Review of reviews –Yevade Subramanyam – a clean break from routine masala Telugu films

yevade-subramanyamBefore venturing out for a 3 hour sojourn, we all read film reviews to understand what the movie might be all about and how well it might have been made . But unfortunately the feeling one gets is that most Telugu websites just do not know how to review a movie. I have read some very good reviews about some films and was utterly disappointed when I watched them myself. One latest example is Attarintiki daaredi ?. Telugu film reviewers gave a uniform thumbs up for the movie, it even shattered all records but for me personally, its first half was just OK and its second half was absolutely unwatchable. So over a period, I understood how to understand which review, and the method in the madness of believing some and not believing some.

I have not seen yesterday’s release Yevade Subramanyam so far, but from different reviews, I somehow feel it is worth watching. Here is the review of reviews and like me, you can also slowly understand which review to believe and which one to trash.

  1. Greatandhra.com — 3  stars — Yes he is worth the find. http://www.greatandhra.com/movies/reviews/yevade-subramanyam-review-yes-he-is-worth-the-find-64844.html
  2. Idlebrain.com — 3.25 stars — On the whole, Yevade Subramanyam is a nice movie and you may watch it! http://www.idlebrain.com/movie/archive/yevadesubramanyam.html (Jeevi of Idlebrain rarely gives 4 stars and one film for which he gave 4 stars which I thought did not deserve was, Ye maya chesaave..)
  3. Times of India —3.5 stars — For once, put aside everything you expect from a Telugu film, and go on a ride which traverses the Himalayas and the deepest realms of your sub-consciousness. Yevade Subramanyam isn’t a film where you’ll laugh out loud, despite its subtle humour. It’s a memory that you must savour until the very end. Like life itself. http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/entertainment/telugu/movie-reviews/Yevade-Subramanyam/movie-review/46646813.cms
  4. Tolivelugu.com –2.5 stars — The reviewer feels that though it is a good attempt, there are no commercial elements. So only 2.5 stars http://tolivelugu.com/yevade-subramanyam-movie-review/viewnews/1/17448.html

Many other Telugu websites which routinely write reviews, have given a thumbs down for the movie. Reasons include –too slow..multiplex variety.. no brahmanandam .. no commercial elements.. photography is good but looks like a travel documentary etc. 

You can make your own judgement.
