There is a general belief that our film-makers, though successful, have lost the art of telling a good story.Instead, they tend to cater to the assiduously-cultivated image of a star. It is a charge made not without reason. Nenunnanu is a typical case in point.
With Nagarjuna recently having acquired the lover-boy image, V N Aditya, the director, goes out of the way to re-inforce that even while infusing the storyline with some scope for robust action. In the end, what you have is a sylized mishmash.
But this does not mean Nenunnanu does not have its moments. It has its share of glory. The film is all about the orphan Venu (Nagarjuna) and his efforts to help Anu (Shreya), whose life intertwines with his, to patch up with her lover Arun (Subbaraju). Arun, son of a rich businessman, mistakes the relationship between Venu and Anu. Then there is Sruthi too (Aarti Agarwal) who pines for Venu.
It is a simple story that is complicated by some clumsy and confused screenplay. But what lifts
Nenunnanu is the first rate performance of the lead artistes especially Nagarjuna who is as usual polished and poised. In an almost custom-made role, he romps through be it in acting or in fights.
Shreya as Anu is refreshing and pleasing. Aarti Agarwal's role, in comparison, is skimpy like some of the clothes she wears. Villain Mukesh Rishi (as the scheming rich father of Arun) is loud and coarse.
The film's appeal is lifted through the excellent musical score of Keeravani. He has combined light and heavy songs beautifully.The direction of Aditya is good in patches. The film banks on the winning streak of Nagarjuna to a large extent.
