Initially, Keerthy doesn’t like Babu but gradually falls for his antics.Here comes the twist, SI Siddharth (Naveen) enters the scene. Keerthy’s dad wants her to marry Siddharth, but since she likes Babu, he gives couple of weeks time for Babu to impress him and win her hand. Will Babu be able to impress Keerthy’s father and win his love?   Curious to know, watch Nenu Local at your nearest theater.


Nenu Local is just another youthful love story. Stalk a girl till she agrees and then fight her dad to win her hand ultimately. This storyline has been fed to audience for decades by Telugu filmmakers. However routine the story is, when told in entertaining way will work out.

The film not only derives the title ‘Nenu Local’ from Ravi Teja’s Idiot, but also the story is some what close. In the first half, Nani stalking Keerthy to the core but fights goons who eve-tease her, but naturally she falls for her. Second half enters her villainy fiancee.

Nani’s cool parents who encourage their son to bring their daughter-in-law is also not new to Telugu screen. Posani and Vyjayanthi play their part well in those roles.

Subtle comedy and funny dialogues are content of Nenu Local. Interesting scenes with adequate performances make it pleasant watch. Forgetting logics, the film has got good entertainment value.

Nani’s signature mannerisms and dialogue delivery are such that they even lift a normal scene to high. Keerthy is cute in girl-next-door look and her expressions leave an impact. Sachin Khedker and Tulasi are apt as Keerthy’s parents. Other support cast did decent jobs

Devi Sri Prasad gives peppy music and cinematography is okay. Some scenes are left without DI.
