Needi Naadi Oke Katha - Ayn Rand so far away


Needi Naadi Oke Katha
(You and I have the same story)

Telugu, 2018

Directed by Venu Udugulu

Stars
Sree Vishnu as Sagar
Satna Titus as Dhaarmika
Posani Murali Sekhar as Ram V Sekhar
Devi Prasad as Sagar's father
Roopini Lakshmi as Sagar's mother
Nara Rohith as "who cares?!"

Mohan's Measure "you've got to be kidding!"

I should be ashamed for his having my father's name. But, Sagar has enough of being shamed by his own dad. It is blamed on lack of understanding on daddy's part, caused by too much id. It is expressed in the face of every member of the audience who walked out scratching their head.

NNOK is probably the worst example of existential crisis ever displayed on the silver screen. We are supposed to find it in our hearts to support a guy who doesn't have a clue, what to speak of a life, just as much as his MRS- degree girlfriend who drops out of college so that she can stand by her man. They both need serious help.

It is offered by Posani in a way that has become trite, Raja. So trite, it isn't funny anymore.

Trust me, Raja; do not see this movie if you know what's good for you.
