The first half of the film is fun, never taking itself too seriously and poking fun not just at the moroseness of death but also at the way families usually react to such situations. Rao Ramesh in particular is gold as the eldest son feeling inconvenienced to be taken away from the middle of a business deal and stuck between a rock and a hard place. So is Raashi Khanna as TikTok Queen Angel Aarna, who’s cornered into getting engaged to Sai. Satyaraj too is good as the dying grandfather, wanting to spend time with this whole family one last time.
RATING : 3.3/5
While the story is pretty much predictable, the way Maruthi moves the story forward is engaging so far. Thaman S’ BGM too adds to the vibe of it all, so does the number ‘Oo Bavaa’ and the way it’s shot. It remains to be seen how the second half will fare.
