Actor Nithiin’s new movie, Extra Ordinary Man, which generated a positive buzz with its promotional content, has hit the big screens worldwide today. Delve into our review to find out how it fares.
Abhinay (Nithiin) is a junior artiste waiting for a miracle to become a hero. He meets Likitha (Sreeleela), a wealthy woman, falls in love with her, and becomes the CEO of her company. Finally, he gets a chance to be a hero, but things take a different turn. Abhi decides to handle the situations on his own. What happened next? What made Abhi turn into Satan? What’s his backstory? The movie will unfold the answers.
Nithiin, after a prolonged time, embraces a noteworthy role that delves into his comedic abilities. Vakkantham Vamsi deserves credit for recognizing this potential and crafting a well-defined character for Nithiin as a junior artiste. His comic timing and entertaining antics consistently elicit laughter.
Rao Ramesh, once again in a role tailored for him, shines, particularly in the combination scenes with Nithiin, providing delightful moments.
Rajashekar delivers a satisfactory performance in his limited role. Brahmaji and Hyper Adhi significantly contribute to the film’s comedic elements.
Despite lacking a compelling story, Extra Ordinary Man leans on its screenplay but not wholly. Vakkantham Vamsi appears to prioritize characterizations over a robust script, resulting in a film heavily reliant on comedy.
While the story may seem strong on paper, the on-screen execution falls short, with illogical scenes cleverly masked by humor and trendy dialogues.
Sreeleela, once again in a role that adds little to her career, appears to be chosen more for her looks and dancing skills than for substantial character development.
Sudev Nair’s portrayal of the villain Nero fails to impress, suggesting that casting a more suitable actor could have benefited the film.
Despite a couple of tolerable songs, the remaining songs act as hindrances to the film’s overall flow.
Vakkantham Vamsi shines as a writer to some extent, but a more focused approach to the script, especially in the second half, could have elevated the film. Comedy scenes and an okay screenplay prevent it from being a complete failure.
Harris Jayaraj delivers a decent score, but the magic doesn’t quite extend to the songs. Cinematographers Arthur A. Wilson, Yuvraj J, and Sai Sriram perform admirably. The editing could have been more refined in the second half. The production values, however, stand out positively.
On the whole, Extra Ordinary Man is a partly engaging comedy drama with decent performances from Nithiin and Rao Ramesh. The comedy scenes are a big relief. However, the film falters with a simplistic story, unengaging scenes, and a less compelling second-half screenplay. If you are okay with these aspects, you may try this film this weekend.
