Director Vakkantham Vamsi’s latest venture, “Extra Ordinary Man,” featuring Nithiin and Sreeleela in lead roles, has garnered mixed reactions for its unconventional take on commercial cinema. The film, filled with absurdity and sporadic laughter, presents a narrative that seems to satirize the very essence of typical mainstream movies.
The storyline revolves around Abhinay (played by Nithiin), a junior artist in the Telugu film industry aspiring to become a lead actor. Portrayed as a carefree individual unfazed by setbacks, Abhinay’s journey takes a twist when he embarks on a quest to be a real-life hero after facing continuous rejections in his professional life.
“Extra Ordinary Man” delves into spoof-like sequences and absurd situations, intending to offer a humorous take on cinematic tropes. However, the film’s execution seems to leave viewers divided, with some finding the humor engaging while others feel frustrated or bored by the exaggerated approach.
While Sreeleela’s character, Likitha, adds sporadic song-and-dance sequences, these instances appear disconnected from the storyline, contributing little to the overall plot. The movie lacks cohesive writing and editing, leaving certain character arcs and narrative threads underdeveloped and unexplained, ultimately affecting the audience’s engagement.
The film’s attempt to mock typical commercial elements, including the portrayal of the villain Nero (played by Sudev Nair), results in sequences that seem more farcical than impactful. Despite sporadic moments of humor, especially in Rao Ramesh’s scenes with Nithiin, the film fails to maintain a consistent tone, oscillating between mockery and succumbing to the very tropes it aims to ridicule.
“Extra Ordinary Man” draws attention to Vakkantham Vamsi’s creative ideas, yet struggles to fully realize them on screen, leaving viewers perplexed and searching for a more focused and coherent storyline. The inclusion of toilet humor and clichéd comedic tropes further detracts from the film’s narrative integrity.
While the film attempts to break the mold of conventional storytelling, it appears to fall short in balancing its satirical approach with a well-structured and engaging storyline, resulting in a polarizing viewing experience for audiences.
