Telugu movie ‘All the Best’ has hit the screens. JD Chekravarthy has directed this venture. After directing back to back flops, the man is once again on the scene. The movie stars JD Chakravarthy, Srikanth, Lucky Sharma, Raghu Babu, Krishna Bhagavan, Rao Ramesh, Brahmaji and Chandra Mohan. The music has been scored by Hema Chandra. The film has been produced by J Sambasiva Rao under the banner of Sudha Cinema.
All the Best has nothing appealing and alluring for the viewers. The movie is a letdown from start till the end. Pick any department of the film and you are disappointed. The direction has no potential to lure the viewers. Director does not have any kind of power to bind the viewers on their seats. The plot of the movie is as old as hills. The script is the biggest disaster. Since JD, the director of the film who also acts in it, knew that he made flops previously, he should have come up with strapping script and direction to fetch the audiences’ attention but why he again came up with a mundane product is weird?
The film talks about Ravi (Srikanth) who badly needs money to get the bail of his father who is in jail for a cheating case. For this, Ravi goes to a conman Chandu (Chakravarthy) and together they both join hands and scheme a heist. They get the task to sell a land to one billionaire and after this, they would get Rs. 1 crore in turn. What happens next is what forms the rest of the story.
The director has taken the inspiration from some international flicks and he added his own masala of comedy to the narrative. The Telugu touch has also been added into the script to allure the local audiences. JD totally fails to work on a healthy script since it is laced with many flaws. Comedy too has not been done brilliantly well and seems boring at times.
Screenplay, as mentioned above, is weak and carries many flaws. It is simply boring and has no life at all. There is no scene which you can praise for.
Music by Hema Chandra is boring and does not appeal at all. Cinematography is poor. Editing is amateurish. Dialogues are weak.
JD Chekravarthy does not impress at all with acting as well. Srikanth does somewhat fine. The entire rest of the cast is simply dull.
On the whole, All the Best is simply a boring film which must be avoided.
