Nenu Local First day Collection
Director Trinadha Rao Nakkina’s Telugu movie Nenu Local featuring actor Nani and actress Keerthy Suresh in the lead roles, has received mixed reviews from the audience. Nenu Local is an action-romantic film, which has been produced by Dil Raju under his banner Sri Venkateswara Creations. Prasanna Kumar Bejawada has written the story, screenplay and dialogues for the movie, which narrates a cute Telugu love story. Babu (Nani) is a guy with an attitude. He falls for a girl named Keerthi (Keerthy Suresh). What happens next forms the crux of the film. Nani has delivered a good performance in Nenu Local and he impresses viewers with his comic timing and dialogue delivery.
Keerthy Suresh has got a good scope to show her acting prowess, and she has done a good job. Her glamorous looks and chemistry with Nani are the highlights of the movie. Naveen Chandra, Sachin Khedekar, Posani Krishna Murali and Easwari Rao have also done justice to their roles. Producer Dil Raju has ensured that Nenu Local has good production values. Nizar Shafi’s cinematography and Devi Sri Prasad’s background score and songs, the choreography of dance and action sequences, and Prasanna Kumar’s dialogues are the other attractions, viewers say.
The background music adds to the already overly built up scenes in the film. By the end of the film you won’t be able to recall if there was any scene where Nani didn’t make an entry in slow motion and thumping BGM. All for a light-hearted love story seems a little much, but it blends into the entire OTT theme of the movie. Nenu Local is incredibly predictable. If not for Nani’s comedy timing and skill to keep audiences glued to the seats, the movie would have had nothing much to offer. Set that aside, and it would border on boring.
The trade reports indicate that Nenu Local is the biggest opener of Nani (excluding SS Rajamouli’s Eega) at the worldwide box office. It is estimated that the movie has earned around Rs 6 crore at the Andhra Pradesh and Telangana box office. The film has minted over Rs 2.5 crore from the overseas box office and other domestic centres to take its opening day collection to about Rs 8.5 crore.
