After noticing the director’s name T.N.Krishna, who directed Sillunu Oru Kaadhal (2006), I sat down to watch the Telugu film Hippi (2019).
It is a difficult movie to describe, certainly not in a positive sense. The film starts off as a typical rom-com, with some enjoyable humour in the office scenes. Quickly it turns to be a triangular love story, only to turn again to go on a boyfriend-girlfriend ego trip. Because of this identity confusion, what could’ve been planned as a Telugu version of the super-hit Manmarziyaan (2018), comes out kaput.
What differs from the other Indian films, was the equal exposure of skin by the hero Kartikeya Reddy Gummakonda, along with the two heroines – Digangana Suryavanshi and Jazba Singh.
