Happy Birthday Telugu Movie Review: Though he is only one film older, the Mathu Vadalara team has returned with another distinctive movie called Happy Birthday, which was directed by Ritesh Rana. Though he made a big impression on up-and-coming filmmakers with his distinct style of filmmaking and his ability to blend all genres in movies, Happy Birthday grabs attention with its posters and trailers because it is set in a fictional world called Zincity.
A defence minister named Ritwik Sodhi passes a gun amendment bill that allows anyone to own a gun, and after the bill is passed, a gun bazaar is set up in the city, and everyone buys a gun like vegetables. On the other side, Happy (Lavanya Tripathi), who visits a pub in the Ritz Grand where all the criminals decided to loot the money, finds out that things are not as easy as they seem and learns how all the criminals

When a director wants to tell a story in a fictional world, then directors biggest plus point is no need to think about logic. The same thing happens with Happy Birthday; there are drawbacks, but it’s good to keep them aside otherwise it may ruin the fun. One of the major assets of the film is the world-building; we can say technically one of the best films in Telugu.
The film gets off to a good start with a pass because the director didn’t waste time setting up the world and established every character in a span of 15 minutes later, he takes you into a completely new world and the comedy works well in the film and that keeps you hooked throughout the movie. However, the film lacks the core emotion though the audience didn’t think about that while the fun was happening if the emotion could be placed well then the film would be in a differe If the emotion could be placed well
Sathya as Max Pain is just wonderful as no one can interpret his part, and Vennela Kishore as Ritwik Sodhi is, as usual, superb. The rest of the cast performed well. Lavanya Tripathi as Happy is brilliant and she was super lively and her expression is very good on screen.
Ritesh Raana deserves praise for tackling unusual subjects and succeeding in capturing the attention of his audience. He has a strong command of writing comedy, as evidenced by the fact that we first saw situational comedy in his first movie. This is a rare talent, and in this movie, he masterfully combines all types of comedy genres, including surreal comedy, dialogue comedy, and situational comedy. In particular, he executed the serial sequence from Mathu Vadalara, which we thought was brilliant
The remainder of the technical teams did their best, and Happy Birthday is technically excellent. Suresh Sarangam’s graphics and colour palettes are brand-new to the Telugu audience, and Kaala Bhairava once again provided an excellent background score.
Last but not least, Happy Birthday is a must-see movie in theatres, and if you like original movies, you should definitely give it a shot.
