Ninnu Kori Movie Review

Starring : Nani, Nivetha Thomas, Aadhi Pinisetty
Director : Shiva Nirvana
Producer : D.V.V Danayya
Music Director : Gopi Sunder

Uma(Nani) is a PHD student in Vizag who falls in love with Pallavi(Nivetha Thomas). As time passes by, Pallavi too accepts Uma’s love and them as a mature couple decide to only marry each other when Uma settles down in his career.
But the twist in the tale arises when Pallavi’s dad(Murali Sharma) suddenly fixes Pallavi’s wedding with Arun(Aadi). Left with no choice, both Uma and Pallavi are forced to break up and Pallavi marries Arun.
The proceedings pick up as Uma moves in with Pallavi and Arun. This is where you get to enjoy some typical comedy that Nani is synonymous with.

The first half has a bunch of cute scenes, depicting Uma and Pallavi’s love story, and then the story moves ahead to establish the reasons behind their break-up, why Uma chose career over love, and Pallavi let go of opportunities to reconcile with him.

Post intermission, the narrative continues at a comfortable pace with several interesting elements thrown in to make the audience gasp and even well up at certain points. Attempts by debutant director Shiva Nirvana to stay true to the film’s tagline — Let’s welcome life (by giving it another chance) — is on point. Youngsters would be able to relate with many of the situations shown in the film. The focus is on the complexities of relationships, married life and understanding between a couple.

Ninnu Kori deals with a contemporary and interesting story, which is high on sentiments. The movie does not have commercial distractions and its emotional quotient strikes a chord with the audience of current generation. Besides brilliant scripting and direction, the film also has stellar performances by Nani, Nivetha Thomas and Aadhi.

Rating : 2.75/5
