AWE

When an actor like Nani decides to produce a film with a concept that is highly out-of-box and uncommon, we try to understand what could be the driving force behind it. Why did he take such a risk? What made all the cast members to work in this movie?

Plot : A young woman, Kali (Kajal Aggarwal) walks into a cafe and is very nervous about something. She is trying to figure out about something and take an important decision. On the other hand, Radha (Eesha Rebba), Shiva (Avasarala Srinivas), Krishna (Nithya Menen) and Meera (Regina Cassandra) are also stuck in life altering situations. How they are all connected? What is the important life-altering that Kali needs to take?

Performance : Kajal Aggarwal, Nithya Menen, Regina Cassandra, Eesha Rebba, Murali Sharma, Priyadarshi, all perform well in their characters. They make it easy to understand the inner turmoil that the characters are going through. We can relate to the complex story and enjoy the performances without being distracted. Nani and Ravi Teja too, score with their voice acting.

Technicalities : Karthik Ghattamaneni’s camera work for this movie is one of his bests. He gave each and every story in the movie, a new color tone. He even enhanced the feel of different complex themes without really trying too much.

Background score by Mark Robin is perfectly apt for this movie. His use od various instruments and raagas to engage audience and enhance the feel of the movie is commendable.

Editing by Nerusu Gautham is really good and apt for the movie theme. He gives it ample time to sync in and also makes an attempt to keep the movie going at a pace. His style helps the movie very much.

Writer and Director, Prashanth Verma, brings out a complex neurological analysis into the story and divides it into several parts that we can easily understand. But a problem with his script is that it tries to be too absurd and not-at-all main stream and that harms the popularity of the film. Still, the movie is a good attempt from him for the first time director.

Analysis : The movie is a refreshing attempt and a big departure from all the routine cliched films that we got accustomed to watching on big screen. Even though it is completely well executed, the movie fails to connect because of its absurd nature. This is a welcome change from the regular films but still due to its very unique nature and presentation, it remains a movie not an universally acceptable one. It does deserve one viewing from people.

Rating : 2.5/5
