Mr. Nokia or Mr. Nookayya has well been in news in the media and among the masses from the outset. The movie was being awaited by the viewers and now it has hit the screens. Although Indian cinema is on the move to change but still there are many films which follow the formulaic patterns to make movies on and Mr. Nookayya is one of them. There is nothing wrong if you make focus on hero, put actions and songs into the script but at least there has to be some life in the narrative, which unfortunately Mr. Nookayya lacks in. the film has poor script that spoils the films from tip to toe.
Execution of the movie is simply mundane and lifeless. There is no spark in the direction that the viewer soon gets bored with the sequences taking place on the celluloid. Even you cannot enjoy with the performances by the stars of the movie. The movie is a boring fiesta, which is avoidable or if you want to watch nonetheless you can give it just one watch.
Nookayya or Nokia (Manchu Manoj) is a mobile phone stealer. He can easily come to know that there is a mobile in a distance which he can steal. He steals Anuradha’s (Kriti Karbanda) cell phone at a railway station. Soon he comes to know that the mobile is actually a communication link between Anuradha and Shahjahan Bismil (Murali Sharma), who is a leader of a gang and this gang has abducted Anuradha’s husband Kiran (Raja). In return, the gang demands Rs. 2 crores from her. She is a bank manager and steals the money from the bank to save her husband’s life. Would Nokia be able to save Kiran’s life? This is what the rest of the film talks about?
The direction by Ani Kannekanti is not appealing and lacks totally. The director does not show any potential to bind the viewers till the last reel of the movie. The script is utterly laced with flaws and this is the main cause of dropping the level of the film. The cinematography is just about okay. Editing is average. Music by Yuvan Shankar Raja is not melodious.
Manchu Manoj attracts with his part. Kirti is average. Sana Khan does not appeal at all. Rest of the cast is boring to watch.
On the whole, Mr. Nookayya is a boring film, which is best to be avoided.
Anil Krishna’s directed venture that has also been penned by him, ‘Mr. Nokia’ features Manoj Manchu, Kriti Kharbanda and Sana Khan. Yuvan Shankar Raja scores the music and D. S Rao is the one who produces the flick.
