Sankranthi is one such a festival season in which makers try to release their movies to encash the holiday season. Every Sankranthi is indeed a festival for movie lovers with the release of new movies back to back. This Sankranthi too is one such season filled with many releases in the name of NTR, Vinaya Vidheya Rama, Peta and F2 (Fun & Frustration). Except for F2, every movie is released into theatres without clashing with each other. F2 is a film which stars Venkatesh, Varun Tej, Tamanna Bhatia and Mehreen Pirzaada, directed by Anil Ravipudi and produced by Dil Raju. This movie is going to be a laugh riot with Victory Venkatesh back to his superb comedy timing, going by the promos. Let’s see how it works on us.
Venky (Venkatesh) is PA to an MLA who don’t have a family. He earns well and seeks a companion. Matrimony guys set his marriage with Harika (Tamanna Bhatia) who hails from an eccentric family. He then starts to experience the flaws of her and her family. Varun (Varun Tej) is a local guy who is on a plan to set up his restaurant. He has a girlfriend named Honey (Mehreen Pirzada). They are on their plans to get married and he too starts to experience the flaws even before marriage. Both Venky and Varun with the suggestion of a neighbour, fly off to Europe to teach a lesson to Harika and Honey on the marriage day of Varun. Do they succeed in their motive? What does Harika and Honey do to get them back?
Victory Venkatesh has got his kind of hilarious character after a long time and he did his best and made the audience jump on their seats with their laughs. Varun Tej did fine in his role and he too managed to complement Venkatesh. Tamanna and Mehreen are good. Rajendra Prasad and Prakash Raj entertain well. Annapurna and another actor who did granny role are nice. Pragathi, Vennela Kishore, Srinivasa Reddy, Nutan Naidu and Prudhvi are good. Every character that comes in the movie did well.
Technical Aspects :
Music by DSP is just about okay and so was his background score. Dialogues are hilarious and director Anil has used them in right situations. Production values by Dil Raju are top notch as the film looks rich and the Europe visuals have been showcased in a good manner by the camera department. Editing is decent but one song in the second half could have been avoided.
Coming to the director Anil Ravipudi, he has done a good job with the film. He has used Venkatesh’s potential to full use and created good comedy at regular intervals. He knows the audience pulse clearly and narrated the film is a simple manner. If he would have added some more logic and fun in second half the output would have been superb.
On the whole, F2 is a happy fun film which can be watched with your entire family. Vintage Venky is back and he makes sure that there is all-round entertainment in the film. There is no proper story or logics in the second half but this a kind of a film which should be enjoyed keeping aside all those minor issues. As the Sankranthi season is on, the film will get a wider reach as it has simple and neat fun which will appeal to many. Go watch it.
