In his 25 year old career, RGV for the first time bagged a U certificate for a film from censor board, which happens to be 365 Days, featuring Nandu and Anaika Soti as the leads. Let’s see what the team has in store for us. Read 365 Days Movie Review on Justtelugu.com.
365 Days Story
Apoorv (Nandu) is a young software employee who falls for Shreya (Anaika Soti). Shreya reciprocates to his love, and with the blessings of their parents, the couple enters wed-lock, within 100 days of their meet. Soon after the wedding, troubles start in their relationship with misunderstandings leading to huge fights. What lead to the problems in their beautiful relationship? How will the couple resolve the issues forms the rest of 365 days.
Nandu proves to be a good actor, and portrayed the emotions quite well. Anaika Soti oozes glamour and she fits the role ably. Posani Krishna Murali entertains in a decent cameo. Krishnudu and Satya Krishna are wasted in poor roles while Geethanjali played an insignificant role.
Camera work is adequate while the musical scores are so-so. Background score is mediocre while the editing could’ve been sharper. The story line is interesting but the screenplay is a put off and the presentation is dragging. Unlike other RGV films 365 Days has nothing to boast off regarding the technical aspects. Production values are standard.
While one expects horror, action and crime subjects from Ram Gopal Varma, the eccentric director surprises us with a love cum family genre subject 365 Days. The story is all about a couple before and after marriage, and how love changes to hatred once they get married, and the ruined relationships.
The story line sounds interesting, but it all ends there. Varma tried to showcase how a couple falls in love, gets married and go to an extent of taking divorce within just 365 days. However, the script is shoddy and screenplay is weak. Too many misplaced songs in the film also test the patience, acting as speed-breakers.
The characterizations are poorly etched and the approach turned boring with loud scenes and forced dialogues. The first half is much shorter, yet it hasn’t had the entertaining scenes, by the time some meaningful scenes come up, audiences already get tired. The climax is abrupt and looked unrealistic. Had RGV has opted for sensible scenes and approach, the film would have been connected to youth and family audiences, but with hardly few interesting scenes, 365 Days turns out to be a half-baked script.
