Abhi (Sushanth) runs a marriage bureau just outside registration office. He specialized person for making couple married or make them compromise in his bureau. Priya (Shanvi) a fashion designer daughter of Shanker Patel (Nagineedu), a local don. Priya approaches Abhi for separating a young couple, but Abhi falls in love with Priya in that process. He plays many tricks to impress her and win her heart. Mean while, Priya’s bava (Devi Gil) approaches Abhi for help. What type of help did Dev Gil ask Abhi ? What happens to Abhi – Priya’s Love? Forms rest of the story-line.
Sushanth has positive body language in the movie and he is looking good. He worked really hard in dances and it shows up. Shanvi Srivasthav is attractive, she fits the bill. Kota Srinivasa Rao, Nagineedu and Dev Gil didn’t have effective roles in the movie. Raghubabu as Dev Gil’s sidekick provides few laughs. Gay jokes with Dhanraj, Venu and Tagubothu Ramesh just crossed the limits.
Story of the film is interesting. Screenplay Karthik Reddy is shabby. The way hero expresses his feeling and confirms his love is unrealistic and stretched to the core. Direction is not up to the mark. Karthik Reddy started off narrating in an effective way but later he drags single point till the end, which let the boredom to creep in the film.
Music by Anup Rubens is mediocre. Background music is ok. Dialogues by Karthik Reddy are adequate. Cinematography by Arun Kumar is fair. Fights by Kanal Kannal are middling. Editing could have been crispier. The production values are good.
The promise of the premise of Karthik Reddy maiden directorial venture Adda, gave the hope that a decent offering is on the cards. It would be unjust to be entirely dismissive about the movie, but it got to be said that rawness of a debutante director and a slapdash script let down an honest effort. It’s the kind of film into which, even if you enter in with rock-bottom expectations, you are likely to walk out terribly overwrought and foiled.
Survi Review: 1.5/5
