F3: Enjoyable and Frustration is extra of a franchise than a sequel to F2: Enjoyable and Frustration. Anil Ravipudi, who has written and directed the movie, embarks on one other enjoyable journey with the characters from the primary movie, a few of their character traits intact, in a unique story. That is an unapologetic leave-your-brains-at-home-and-go-have-a-laugh movie. There are beneficiant references to modern Telugu cinema and the fourth wall is damaged again and again. A number of the occasions are inane and the tone is uneven; the movie oscillates between being totally boring and hilarious. Nonetheless, F3 is an enchancment on F2, with extra laugh-aloud moments.

Venky (Venkatesh Daggubati) works on the RTO workplace and is in search of shortcuts to generate profits. His is a stereotyped world the place his stepmother (Tulasi) and siblings count on him to be an ATM, nothing much less. In the meantime, there’s Varun Yadav (Varun Tej) who does nothing specifically, accompanied by Sunil (who returns to his forte of comedy), desperately attempting to generate profits. The lads have a face-off with streetsmart ladies – performed by Tamannaah Bhatia, Mehreen Pirzada, Pragathi, Annapurna and Y Vijaya. There’s additionally Pradeep who sticks to anthega anthega and pulls a shock in the direction of the tip.

F3: Enjoyable and Frustration

Forged: Venkatesh, Varun Tej, Tamannaah, Mehreen

Path: Anil Ravipudi

Music: Devi Sri Prasad

The preliminary half-hour is moderately bland. The enjoyable begins, in a small manner, when an unsuspecting couple does a Vishwaroopam Kamal Haasan sort of a flip to Varun and Sunil. Ravipudi regularly pulls out a number of methods from his hat. The occasions that occur round Venkatesh’s night time blindness set the course for a curler coaster enjoyable journey. Varun’s stutter and the way wherein he and people round him break right into a gig works on some events. The one character who has no intention or time for lame jokes is Murali Sharma because the industrialist. 

When the story shifts to a palatial residence, it’s a hark again to the acquainted comedies of the Eighties and 90s the place a number of characters attempt to outdo each other in a setting. 

Some snicker aloud segments come from surprising characters, like a rowdy sheeter who enters the palace, and Satya who stumbles upon… let’s not reveal it right here and spoil the enjoyable.

Sonal Chauhan and Pooja Hegde are roped in so as to add to the glamour quotient and Tamannaah finds herself in surprising conditions. The gags surrounding the taming of a ferocious bull, as a check, work. The one involving Venkatesh is a riot. Ravipudi capitalises on Venkatesh’s family-friendly picture and the actor is effortlessly spectacular at each flip.

Although the second half feels bloated and the music, too, affords nothing particular, extra hilarious gags are served up within the outlandish climax. F3 suggestions its hat to the superstars and blockbusters of up to date Telugu cinema; the humour that rides on the rise of OTTs takes the cake. 

There will probably be an F4 too and hopefully, that will probably be an additional improved franchise.
