Movie Verdict

Even though the tale isn’t particularly unique, the drawings of the characters will give you a novel impression. The film’s introduction is effective because it introduces all the important characters simultaneously, immediately drawing you into the story and making you feel like a part of it. Despite the fact that the tone and plot of the second half are briefly gloomy, the climax is funny. Nonetheless, there were some humorous moments in the first act.

As Vasuda, Farida was presented with a golden opportunity to demonstrate her worth, which she grasped with ease. Her comedic timing is also impeccable. And the rest of the actors did a fantastic job with characters like Sudharshan, Bramhaji, and Sapthagiri, whose backstories were all funny. Even though there are times when Santhosh Shoban’s acting as Viplav seems unremarkable, he nailed it overall.

Despite several issues in the second half of the film, Venkatadri Express, Merlapaka Gandhi’s debut feature, is a humorous comedy. Although he directed a few more films, none of them were box-office successes. Nevertheless, it appears probable that he will with the assistance of Like, Share, and Subscribe.

Technically speaking, Praveen Lakkaraju is one of the most undervalued composers because he composed some of the best music for several of Merlapaka Gandhi’s films, including one of the successful albums, Express Raja. However, the songs from Like Share and Subscribe and the background music in the film failed to attract attention. Like Share and Subscribe has good cinematography that may have been spectacular, whereas the cinematography in A Vasanth is only adequate.

Like, Share, and Subscribe is a funny action series that everyone may enjoy as a whole.
