From the first go, it is P.G.Vinda’s cinematography that is stunning. He does an amazing job. Even the rich quality of ‘colour grading’ shows on screen. Music manages to entertain. The choreography in the second half songs could have been better, but the film does elevate Chaitanya as a dancer. Editing is decent and dialogues are good in places.
The director will learn a lot from this attempt. If he can sustain the consistency in his main characters like he does with side characters, he will come out with flying colours. Also in a romantic comedy the hero’s or heroine’s sidekicks always need to be very connectable. Eg: ‘Geetanjali’ (all characters), ‘Ye Maya Chesave’ (Krishnudu), ‘Anand’ (Anish Kuruvilla and Satya). The hero’s sidekicks in ‘Adi Nuvve’ come in only when they are required for only screenplay writers’ convenience.
‘Adi Nuvve’ isn’t a great youngsters’ film, but it has got its fine points and it’s got a well disguised message too. While not many would appreciate the way the second half goes, the first half does manage to entertain.
