F3 Movie Review: F2, starring Venkatesh and Varun Tej, was a smash movie, launching Telugu’s biggest comedy franchise. After the success of F2, Anil Ravipudiu returned with F3, which many fans had been anticipating. F3 was delayed numerous times owing to the pandemic, but it finally came out with big expectations, so let’s see if it lives up to the hype.
The plot of F3 revolves around money, as Venky (Venkatesh) and Varun (Varun Tej) find themselves in financial trouble due to their spouses’ expenses. However, to cope with their losses, Venky and Varun decided to start a hotel business. However, things take a different turn when a big shot visits their hotel, which eventually leads to a large fraud business. Unfortunately, Venky and Varun become involved in this situation due to Harika’s (Tamannaah) greedy family. The rest of the story is about how Venky and Varun managed to escape from this scenario.

Comedy films do not require a plot because the makers’ primary goal is to make the audience laugh, and if the audience enjoys the comedy, they will not care about the plot. F3, on the other hand, fits into the same genre; it doesn’t have a wonderful story, but I’d call it paisa vasool cinema because of the comedy, which worked out quite nicely in the picture.
However, the film’s storyline begins with Murali Sharma’s voice-over, in which he emphasizes the value of money, saying that if someone has money, they may make fun of and enjoy themselves, however, if they don’t, they become dissatisfied, which is precisely the fundamental point of the film. However, the film falls flat after 30 minutes because the story doesn’t progress and we feel like we’re watching comedy bits. The first half ended with key characters’ introduction and flaws with comedy scenes, as we can see some story in the second half but it doesn’t land well, but what worked in the second half is Sonal Chauhan’s twist, and finally, the film ends with comedy.
Venkatesh and Varun Tej are the film’s biggest backbones, and this time Anil Ravipudi added some flaws to their characters, such as Venkatesh’s night blindness and Varun Tej’s stammering problem, and Venkatesh once again nailed it with his brilliant performance, he engages you in every frame, and Varun is no less, as he tried to match Venkatesh in every scene and he effortlessly pulled it off
Anil Ravipudi is a master of humor filmmaking since he attempts to infuse humor into every picture he does, and this is what has made him a successful director. However, when it comes to F3, we can plainly see that his main goal is to delight the audience with his humor, as he didn’t aim to tell a tale this time, but rather to deliver a message about money, and he succeeded in doing so.
F3 looks fantastic on paper, but the cinematography by Sai Sri Ram is only OK, and the music by DSP isn’t up to par. F2’s songs and background music were superior to F3, and the rest of the departments performed admirably in accordance with the film’s requirements.
Finally, F3 is a comedy that must be seen.
