Story (spoiler free):-
Arjun (Rahul Raveendran) is a engineer working in Kolkata. He loves Sweety (Chandini Chowdary) right from his childhood and he finds it so difficult to forget her. He comes to Machavaram village for her and befriend her as childhood friend. They both get along well and after series of incidents she also falls for him and she cancels her marriage with her brother in law (Ajay). This is the time where Arjun leaves the village and sends Sweety a video message and says he don’t want marriage with her. What is the reason for him to do so? What happens after that?
Howrah Bridge is a love story with a confusion angle attached to it. Story when looked as a single line is interesting but it seemed routine when seen in the movie. Rewon Yadhu, who happens to be the director and also writer for this movie could have written a better screenplay. His story backed up with nice performances could have worked well with a better screenplay. Although, this movie is not a total disappointment, it bores audience with it’s cliche moments and lame dialogues to generate comedy. Rahul Raveendran who is not having any decent hit to his credit for sometime has to face another disappointment in the name of Howrah Bridge. An interesting concept is killed by mediocre writing and the result it leaves is a total mess. To sum up, Howrah Bridge is just another uninspiring love story to come in Telugu films.
Mana Reporter Rating: 1.5/5
