Behind the Screens:
After the super success of ‘Pelli Choopulu’, the entire industry and the audience are looking favorably at small movies made by fresh talent. As the case of ‘Pelli Choopulu’, ‘Pittagoda’ releasing today is also being backed by Senior Producer, Suresh Babu. Let’s see how ‘Pittagoda’ fared with the audience.
‘Pittagoda’ is a story of four youngsters who have no aims and aspirations in life living in the small town of Godavari Khani, Karimnagar Dist, Telangana. Tippu (Vishwa) who leads the gang becomes a friend to Divya (Punarnavi) and their relationship leads to some unexpected situations which later prompt a split among friends. Rest of the Story is all about how Tippu fall in love and how all friends resolve the differences between them.
Vishwa, Punarnavi, and other three friends are apt fit for those roles and performed well. Viswa played main lead hero character in settled manner. Punarnavi looks pretty and definitely, is a heroine material. Others supported main lead characters well.
Director Anudeep who makes directional debut with this film. It’s important to get the casting right for small films like these and the director executed it perfectly. He got the right people and is also able to draw good performances from those. If he handled the climax better, things would have been much helpful.
Kamalakar’s music is good and the background score is appealing. The camera work is colorful. Editing is crispy and the run time will help the film. Production Values are just excellent.
– First half
– Few scenes
– Towards climax
Pittagoda is light weighted youthful family movie.
The first half of the film is entertaining and the interval bang is good. The second half of the film also started well but fell flat towards the end of the film.
