    Adhurs Movie Review - Weak story mars Adhurs

    IndiaGlitz  [Wednesday, January 13, 2010]

    For those of you who like to laugh out loud and have no expectations of how a Vinayak or NTR film should be, Adurs offers good amount of entertainment.  The film's greatest strength is its comedy and it may be said that we have never seen a better comedy in any of the previous Vinayak or, for that matter, Junior film in the past.  It is clear that Adurs' writers and the director knew well beforehand that they were dealing with an average plot, involving two twins separated at birth by that favourite old lady, the bhamma in cahoots with the nurse, and the more ordinary premise of one growing up to be valorous and the other a timid one, and instill enough funniness into the proceedings.

    To begin with the story, Narasimham (NTR) works for Sayaji Shinde, the cop in-charge of cleansing the city of extortionists.  He intercepts the calls between noted extortion gangs like that of Rasool, knows who they are extracting big bucks from and jumps into action at the right moment, killing the goons in no time.  Naras gradually becomes a menace to Rasool, who plans to exterminate him.  In the meanwhile, in comes Chary (NTR again), with the promising Brahmanandam (he plays Bhattacharya), and tickles our funny bone, scene after scene.  Chary is the assistant to the priest Bhattu, who keeps himself busy conducting death, marriage ceremonies and film muhurats (one such film is Chakkara Takkuva, the remake version of Amitabh Bacchan's Cheeni Kum. Ha ha..), but his most important business is to cosy up to Chandrakala (Nayanatara), with whom he is madly in love.

    The two tracks run parallel, as Nayanatara falls for Chary and Sheela keeps flirting Naras.  The director takes care of keeping our interest levels intact by introducing Asish Vidhyarthi, who begins a search operation for Naras, the son of a retired army officer (Nasser).  Of course, Naras has already been the target of Rasool's gang.  As the interval bang draws to a close, Chary is mistaken for Naras and is taken into captive (just as in the recent Bollywood blockbuster Kaminey).  However, in no time, Asish and others catch hold of the real Narasimham.  Why has Asish been on a hunt for NTR?  How are the two brothers going to play a game with the villains, to escape from the vortex they are in?  Answers to these questions are to be found in the second half.

    Story wise, Adurs offers nothing new.  In fact, let alone the predictability factor, there is no extra effort taken by the makers to make it oomphier - say, through punchy dialogues and inventive action.  If total absence of mind-blowing lines and single liners is a low point, vintage NTR not coming alive anywhere, excpet in songs, is a disappointment to all his fans.

    The film has a high point, but just one.  It's the comedy, which is well executed and performed by Brahmanandam and the Brahmin avatar of NTR.  Our star comedian, Brahmi, rules the roost.  He is simply terrific.  NTR, as his yes-man, is new and fresh, but just not flawless.  Basha (MS Narayana)'s comedy is good too.  The fun factor slumps down in the second half, when Mahesh Manjrekar (playing a heartless villain) and Raghu Babu continue to be befuddled by comedy of confusion.

    Nayana and Sheela have nothing to do except shaking legs with NTR.  Dialogues, otherwise good in comedy scenes, are quite poor.  Had NTR repeated a thumping performance and shown some wise dialogue diction as the junior priest (watch him speaking in a whole new diction and you find him inadequate), the film would have not been a nightmare for his fans.

    Released on: 13th Jan, 2010
