Krishnarjuna Yuddham Story:
Krishna (Nani) is a happy-go-lucky painter in a small village in Chittoor district. He is hated by villagers for his mischievous deeds. After trying for many girls, Krishna finally manages to woo Riya (Ruksar), granddaughter of Village headman.
On the other side of the globe, somewhere in Europe, his doppelganger Arjun, a rockstar and a playboy for whom flirting with girls is just like making noodles finds a tough girl who isn’t easy for him and falls head over heels for real.
One fine day, the two girls go missing all of a sudden. Arjun lands in India in search of her and meets Krishna. Both learn that the girls are kidnapped by a dreadful human trafficking gang. Their mission is to rescue their sweethearts.
Krishnarjuna Yuddham Review:
Krishnarajuna Yuddham is a old wine in new bottle kind of story. Its a commercial potboiler of 90s style with dual roles. Nani carries the film on his shoulders routine story with lackluster screenplay.
Natural star attempts full length mass role as Krishna. He tickles with his Chittoor slang and funny antics. On the flipside, his debonaire act as Arjun also is impressive. But there is no proper justification for the double action.
First half has some comical moments with heroes falling back of girls. Funny scenes with Chittoor slang bring in some laughs. Romantic scenes in exotic locations of Europe are eye candy. foot-tapping songs are also a plus.
The film turns serious from interval. Second half focus shifts on searching for the lost heroines. Predictable and not so convincing twists doesn’t build any excitement.
Some mass moments with power-packed action episodes and Nani’s swag as Lungi clad ruffian will evoke whistles. However, entertainment quotient drops in latter half.
Nani steals the show with ease. Effortlessly he slips into country guy with Chittoor slang. Surprisingly, he also excels as slick playboy. His histrionics alone makes the film watchable. Anupama Parameswaran is a cynosure and has decent role with some scope for performance while Ruksar remains a glam-doll.
Background music and songs by Hip Hop Tamizha is a big asset of the Krishnarjuna Yuddham. Daari Choodu song and its theme track playing behind at places in the film lifts otherwise dull mood.
The film appears lengthy and tests patience with unnecessary lags in several scenes. Cinematography by Karthik Ghattamaneni needs special mention, especially for those dry rustic village shots and racing scenes in Europe.
Bottom-line: Krishnarjuna Yuddham – Krishna wins, Arjuna loses
