John Apparao 40+ Tollywood Movie Review

Story :
An offbeat theme, the story is about Apparao (Krishna Bhagawan) who is a very talented and successful designer and has good friends with likes of Maruti, Rajesh (Rajesh), Tarun (Melkote), Duradaraju (Jeeva) and others. He takes care of the marriage of his three sisters also but in this process he crosses 40 years and after trying various attempts he is almost on the verge of giving up the thoughts of marriage. Enters Chakri (Prabhakar) who tells him that November 22nd will be the day his whole life will change when a woman will come and fall in love with him. Just like he mentioned comes Pravalika (Simran) based in UK who is a journalist and meets Apparao to get a dress designed from her. The designer falls for the beautiful journalist and later she asks him to come to UK along with her and Apparao's dreams to start a new life blossom. But then what he does not realize is Pravalika is actually planning to get him killed to get an interview with John (Krishna Bhagawan), who along with Razzaq (Sayaji) plants a bomb in a market which causes the death of several people. Twist of events happen and Apparao realizes Pravalika's motive and is shattered. What happens after that? Is she successful in her attempts? All this forms the rest of the story.

John Apparao 40+ Telugu Cinema Review

Director has put his best efforts to rake in laughter with a different story line. The subject chosen is definitely interesting but then it is important that the narration and presentation should be on par with the story. The major culprit is the editing, which was so frequent that it is more of a visual disturbance than anything else. The music is acceptable and all the songs which are basically remixes was variety. Few locations in the songs have been captured well and other departments were just about okay. Krishna Bhagawan was the whole life of the movie with his magnetic dialogue delivery and did his best to carry the movie throughout, Simran did provide the right amount of glamour, but then she must give up the thoughts of coming back as a heroine, the comedy track was very flimsy and the talents of Ali, Raghu Babu,Venu Madhav, Rajesh has been purely wasted. One really does not understand why a talented and potential actor like Sayaji Shinde accepts such roles. The item song 'Kajra Mohabbat Wala' had some pretty girls.

John Apparao 40+ Filem Review

What was meant to be a comedy entertainer turned out to be a drag and there was no energy right from the start. The first half was just okay with the different concept and the budding of romance between the lead pair, but then the second half was an absolute pain with dragged scenes and boring sequences. At no part has the movie been able to connect to the audience and the characters were so mild that even the audience sat there like they were just waiting to lie down and sleep. Film makers must realize that comedy's strength lies in the script and screenplay and even if one of them is missing, nothing can be done. The film could have been a lot better if Venkat had focused on building the momentum and concentrated on getting in a better editor. One thing is for sure, the editing is pathetic and will be a major cause for the film's failure. There is an overdose of bananas in the film, which almost covered around 40 minutes of the story.

Bharatstudent verdict : It's ok if watched with no expectations.
