Movie Review: After debacles like "Mangala" and "Dongala Mutha," looks like luck is not on Charmee's side. With the release of "Nagaram Nidra Pothunna Vela," where she plays a journalist, Charmee fails to impress and the director falls short of telling a story.
Niharika (Charmee) is an honest journalist, who strives to highlight social issues. But her boss (Ahuti Prasad) wants her to do only 'breaking stories' that can boost the channel's TRP ratings. She then decides to explore the illegal and corrupt activities that happen at night in the city. While on the beat, she meets an alcoholic, Shivram Prasad (Jagapathi Babu). Meanwhile, some goons, who work for a political leader, want to kill her. Shivram Prasad rescues her but injures himself in the process. That is when she decides to fight against the corrupt politician. Why the political leader wanted to kill Charmee forms the rest of the story.
The subject of the film is nothing new. Director Prem Raj, who wanted to showcase the present political scenario and corruption in the state bores you with his slow narration. The first half of the film plays out like a documentary with Charmee walking through the streets and meeting alcoholics, prostitutes and cops. One can't understand why a lone journalist walks through the roads looking out for a breaking story in the middle of the night?
Charmee, who wears spectacles in this film to look like an intelligent journalist is not convincing. Jagapathi Babu too wasn't impressive. Paruchuri brothers, who are known for writing dialogues for this genre of movies, dole out surprisingly weak fare. The music too is nothing to write home about.
The only noteworthy element in the whole film is that it is shot quite well with a digital camera by Lakshmi Narasimhan. But apart from that, it's one movie that put the audience to sleep.
