Jio Rockers SMS – Tale of a love hate relationship
Sudheer Babu, Brother-in-Law of Prince Mahesh Babu, is making his debut as a hero with the movie SMS. The movie has released across Andhra Pradesh today and Regina is the heroine in this movie. Tatineni Satya is the director. Let us see how the movie is
The story of this movie is wafer thin. Shiva (Sudheer Babu) is a carefree and brash young fellow who works in a courier company as a delivery boy. During a train journey, he comes across Shruti ( Regina ), who works as a radio jockey. Shiva instantly falls for Shruti and he starts trying to impress her. Shruti reluctantly starts reciprocating his love over time. But just as Shruti is about to express her love, Shiva breaks her heart with his careless nature and uncultured ways.
A love hate relationship begins as the story moves back and forth between love failure and success. Jealousy, possessiveness and anger rear their ugly heads.Towards the end, the movie takes an unexpected twist.Shiva and Shruti are forced to take a stand over their future. What will they do? That forms the story
Plus Points :
Sudheer Babu impresses with his superb dances. He is also very good in fight sequences. For a debut movie, his performance is pretty solid. He has shown good energy and with a little more grooming, he can do very well in future.
Regina is simply superb in the role of Shruti. She looks gorgeous and her performance is impressive. She looks especially good in sarees. Her expressions in emotional scenes have come out well. She has a bright future in the industry and will surely be an actress to watch out for in future.
Chanti evokes some laughs as the hero’s sidekick. Thagubothu Ramesh makes a brilliant cameo appearance towards the end. The romantic track between Sudheer and Regina has been shot well in parts and there are some very good scenes that strike an immediate chord with the audience.
The hero’s character has been etched out well and it is entertaining. The first half moves along at a pretty rapid pace .
Sudheer needs to work on his diction and voice modulation, especially in emotional sequences. The film loses tempo in the second half as the director tries to create conflict points. Rohini goes overboard a few times in the role of the Hero’s mother.
The placement of the songs could have been better. Some of the songs come in at the wrong time to disrupt the flow in the momentum. Vennela Kishore has been wasted in a poorly etched character.
While decent overall, some of the ‘comedy’ scenes between the hero and his sidekick fail to bring about the desired laughs.
Production values are rich. Cinematography is pretty good and the visuals are bright. Choreography of dance and fight sequences deserves special mention. Dialogues are ok. Editing could have been better. Selva Ganesh’s music is good in parts. Background score is decent.
Tatineni Satya’s direction is largely good. Screenplay should have been tighter in the second half.
Sudheer Babu makes a good debut with SMS. His superb dances and fights will make a good impression. Regina is a major asset for the movie and she will be an instant hit with young people. SMS is a tale built around the conflicting emotions experienced by the hero and the heroine as they try to decide whether they love each other or not. Go without too many expectations and SMS will be a decent flick to catch.
