If there’s one thing that Tharun Bhascker detests, it’s clichés. If you’ve seen his first film Pelli Choopulu or heard him speak in interviews, you must come prepared to expect the unexpected from a Tharun Bhascker film. For a plot which has so much potential for clichés, the director masterfully manages to bring a refreshing and hilarious film that will stay with you long after you leave the theatre.

The film charts the lives of four aimless friends who come together to make a short film. However, not everything goes according to plan and they find themselves in Goa without a place to stay. Karthik (Sai Sushanth Reddy) manages a high-end cocktail club in Jubilee Hills, Kaushik (Abhinav Gomatam), who dubs for animated films but secretly wants to be an actor, Upendra aka Uppi (Venkatesh Kakumanu), a wedding photographer, every gang needs a rowdy, and these boys find one in Vivek (Vishwak Sen). The four friends have traumatic past experiences, there are heartbreaks, drinking sessions and of course, a Goa trip.

The beauty of Ee Nagaraaniki Emaindi lies in its spontaneity. The dialogues are terrific. There’s no over-the-top confession of love, heartbreak or humour. Tharun’s disdain for clichés clearly shows. There are subtle messages sent through the film too. The movie may not have the happy ending that you would expect, but coming from a man who hates clichés, you wouldn’t want it any other way. Do yourself a favour and watch this film this weekend and laugh your heart out.
