“Veedevadu” is one of 6 films released on 15th September 2017. The film is a bilingual Tamil / Telugu film. This is a romantic crime thriller and does not have very high expectations riding on it. Nevertheless, Let us see how it fares.
Sathya a Kabaddi player by profession falls madly in love with Shruthi (Eesha Guptha). After some courtship the duo ties the knot. In a rather shocking twist in the tale Sathya kills his wife on the wedding night itself. What made him do that; was it indeed he who killed the lady; is there some flashback to the gory incident. These are the questions that the film grapples with.Analysis:
The director chose a fairly good subject but failed in executing it properly. The narration just meanders dragging the audiences into ennui. For a crime thriller the narration has to be gripping with the audiences constantly on the edge of their seats. They have to be constantly kept asking the question “what’s next?” But with “Veedevadu” the audiences are more likely to ask “when does this drudgery end?” The film is good only in parts.
The last ten minutes are the only moments properly handled. The first half is about the hero and heroine’s courtship. It is the more tolerable of the two halves. The second half has nothing to engage the audiences except the last ten minutes when the real suspense is revealed. A couple of songs were well shot.
Performance of the Stars:
The hero Sachin’s performance was only above average in the role of a slightly imbalanced person. Eesha Gupta is more beautiful than a good actress. The only actor who really impressed whenever he came on screen was Kishore in the role of a policeman, carrying himself off with great intensity. Others in the star cast were only tolerable.
Cinematography and editing are good. Music by SS Thaman was very good with 3 out of the 5 songs impressing the audiences. The biggest drawback was perhaps the director himself. He had a fairly good concept to put on celluloid but failed to do so. He had a good team but could not capitalise on them.
The Final Word:
“Veedevadu” a crime thriller with little to thrill the audiences
