Nothing scared but the truth

Neevevaro: Movie Review


Neevevaro a crime investigating thriller, which is an official remake of Tamil movie Adhe Kangal. Writer Kona Venkat has penned the script for this Telugu adaptation, which has been produced by MVV Satyanarayana. The movie has received a U/A certificate from the censor board and its runtime is 138 minutes.

Movie story: The film revolves around the story of blind chef Kalyan (Aadhi Pinisetty), who falls in love with Vennela (Taapsee Pannu), who comes visiting him at his restaurant. As the two make plans for their future, in a twist of fate, Vennela goes missing. As Kalyan tries to find her, many unexpected and shocking events unfold before him.

Review: Aadhi Pinisetty has delivered a brilliant performance, which is the highlight of Neevevaro. Taapsee Pannu and Ritika Singh have done good jobs and their chemistry with Aadhi is among the attractions of the movie. Vennela Kishore and others have also done justice to their roles. The first half of Neevevaro runs on a slow pace and the story gains momentum towards the interval. But the story falls flat with some predictable scenes. The movie lacks thrills and chills. Neevevaro has decent production values and good background score, beautiful picturization, the choreography of action and punchlines are the attractions of the technical front. Neevevaro trailer has impressed everyone big time, but the movie has failed to live up to the expectations. The theatrical trailer has created a unique interest in the film but the film falls flat in the narration itself.  The first half of the movie has some gripping moments and a beautiful romantic track but post the interval sequence, the film falls flat wholly and leaves the audiences disinterested. The film loses the grip as the plot line becomes weak in the second half of the film. The director tried to maintain a unique suspense factor for the film but it was not shaped up well in the movie. On the whole, the film disappoints.
