What is bad:
The film is the remake of “A Wednesday” and comparison with the original film is inevitable. “Eenadu”, although for most part, retains the essence of the original flick but doesn’t quite create that same dramatic impact. Too many scenes have a problem with the lip synchronization. Lakshmi's role as the Chief Secretary is a little half baked. Poonam Kaur’s role is completely forgotten after a point of time.
“Eenadu” is a technically flawless film except for the patchy work in dubbing. Manoj Soni’s cinematography captures the mood and pace of the film with magnificence. Shruthi Hassan’s debut as a music director couldn’t have been more sensational. She packs a punch with her explosive background score which provides an extra dose of adrenaline to the story. Editing by Rameshwar Bhagwat is top notch in keeping this film engaging throughout. Neelakanta who wrote some of the most thought provoking dialogues in recent times also infuses some subtle comedy. Debutant director, Chakri Toleti owes a great deal to the brilliant story written by Neeraj Pandey. He religiously follows the footsteps of Neeraj Pandey and ensures that the film stands out rather than being just another thriller.
Eenadu is the kind of film, especially the theme, which comes once in a blue moon. It’s a film marked with anger and frustration of a tortured soul written all over it. A thought provoking tale of a common man, Eenadu is a splendid tale of conscience, the choices we make and above all, life itself.
If you have seen the original flick in Hindi, don’t reveal the story. If not, go watch “Eenadu” today. It’s a wonderful film which promises some edge of the seat action.
