Manchu Manoj is coming with his new film Current Theega today after a few postponements of the film in the recent days. The devastation caused by the cyclone Hudhud in the costal city of Visakhapatnam is the major reason for the postpone of the movie. This is the debut film of the internationally popular porn star Sunny Leone and Rakul Preet Singh is the female lead in the movie. This is a film based on the romantic story element.
Current Theega is the Tamil remake of the film Varuthupadtha Valibar Sangam released in 2013, directed by Ponram with Sivakarthikeya, Satya Raj and Sri Divya in the lead roles. The same movie was released in Kannada as Adyaksha as the title and in Telugu now as Current Theega. Current Theega is made up as a romantic entertainer.
The film begins with the house of Jagapathi Babu questioning about killing his daughter who ran away with the guy she loved. Manoj and Vennela Kishore are the guys in a village who will be roaming on the streets and Manoj falls in love with Sunny Leone, who is working as teacher in the school in their village. Manoj writes a letter to her and asks Rakul Preet Singh to give the letter to her. Using this chance, Rakul makes Manoj to do many things and literally plays with him. As Rakul Preet Singh doesn’t want to marry in the early age as she want to do higher studies, she decides to run away with Manoj. The rest is all about how both of them faced the consequences and the pressure from her father Jagapathi Babu.
As said above, Current Theega is the complete remake of the Tamil film Varuthupadtha Valibar Sangham, the story is copied from line by line. Manchu Manoj entertains the audience with his mark comedy and action. Sunny Leone as the teacher of the school is what made the movie to release in more than 30 countries. No wonder if we say that Sunny Leone dominated the entire cast of the movie a and just because of her, the movie is releasing in more than 30 countries. Rakul and Jagapathi Babu played the roles very good and upto the mark. This movie will help Rakul Preet Singh to fetch some more chances in Telugu Film Industry. Vennela Kishore has entertained as always with his mark comedy as friend of Manchu Manoj on screen.
Songs that composed by Achu are too good and will entertain the audience for sure. This will be a plus point for the movie. Manchu Manoj also crooned a break up song in this movie.
Manchu Manoj action, Sunny Leone, Songs
Slow down in the story by second half. As Tamil film is released a year back, most of the audience are not new to it.
Current Theega has enough current to cash the season.
