Today’s release, Silly Fellows is very crucial for Allari Naresh and Sunil as they are going through a series of failures. Read on to see if the movie brings them back to the game or not.


Veerababu (Allari Naresh) is a small-time tailor who gets his best friend Suri Babu (Sunil) to marry a local dancer (Nandini) only to impress his MLA (Jayaprakash Reddy). This is also the time when Posani and his gang discover that the MLA has all the details on a sum of 500 crores. The rest of the story is about how Suri Babu, Veerababu and the whole gang get tangled in this septup and grab the money at last.

Positive points:

The first half of the movie is good since it has a decent comedy. It’s been a long time since we’ve seen Sunil in such a good role that he evokes an excellent comedy. His trace of marrying Pushpa generates decent laughs. Sunil recovers his comedy time and does what people expect from him.

Allari Naresh never stops entertaining in all his films and does the same in Silly Fellows as well. His performance is orderly and he shares good chemistry with Sunil. For a change, the Brahmanandam comedy works in the film while the senior comedian makes his presence felt in some scenes in which he is present.

Posani, Raghu and Jayaprakash Reddy do their job well and follow the rhythm of the movie. The heroine Chitra Shukla was almost fine and also the fame of Bigg Boss, Nandini Rai. The climax has some comedy scenes that end the movie well.

Negative points:

Although manufacturers clearly mentioned during promotions that one should not look for logic, things are a bit disappointing in this regard. The role of Jaya Prakash Reddy lacks basic logic and the fun generated by him during the first twenty minutes in the second half is quite irritating and does not make any sense.

The second half does not have the comedy quotient that the first half provides. The free flow of comedy and history is set aside by some silly narrative and above comedy that does not work. There’s nothing new you’ll see in the story since the same point has been covered in many movies previously
