Sharwanand, who has been seeing back to back flops in his career is now ready with his new film Aadavallu Meeku Joharlu. Read our review to find out if the film has any juice in it or not.
Chiru(Sharwa) is the only male child in a huge joint family. That is the reason, everyone is obsessed with him and keeps on delaying his marriage. But Chiru falls in love with Aadhya(Rashmika). But the problem arises when Aadhya reveals to Chiru that she wants to be single all her life due to her mother’s wish. How will Chiru change the minds of Aadhya and her mom is the story.
After a long time, we get to see Sharwa in a very fun role and he is damn good. He has reduced his weight and looks charming for his role. He stands out and has most of the film in his way with a fun performance. But Rashmika is subdued in her role and does not have a proper character graph. Why she is not interested in marriage and her issues with her mother are not established nicely. That is the reason, her role looks disappointing.
Radhika was a mere puppet in the film and was like a costly padding artist. But Khushboo is so nice in her role and brings some sense to the proceedings with her performance. Vennela Kishore was hilarious.
Comedy in the first half
Lack of proper emotions
The film is started on a fun note of Sharwa getting rejected by the girls whom he sees. Though it is a simple story, director Kishore Tirumala holds our interest by introducing the issue of the hero’s marriage. The manner in which Rashmika’s track with Sharwa is brought in also looks good.
But the romantic track is not that strong. Until the end, there is no scene that showcases that Rashmika is madly in love with the hero. Upon this, too much melodrama in the interval also looks a bit odd. But DSP and his music are good and keep the audience on their toes.
The film falters in the second half and due to this, the temp falls down in no time. There is a drag in the scenes and Sharwa helping one girl in Khusboo’s office sidetracks the film. Kishore Tirumala has made sure that the emotions are not heavy and that is the reason, the conflict does not hit us hard.
The film has old-school drama but fun at regular intervals keeps the clock ticking. Story-wise, there is nothing new, romance wise there is nothing new, but still, the film has some comedy which is not enough for the film to become a hit and ends as a below-par fare.
Bottom Line – Nothing new
