Ajay Rao, Harshika Poonacchha, Achyuth Kumar, Neenasam Ashwath
Advaitha- Every writer is a fighter; what catches the attention is not the title but the tagline. More than a writer the protagonist is majorly seen as a fighter. Director Giriraj after directing the critically acclaimed movie Jatta, was expected to deliver a better movie than Advaitha.
The movie which has Ajay Rao and Harshika Poonacchha in lead roles falls flat in impressing the audience. The movie deals with the story of a story writer Vivek (Ajay Rao). He is said to prepare a script which has a story based on Underworld, when he goes to a producer with his piece of story. Heeding to the demand made by the producer, Vivek decides to make a story based on underworld.
For the same reason he chooses to be with a real don Harshavaradhan(Achyuth Kumar), study and observe the lifestyle of theirs, thinking that would help him build his script, unaware of the fact that it is going to change his life too. The twist in the tale is when Harshavardhan teams up with his opponent and decides to marry his daughter Ambika (Harshika) to the foe turned friend?s brother, which is very much opposed by the daughter. When the father gives a deaf ear to the daughter?s pleads, she plans for suicide and is saved by our hero. What happens next is something predictable, yet has to be watched onscreen.
We don't see the writer changing his weapon from pen to hatchet here, but in turn we see how his writing skills, get him out of the underworld. Out of his chocolate boy image, Ajay Rao manages to leave a good impact on the audience with his fighting skills. Harshika Ponnachha amazes the viewers with her glamorous looks and has shared a good on screen chemistry with Ajay. While Achyuth Kumar and Neenasam Ashwath have done justice to their roles, the background score provided by Veer Samarth seems dull and fails to strike the chord. Watch the movie if you have ample lot of time over the weekend, but the paisa vasool formula doesn?t work here.
Verdict: Slow paced movie
Time pass comedy entertainer
Average comedy entertainer
Decent rural family entertainer
Soubin Shahir and Mamta Mohandas shine in this conventional film
