‘Awe!’ raised curiosity right from the posters and names like Kajal, Nithya Menon, Regina, Priyadarshi getting involved in this film took the expectations to next level. Produced by Nani, ‘Awe!’ is a never before film in Tollywood by Prasanth Varma. The film is hitting screens today and let us see how it is.
Well! You cannot reveal the story as it may spoil the film’s experience. All we can say is that it revolves around the characters of a women, a magician, a chef, a drug addict, a time traveller and a couple.
Not a particular actor but everyone did justice to their character and credit should go to the entire cast for accepting such an out of the box concept. Kajal and Regina were very good in their roles. Nitya Menon played an unconventional role. Other actors like Eesha Rebba, Murali Sharma, Priyadarshi and others were amazing. Voice over from Nani and Ravi Teja is hilarious with nice message given. They both tickle your funny bones at places.
Cinematography by Karthik Ghattamaneni is brilliant as the visuals looked quite stylish and reflected the film’s mood. Editing by Goutham Nerusu deserves a special mention as it is the key for films of this type. Editing is quite crisp and flow is maintained throughout.
Music by Mark K Robin is quite new and elevated the film at crucial points. Production values are top notch and ‘Wall Poster Cinema’ banner must be appreciated for bringing this concept onscreen.
Debutant director Prasanth Varma must be commended first for thinking this way and being able to convince everyone with a script that sounds very weird on paper. He extracted good performances from his cast and best from his technical team. His narration is good though slow at times. The way he handled the climax is very good. He is sure to make a mark of his own with ‘Awe!’.
The film reminds you of ‘Chandamama Kathalu’ and ‘Vedam’ at the beginning where different stories are told randomly and brought together at climax. But, after sometime, the film gets into its own path.
The first half mainly deals with introduction of characters and building mood for interval block. The film has many twists and it needs carful viewing to understand them. The second half is a bit slow compared to the first half and makes you clueless till the climax. But, the climax leaves you ‘Awe’struck and this is where the brilliance of director comes out.
The film gives away many social messages on nature, girl child abuse, about LGBT community and many others. If audience cannot get the climax then the film looks like a complete mess. This film may have a very limited appeal as you cannot expect anything commercial from this film.
‘Awe!’ is a different attempt which is never seen before in Tollywood. It is sure to enthral people who has a liking for out of the box films. The film stays true to its promos and gives you a unique experience. Try giving a shot for this flick.
