Young Hero Aadi has hit the screens today with the romantic comedy entertainer ‘Lovely’. The movie has been produced by noted PRO B.A.Raju and B.Jaya is the director. Shanvi is the heroine in this movie and R.R.Movie Makers banner is acting as the presenter. Let us see how this romantic entertainer is.
akash (aadi) is a practical and quiet young man and doesn’t have a very high opinion of women and love stories. he’s friend he kittu (vennela kishore) is in a facebook relationship with a girl named lalli (chinmayee ghatrazu). When it’s time to meet, Kittu develops cold feet and out of fear of rejection, sends Akash to meet Lalli. on the other hand, lalli decides to send her friend lavanya (shanvi) to the meeting. it’s love at first sight for this ‘new’ couple and they soon develop a deep bond.
Just when everything seems nice and rosy, Lavanya’s father, Mangalampalli Maharadhi (Rajendra Prasad), enters the scene and is unimpressed with Akash’s behavior. now he is up to the akash to convince maharadhi to change his mind. will maharadhi change his mind?
aadhi is vastly improved from his first film and is impressive in songs and action sequences. now he feels more comfortable in the emotional scenes and it will do well if he keeps working on it. shanvi makes an impressive debut. She looks cute and she will do well in the industry if she can work on her acting skills a bit. there is good chemistry between the main couple and the romance track has been handled well.
rajendra prasad is impressive in the role of father. he pulls off humorous scenes and emotional sequences with equal ease and is a joy to watch. After a long time, Vennela Kishore gets a meaty role and shines fantastically. chinmayee ghatrazu steals the show with a spirited performance and her telangana accent works in a big way.
paruchuri gopalakrishna entertains in a brief role. ahuti prasad elicits some laughs in a small role. the first half is breezy and progresses at a lively pace. the songs have been well filmed.
the climax could have been better. the ‘father – daughter lover’ conflict point has not been dealt with effectively and seems a bit contrived. there are some scenes where care should have been taken to avoid glaring mistakes.
The second half loses tempo and the narration slows down. the story is also extremely predictable and there is no procedural curiosity. the sentimental angle between father and daughter could have been handled better.
The cinematography is very good and the film has nice visuals. Director Jaya B manages to maintain a good rhythm and tempo in the first half of the film. the dialogues are sharp and effective. editing is neat. Aadi’s fights and dances have been impressively choreographed.
lovely is a movie that works mainly because of its good entertainment quotient and its lively pace in the first half. the romance track is good and the chemistry between the hero and heroine is a delight to watch. the second half is a bit slow and a better climax could have made a big difference. overall b jaya manages to do a good job with this movie.
