Nagarjuna, who is determined to give a blockbuster to his sons, had started a roadmap to establish his sons in film industry and make them fill his place. As a part of his masterplan, he asked director Kalyan Krishna to come up with custom made commercial entertainer for his first son, Naga Chaitanya. Did the director create his "Soggade Chinni Nayana" magic with Naga Chaitanya this time? Let’s find out
Shiva, the only son of a millionaire businessman Krishna (Jagapathi Babu), comes across a village belle Bramarambha (Rakul) at a marriage function and falls in love with her. To pursue her MBA, Bramaramba comes to Vizag and asks Shiva to help her, as this is her first time away from home. Shiva utilizes this opportunity to impress her but she just treats him as friend and shiva get vexed with her silly fights and breaksup with her.
After the gap, Brahamarambha realizes Shiva’s true love and decides to reciprocate. However, the rivalry between their fathers (Sampath Raj and Jagapathi Babu) come in to picture and spoils their fun. How they solve their problems and reunite again forms the rest of story.
In 1996, there came a film called "Ninne Pelladata" in which Mahalakshmi (Tabu) comes to Hyderabad to Seenu’s (Nagarjuna) place and they both fall in love with each other but later their father’s old rivalry comes between them and finally hero opens up the eyes of their parents with some heart touching dialogues and unite two families.
Circa 2017, there comes another film called "Rarandoi Veduka Chuddam", where Mahalakshimi became Brahmarambha and Seenu became Shiva. Mahalakshimi’s flight training reason to go to hyderabad is replaced by Brahmarambha’s MBA in Vizag. The rest of the story remains the same but just the rehashed version of Ninne Pelladata. Naga Chaitanya who had earlier remaked other actor films such as Thadaka and Premam, now remade his father's film and tried to make it look like an original story.
Movie starts with Nagarjuna voice-over explaining the dreams of teenage girls about their would- be. Then it moves to a small village where there are three close friends Prabhakar, Krishna and Aadi who fight for each other but Aadi's (Sampath Raj) sister runs away with Krishna (Jagapathi Babu) which leads to rivalry between the two friends. As time passes Aadi is blessed by Brahmarambha, who is the only daughter in his entire family of 10 kids and hence is liked by everyone in family. And the story moves forward with she growing up as beautiful village belle meeting hero at Vennela Kishore's marraige, which leads to love later and eventually bringing two estranged families together in the end.
In summary, "Rarandoi Veduka Chuddam" is a Nagarjuna’s "Ninne Pelladata" remade by Naga Chaitanya. Kalyan Krishna tried to prove that he is not a one-film wonder by using the well proven age-old story of Nagarjuna and customized it for Naga Chaitanaya. This film will definitely do wonders for people who had not watched or forgotten Ninne Pelladata. But for others, why would anyone pay money to see 20 year old story now? No idea.
Result: Ninne Pelladutha Rehash
