Cast: Aadhi, Anchal, Shanvi,Rajendra Prasad, Vennela Kishore
Producer: BA Raju
Music: Anoop Rubens
Aadi, the son of Sai Kumar is back with the film titled ‘Lovely’ after his successful debut in Prema Kavali. Lavanya played by Shanvi and Akash played by Aadi meets each other in disguise of their friends Kittu played by Vennele Kishore and Lalli played by Chinmayi. They fall in love and as usual in the beginning Lavanya’s father played by Mangalampalli Maharadhi does not like Akash. He decides to know him better and disguises himself as a servant and goes to Akash’s home. What follows next is the climax of the film.
The film is a romantic entertainer with a touch of father sentiment. The film would have been smooth in its narration and simple in its execution. But the narration was confused and has made it complex in the end. The setup of the film is not very effective and it took off on a dull note. Things however, gets better as the story progresses but it fails to impress its audience due to technical errors and bad direction. The music in the film was good and did lift it at times and has kept the interests alive. Bad direction is the major drawback in the film. The climax of the film is not as expected and most part of it is left to the imagination of the audience.
So far as the performance is concerned, Aadi is confident and an energetic dancer. However, there is scope of improvement in his expression so as to develop as an actor. Shanvi is good looking but fails to impress. Rajendra Prasad is ok and his presence has added to the worth to the film. Vennela Kishore did a good job and is supported well by Chinmayi. Others did well in their respective roles. Dialogues are good in parts while music scored by Anup is the centre of attraction of the movie. The background set is also quite ok. Cinematography is good for a film of low budget and one of the drawbacks is the editing of the film. So far as the direction is concerned, it is ok in some scenes but not upto the mark in the other scenes. The film would have been better if the director could have maintained the grip in the entire film.
Verdict: it is a film with both positive and flaws at some vital points but can be watched just for time pass.
