Aadi Pinishetty who is riding after the success of ‘Sarrainodu’ ‘Neevevaro’, and ‘Ranagasthalam’ in which he played crucial roles, he is set to test his luck as a hero with crime thriller ‘Neevevaro’ which hit the screens today. Let’s see whether he can pull off as a solo hero or not.
Kalyan (Aadi Pinishetty), a chef by profession is a man with noble intentions. Despite being blind, he runs a restaurant on his own and proves that blindness can’t be an excuse.
On the other hand, Anu (Ritika Singh) his neighbor falls in love with him, but Kalyan’s heart goes for Vennela (Taapsee), a generous soul. When he proposes his love to Vennela and everything seems going fine, Vennela reveals a shocking news that a call money gang is threatening to kill her if she fails to pay Rs 25 lakhs which she took for her father’s operation.
Kalyan assures her that he will pay the amount, but he meets with an accident and after he gets into consciousness, Vennela goes missing. The biggest advantage of the accident is he gets his vision back. What happened to Vennela and can he meet her in the end forms the rest of the story.
Aadi Pinishetty proves himself as a valuable talent once again. He brings depth to his character.
Taapsee, who has been doing performance-oriented roles since ‘Pink’ in Bollywood, gets another meaty role in ‘Neevevaro’ and she proved her mettle once again.
Ritika Singh, who rose to fame with’Guru’ has a limited screen presence and her role doesn’t have much importance.
Vennela Kishore and Saptagiri gave some comic relief in otherwise a serious crime drama.
Though the movie starts on an interesting note with an interval bang, the movie becomes a predictable and tedious tale in the latter half. A taut screenplay is the major USP for crime thrillers and director failed to execute it properly here.
Aadi and Taapsee performances
Lack of thrilling elements
On the whole, ‘Neevevaro’ is a good story with failed execution.
