Sumanth is back with his new film Naruda Donoruda after a streak of failures. This time, he appears to be confident with the product. Naruda Donoruda is the official remake of Bollywood hit film Vicky Donor starring Ayushman Khurana and Yami Gautham.
Dr. Anjaneyulu (Tanikella Bharanai), an infertility specialist looking for a sperm donor finds out Vicky (Sumanth) as a right person. Dr. Anjaneyulu comes to a conclusion that Vicky is helpful after performing test on Vicky’s sperm sample. Dr. Anjaneyulu finally convinces Vicky to turn sperm donor and offers him attractive money. After a while, Vicky gets married to his love interest Aashima Roy (Pallavi Subash). Later Aashima Roy learns that Sumanth is a sperm donor and reacts violently by parting ways with him. How Sumanth convinces and reunites with Aashima Roy is the complete story of the film Naruda Donoruda.
Sumanth is good as Vicky but at times he goes over board with performance and bags dislikes. Pallavi Subash is bad. She neither looks glamorous nor impresses with the performance. Both the lead actors fail to share a good on screen chemistry and all the love scenes that come between them appear to be boring. Tanikella Bharani is wonderful and amazing in the film. He is the only person who entertains us in every scene. Suman Shetty is good in his role. Senior actress Sri Lakshmi played a good role as Sumanth’s mother. All the other actors are good in the given roles.
Production values are good as the film is set up in a decent manner. Background score during the climax is okay and elevates the film well. Music is very disappointing as all the songs come in as huge speed breakers. Editing is average. Dialogues are very good and the one-liners written for Bharani are quite witty.
Coming to the director Mallik Ram, he has done a below average job with the film. His inexperience is clearly shown throughout the film as he does not handle the complex points of the film well. The way he etches out his characters and makes them go over the top goes against the film to an extent.
On the whole, Naruda Donaruda is definitely a bold attempt from Sumanth. He needs to be credited for choosing a risky subject like this and decisions from actors like him can take Tollywood forward. But sadly for Sumanth, the narration is quite disappointing as the film suffers heavily from lack of emotions and is a strictly for adults only. If you completely forget the original and get along with the bold content of the film, you can give this film a shot for Tanikella Bharani and his hilarious act.
