Organic Mama Hybrid Alludu Movie Review
SV Krishna Reddy, one of the leading directors of the 1990s, has a distinct style. But he has been out of form and action for quite some time. He made a comeback with “Organic Mama Hybrid Alludu” after a lengthy absence.
Let us see if he succeeds in this new inning.
Vijay (Sohel) is an aspiring filmmaker who has had little success. He falls in love with Haasini (Mirinalini Ravi), a wealthy girl. Her father Venkataramana (Rajendra Prasad) is not only rich, but he also prefers to live his life according to traditional values.
When he learns of his daughter’s love affair with Vijay, he is outraged. Why does he have such strong objections to their relationship, and how exactly would this Hybrid alludu manage to win over the organic mama’s heart?
Sohel has tried his hand at many different stunts typical of commercial heroes, but he simply doesn’t have what it takes. As a hero, he fares averagely. Mirnalini Ravi plays a standard type of heroine.
Rajendra Prasad reprises Prakash Raj’s “Race Gurram” role as Organic mama. Despite the cliché nature of his character, Rajendra Prasad gives it some respect.
The comedians have made zero impression. The humour has worn thin. Sunil, however provides, some fun. Varun Sandesh in his brief role is okay.
In addition to directing, SV Krishna Reddy also wrote the script and composed the musical score. The dialogue is reasonably well done, but the songs don’t hold up.
“Allasani Vaari Allika” is the only tuneful track. It’s also clumsy when it comes to editing. The film’s production values are high (which seems to have been largely shot in Ramoji Film city).
Bits and pieces
Old school ideas
This “Organic Mama Hybrid Alludu” provided SV Krishna Reddy, the director of such blockbusters as “Yamaleela” and “Subhalagnam,” with the ideal platform from which to reach today’s younger moviegoers.
He cast Sohel, a star of the reality show “Bigg Boss,” as the film’s protagonist and Mrinalini, of “Gaddlakonda Ganesh” fame, as the film’s heroine. The movie features an impressive cast, and its title is hip as well.
However, what matters is the narration and presentation. Unfortunately, SV Krishna Reddy has not kept up with the times, and the narration is decidedly out of style.
First and foremost, the plotline is clichéd. Krishna Reddy has made an effort to split the story’s comedic and dramatic elements into two distinct tracks. The combination is a disaster. There is no freshness in the film at any point. The stale comedy sequences continue for long stretches of the film.
The jokes are amusing at first, but they become irritating after a while. The Ajay Ghosh subplot is the most tedious aspect of the whole show.
The formula of one scene, a song, a comedy bit, a romantic segment, and a song has become obsolete. So neither the scenes nor the presentation are organic.
Though a bit farcical, the climax is somewhat better. But, when the entire piece is dull, what difference does a single sequence providing solace make?
Overall, “Organic Mama Hybrid Alludu” not only lacks freshness, but it also makes the viewer impatient while watching the proceedings. It’s a test of our patience.
Bottom line: Routine and Rotten
