A sickening piece of unforgivable, unwatchable, unendurable, unfathomable shit.
And that’s the best we can say about this garbage a.k.a. Pravarakyudu.
Acme of Stupidity
What do you do in a South African jungle when a full-grown lion, mane and all and a fierce expression, heads toward you?
Well, if you are a pair of Telugu college teachers you embrace and start acting lovey-dovey in front of the lion.
Why in God’s name would you do that? Apparently, the King of the Forest is sensitive to romantics and leaves them alone.
So to keep the hungry lion at bay we have a song-dance Bangaram in which like a slut in heat, her legs spread wide in an inviting posture and a ridiculous costume around her waist, Priyamani goes through the motions of dancing.
Lion goes away. And so does our sanity.
God, how we wished the lion had made a hearty meal of both Jagapati Babu and that weirdo Priyamani.
But since it’s a Telugu movie after all, the rules of the game dictate that even the lions have to be stupid here. 🙁
By the way, what does our hero Sasi (Jagapati Babu) do in the meantime?
Oh, he does what he does best throughout the movie – act like a moron, often with silly-looking hats.
To believe that this 45-year-old clown is a college student is to believe that pigs can fly, Santa brings the presents on Christmas and virgins are waiting for the Muslim suicide-bombers.
Pravarakyudu is an incredibly fatuous love story of two college mates, who separate and ultimately come together after many years after making an ass of themselves and a monkey of the audience.
Such is the force of love of our hero Sasi (Jagapati Babu) that he leaves a job as Professor of Entomology at Harvard to come back as an ordinary lecturer of Zoology at the obscure Vardhaman College in Hyderabad to romance his old flame, now the ‘Lady Hitler’ principal Sailaja (Priyamani).
Architect of Nonsense
Just in case you are wondering who the possible architect of this vile trash is, it’s a fella called Madan.
This bozo claims credit for the Story, Screenplay, Dialog and Direction, all of it hopelessly bad.
Our guess is that this moron played the stupid lion too (yeah, the one that failed to finish off Jagapati Babu and Priyamani when it had a chance).
As if all of the above nonsense weren’t enough to drive you batty, you have that eternal irritating fixture of Telugu movies Brahmanandam playing amateur detective at the college.
Priyamani or Pee-a-Many
Besides the awful story, one of the biggest disappointments for us in Pravarakyudu was Priyamani.
To think this whacko won the Indian national award for acting boggles the imagination.
The woman can’t dance. By God, the woman certainly can’t act.
Not convincing as a student. Not effective as a principal. Not in the least impressive in the romantic scenes.
A more apt name for this weirdo would be Pee-a-Many considering she copiously peed all over this movie.
Are we so starved of acting talent in India that we hand out awards to such as this wastrel.
As we’ve said in the past, putting lip-stick on a pig does not make it a pretty girl or a good actress last we checked.
You Call this Music
To describe the cacophonous drivel in the movie as music would be a sacrilege.
Here are some of the lines for the Gaalamesi Pattina Chepa song performed to the most atrocious dance:
I am your C A N D Y…Her booty is bigger than a Mercedes Benz. Baby, baby, baby she’s my best friend
As for the dances, if what we saw on the screen represented the dance form then we are Zeenat Aman!
The picturization for all of the songs is just plain awful or a repeat of what we’ve seen before in a gazillion Indian movies.
Do Not Watch
There’s not a single element in this garbage that’s not a testimony to mind-numbing crudeness.
Guys, Pravarakyudu is a sick piece of shit that begs you to show it the middle finger.
Waste not your time or money on junk such as this.
We want our $10 back!
