic. 

Production values are first rate. The movie has arresting visuals. Nara Rohit who produced (presented) Needi Naadi Oke Katha made a surprise cameo in this movie towards the end of the story. His character pushes the story forward towards an amazing climax.

Finally, Needi Naadi Oke Katha is not a movie to be watched. It has to be experienced. It's the story of everyone and gives inspiration to those who needed it. It is a tale of Sagar finding the meaning of his life. He starts like Siddhartha and becomes a Buddha by the ending. The narration creates interest in the audience. Though few scenes feel repeated, it doesn't feel boring. The director Venu Udugula comes up with a top class movie. It is quite rare in Indian cinema to keep the audience glued to the seats with the power of storytelling. VenuUdugula did a commendable job. The director depended on story and story and story. Nothing more and created a movie which proves to be a class apart.

    Needi Naadi Oke Katha - For The Youth

    Sree Vishnu scored a super hit with Mental Madhilo and he is now back with another natural performance in Needi Naadi Oke Katha. The film starts on a sloppy note and it takes a while to adjust to the Rayalaseema slang the actors use. But once the core theme and characters are set, Sree Vishnu lits the screen with his amazing performance. Being a less experienced actor, he carries the entire film on his shoulders and impresses us with his natural performance. The second best thing about the film is that it is relatable to everyone and one can identify with the role Sree Vishnu plays in the film. The music and background score are superb and so was the camera and artwork. The director chooses a realistic story and presents in a natural manner with meaningful dialogues. Go for it, you'll like it for sure.
