Nithin has played a safe game as he has remade the Hindi hit Andha Dhun. The film is streaming now and, read our review to find out if the film has any juice in it or not.
The film is about Arun(Nithin) who is a blind man. One fine day, he is called to an apartment to perform live for a couple played by Naresh and Tamannah. But when Arun lands there, Naresh gets killed by Tamannah and hell breaks out to lose. Tamannah now decides to kill Arun and goes after him. How will Arun escape this situation forms the story of Maestro?
For some reason, Nithin looks a bit lost in his role. He does an impressive job as a blind man and holds the scene well until the first half. The show belongs to Tamannah here and she is a treat to watch as Simran. The milky beauty rocks the negative role in the style and her glamor and sultry body language only enhance her key role.
Nabha Natesh is just for the sake of it. Harshvardhan, Mangli, and Racha Ravi get very good roles and they enact so well. Jisshu Sen Gupta is a dummy in the film. Sreemukhi is also neat in her small role.
The film is a remake of Andha Dhun and has been made in a safe way we can say. The story is not altered much except for the climax and other small areas. The film has a premise and is ably set in Goa.
The way Nithin’s story is weaved into the narrative is also good. But the moment Tamannah arrives things change and whenever she is on screen, the interest factor keeps ticking. But the film is not devoid of faults.
Nithin for some reason looks a bit clueless. His role has not been etched properly and that is the reason, the film’s curve drops a bit. In tense scenes also, he does not panic and this is where the director Merlapaka Gandhi should have raised the screenplay.
But having said that the film has enough twists and good BGM to keep the audience engaged. Comparison is inevitable from the original and if you lower the expectations and watch, you will have a good time.
Bottom Line – Tamannah steals the show
