What is bad:
Despite a running time of less than two hours, Adavi falters and becomes predictable which leaves the audience restless. The biggest culprit for this was the lack of thrills and chills which was supposed to be the USP of Adavi. Almost 80% of the movie is dedicated to showing the people on the run from this creature and they keep running and shouting without scaring anyone. Unlike Predator, where the humans smartly fight back, the Adavi characters show the no such thinking which leaves them very disconnected with the audience.
One of Varma’s strong points is his story-telling ability using strong technical elements that keeps you connected. But with Adavi, he falters hugely by not being able to bring enough dramatic elements to sustain that interest and connect wit the audience. Adavi ultimately ends up as another technically brilliant but a soulless story.
The movie ends with the promise of a sequel … the viewers would certainly hope that the sequel lives up to the promises that Adavi failed to deliver!!!
