Shailaja Reddy Alludu Review

Cast: Naga Chaitanya, Anu Emmanuel, Ramyakrishna, Naresh, Vennela Kishore, Prudhvi, and others
Director: Maruthi
Release date: 13th September 2018
 
After failed to prove himself as an action hero, Naga Chaitanya tried his luck in a family drama ‘Shailaja Reddy’ Alludu which revolves around a guy and egoistic Shailaja Reddy (Ramyakrishna) and her daughter (Anu Emmanuel) who is equally egoistic. A lot being said about the move before the release says it would be on the lines of Nagarjuna’s ‘Allari Alludu’. Let’s see if the movie really stands up.
 

 
Final Verdict:
Amid huge expectations, Naga Chaitanya’s ‘Shailaja Reddy Alludu’ has hit the screens finally. Director Maruthi who has a good knack of extracting the comedy sadly couldn’t repeat his magic. ‘Shailaja Reddy Alludu’ falls flat in all departments leaving it just an average flick. Though there’s a lot in the movie to develop it into a hit movie, the lack of proper characterization of each character, and stale comedy makes the movie a tedious film to watch.
 

 
On the whole, with an average first half, and a below second half, ‘Shailaja Reddy Alludu’ is surely not a fun-filled ride as promoted earlier.
