Promising young hero, Nikhil is back with yet another interesting project Ekkadiki Potavu Chinnavada. The horror comedy film garnered good buzz following the launch of trailer and raised expectations in the film circles, amidst the currency ban and lets see whether it lives up to the expectations or not.
Story: Arjun(Nikhil) who works as a visual effect supervisor, will go on a visit to Kerela for treatment of his friend’s(Vennela Kishore) psychological disorder. There he meets Nithya(Hebah Patel) and falls in love with her. After the treatment is done, Nikhil comes back to Hyderabad where he realizes that Amala isn’t a human rather a spirit.
There comes the twist when Arjun recognize that Hebah is also possessed and someone inside her body is making her do all these things. Things become ever worst for Arjun when yet another character called Amala(Nanditha Swetha) approaches him as the one who is behind all this.
The main theme of the story is about the love between the human and the spirit. How does everything settles down? What are the difficulties and hilarious sequences between them is the rest of the story.
Nikhil is a big asset for this movie and he excelled through out the film with his subtle performance. Heebah Patel who was confined to glamour in her earlier movies has given a decent performance this time. Nanditha Swetha impressed with her role. vennela Kishore was good as usual with his comedy timing.
Few lagging scenes that slows down narration
The production values of the film are excellent and the visuals looked great. The art department should be credited for doing a good job as the priests and their set up is shown quite well. Music by Shekhar Chanda is decent, and his background score is impressive.
