Director Teja has given some blockbuster hits in the past, but off late his films have not clicked at the box office. He is now back with his upcoming film ‘1000 Abaddalu’. Starring Sai Ram Shankar and Ester in lead roles, the movie also has Naga Babu in an out and out comedy role. 1000 Abaddalu has released today in Andhra Pradesh
Satya(Sai Ram Shankar) is the owner of an advertising company. He happens to fall in love with Satya (Esther), who shares his name. But he comes to know that she is already engaged. Following his heart, he plans to woo her with the help of his friends. He cooks up a lot of lies and finally ends up marrying her.
Just when everything seems to be going fine, the wife realises that she has been duped with a lot of lies. The couple go through major problems and get separated.
Will Satya cook some more lies to bring his wife back ?Or will he win her heart with his true love. That forms the story.
Naga Babu is the biggest asset of the film. He plays the role of Tower Star, a lover boy who is madly in love with Esther. Though he does not have a major role, he manages to entertain whenever he appears on the screen. His comedy timing is awesome and Teja has exploited it to the best.
Sai Ram Shankar has done a decent job. Comedy is good in places, especially in the second half. Some scenes, where Sai Ram Shankar woos the heroine with lies, have been executed nicely.
Except for some comedy bits, the rest of the film is quite stale and routine. The climax block seems very slow, with unnecessary scenes. Some of the scenes can be edited out, to reduce the run time.
Logic is missing, especially in the second half. Two songs in the second half are badly placed and spoil the flow of the film. The family drama scenes do not appear natural.
The heroine’s characterization is not up to the mark. Esther needs to work on her acting skills. She could not carry the role convincingly.
Teja always manages to extract decent music from his music directors. Even in 1000 Abaddalu, the music is quite OK. Two songs in the first half are good. Camera work is nice, especially in all the song sequences.
Dialogues written for Naga Babu are hilarious. Teja’s direction is mediocre in this film.
Though Teja always says that he wants to make ‘different’ films, he ends up making routine flicks. 1000 Abaddalu can be watched only for Naga Babu. Otherwise, there is nothing much for the viewer in this film.
