PERFORMANCES:

Navadeep kept his promise in reinventing himself as his 2.0 version in the film. He immensely worked hard physically and mentally. His full grown hair and thick beard made him look like an animal and he outperforms all his previous performance. This is undoubtedly his career best performance especially the emotional scenes are terrific.

Heroine Pankhuri Gidwani did exceptionally well. She played many roles with multiple getups showing variation in her performance. Her dedication levels for the film are laudable. Bhavana did well in a modern manager role. Others like Mirchi Hemanth, Kiran gravi Dutta and Akshay Dogre contributed to the narrative effectively. Rana as Aghora is a surprise in the film. He did superbly and it will take time to recognise him as Rana if you don’t know about his presence in the film.

DRAWBACKS:

At Times In First Half

Predictable Conclusion

ANALYSIS:

Director Avaneendra has come up with a regular yet new.dimeaiom love story. He explores how a boy het to known about what true love is in a poetic as well as intense manner. Bold scenes were aesthetically shot except for a couple of scenes. The first half has slow proceedings with nothing new happening in the plot. But, the second half is where the entire concept and core elements of the film lies. The climax is well handled even though the conclusion is a familiar one.

The film was shot in Meghalaya. The gloomy weather, mountains, valleys lush green places elevates the mood of the film and is perfect for the film. Avaneendra himself acted as cinematographer and extracted what he wanted beautifully. Govind Vasantha and Krishna’s music helped in tonal shifts of the film and elevates scenes. Production values are adequate.

 Rating: 3/5

Bottom-line: Poetic Yet Intense Love Story With Navadeep’s Career Best Act
