With Rowdy Boys, top producer Dil Raju’s nephew Ashish Reddy makes his Tollywood debut. The film was shot on a budget of around Rs 25 crores, and it featured prominent technicians such as Devi Sri Prasad and Madhiee. Anupama Parameshwaran plays the leading heroine in this youthful entertainer directed by Sree Harsha. The trailer of Rowdy Boys had a positive reception from the youth. The producers are Sri Venkateswara Creations, and here is a review of Rowdy Boys:
Akshay (Ashish) is a first-year BTech student who is fascinated by Kavya, an elder girl (Anupama Parameshwaran). Kavya is a doctor whose college mates are constantly at odds with the boys from the neighboring BTech campus. Despite the fact that the two colleges are rivals, Kavya begins to like Akash. To get away from the campus quarrels, Kavya Akshay entered a live-in relationship. The rest of the film follows the lovers’ professional and personal lives.
The film ‘Rowdy Boys’ begins with college scenes that are more relevant to today’s kids. Many films in recent years have attempted to be youthful pictures, but they were all either cheap or unrelatable. In this film initial portions vibrantly represented true college life. Throughout the first half, Ashish as Akhsay and Anupama Parameswaran’s return as Kavya all performed admirably.
When the leading couple begins to live together, the film begins to lose steam. The conflict point of the heroine’s father’s request to the hero later doesn’t appear to be very believable. After a break, Anupama Parameswaran has a Telugu film, and she is still looking terrific. Anupama and Ashish’s lip lock sequences are bold and long, comparable to those in Bollywood blockbusters. Sequences such as the hero and his buddies forming a musical band called the “Rowdy Boys” are simply copied from Bollywood films. Ashish, the debut hero, is at ease in front of the camera, and if he can choose decent scripts, he will have a long career ahead of him. The comic episode of ‘Gundello Yesayya’ turned out good. The technical departments of cinematography, music, and editing, among others, are excellent. Sri Harsha, a young director, has potential, but he needs to work on developing a stronger plot. Overall, an ambitious project has resulted in mediocre results.
- Youth relatable scenes
- Production values on par with a high budget film
- Decent performance by Debut hero Ashish
- Heroine Anupama Parameswaran is good
- Devisri Music and Songs visuals
