What is bad: Everything about this movie is bad. The script and the screenplay, penned by the hero's dad Dasari Narayana Rao is horrendous. Major continuity glitches mar the screenplay while the script belongs to the masala potboilers of the 80's. Arun Kumar took a long gap and one would expect that he had worked on his diction, acting skills etc. Sadly, there is no improvement at all and he remains as wooden as ever and he utters all his dialogues like he was sleeping. Sneha is wasted, infact, since the director was clearly aiming for the masses, he should have taken someone with more mass appeal. Pradeep Rawat and Aishwarya are loud and irritating. Kota Srinivas Rao tries his best. The comedy track with Venumadhav, MS, Rajesh is wasted. The 'Dasavatharam' spoof is cringeworthy. The songs pop up out of nowhere and Arun's dancing skills are zero. The director is totally clueless about what he wants to make.
Me Thinks: There came a time when Amitabh Bachchan realized that he should no longer romance heroines his daughter's age and shifted to doing character roles. There also came a time when Raghavendra Rao realized his brand of films were not working and decided to make devotional films instead. One only hopes after watching Adivishnu that the time when Dasari Narayana Rao realizes that his scripts do not work any longer and stops making films. Avoid this one at all costs!
Tailpiece: Dasari Narayana Rao is a great film maker, one who gave Telugu cinema some of its biggest hits. He is also the one who played mentor to some of the biggest stars in Tollywood. It is tough to believe that he is writing such regressive scripts for his son – almost seems like he does not want Arun to succeed in filmdom.
