The debut director Srinivas Gogineni is unconventional and his lame narration not only lets down the hearty effort of Satyraj, but also affects the brand name of Sai Korapati presenting the film as producer. There even quite a few loopholes in the film, like the Trimurthulu sons stay outside the village for many years to take their revenge on Satyaraj, but they never attack on him till their representative wins elections. In the initial part of the film, Satyaraj and his followers survive a bomb blast which blasts on them. There is no reason showcased, about why did Ravi Varma support his opponent team to kill Satyaraj. (Spoiler) No one really cares about Pavithra Lokesh’s death. With so many holes, director gives an open ending to the subject with message (But that doesn’t make a sense as Satyraj followers still on fire to kill the opponents and the meantime, antagonists trying to kill everyone supporting Satyraj). The major issue with Thungabhadra is it deviates from the original plot and the episodes between the lead pair itself are slow. Then there is over-dosage of action and no wonder the movie was given “A” certificate. When the entire episode moves to revenge, we start seeing the shades of few other films. The placements of the songs are good, but not even a single track impresses us with its picturization. Musician Hari Gaura music is mediocre, while the BGM is good. Editing of the film should have been crispier. Cinematography by Rahul Srivasthav is one of the major assets of the film. Dialogues in the film are catchy. Production values of Varahi Chalana Chitram are all right.Director Srinivas had a tough task to extend an hour long story into a two hour film and he fills the space with lots of unneeded jokes and over the top characterizations. Over the top isn’t inevitably bad, but it has to be good enough for the viewer to deluge into it completely and this film fails to achieve that. So instead of enjoying the characterizations, we start laughing at them and it’s very difficult to slot Tungabhadra into a genre. There are strains of drama, romance, comedy, action and the derisory in the film. What it doesn’t have is something that binds all of this together. Director makes an outré mash-up of several genres and ends up with a film that doesn’t do justice to any.Adith Arun,Dimple Chopde,Srinivas Gogineni,Sai Korrapati,Hari Gaura.Tungabhadra – Leaves No Impression.
