To find out the twists and turns and why Arjun left Sweety in a lurch and what is Shruti (Manali Rathod) relation with Arjun, enjoy Howrah Bridge on silver screen.
Rahul Ravindran performed in the role in an effortless manner. He impressed with his young looks and also with his expressions in sentiment and emotional scenes. He delivered dialogues smoothly but for all the positives he needs to improve upon his overall acting to reach the next level.
Chandini Chowdhary attracted with her glamour and looks. She is OK with her expressions and performance. Ajay did well in a completely different and normal role. Manali Rathod failed to impress with her looks. Rao Ramesh attracted with his slang and mannerisms but for most part of the story, his role looks a complete deviation.
Ali,Vidyullekha Raman and Posani Krishna Murali 's comedy did not attract much laughter. Others performed according to their roles.
Sekhar Chandra's music is just average. None of the songs are attractive. He tried to attract viewers with melodious tunes but none are novel and are often heard in earlier films. His background score too is just OK. It is however in sync with the scenes. Editing of Kotagiri Venkateshwara Rao left many drags in the film. He should have done away with them and fastened the pace of the film.
Cinematography of Vijay Mishra is good and gave the film a natural and realistic feel. Director Revan should have come with interesting twists and turns to make the film even better. Production values are OK.
Rahul Ravindran's performance
Chandini Chowdhary's glamor
Lack of twists and turns
Lack of commercial elements
Story,screenplay and direction
Director Revan Yadu tried to impress youngsters and genex movie lovers with a triangular love story in the backdrop of a bridge. He starts the narration on a interesting note but from then on drags the film with unnecessary scenes in the name of comedy and villainism and deviates from the topic.
The slow pace and drags in the film tested the patience of the movie lovers. Revan Yadu failed with his story ,screenplay and direction. Story looked routine with no real twists and turns and screenplay did not look interesting. First half drags and ends with a predictable interval bang.
Second half is loaded with sentiment but in-between dragged with the second heroine episode. Pre climax and climax generated little interest and then the film ends on a predictable note. The film with lack of interesting plot tests the patience of the movie lovers right from the start to finish making them run towards the exit doors.
Howrah Bridge is no Success Bridge.
