Director Anil Ravipudi is ambitious in taking plot points. We have seen him do slightly dark comedy in Raja The Great and followed typical Telugu movie masala and mixed it with screwball comedy in Supreme. In F2, he went 90’s way and brought back family comedy entertainers to the foray. Now, he has gone Priyadarshan way.
A typical Priyadarshan comedy uses all genres in comedy and depends on situations, characters. Trailer of F3 gives similar feel. The tempo. jokes, characterizations of leads, breaking the 4th wall, physical comedy and references to real life. Everything that late 80’s and 90’s comedy entertainers that followed template set by Priyadarshan, EVV Satyanarayna, David Dhawan in different languages are used by Anil Ravipudi too.
Venkatesh seems to be in form and as the person suffering with night blindness and it is a complete new character for him. Even for Varun Tej as a stammer, it is a new character. Both seem to have nailed it. Even the glamour quotient with Tamannah Bhatia, Mehreen Prizada from original got an addition with Sonal Chauhan’s addition.
Movie plot seems to follow families with greed for money and riches. Devi Sri Prasad is back to compose music after F2 for F3 and even some of the characters, running jokes have been retained. Family audiences might lap it up like the original, F2 movie.
