The key dramatise personae, consisting of the hero, heroine and director, in the making of the film have great stakes in it. The hero Varun Tej is yet to taste commercial success as a hero in his career of 5 films (“Fidaa” is his sixth) and is desperate for a blockbuster. Sai Pallavi is making her debut in Telugu and would certainly like to prove herself. Sekhar Kammula has been out of favour with the industry for quite some time and is seeking to make a come-back with “Fidaa”. Let us see if the film helps each one of them.
Varun (Varun Tej) lives in the USA. He comes to India to get his brother married. Upon coming to his homeland he sees and falls in love with Bhanumathi (Sai Pallavi). Over a time she too reciprocates his love. Unfortunately however, the two hesitate to express their feelings for each other. After returning to the USA Varun expresses his love for Bhanu. He even proposes to the girl but his proposal is turned down by Bhanu. The rest of the story is all about why she turned down his proposal in the first place and what happens thereafter. Do the lovers unite finally?
“Fidaa” is bound to connect well with the audiences. The narration includes all the elements that a Sekhar Kammula film has for a younger generation. The first half is the best and raises hopes of an exciting second half. However, the film disappoints in the second half. The comedy and romance shown are simply superb. The second half is a mite dragging and boring. The story proceeds on expected lines so the audiences know what is going to happen next. This steals some of the fun away. The director rushes through with the climax. The film succeeds in creating the typical Telangana nativity superbly through its characters. In totality however, the film is an out and out Sekhar Kammula film. Every frame of the movie reflects the director’s style. He does make a come-back with a bang.
Performance of the Stars:
Varun Tej was perhaps painfully aware that he has not churned out even one commercially successful film so far in his career. That is what perhaps propelled him to give a very mature performance in “Fidaa”. He strikes the right emotions and indulges in no overacting. He really appears to have matured as an actor. He looks much more handsome in this film than he did in the past. Sai Pallavi, the heroine of the film comes up with an excellent performance literally stealing the thunder from under everyone’s nose. Her Telangana accent, her looks so typical of a Telangana girl and even her acting in the more emotional scenes earns her full marks. Her performance is bound to bring her close to the Telugu audiences. She can certainly expect more films coming her way from Tollywood. She is certainly here to stay. Other actors and actresses did justice to their respective roles.
Music by Shakti Kant is very soothing with the songs fitting very appropriately into the sequences. Vijay C Kumar’s cinematography brilliantly captures the essence two different worlds – west and east. The dances of the heroine have been choreographed and performed very well. The director succeeds in extracting the best from each member of his team. He merits full marks for portraying Sai Pallavi’s character wonderfully.
The Final Word:
“Fidaa” is certainly wholesome entertainment for the entire family.
