They try to make a short film and while Vivek pens a love story, Karthik shoots it, Upendra edits,while Kaushik dreams of turning a hero.

But their dreams get dashed due to unforeseen developments, and after four years, Karthik becomes a manager at an elite club, Vivek who gets addicted to alcohol works in a software company, while Upendra works as a editor and Kaushik works as a dubbing artist in a dubbing studio.

To find out whether they realized their dreams and what connection Sherlyn (Anisha Ambrose) and Shilpa (Simran Chowdhary) got, enjoy Ee Nagaraniki Emaindi on screen.


Sushanth Reddy and Vishwaksen Naidu tried their best to attract with their performances. Sushanth attracted with his looks for sometime but later sported black glasses most of the time. So one couldn't get to see his expressions most of the time. Vishwaksen Naidu is OK with his performance. . Abhinav Gautam managed to create few laughs with his antics. Venkatesh Kakumanu played the support role. Evoked few laughs with their mannerisms.

Simran Chowdhary and Anisha Ambrose got limited roles. Both just passed through the motions in the film. Anisha to some extent attracted with her glamour. Though everyone tried their best to attract movie lovers, they still have a long way to go and for that they should improve upon their expressions.


Vivek Sagar's music is average. None get registered as few are melancholic. Background score is OK.  Cinematography of Niketh Bommireddy captured the scenic and natural beauty and elevated the scenes.

Editing of Raviteja Girijala could have even more crispy as there are many drags in the film. Tharun Bhaskar could have added few more twists and turns and could have tried to attract other sections too, in order to create even bigger impact. Production values are good.

Plus Points

Few comedy scenes


Couple of witty Dialogues

Minus Points

Routine and cliched story, narration

Lack of real twists and turns

Numerous drinking scenes

Missing romantic and youthful feel



Tharun Bhaskar who made a powerful impact with the romantic entertainer Pelli Choopulu, attracted the attention of all with his second, coming with a crazy title, Ee Nagaraniki Emaindi. He tried to surprise all with his story, screenplay and direction. Though Tharun Bhaskar proceeded ahead with the project, with clarity of thought and conviction, he with his narration and execution, ended up testing the patience of the movie lovers.

Tharun Bhaskar's story is wafer thin and is totally cliched. His screenplay and direction is uni dimensional. He generated interest with different taking and narration but with the story with little twists and turns, he ended up dragging the film completely.  He tried to make up for it by including hilarious scenes but the witty dialogues shown with friends boozing most of the time, decreased the intensity.

After a point, the plot turned monotonous and the drags in the film started affecting the narration in the end. Tharun Bhaskar alienated many sections, as he targeted only one section of movie lovers, unlike in Pelli Choopulu where he made powerful impact to all sections of movie lovers.

Final Talk

Ee Nagaraniki Emaindi tests the patience and endurance.
