Story

An unusual love story with an unusual twist in its plot. A love story that has the same class divide, but has an altogether different ending. Here comes a story to defy the adulation of masculinity and talks about the right prespective. 

Review

Buchi Babu Sana’s directorial debut film Uppena shows the often-told tale of class divide and how it endangers tearing apart two youths in love. But Buchi Babu heads to amaze the audience with how this tale ends.  

Aasi (Panja Vaisshnav Tej) as a fisherman, father, and the son relationship has been exceptional. Both debutants Vaisshnav and Krithi manage to pull off the complexities of their roles well for the most utmost part. Vijay Sethupathi is perfect as a man set in his opinions and someone who’s used to making his way. And despite Uppena being as expected as they happen, with the rhythms appearing natural, Buchi Babu managed to administer it well, keeping the audience engaged. Devi Sri Prasad’s music and cinematography by Shamdat append to the film’s overall feeling. Navin Nooli did a good job with the editing. 

Verdict

Watch Uppena this weekend if you are fond of love stories but avoid high expectations.
