What Is Good
- Production values
- Aadhi Pinisetty
What Is Bad
- Forced humor
- Ritika character
Aadhi Pinisetty is convincing as a blind chef, and impresses with his improved body language, His action sequences in the second half are believable, and he emotes perfectly. Tapsee Pannu as the scheming girl with a second face, as the clever and manipulative is good, as she perfects her expressions, besides being aggressive in the stunts. Ritika Singh is a mere eye candy, while Vennela Kishore evokes genuine laughs. The rest of the cast is adequate.
Songs by Achu Rajamani are unimpressive, and act as speed breakers in the screenplay, while his BGM is good, matching the mood of the movie. Sai Sriram's cinematography captures the night sequences and the stunts perfectly. Editing by Pradeep E Raghav could have been taut, as there are drags in the second half. Director Harinath has opted to open his account in Tollywood, with Neevevaro, which is the remake of last year's Tamil sleeper hit Adhe Kangal. He has got a perfect cast, with Aadhi Pinisetty and Tapsee fighting it out to share the acting honors, while Ritika is reduced to a merely extended cameo.
The first half of Neevevaro moves at a brisk pace with twists at regular intervals, while the second half occasionally suffers from drags, but the twists and Tapsee's characterization are a revelation, as Neevevaro, despite its drags at places, unappealing songs, keeps the momentum for a thriller on, with its nice twists and is an engaging entertainer, that could be a break for Aadhi Pinisetty. Harinath stays faithful to the original for the most part, while he has tried to add humor courtesy Vennela Kishore, and that actually has worked in favor Neevevaro. All said, Neevevaro is a decent crime thriller with an interesting premise and characters.
Kriti Sanon grabs a Biggie Kriti Sanon, the model turned actress, who made her film debut with the Tollywood flick One Nenokkadine directed by Sukumar opposite none other than Superstar Mahesh Babu, post the failure of the movie, went on to venture into Bollywood, where the welcome wasn't great either.
