‘Neevevaro’ is a love triangle at the beginning. A blind chef Kalyan ( Aadhi Pinisetty ) , loves Vennela ( Tapsee ), while his childhood friend Anu ( Ritika ) is in love with him. On his engagement day with Anu he drives himself into a crime web , followed by an accident — the film turns into a investigative thriller since then.
Rest of the story is about how kalyan chases down the criminal , and how finally he nabs them !
Performances : For first half an hour Aadhi Pinisetty shows his mark good performance as a blind guy , later his characterization pales down and so is his performance. Tapsee as Vennela got an interesting role , she fits the role well. Ritika Singh as Anu is good choice in this small budget film. Tulasi , Sivajiraja , Satyakrishna as parents of hero heroines and comedian saptagiri as a helping guy to hero played routine roles. Star comedian Vennela Kishore comedy did not work much in this film, as a constable he got lengthy role in second half.
Crime thrillers are turned lucrative in Tollywood in last few years. Given the limited budget, an average talk is helping them out to recover the budget. Satellite , digital rights etc. are adding up as aprofit. So every writer , director started milking same genre time and again. ‘ Neevevaro’ is pretty much such in vain attempt to cash in trendy crime investigation theme.
Plot starts off with a triangular drama between noble intention characters Kalyan, Anu and Vennela. In general first half goes easy on audience , but this film right from the word go on pathos mode and slow narration. Beaten to death track ..Hero gets impressed by a heroine who donates food to needy elder age beggers etc sentimental scenes occupy first half major part. Once hero meets with an accident , gets his eye vision , things turn crime angle. A call money gang involves , kalyan investigates about what happened to vennela.
Second half is investigation with no good puzzles to engage the audience. Predictable twists , poor screenplay make a pale second half , which is a follow-up to a slow first half.
Hero characterization had been mentally, physically so competent when he was blind , but after getting eye vision – turns routine.
Towards the climax , after revealing who is the criminal , things are interesting for a while. That is only worked out item in whole film. Music is forgettable right after those songs. Overall , not a satisfactory experience
- Aadi Pinisetty performance
- Tapsee characterization
- Slow , sentimental first half
- Unappealing second half
- Crime story lacks thrill
‘ Neevevaro ‘ is a poorly made crime investigating thriller. This is another movie in vain tried to cash in the present trend of crime thriller. Aadhi’s effort , Tapsee characterization aren’t enough to rescue this film.
