“Karthik Ratnam, known for films like ‘C/o Kancherapalem’ and ‘Narappa,’ stars in ‘Lingoccha,’ directed by Anand Bada. The movie, released today, unfolds a familiar story set in the Old City of Hyderabad.
‘Lingoccha’ delves into the romance between Shiva (played by Karthik Ratnam) and Noorjahan (portrayed by Supyardee Singh) from their early years. However, their love faces opposition from Noorjahan’s brother, Anwar (played by Kunal Kaushik).
Highs and Lows:
Karthik Ratnam delivers a compelling performance as Shiva, showcasing genuine emotions. Supyardee Singh, as the female lead, impresses with her expressions and chemistry with Karthik. The movie’s first half offers some moments, but the second half struggles with a tedious and unexciting narrative.
‘Lingoccha’ falls short due to its formulaic storyline and lackluster execution. The movie’s pace falters in the second half, lacking a well-established conflict. Despite good visuals and music, the film suffers from dull moments and weak character design.
Director Anand Bada’s handling of the routine plot feels unremarkable. The film’s conclusion, although decent, fails to redeem its lackluster presentation throughout.
‘Lingoccha’ proves to be a letdown due to its mundane storyline. While the lead actors shine, the film’s inability to sustain engagement, especially in the second half, makes it a tiresome viewing experience.”
