Nela Ticket Review & Rating|
The story of the hero
Ravi Teja who once ruled the roost with his special genre of movies has been suffering from failures these days for the most part. Now and then he may be scoring hits, but blockbuster has become rare for him. He even took a long break from films before his comeback with Raja the Great. But the charm he exuded previously is missing these days.
Keeping his fans happy and the general audience interested, Ravi Teja scored a hit with Raja the Great, but that seems to be a one-off moment. Touch Chesi Chudu failed to attract the audience so much so that His latest offering failed to rake up enough bucks from the distributors compared to his previous venture.
But all is not as bad as it seems to be. Kalyan Krishna Kurasala came up with Nela Ticket and the movie is surrounded by buzz among the audience with its massy title and interesting title. The dialogues in the trailer about old people were appreciated. Suddenly, people started to think the Mass Maharaja is back to his elements.
Mumbai beauty Malvika Sharma did her part in promoting the movie by selling tickets at Sandhya theatre. Let's see if everything worked out well and Ravi Teja lit up the box office this time with Nela Ticket review.
The story that cannot be found
Nela Ticket saw Ravi Teja as an orphan. Being an orphan and without anyone who can be thought of as own, he tries to find bonding with those around him. Aditya Bhupathi (one more Bhupathi character for Jagapathi Babu) is a politician with a cruel mind like he should have for movies like this. Nela Ticket helps those around him as a good hero should do and their paths cross at one time.
When hero and villain face each other, sparks fly. Aditya Bhupathi is the sort of man who loves to rake up money. He wants as much money as possible. He doesn't even hesitate to kill his father as he is giving away lavish amounts for charity. Obvious for a Tollywood villain. Why and they came to face each other and how the hero solves all the problems created by the villains forms the crux of the story.
Is this really the same guy?
First, we have to talk about the director. Kalyan Krishna Kurasala made films like Soggade Chinni Nayana and Rarandoi Veduka Chudham. He revived Nagarjuna's romantic image with Soggade. He delivered a hit to Naga Chaitanya when he needed. This time, he tried his hand in making a Ravi Teja film. Means, he wanted to make an oora mass movie.
He didn't even seem to have done the homework. The characters are bland. Even the energetic Ravi Teja has nothing to do much in the movie. The villain's character is a caricature. See, when we are talking about the story, heroine's role didn't crop up. Not even her whereabouts.
Add to that, she is too young and her chemistry with Ravi Taja failed to work. You get a feeling that.... of course, we shouldn't talk about it. An actor like Jagapathi Babu carried the same expression throughout talks volumes about the director's failure in creating intriguing characterisations.
The less we talk about the rest, the better. Names and talents like Brahmanandam (what he is doing in the movie?), Prudhvi, Priyadarshi (it is a crime to have Priyadarshi in the movie and not giving him a proper character), and every other actor appear on screen... They are wasted in insignificant roles.
The cinematography is above average. He didn't even try to show Ravi Teja with proper lighting. Music is mediocre. Background score is too loud. We can get a doubt. Is this really the guy who scored music for Fidaa? The same we can think of the director. Is this the same guy who delivered Soggade Chinni Nayana and impressed Nagarjuna so much so that he immediately gave him a movie with Naga Chaitanya?
Production values are decent. Art work is found lacking.
Nela Ticket first half is mediocre. The second half raises the dose with over sentiment. The story is as old and beaten to death as possible. Narration is straight out of the 1970s. Characterisations given to the hero and villain are bland. Right from the first frame, we get the doubt that 'is this the guy...'. Aren't there any positives about the movie? Yes. Ravi Teja and Jagapathi Babu make the proceedings bearable in the first half. One more positive is: the movie finally ends.
Verdict: Take your own decision please.
Nela Ticket Critic Reviews
Nela Ticket User Reviews
nice movie . jagapathi Babu acting is super and Ravi Teja is a very mass hero in this movie
Amid high expectations, Mass Maharaja Ravi Teja's Nela Ticket hit the screens. With an ultra mass (oora mass) title and an emotional central point (as hinted in the trailer), Nela Ticket promises to be a paisa vasool entertainment this week. New face Malvika Sharma joined Ravi Teja in a tomboyish medico role. With Kalyan Krishna Kurasala at the helm, there was a pre-release buzz among the fans of the hero. But the movie seems to be disappointing as the early morning and morning shows getting underway.
Stay tuned for Nela Ticket live updates and review.
What is Nela Ticket about?
One way to describe it: a mass entertainer. A quintessential Ravi Teja film. Known as Mass Maharaja, Ravi Teja is one of the very few Telugu heroes to come up with movies in regular intervals. But, before Raja the Great, he has taken a long break by his standards. As he has said in an interview, there is no specific reason for the break and now there is no reason to come up with movies quickly as is his wont.
Nela Ticket is directed by Kalyan Krishna Kurasala. Ram Talluri is producing this movie on SRT Entertainments. The movie has Shakthi Kanth Karthik composing the musical score. As Ravi Teja himself revealed the movie deals with the story of an orphan played by Ravi Teja and how he tries to find a bond with those he comes into knowing. The movie also talks about old people and their plights.
What to expect from Nela Ticket?
Ravi Teja all the way
As far as Telugu Cinema concerns, Ravi Teja is synonymous with energy. He portrays aggressive characters and excels in comedy with equal ease. When things tick well, no one can entertain the audience as Ravi Teja does. Not for nothing, he is called Mass Maharaj. As is evidenced from the trailer and from what Ravi Teja himself says, the movie is going to be a quintessential Ravi Teja movie with everything the fans want from his movies.
In Nela Ticket he plays the role of an orphan. He searches for bonding in everyone with whom he has an acquaintance. Also, the title is not just for mass appeal. It represents where the character played by Ravi Teja comes from. Also the dialogue he utters about old people hints at the strong emotions the movie is going to showcase.
Kalyan Krishna Kurasala direction
Previously, Kalyan Krishna Kurasala delivered movies like Soggade Chinni Nayana and Rarandoi Veduka Chudham. Both movies have strong family bonding alongside romance and entertaining comedy. Nela Ticket promises to deliver both alongside what the audience expect from a Ravi Teja movie. Not only the mass elements, the story talks about old people. This gives out the emotional core of the movie.
Strong comedy and support actors
Brahmanandam! The name is enough to evoke laughter from the audience. His comedy acts with Ravi Teja have entertained millions of people. Now, he is on the team with Ravi Teja in Nela Ticket. Add to him Ali, Posani, Raghu Babu, 30 Years In Industry Prudhvi, and Priyadarshi Pulikonda in the cast, hilarious comedy is guaranteed.
The presence of Jagapathi Babu will add value to the movie. Tanikella Bharani is a value addition. Sivaji Raja, Brahmaji, Ajay, L. B. Sriram, Sampath Raj, Surekha Vani et al are known faces and can make a movie watchable with their performance. All in all Nela Ticket promises to be an out and out mass entertainer with a strong emotional core.
