Kotha Kothaga Movie Review : While entertaining in parts, this romantic drama gets undone by cliches

Story: Sidhu (Ajay Aman), a simpleton studying in an engineering college, falls for Rajee (Virti Vaghani), his junior. Rajee comes from a wealthy household, and she is precious to everyone in the family. However, an incident in her 10th class makes her draw clear-cut boundaries with boys, making Sidhu’s life difficult, and he struggles to communicate his love for her. Meanwhile, Rajee agrees to marry someone else. Will she ever know about Sidhu’s love? Is there a twist in the story?

Review: Right from the word go, the film dwells in a known territory, which the Telugu audience has experienced repeatedly. Freshers in an engineering college, a group of friends hanging around, a bad guy trying to tease a girl, the protagonist coming to the rescue, and the list continues. Actors Ajay Aman and debutant Virti Vaghani gave decent performances, but the writing and screenplay could have been much better in terms of entertainment, engagement and refinement.

Towards the end of the first half, the song Priyathama, sung by Sid Sriram, composed by Shekar Chandra and written by Anantha Sriram, is in a league of its own. It elevates the emotion, and it was indeed sung and picturised well. However, the second half changes its tone and tilts towards glamour and romance.

Actors Kalyani Natarajan, Kumar Sai, Pawan Tej, Kasi Viswanadh, Tulasi Shivamani, Anand Bharati and others did their jobs well to their limitations. The crew includes DOP Venkkut, choreographer Hari Kiran, Art director Suresh Bhimagani, editor Prawin Pudi, lyricists Krishna Chaithanya, Anantha Sriram, Shree Mani, Kasarla Shyam, and music director Sekhar Chandra.

Overall, Kotha Kothaga, directed by Hanumaan Vasamsetty, narrates a romantic college love story set in the backdrop of an engineering college. Unfortunately, while some scenes and a couple of songs appeal to the senses, the film gets undone by cliches.
