Forgetfulness can be annoying, especially when you keep slipping, keep getting distracted, keep changing threads in your head. Bhale Bhale Magadivoy takes that inability to an extreme to tell the story of a guy Lucky (Nani) who is easily distracted and forgets what he was doing previously and gets totally engrossed in a new activity. A simple tea can become an elaborate conversation with the tea-maker while a potential father-in-law is kept waiting. A hold on a phone call could end up being forever when his colleagues draw him out for a brief chat.
As a result, Lucky's parents give up all hope of his getting married, especially after he has a very bad experience of forgetfulness with a person considering to marry his daughter to Lucky. Afterall, he might end up leaving his wife in the middle of nowhere and lose himself doing somethng else. However, Lucky falls in love with a Kuchipudi dancer Nandana (Lavanya Tripathi) and destiny seems to rule in his favour when his episodes of forgetfulness culminate in making him look like a large-hearted person. He accidentally saves her sister-in-law when her water breaks pushing her into falling in love with her. However, her father and Lucky share an interesting chemistry and that would give the movie its final twist.
The movie is a laugh riot in the first half. The scene where Lucky forgets his date with her at Prasads, ends up playing carroms and enacts the scene of saving an old man by playing carroms (Shankardada MBBS) to save himself from her wrath is particularly funny. Naresh, who plays Lucky's father in the movie plays a perfect foil to a forgetful son and scenes where his wife and he have to go to extreme ends to conceal the fact that they are a family from Nandana's father are hilarious.
The movie has a rich feel about it, which is characteristic of Geetha Arts. The music by Gopi Sunder, one of the upcoming music directors will get your attention, especially the rock fusion of Endaro Mahanubhavulu that plays out in one of the comical sequences. The movie slows down a wee bit in the second half where the story gets itself into a knot as Maruthi makes it too tough for his character to wade out. The emotional scenes therefore don't pain you because you are still reeling with the first half laughs. Ajay plays a cop who wants to marry Nandana by hook or crook and his character is a little misused at times. He ends up as a needless villain and the movie could've done with another funny character in his place, instead of a menacing crooked cop who doesn't get enough bandwidth for villainy. Lavanya is a decent actress and she manages to hold her own opposite Nani. Nani obviously is the true star of the movie from start to finish and it surprises you, the ease with which he pulls of comedy as well as sentimental scenes. He is gifted and blessed with a movie that actually was backed by a big banner ensured the production values surrounding him were high. As a result, you get to see Nani in an avatar he deserves, a metrosexual boy next door who fits the bill perfectly for a rom-com. Although the movie has a commercial ending, it was a nice touch to make the fight a comic sequence as opposed to a serious one. Murli Sharma as Nandana's father played out his role well and so did Praveen and Vennela Kishore. All in all, it is a clean movie that families can enjoy a lot without any obscenity of any sort. The movie once again establishes Nani as someone who picks movies with scripts and gives his best, ensuring families don't have to cringe watching him.
