Now that's a perfect comedy thriller!!

Nikhil is always known for his kinda different, concept oriented movies, right from the first look poster this movie grabbed attention!! But after watching the (Release Trailer) I thought its a routine Prema katha chitram (2013) kinda movie. To my surprise, the movie scenes start engaging from 15mins before first half!! There enters the important character and soul of this movie!!Nanditha Swetha is to watch-out for. Her act as a woman possessed by a love-struck spirit was appreciable. She managed to find the balance between "crazy-in- love" and "crazy-because-I'm-possessed" quite well. I don't wanna reveal anything here! The twists here are expected but executed in a different way!!Adding a few one-liners that refer to the DEMONETIZATION was a nice last-minute touch to keep up with the audience's current mood. Totally this movie worth your time! Director Vi Anand seems to have found a way of convincingly presenting the unusual genre of a romantic thriller. An engaging thriller and an enthralling story – Ekkadiki Pothavu Chinnavada is an honest narrative delivered well.

Ekkadiki Pothaavu Chinnavaada is a one time watch with interesting plot line,hilarious comedy and decent performances but irritating first half and climax dragged a lot.

Ekkadiki Pothaavu Chinnavaada (2016): Nikhil has established himself as an unique hero with unique concepts.He scored hat-rick hits with Swamy Rara,Karthikeya and Surya vs Surya where all the three are unique in their own way.But when he tried a regular movie like Shankarabharanam,it gave him a disaster.So he returned to his original route and made Ekkadiki Pothavu Chinnavada,a romantic horror comedy.Its promos are interesting which helped in creating a buzz on this movie.So how is the movie?Did it reach the expectations?

Plot: Arjun(Nikhil) is a visual effect supervisor with a bad love failure. One fine day, he takes his friend(Vennela Kishore) for treatment as the latter is possessed by an evil spirit. There he meets Amala(Hebah Patel) and falls in love with her.While searching for her,he finds a shocking news that Amala has killed in an accident 2 years ago.Shocked he returns to his normal life but he finds Nitya(Hebah Patel) who has no idea about Kerala tour.Buts suddenly an unknown girl (Nandita Swetha) reaches Arjun claiming that she is Amala..Who is Amala?Why is Nitya acting strange and who is the new girl in Arjun's life forms rest of the story

Plus Points:

1)Plot: Ekkadiki Pothavu Chinnavaada has an interesting plot line.Even though it becomes predictable at the end,still its a entertaining subject.

2)Second half: Well not the entire second half but till the flashback episode,Ekkadiki Pothavu Chinnavada is highly entertaining.It has brilliant comedy in second half.Satya,Vennela Kishore has scored big with brilliant comic timing.The scenes with Nanditha Swetha are thrilling.

3)Interval twist: It was carried very well and surely raises the expectations on second half

4)Comedy Movie is hilarious in second half. Vennela Kishore provides some good laughs. Sathya also have come up with best comedy act.

5)Performances: Nanditha Swetha is really a saving grace of the movie.Though she may not have the charm but she suited well for her role of Amala.Her eyes and expressions are really haunting.Nikhil once again gave decent performance.Vennela Kishore and Satya scored big.

Minus Points:

1)First half: Except Interval Twist,entire first half is so boring.Love track between Nikhil and Hebah is so dragging and irritates us.Even Hebah Patel acting is so bad.

2)Flashback in Second half: It seem too stretched beyond a point. It should have been ended much earlier.

3)Songs: Songs do not strike a chord but BGM is decent.

So,Ekkadiki Pothaavu Chinnavaada is a decent one time watch with interesting plot line,hilarious comedy and decent performances but irritating first half and climax sequences are dragged a lot.

My rating 6.5/10

Surprisingly good movie

Well this is a decent movie with comedy, and a surprising love story with little suspense in it. I felt intentionally the plot was built up just to continue with the movie, which was an unnecessary intentional stretch made. Otherwise this movie is new kind of thing in Telugu cinema. Vennela kishore comedy is highlight along with few other comedians. Nikhil failed to make emotional connect due to his bad acting. Heebah Patel face was yuck. She is fit to act in porn movies alone.. she will do best in that department
