Prince is a movie that should be watched with zero logics and with zero expectations. This movie neither has a strong story nor a conflict point that could connect with the audience in any way. Most of the scenes are filled with humor, but that alone won’t work in theatres, as audiences get exhausted with similar one liners from the start of the movie. Few love scenes in the first half were well written and executed with some fun added to it, but the conflict created regarding the love story and the scenes that follow later look very silly that makes you scratch your heads. With few comedy scenes that make us laugh, this movie ends without leaving any impact.
While it comes to acting, Sivakarthikeyan is very entertaining as usual and tried his best to pull off the movie on his shoulders with his comedy timing. Many scenes in the movie look silly, but Sivakarthikeya managed to cover those scenes with his acting skills. Maria Riaboshapka looks very beautiful on screen and gave a decent performance. It is fun to watch her dance for Indian mass numbers in the songs. Satyaraj was good to some extent, but looks over the top in few scenes. Premgi Amaren is okay and all other actors did their part as required for the story.
Technically Prince movie looks average. Songs composed by Thaman are not up to the mark, except ‘Jessica’ song. Even the background music is very loud in many scenes. Manoj Paramahamsa is one of the finest cinematographers in India, but the visually Prince is not that good and most of the frames are filled with overly bright colors. Editing of the movie could have been taken care of. Production values are good.
Director Anudeep KV was successful with his movie ‘Jathiratnalu’ as the comedy worked out in theatres, but it failed terribly when premiered on TV and many people bashed the movie for it’s brainless comedy scenes. He once again tried to entertain the audience with same type of comedy and we have to see how will audience react to the movie in theatres this time.
Overall, Prince is only watchable for few comedy scenes & lacks in story and other departments.
- Few Comedy Scenes
- Unnecessary comedy
