Awe review – Get AWEstruck by a free-spirited flick

Awe Movie Review

Awe Review , Rating

Telugu360 Rating 3.25/5

Spoiler free Story & Theme :

A chef, a couple who’re about to get married , a magician , a drug junkie , a wanna be time traveller and a woman are the key characters of this film. The screenplay initially appears similar to award winning film “Chandamama Kadhalu“ and few other similar concept films. The said screenplay of “Chandama Kadhalu “ is , as everyone knows , story is amalgamation of multiple individuals’ short stories narrated independently at the beginning , they meet at some point of their life travel and move forward for a common cause. But AWE is NOT that kind of screenplay on its entirety and is much more than that. The similarities end very soon in first half and are limited to only introduction of first four key characters. Once each character of #AWE is established, audience will feel that this film’s teasers are not just bait, but the it is indeed a different one.

AWE is a film that will split the audiences – the twists of its plot will either impress you or drive you crazy! Many out of the box films fail in convincing audience about their core concept, but that is where exactly AWE scores big. After building up enough curiosity with initial scenes, once the director discloses the “surprise factor”, many movies fizzle out but AWE arrests audience after revealing what it is about. The smartness of the script developers ( Scriptville ) can be seen in inserting Fish and Bonsai Tree characters into this otherwise serious story. Nani and Raviteja nailed it as Fish and Tree with their dubbing. The importance of Plants told by Raviteja in comical way sends the whole theatre into laughter.

A sexual disorder was sympathetically discussed. Another concept abusing girls by some of the near and dear was boldly discussed and it is kind of extension to #MeToo movement. However , slow narration is the major drawback of this film.

Writerand director Prasanth Varma brought in fresh energy to Telugu films. How on this earth was he able to conceive this idea for Telugu industry? Though he took cue from some Hollywood scripts, his work in customizing the script for Telugu audience is commendable. Mark A. Robin background score is superb and so is Karthi’s photography. Nani as a producer spent adequately wherever required. With the offbeat artwork, cool visuals this film got required hatke look.

All actors have performed well !

Highlights :

  • Everything about the movie is unconventional
  • Nani and Raviteja voiceovers for Fish & Bonsai Tree are similar to Hollywood animation movies
  • Social message about girl child Abuse
  • Social message on importance of Plants
  • Superb cinematography , background score and artwork
  • The medical reasoning on LGBT community
  • All artists’ performances

Negatives :

  • People who do not understand the concept in climax, will not get the movie at all
  • Magician thread is boring at times
  • Avasarala Srinivas thread should have been more understandable for common audience ( Of course it is difficult to detail the Time Travel in little time they have )
  • Concept will attract very limited set of audiences commercially

Verdict :

Awe is a truly different kind of film by many parameters with smart screenplay , unconventional concept , underlined social message and a shock value ! Not sticking to a specific genre , this film in itself is a genre – Out of the Box ! It may not be liked by all sections of audiences – but for those who want a change, who want a different film .. Go and get AWEstruck !

In few cities, where they could not get fancy offers, producer cum USA distributor ‘Varahi’ released on their own.

‘Jyo Achyutananda’ has collected a $615,000 gross i.e. $322,000 Share in USA. In INR ,USA closing share is 2 Crore 12 lakhs. 

For worldwide share calculations purpose,’Jyo..’ USA theatrical share is 2 crore 12 lakh rupees.

From Profit/loss calculation POV , ‘Jyo..’ USA exhibitors had lost 55-60% of their investment – “wherever it is sold” to local exhibitors. ‘Jyo..’ was sold at a “ratio of $800K”, collected a $322K share.

In a nutshell, producer cum distributor Mr. Sai Korrapati has walked away with solid profits, exhibitors lost heavy amounts.
