Film: ‘Rowdy Boys’
Director: Sree Harsha Konuganti
Cast: Ashish Reddy, Anupama Parameswaran, Karthik Rathnam
‘Rowdy Boys’ is another youthful entertainer which made its way to the box office this Sankranthi. The movie launches Ashish Reddy, the nephew of producer Dil Raju, on the Telugu silver screen with Anupama Parameswaran as female lead and Karthik Rathnam and Sahidev Vikram in key roles.
The story is about a ‘Denim shirt hero’ Akshay (Ashish) an engineering student who gets to taste the rivalry with medical students on the very first day of his college. A small situation ends up in fist fights, college bus going up in flames and a war-like situation on the campus. The incident takes away the peace of Akshay’s father (Srikanth Aiyyengar).
However, Akshay takes it casual and like any college-going student, hangs out with his friends who attend college just for the heck of it. But there are some serious ones too who wear the rivalry on their sleeves.
Vikram (Sahidev Vikram) gets along with batchmate Kavya (Anupama Parameswaran), an independent yet fun-loving girl who comes to the city to study from Tamil Nadu. Akshay falls in love with Kavya at the very first meeting. The regular meetups between Kavya and Akshay makes Vikram and his gang angry. Does Kavya accept a carefree Akshay?
After a few initial sequences, ‘Rowdy Boys’ surely gives an appeal of watching ‘Happy Days’ in bits and pieces and of course, glimpses of other college entertainers.
Ashish’s performance as a naive engineering lad is commendable. He scores reasonably well with good dance moves while portraying the right emotions at the right time. The film boasts relatively fresh faces other than Anupama Parameswaran and Karthik Rathnam. Actors like Tej Kurapati, Komali Prasad, Srikanth Aiyyengar in supporting roles have done their bit.
