Adda opens with stylish entry by Abhi [Sushanth] a youngster specialized in creating rifts between lovers to raise money. Shanvi [Priya] approaches Abhi seeking a help for her sisters’s love marriage with Avasarala Rambabu. Meanwhile, duo starts liking each-other and a predictable twist is here. Actual story starts when Abhi writes a love letter to Priya and she gets impressed. How will Abhi manage to win Priya’s heart is climax of Adda.
Sushanth has touched fox’s tail for tremendous openings that happened due to postponement of Attarintiki Daredi. While the actor’s expressions were ok, his dance knowledge helped him to go well with songs and the dialogue delivery needs an expression change with each.
Shanvi has given her best, as Priya she is a glam doll and feast to watch on screen.
Rest of the cast, Raghubabu, Jayaprakash Reddy, Dhanraj, Venu and Thagubothu Ramesh has done their parts well.
Shwetha Bharadwaj is hot in the item number and Special appearances by Nagarjuna and ANR in ‘Endukey’ song are appealing.
Sai Karthik’s debut may not go well with all centers of audiences, as the script is not quite enthralling and slow paced narration. Somehow, his screenplay gelled with audiences specially teenagers.
Anoop Rubens musicals have helped the movie. Even though the choreography elevated the audio, few tracks were wasted
Arun Kumar’s cinematography is ok. Editing could have been done better, as the climax and pre-climax appears to be exhausted.
Sushanth’s Adda is a drag for simple script with predictable twists. Debutant director Sai Karthik is potent that he made audiences to sit with his screenplay and comedy bits here and there. While the movie is not so gripping, climax and pre-climax scenes doomed.
Anoop Rubens scores are appealing but were placed untimely and few wasted. Sushanth is watchable with trendy look and Shanvi is an asset for Adda. First half is quite entertaining compared to the second because of one-liners and comic scenes.
Totally, crispy one-liners, dance and few songs are the highlights of Adda.
Watch Adda for one-liners, cheerful first half with good work by Anoop Rubens, if you are free this weekend…
