After delivering hattrick hits with ‘Pataas’, ‘Supreme’ and ‘Raja The Great’, director Anil Ravipudi is back to entertain with the laugh-riot ‘F2’ (Fun and Frustration) with Venkatesh and Varun Tej in the lead roles. The movie has created a decent buzz with the teasers, and trailers. Let’s see whether the movie can live up to all the hype it created or not.
Venky (Venkatesh), who works as a PA to a local MA gets married to a snooty and arrogant, Harika (Tamannah), who has a high attitude and dominating character.
Post marriage, Venky’s life turns miserable and he often gets frustrated as Harika and her mother take over the proceedings at home and try to make their husbands as puppets.
As soon as Venky comes to know that a local boy Varun Yadav (Varun Tej) will be soon getting married to his sister-in-law Honey (Mehreen), warns him not to join the family as his life would be in deep trouble later. But, Varun doesn’t bother to care him.
After realizing that their lives are in a mess, both Venky and Varun go on a Europe trip on the advice of neighbor (Rajendra Prasad). Knowing this, both Harika and Honey too go to Europe and all of them reach Prakash Raj’s home in Europe.
Rest of the story is whether the frustrated husbands succeed in teaching their wives a lesson and how is Prakash Raj related to the story.
Undoubtedly, it’s Venkatesh’s shows all the way. His impeccable coming timing takes back to the days of ‘Nuvvu Naku Nachav’ and ‘Malliswari’.
Varun Tej as his co-brother is just okay. The Telangana slang used by Varun Tej looks artificial.
Tamannah is good as Harika and Mehreen’s mannerisms are quite irritating at times.
Rajendra Prasad, Raghu Babu, Priyadarshi are good in their respective roles and Prakash Raj is wasted in the role of an affluent NRI.
Good comedy in the first half
Vintage Venky is back and will find an audience with his lady fans
The climax and most of the second half
On the whole, ‘F2’ offers nice fun throughout the movie and you can give it a try for the decent first half and some slapstick comedy.
