Nawin, son of senior actor Naresh and Grandson of Vijayanirmala who has worked as editor for many movies,debut as hero,with Nandini Nursing Home and it has created good buzz among the film circles as he has earned good name for his slick and trendy editing in the industry.
It has caught the attention of movie goers as the trailer was promising let’s see weather it has lived up to the buzz,
Chandu (Nawin) who studied M.A. gets job as a doctor( yes you read it right MA student becomes doctor ) in Nandini Nursing home due to some silly and illogical circumstances. Though he doesn’t know anything about medicine he successfully con people that he is a doctor and does his job without any hassles with the help of a compounder in the hospital (Shakalaka Shankar).
One day he chances upon Nandini (Nithya), the hospital owner’s daughter, and he saves her when elevator is stuck due to short circuit. Nandini falls in love with him a logic beaten to death in Tollywood . But he also has a past love story. When he was working in Vizag, he loves a girl Amulya (Swetha) who dumps him after few days. Hence he doesn’t take much interest in Nandini.
On the other hand, a patient dies due to his lack of knowledge in medicine. This leads to a major problem.
Nawin in his debut attempt doesn’t make any impression either with his looks or acting. He lacks qualities to be a movie hero. His dialogue delivery is worse than imported villains. Still wonder why the director and producer cast them as heroines they neither have glamour appeal or acting skills.
Shakalaka Shankar and Vennela Kishore have provided some laughs in the first half. Sapthagiri is wasted.
The movie is shot in low standards. The camera work and editing is shabbily done. Couple of songs are good to hear.
Silly comedy track stretched
Logic beaten to death
Mix of genres
“Nandini Nursing Home” begins as a comedy movie, then focuses on love track, then hints about horror elements, later ends on ghost angle.Looks like the director wanted to follow the trend of comedy movies mixed with ghost factor.
But unfortunately the director seems to have confused how to tell this story as he has added all elements as per his convenience to run the story for more than two hours. Beating all the logic, the writer and director have made this movie in shabby way.
First and foremost, it is illogical to think that a nursing home owner who is also famous doctor easily trusts the hero who has not done MBBS and hands over the job of duty doctor.
As the title says, the movie mostly runs in the hospital, and it is shown that entire hospital runs on this doctor. The way hospital scenes are dealt is enough to tell how silly the direction is.
In a hospital room, Saptagiri runs a escort services because nobody suspects that one would run sex racket in a nursing home. A chain snatcher played by Vennela Kishore gets admitted in this hospital to escape from a police case with a self-made injury and hero treats him like a cow.
Thinking that he is in coma, hero and Shakalaka Shankar do all kind of experiments on him. This is done as comedy which is stretched beyond a point. In the first half, we see all these scenes plus one silly love track between Nawin and Swetha. Nawin being an editor would have chopped the entire love track if he was not the hero.
The first half is bearable despite not much story happening but post interval it is the horror elements turns out to be real horror for us.
The ghost angle is revealed by the time we are tired of seeing these silly drama and then the climax sequences further tests our patience.
The film is out rightly poor attempt from the new director who seems to be as confused as the hero. For Naresh’s son, Nawin this is terrible launch. Overall, it is a illogical comedy of horrors.
“Nandini Nursing Home will be closed in a day or two as the patients ( Audience ) are not treated properly and no one will pay a visit as the Head of the Nursing Home ( Director) is not qualified to treat people ( To Direct Movies) ”
