Nani’s production ‘Awe’ arrived in theatres finally amidst huge expectations and curiosity. The movie has several well known actors and actresses which increased the buzz even more. As said by the team, its definitely an out of box.
Kajal Agarwal played the central character who appeared just like flashes in the movie. She performed well in this short and tragic character. Regina has got a good role and has more prominance. Her looks and performance are apt and good. Nithya Menen and Eesha Rebba played different roles and are OK. Murali Sharma’s and Priyadarshi’s episodes provided some comic relief and they did their jobs well. Along with these, Nani’s voice over to fish and Ravi Teja’s voice over to the tree are good and funny. Others are Okay.
Technically, this is a brilliant movie. Though the entire movie takes place in a single location, different thread of stories are well managed within itself. Production Values are good. Art direction is excellent. Music by Mark K Robin is good and enhanced the movie. There is only one song in the movie and its very good. Camera work is excellent and is the major highlight of the movie. Editing is decent. Director Prasanth should be applauded for the out of the box script chosen. The story narration is in episodes. He narrated the story in multi layers with multiple genres. The intention of presenting new kind of movie is good but it does not have not much emotional connect and lacked engagement. The proceeding gets bore at parts and feels artificial at times. But then again the climax connects all the points and shocks the audience a bit.
Overall, AWE is completely out of box movie with technical brilliance but may not cater to everyone.
Low on emotional connect
Rating : 3/5
