Big Boss 5 title winner VJ. Sunny came to entertain movie lovers with his film titled, Unstoppable. The film’s title generated interest, as it is named after Balakrishna’s blockbuster talk show Unstoppable. Co-starring noted actor Sapthagiri in a key role, the film has hit the screens today. Let’s see how it fares.
Story: Unstoppable story is about two childhood friends who lead a happy life spending the hard-earned money of their parents and how they face life when confronted with problems. Kohinoor Kalyan (VJ Sunny) and Jilani Ramdas (Saptagiri) lose huge amounts due to betting on IPL. They face the wrath of their family members and in order to recover their lost money, they try various means.
Will they be able to regain their lost money and how Swathi (Nakshatra), Apple (Aqsa Khan), Tilakam (Raja Ravindra), Police Officer Vitthal (Posani Krishna Murali), Sarangapani (Raghu Babu), Ilakatamafiya Baba (Prithvi), Honey Babu (Shakalaka Shankar) are connected to it, forms the crucial crux.
Performances: Cashing in on the craze of his Big Boss reality show, VJ Sunny did this film. He played the lead role. He is okay with his antics but he came up with a singular expression. One gets a feeling that he tried to actors by copying their mannerisms rather than following his own style.
He is fine with his dance movements in a couple of songs. Saptagiri who attained fame as a comedian, later started doing lead roles but he is failing to make any impact. Saptagiri tried to attract viewers with his Telangana accent mixing it with Muslim mannerisms but he just looked ordinary.
Nakshatra who played one of the lead roles got the looks her role turned out to be silly. Aqsa Khan did a special song to entertain viewers.
There are many other well-known comedians in the film. All got inconsequential and silly roles. Posani Krishna Murali and Raja Ravindra tried to attract with their comedy but they failed to do so. Especially Posani’s comedy looks cheap and obscene. 30 Years Prithvi, Bithiri Satti, Raghu Babu, Chammak Chandra, and Lirisha irritate the audience with their stale and routine so-called comedy which tested the patience of the audience.
Technicalities: Unstoppable story of Diamond Ratnababu offered nothing much. In fact, he did not come with any story and banked only on the silly comedy scenes. The comedy scenes turned out to be stale and routine. Only if someone reminds the audience that this is a comedy scene and they should laugh, you barely put a smile on their face. They have a sigh of relief when the first half ends and those who haven’t rushed to the exit doors in the first ten minutes will run away from the theatres. Those who step in for the second half expecting better entertainment will be in for a shock. The narration turns from worse to pathetic and each and every scene drags to the core and there is one dialogue that asks the hero, not to have a dream song. This saves the viewers from additional burdens.
However, the director did not leave the viewers and included an item song making them feel that they are sitting on the thorns and not on the cushions. Diamond Ratnnababu’s narration has no story and the less we talk about the screenplay and direction the better for everyone. Finally, it is not entertainment but ill-treatment in the name of entertainment.
Uddhav, the editor of the film got nothing much to do. As the film lacked the real story and director Ratnababu depended only on comedy scenes that failed to click, he just sat at the editing table just going through the motions.
The cinematography of Venu Muralidhar is just okay as he tried to pass the test and it turned out to be a difficult outing for him. The same is the case with the music director Bheems Ceciroleo. None of the songs are worth mentioning and BGM follows the same pattern.
Dialogues are pretty ordinary and at times turned out to be indecent and have a double meaning. Production values of A2B India Production are average.
Analysis: Unstoppable turns out to be utterly ridiculous. It is an insult to the intelligence of the movie lovers. Writer cum director Diamond Ratnababu, roped in Big Boss fame VJ. Sunny and cast various comedians and named the film Unstoppable and tried to ride on the brand value of Balakrishna’s Unstoppable show.
If anyone gets drawn to the theatres following the title, they are in for relentless and ruthless torture. The film is not even worth a youtube reel and considering all these aspects. Right from the start till the finish, silly scenes pop up in the narration and viewers will be gasping for breath.
To summarize, Unstoppable is a poorly made comedy-drama that has neither good comedy scenes nor drama is impressed the audience. All we suggest is that skip the film during the weekend and look for better options available.
Verdict: Unstoppable torture!
