Sai Dharam Tej, in his new film, says he doesn’t want young people to get married. Virat (Tej) idolises people like Atal Bihari Vajpayee and Mother Teresa. While his leaders had other — rather bigger — reasons to stay away from getting into a relationship, it’s unclear whether Virat has such noble ideas.
But things don’t remain this way, as he befriends Amrutha (Nabha Natesh). Why would a typical Telugu film let go of the opportunity to make the hero who hates falling in love swallow his words?
A lot of well-known faces including Rao Ramesh, Rajendra Prasad, Naresh, Vennela Kishore and Sathya star in this anti-rom-com, which hits theatres next Friday. Theatres… yes, you read that right. You will have to mask up, sanitise, and catch a seat at a theatre near you, and, of course, maintain social distancing.
Although many of Tej’s films are forgettable, he shows some amount of promise. If Solo Brathuke So Better becomes a blockbuster, he might be able to pull crowds into theatres on his own, and not just because of the family he comes from. Nabha is still new in Telugu cinema, though she has proven her worth in a few box office hits.
The film, which has been written and directed by Subbu, has music by Thaman S, the composer of 2020’s ear-worm Samajavaragamana. Isn’t that another exciting reason to watch this film on the big screen?
