Keshava Movie Review!

Keshava Movie Review!

Director : Sudheer Varma
Producer : Abhishek Nama
Music Director : Sunny M.R

Casting : Nikhil, Ritu varma, Isha Koppikar
Sudheer Varma did try to improve on his previous film but he got carried away with visual style over content. Nikhil Siddhartha once again tried to fit in a new character with aplomb perfection. Let's delve into the details...

Story:
On a lonely night, a family of four start travelling back to their home from some unknown place. Suddenly, a SUV hits their car and the entire family is reeling with the aftershock of the accident. Rather than helping them the car flees from the scene. Young boy from the family, survives the accident and he decides to avenge those who are behind. Young boy is Keshava Sharma (Nikhil Siddhartha) and he kills a man during the night. The man is none other than SI of Anaparthi.
Keshava is a law student and looks after his elder sister who survived the accident with disabilities. He meets his childhood friend, Satyabhama (Ritu Varma) in the college but avoids contacting her. She starts suspecting him and he kills another police officer. A special officer Sharmila Mishra (Isha Kopikkar) is appointed to investigate the murders and motives behind them. What is the connection between the police officials and Keshava? Will he be caught before completing his mission? Watch it on screen to know the answers ..

Performances:
Nikhil Siddhartha makes a decent effort to portray the character of the protagonist. He doesn't laugh in the movie and his seriousness emulates the inner struggle of his character. Even though he tried to pull the character to perfection he failed to completely utilise the scope he had for the character. The character needs him to be cool and calculated but that doesn't mean he needs to be plastic. At times, he does fall prey for trying to not show any emotion. There is a difference in being cool on screen and plastic. We can still say he tried his best to fit in and that is appreciable.
Ritu Varma after Pelli Choopulu got a good character but she doesn't have much to perform. Even the actress doesn't try to bring her own charisma to the character. Isha Kopikkar after 18 years looked fresh on screen and she suited the character. But the story after a point doesn't give her much scope to perform. Many other actors like Brahmaji, Ajay, Rao Ramesh, Jeeva, Priyadarshi are used to fill up the runtime.
Vennela Kishore does get some good moments but his comedy is not at that level that you have to watch it on screen for sure.

Technicalities:
Movie's strength lies in its technical brilliance. The visuals try to tell the story but with lacklustre content the movie doesn't hold interest after the initial chapter. Sudheer Varma tried to induce many new elements into the script but he missed the target in emotionally investing audience. He tried hard to get the base right but fails to hold it through the movie cohesively.
After trying to start it innovatively he slides down the lane of predictability and one feels he should have invested more on emotions. In a revenge drama, one needs to feel a connection with the main character. Somehow director chose to leave the character's graph asunilateral as possible and tried to focus more and more on his revenge schemes. That dilutes the interest of an audience member and Sudheer Varma should have considered on concentrating more on story than style.
Cinematography by Divakar Mani did a really great job. His shots try to give a tonality to the movie and creates interest on the proceedings. But at times, he tries too hard to encapsulate everything that the director wanted to tell through visuals and they look too clumsy. SR Shekhar's editing could have been better has the movie fails to improve on pacing in the second hour.
Music by Sunny MR doesn't impress much but background score by Prashanth Pillai is one of the highlights of the movie. He does recreate many scores from Korean dramas but they sync with the proceedings very well.
