Zombie Reddy Movie Review and Rating:
Director Prashanth Varma has mixed faction elements with Zombies to make the audiences get connected with this new genre. The basic plot looks interesting but the first half of Zombie Reddy is filled with silly and unwanted entertainment. Except for the interval episode, the first half of Zombie Reddy is disappointing and falls flat. Some of the satires on coronavirus works well.
Zombie Reddy picks up well in the second half. The entire episodes on Zombies are well presented. Prashanth Varma took enough care as he is well aware that the episodes on zombies are quite crucial for the film. Right from their makeup to the presentation, everything looks great and reminds us about Hollywood zombie films. Things go well till the climax and the concluding episodes miss the logic and sound half baked. On the whole, the second half of Zombie Reddy sounds impressive if one ignores the minor flaws.
Zombie Reddy Movie Verdict:
Overall, Zombie Reddy offers a new experience for the Telugu audience who never experienced the genre of Zombies. All in all, Zombie Reddy makes a decent attempt to entertain the audiences, and the director Prashanth Varma is successful in doing the same.
Zombie Reddy movie Rating: 3/5.
