One of the recent movies which created a sensation of sorts in Tamil is Vijay’s ‘Mersal’. Now, its Telugu version, Adirindhi has hit the screens today. Let’s see how it is.
Bhargav(Vijay) is a sincere doctor who does medication at a low cost. By his service, he also will get an award in Europe. At that time who looks like similar to Bhargav, a magician kills one of the doctors who has come for the same award ceremony. For this incident, Bhargav has arrested by cops.
Who is Bhargav? What is the reason behind these murders? All these questions unveil the story.
One of the biggest asset in this film is undoubtedly none other than Vijay. He is the biggest pillar and carries the entire film on his shoulders. His screen presence was awesome and it was a full treat for his fans especially. The film contains many mass elements which have been showcased nicely at regular intervals. One thing must say S.J. Suryah’s acting was also awesome and done a great job. Samantha episodes are quite good and elevate some comedy.
The basic story idea of the film was quite impressive and it has been showcased well on the screen. Emotions and mass elements worked well. Nithya Menon once again did an excellent job.
The first half is particularly good and the film looks rich which is shown through some good visuals.
In the flashback episode, we can see huge Tamil flavor which will irritate Telugu audience little bit. The end of the film is quite a cinematic ending. Star heroines like Samantha and Kajal have absolutely nothing to do.
Surprisingly, A R Rahman’s music was disappointing in this film. But his background score is terrific and elevates the heroism to another level. Telugu dubbing is neat and so were the dialogues. The cinematography is excellent.Production values are top notch and Vijay was showcased in style on the screen.
Coming to the director Atlee, he has done a good job with the film. Even though he is very young, he handled an intense subject in an impressive way.
Adirindhi is an intense mass masala entertainer, It was Vijay’s one-man show. Vijay and Suryah totally steal the show. Director Atlee Kumar took an intense subject and showcased it very well on the screen.
