PRINCE is a romantic comedy film written and directed by Anudeep KV which is produced by Suniel Narang, D. Suresh Babu, Pushkar Ram Mohan Rao under the banners of Sree Venkateswara Cinemas and Suresh Productions. The film was simultaneously shot in Tamil and Telugu. Siva Karthikeyan is on a roll after two consecutive super hits and this supposedly laugh riot is expected to deliver him a hattrick of hits.
There is not a lot you expect when it comes to SK’s brand of films. The only purpose of his films is to entertain with a generous dose of comedy, super hit songs that are carefully crafted to suit him and his recent rendezvous with dance. PRINCE was anticipated to have all of the above in large doses. Forget the wafer thin story line, the comedy that was supposed to mask all the misgivings falls flat and there are hardly 3 encounters that might find some mention. The idea of the film was to weave mindless comedy around a decent idea and let the characters on screen manage the rest. So what you end up having is short episodes of silly comedy interjected with a reminder of the actual story now and then.
Siva Karthikeyan is the one who saves the viewers from being annoyed. He is effortless and keeps progressing. He is enjoying his dance moves, but could not help noticing the slight lag before his steps. Maria tries hard. Satyaraj is okayish. Premji doesn’t impress.
Manoj Paramahamsa’s cinematography is colourful. Thaman’s tries to do an Anirudh and comes second best. Dialogues are below average. Thankfully the makers decided to snip “15” minutes before the release and hence the editing is sufficient. Direction is middling.
PRINCE’s collective commonsense of everyone associated with the film would still be less than that of an 8 year old, and yet some might enjoy.
PRINCE – PILAPI !!
