The young actor Tharun Bhascker, who enjoys a strong following, has recently produced the crime comedy Keedaa Cola. The film stars some well-known actors. With high hopes, the movie debuted in cinemas today. Let’s see how it does.

Story:

Vaasthu, played by Chaitanya Rao, suffers from Tourette syndrome. He makes his money through the sale of patient simulators and resides with his grandfather Varadharaju (Brahmanandam). Vaasthu’s employer filed a lawsuit against him in court after he damaged a patient simulator. One day Vaasthu finds a cockroach in the soft drink he bought for his grandfather. Vaasthu’s legal buddy Lancham (Rag Mayur) suggests that Vaasthu file a claim for damages at the consumer forum. Vaasthu and Lancham come across Jeevan (Jeevan Kumar), a potential corporator. What happened next is the story’s primary plot point.

Extra Credits:

Like all of Tharun Bhascker’s previous movies, Keedaa Cola offers unconventional situational humor. The second half is vital, with its riveting scenes and an exciting and surreal conclusion. Tharun Bhascker’s trademark comedy appears in a few scenes. As he said in the commercials, a few photographs were used to create humor.

You’ll laugh at situations like Raghu Ram’s brush with professional killers, Vishnu Oi’s amusing antics, Tharun Bhascker’s request that Jeevan Kumar speak in English, and an old tune playing in the background while Tharun Bhascker mouths swear words. Tharun Bhascker makes a powerful acting impact in Keedaa Cola. He performed as Naidu quite convincingly.

Jeevan Kumar, Rag Mayur, Chaitanya Rao, and Vishnu Oi stand out among the rest. Keedaa Cola boasts strong visuals and hearty music, making it an excellent technical film. This crime comedy fits well with its two-hour timeframe.

Negative Points:

The backstory of Keedaa Cola is quite thin, which is its primary flaw. Even if the second half’s narration is well-written and has a high entertainment value, the plot lacks the substance to elevate the movie to a higher plane. One could be a little let down if they were hoping for strong material from the director.

There aren’t many thrilling situations in the first half, which is subpar. Very few of the scenes in the first hour are interesting; the majority of the time is spent establishing the characters. Several jokes fell flat. Sometimes the pacing is slow. Though he doesn’t get much screen time, Brahmanandam does a good job on his part. Some people who would have loved to see more of the renowned comic will be saddened by this.

Technical Aspects:

Keedaa Cola is primarily supported by the bright background score by Vivek Sagar and the superb cinematography by AJ Aaron. The two technicians greatly improved the watching experience by contributing their respective areas of expertise. There are good production values. It’s a decent edit.

The film’s director, Tharun Bhascker, performed a respectable job. The humor in Keedaa Cola keeps things interesting despite having a straightforward plot. In Keedaa Cola, Tharun Bhascker excels as an actor. He got excellent performances out of his performers.

Verdict:

The distinctive style of filmmaker Tharun Bhascker is evident in a few sequences, and the humor in the second hour works well overall. While every performer gives a strong performance, the primary issue with Keedaa Cola is the weak plot. There’s a lot of space for development in the first half as well. This weekend, though, it’s watchable because of a few strange moments, situational humor in the second half, and superb technical work.
