Garam Movie ReviewApr 21, 2016 11:38 AM
Aadi has been waiting for that elusive blockbuster to cement his place in Tollywood as a mass hero. His earlier attempts to woo the mass audiences turned futile and this talented actor played a complete mass role in 'Garam'. Madan, who earlier directed films like 'Pellaina Kothalo', directed this film and Adah Sharma played the leading lady. Let's get into the details of the movie.
Varaala Babu (Aadi) is an arrogant boy since his childhood and Ravi's (Chaitanya Krishna) father (Naresh) often insults him by comparing with his son, who is very good at studies unlike Varaala Babu. Varaala Babu hates Ravi because of this and the hatred only increases as they grow up. Ravi gets a job in Hyderabad after graduation and eventually, Varaala Babu also reaches the city in search of job. Babu comes across Sameera (Adah Sharma) one fine day and falls head over heels in love with her. As it turns out, Varaala Babu finds Ravi in a shocking state and also comes to know a truth about the heroine. What is that truth ? What is Aadi's real purpose behind his visit to Hyderabad ? How he eventually win his love etc form the crux of the story.
Aadi impresses with his energetic performance in a mass role and his diction is also good. As usual, he is good at dances and has also emoted well. Though Adah Sharma has nothing to do much in her role, she looks gorgeous. Tanikella Bharani is good and Sr.Naresh gets to play an emotional role, in which he excels. Shakalaka Shankar once again impresses in a comic role. Chaitanya Krishna does justice to his role.
Technical aspects :
The cinematography of the film is ok. Some songs were shot quite well. The music and BGM should have been better. Editing is not so good. Some unnecessary scenes should have been chopped off. Director fails in coming up with an engaging screenplay.
Plus points :
Madhu and Shakalaka Shankar's comedy
Minus points :
Adah Sharma's characterisation
Aadhi is one actor, who tries to give his best for every film. He also performed very well in 'Garam'. But the narration of Madan goes for a toss. Adah Sharma's role should have been better. The comedy of Shakalaka Shankar and Madhu is good, but Brahmanandam once again fails to evoke laughter. Given his talent, Aadi should concentrate more on selection of good stories and it will be only a matter of time before he makes it big in the industry.
Verdict : Aadi's wait for a 'garam' hit continues
