Along with a bunch of big films, a small movie titled A(Ad Infinitum) has hit the screens today. Let’s see how it is.
The film opens with a man (Nithin Prasanna) getting rescued by an NGO fifty-nine km away from Hyderabad. The doctors certify that the rescued person has lost his memory. Eventually, he begins a new life with the name Sanjiv and falls for a nurse Pallavi(Preethi Asrani), and marries her. But at regular intervals, Sanjiv gets dreams of his crazy past. Who is Sanjiv? What is his past? To know that, you have to catch the film in cinemas near you.
The entire first half runs on a decent note maintaining the suspense factor in Sanjiv’s character. The family drama between Sanjiv and Pallavi has been narrated in an authentic manner. Preethi Asrani as the middle-class homemaker gave a good performance in her purposeful role.
Nithiin Prasanna as the male lead did a decent job in his character which has multiple shades. The interval block and the core concept of Brain Ageing have been projected with thrilling elements in the second half.
All the other artists, who did key roles in the contemporary time period and flashback episode are apt in their given roles.
Though the core concept has been projected in a decent manner, it had a solid scope to present in an even more gripping and engaging manner which was missed by the director. The idea behind the film’s title A(Ad Infinitum) has no justification in the proceedings.
There are a few illogical scenes like kidnapping roadside kids and cops unable to trace the culprit even after the incidents get recorded in CCTV footage look silly. Adding to it, a man doing experiments from the past thirty years that too in a forest area by hiding from cops also misses logic.
Director cum screenwriter, Ugandhar Muni succeeded to an extent in presenting his idea in a decent manner. If he would have taken time in exploring the core concept in an even better way, the result would have been unanimous. Production values by Geetha Minsala’s production house are decent.
Editing work is good as the film hardly has unwanted scenes. The cinematography by Praveen K Bangari is apt for the film’s genre. The background score by Vijay Kurakula is super as it adds depth to the proceedings in all the key scenes.
On the whole, A(Ad Infinitum) is a thriller which deals with a different concept related to the pituitary gland in the brain system. Barring a few illogical scenes here and there, the narration part is just about okay and those who love concept thrillers can only give this film a shot during this weekend.
