Movie Critics Pee on Allu Arjun’s Varudu

Telugu film actor star Allu Arjun woke up this morning to find pee flowing all over his face.

No comprende?

You see, Allu Arjun’s latest crap-show Varudu is at the receiving end of critics’ ire.

Here’s what a sample of Indian movie critics had to say on Varudu (sure, some of them do note some positive points but the tone seems to us to be critical):


It is a laudable thought to come up with a presentation of an authentic Telugu wedding but the difference between a thought and getting it onto the screen is like chalk and cheese which is evident here. Gunasekhar has missed the way to do โ€˜Varuduโ€™ impressively…..

Gunasekhar failed not just in the narration but also in conveying anything to the audience. His focus to bring about visual appeal looked more but he neglected the fundamentals like a strong script, deep content, and attention towards details. Cinematic liberties were used to the fullest and there were some absolutely ridiculous scenes which perplexed the audience at many points. Gunasekhar has always been revered as a brand and not just a director but it is with regret that he has lost itโ€ฆand that too big time.


The posters and trailers of Varudu evoked lots of expectations and hype. However, all the expectations were proved wrong with the director once again utterly failed in translating his ideas on the screen properly….Despite a lavish spending, the film failed to give anything worth to the audiences, nor it had a good message that traditional marriages are the need of the hour.


Allu Arjun tried real hard to bring out a performance by stressing every single syllable of the words of which he had no previous knowledge of and ended up seemingly like a junior artist opposite the ‘mighty’ Arya….In this day wherein every maker is trying hard to tighten their films, Gunasekhar pulled off the opposite by dragging the already sluggish screenplay.

I recommend you enter the theater after the first half. So that, Arya is up on screen and you wouldn’t curse the makers too much.

The sheer effrontery of the buffoons.

To put out trash like Varudu and then to dare call it a movie is but a sign of the metastasizing malignancy eating away at the innards of Telugu movies…..Allu Arjun still lives in the la-la land where acting only means moving your legs in some weird poses to the deafening beat of cacophonous drums…..At a theater on the East Coast, the audience was distracted, engaged in chit-chat and frequently sniggering at the nonsense unfolding on the screen suggesting they were not enamored of the film.

    offtopic: Is Angadi Theru released there? It released last week and receiving rave reviews for its offbeat story/screenplay. Story basically deals with the painful life of the guys/girls working in big textile showrooms in Chennai. I haven’t watched it yet but planned for this weekend. Responds:

    Yes, it released here and is still playing.

    We may watch it too this weekend. Not certain, though.

    May be you can give it a try…it contains no punches, no hero worship, no girls dancing in skimpy dresses, no for all usual elements. A rare phenomena in recent tamil cinema. Even the last movie from this director “Veyyil” received lot of accolades and screened at Cannes.

    I like to go but skeptical about the availability of tickets though. However i have ray of hope since Paiyya releasing tomorrow (Karthi & Tamanna) and would be the crowd-puller for this weekend leaving some/more space for AT. Responds:

    1. You write: it contains no punches, no hero worship, no girls dancing in skimpy dresses, no for all usual elements

    Then it can’t be a Tamil film. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    You must be playing an April Fool prank on us, are ya?

    2. BTW, have people in Tamil Nadu heard of Allu Arjun?

      Then it canโ€™t be a Tamil film

      That’s the reason I recommended it as iam not the fan of any of above said elements.

      Of course we know him as the (grand)son of some Telugu producer and for his utopian dance steps – he is known as younger bro of Simbu and grandson of Vijay Responds:

      We couldn’t watch the above YouTube video here because of geographical restrictions imposed by the copyright owner.

      Are you sure, Allu Arjun is not related to Ajith in any way? ๐Ÿ˜‰

        Do Allu Arjun walks from the right-end of the screen to left-end and repeats the same for both scenes and songs?

        does he maintains same tone of dialog delivery in every frame he appears? while shooting does he keep his face in freezer everynight so that it becomes rock-hard so that it never emotes anything on screen?

        – even then eyes wont get freezed, so, does he seeks the help of coolers to hide that through the movie?

        does he looks like a hysteric-patient who caught himself(or forced) before the camera accidentally

        do you feel like puking over the front seater everytime he show up on the screen.

        No OR logic. Only AND logic here. If Allu Arjun passes all the above then of course he is the descendant of Ajith.

        What say? Responds:

        1. Punny. Beri Punny. ๐Ÿ˜‰

        2. You write: Do Allu Arjun walks from the right-end of the screen to left-end and repeats the same for both scenes and songs?

        Allu Arjun is more ‘vertical’ in his approach…jumping up and down irrespective of whether the scene calls for it or how he appears doing those silly maneuvers.

        If Allu Arjun had not been dropped on his head one too many times as a child he’d have grown up into Ajith’s twin or vice versa.

    Any shit works in India if we go by Varudu’s opening in India. Responds:

    We don’t believe Varudu’s opening day collection was a mere Rs.7.28 crores. Must have been Rs 7,280 crore. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Ha ha ha.

    As if we believe any of the numbers coming out of India.

    Every movie is a big shit big hit in Incredible India.
