Adivi Sesh seen as cop plays it with devilish delight. He is enjoying playing the character, and it is visible onscreen.

However, there are many moments which stand out due to the timing and intensity.

It allows him to showcase emotions that he usually doesn’t. Apart from them, there is the senior Murali Sharma is doing his bit to generate the required drama.

Adivi Sesh and Regina
Gets a bit complex at times
Director Venki Ramji has picked a thrilling subject for his debut venture Evaru. The movie gets on track from the first scene and is gripping until the end. For a thriller genre movie, what else can one expect?
What makes Evaru work is the right casting and a captivating story to boost the proceedings. The engaging narratives take over as soon as Regina and Adivi Sesh comes face to face. The unpredictable screenplay makes one guessing what happens next. And the story is where real meat lies with so much packed in to never let the attention waver.
Between the two halves, the second half scores with the right amount of emotional touch-up and twists. The latter is not purposeless and embedded well into the narrative. As many might be aware, Evaru is based on a foreign movie which is highly acclaimed. Ramji has used the basic twists and narrative structure as it is but with a local twist in the story. It is what makes Evaru stand out in its own.
The climax is superb and sure to take everyone by surprise. It includes even those who have seen the original version which Evaru is based on.
The music by Sricharan Pakala is excellent. He helps to keep the tension alive in the story with his exemplary work. The score is trendy and slick. The cinematography is extraordinary and gives a rich texture to the movie. The editing is fabulous. The frames are tight and give a racy feel to the movie. Abburi Ravi’s dialogues are apt and have enough depth to get the required impact. And last but not least, producer Prasad V Potluri must be appreciated for backing a film with unique content. Not only that, producing it with such high production values.
Bottom line: Thrill Ride With Sharp Turns & Twists
