Review:Nara Rohit’s Solo entertaining

Rohit banking on the film

Nara Rohit’s Solo which released today has kept its promise of an entertaining movie. A romance with liberal doses of emotion and drama, Solo delivers more than it promises.

The story is simple and can be described as a reversal of Bommarillu theme. Hero is an orphan, who yearns to be part of a big family. Prakash Raj’s is one such family and his daughter Nisha Aggwaral (Kajal’s sister) falls in love with our hero.

But the problem is that Prakash Raj doesn’t want to marry his daughter to an orphan. He would like his daughter to be part of a large family. He can allow his daughter to wed Rohit, but then they would not be allowed to be part of his family anymore.

This inevitably results in a problem for the couple. Finally, our hero relents and says it makes no sense for both of them to live like orphans and hence he was withdrawing from the scene.

But when the match is settled for Nisha with a new guy, the hero had to be there to ensure he would not create any problem in future for the girl. The climax as can be expected has its twists, leading our hero and heroine to tie the knot.

Director Parusuram, who made Yuvatha and Anjaneyulu earlier, handled the execution well. The dialogues penned by him also contributed to the pace of the film. Rohit, for whom this film is a make-or-break for his career, is not great but adequate. Nisha is a surprise and gives a good performance.

Cinematography by Dasaradhi Shivendra is quite good, though music by veteran Mani Sharma is average.

On the whole, the film lives up to its expectations of being a simple romance with no pretensions. As it is a solo release this week, Solo might bring in audiences in some numbers. The film can be expected to pick up at the box office by word of mouth.
