After ‘Prema Kavali’ and ‘Lovely’, there is no other hit in the account of young hero Adi Saikumar. Despite making a series of films .. rolling at the box office. Adi has been waiting a long time for a solid hit. Recently, this young hero came forward to the audience on Friday (January 7) as ‘Atithi Devo Bhava’. And let’s see how the movie is in the review.
Abhi alias Abhayram (Adi Saikumar) has been suffering from monophobia since childhood. Not alone. Must be accompanied wherever you go. A girl also tells Breakup that she brings a friend with her every time. With this he hides without telling anyone about his error. Then another girl Vaishnavi (Nuveksha) comes into his life. Did Mari Abhay tell her problem to Vaishnavi? Or not? How did monophobia become an obstacle to their love? Who is Priya who came to Abhay Flat? What changes did she make in her life? How did Abhay overcome his fear? That is the rest of the story.
How did you do that ..?
Adi Saikumar did justice to the role of Abhay. There is nothing new in acting. Nuveksha performed well in the role of Vaishnavism. Looked beautiful on screen. Rohini once again showed her experience as a hero mother on screen. Saptagiri as the hero’s friend made a funny attempt. Emmanuel, Adurs Raghu etc. acted within the scope of their roles.
How is that?
Like in ‘Bhale Bhale Magadivoy’ and ‘Mahanubhavudu’ movies .. In this movie too, the hero suffers from a monthly disorder (monophobia). The point chosen by the director is good..he failed miserably in showing it on the screen. Those two films that came out in the past also provided a good message along with entertainment. Neither of those are in this movie. Fastoff tried to make everything comedic .. but it didn’t seem to work out that much. The comedy scenes that come with Saptagiri do not cultivate much humor unless they seem to have brought it.
He tried to give a thrill for a while in the second half. That too could not be a workout. The whole movie seems to be stretched. Some scenes in the second half, however, test the viewer’s patience. The scene found in Saptagiri Drunk Drive, but the scene with Zabardast Emmanuel, are not funny unless they are attached to the movie. The climax is also very simple. And technically .. Shekhar Chandra’s music is good. Especially the song ‘Bagundundi Nuvvu Navvite’ sung by Sid Shriram is the highlight of the movie. Background music is also okay. Amarnath Bommireddy Cinematography OK. The editor has a lot of work to do with his scissors. The production values are in line with the level of the film.
