1. Kamalakar’s music
2. Nagesh Banell’s Cinematography
3. Few Humorous Scenes
1. Thin Storyline
2. Predictable Screenplay
Debutante Vishwa Rachakonda played the role of a happy go lucky guy quite proficiently. He was equally good in emotional as well as romantic scenes. His chemistry with actress Punarnavi was rocking. They appeared delightful together in a romantic song. Punarnavi is not so charming, but she is a performer. The three guys who played Vishwa’s friends provided hilarity. They guy who played villain was okay. Other artists were tolerable.
Director Anudeep picked a simple story and tried to narrate it in lighter mode. All the sequences around Pittagoda were entertaining as well as emotional. He dealt romantic sequences efficiently. Picturization of romantic song was one of the best parts in the film. Good thing is Anudeep made a visually pleasing project in a shoestring budget and he was adequately supported by two technicians- Kamalakar (Music) and Nagesh Bell (Camera).The two technicians did their job flawlessly. The villain’s thread in the film was only to conclude something in the climax.
Pittagoda is a decent entertainer. Good promotions would help the film to do well at box office. Go theaters with least expectations, you may like this one.
