Babu (Nani) is a happy-go-lucky guy with a ‘My rules…My way’ attitude. Babu falls for Keerthi (Keerthy Suresh) at love at first sight and he tries to ‘disturb’ her. Keerthy adores her father (Sachin Khedkar) very much and she wants to marry according to her father’s choice and she keeps on avoiding Babu. Finally when Keerthy falls for Babu, Her father stands between them by asking Keerthy to marry Siddharth Varma (Naveen Chnadra). What happens next How Babu manages to marry Keerthy with her Father’s consent forms the second half and so the rest of the story.
Nani is great as ‘Babu’. He keeps on rising his acting standards with every film. In ‘Nenu Local’ too he is energetic and confident in his role as ‘Babu’. Nani’s timing in comedy scenes and his ease in performance is a treat to watch. His chemistry with Keerthy Suresh is one of the highlights of the film.
Keerthy Suresh looks good onscreen and impressed with her performance too. She is very good at emotional scenes as well as in her scenes with Nani. Keerthy Suresh suits the role perfectly as a girl who struggles between her father and lover.
Naveen Chandra played a crucial role in this film and he looks fit as cop. Though there isn’t much scope for performance he did a decent job. Sachin Khedkar is impressive as Keerthy’s dad. Posani Krishnamurali, Rao Ramesh are adequate.

Entertainment in First Half
Gets Predictable at times in Second Half
As a story ‘Nenu Local’ is not a new one but with entertaining narration enhanced by Nani’s energetic performance made this film work. Most of the first half deals with the teasing romance between Nani – Keerthy. Director Trinadha Rao along with writer Prasanna Kumar blended this love story with ample entertainment. First half is a big asset for this film.
Second half is filled with Drama and Emotions where the story takes the front seat. Though the story becomes predictable at times, good dialogues and light hearted entertainment saved the film in second half. Music by Devi Sri Prasad is very good and BGM is adequate. Picturisation of songs could have been better.Production values by Producer Sirish are good and are upto the standards of Sri Venkateswara Creations banner.
‘Nenu Local’ is a perfectly packed commercial package that will surely entertain. Love story with good chemistry between lead pair along with entertainment and good music made this film an enjoyable watch. ‘Nenu Local’ will continue the success streak of Nani.
