“Aha” video is fixed to provide distinctive movies amid lockdown. “Ardha Shatabdham” is the newest film that premieres on this OTT platform.

Let’s analyze.

The theme of caste violence or honor killings has just lately flip into an on a regular basis improvement in Telugu cinema. Directed by newcomer Rawindra Pulle, “Ardha Sathabdham” delves into the caste system in Telangana.

Set in Siricilla in 2003, the film begins as a romantic story. Krishna (Karthik Ratham) is in love with Pushpa (Krishna Priya), who’s the daughter of former Maoist chief Ramanna (Sai Kumar). Krishna has been in love alongside together with her since their faculty days nevertheless she doesn’t reciprocate the similar. It’s one-way love.

Krishna is from the weaving group nevertheless runs a tent house. The story takes a doomy flip when Krishna assumes that the village’s Sarpanch’s son gave her a flower from a plant that he has been planning to recommend to her with.

Krishna and his buddies beat the Sarpanch’s son. The already simmering heat between the Sarpanch and his rival Veeranna turns violent due to this incident, and caste violence ensues.

At first, director Rawindra’s ideas are obscure. Is the film truly regarding the caste state of affairs or authorized pointers or constitutional ideas? Throughout the title of caste, two factions unleash massacre, killings happen throughout the daylight within the precept streets, nevertheless an S.I and two constables wait open air the village prepared for orders from the following police officer as to what movement must be taken? Have the director and producers not given a thought to how unrealistic this seems?

Amid carnage throughout the Sircilla village, a girl, unrelated to the caste violence incidents, kills her lover as he lusted her sister and drags him onto the roads. Not even a single creature uncover or reply? How can we take such scenes severely? Is Sircilla exist in (undivided) Andhra Pradesh, or Bihar, or Africa?

Added to this, there are dialogues and swear phrases like “Mo***di” that are unwarranted. When the precept lead pair’s love story itself is silly, why would the viewers put cash into the rest of the story?

Mentioning Sircilla, a textile metropolis, as a ‘village’ is one different blunder mistake. Even after we assume the story goes down in a close-by village, villagers killing each other like factionists in 2003 is a far-fetched idea.

Moreover, the caste battle throughout the love story seems pressured and seems to have been positioned as an afterthought. The love story and the village politics are poles other than each other.

The characterization of Naveen Chandra as a trigger-happy police officer and his thread into the story is one different proof of poor scriptwriting experience. All the hype spherical his introduction scene peters out in the long term, with little relevance to the story. The bookish dialogues between Ajay and Subhalekha Sudhakar are further proof that the director has didn’t translate irrespective of lofty ideas he has in ideas onto the show display screen.

With out a phrase, the execution is clumsy and the narration is completely boring.

There is no such thing as a such factor as a chemistry between the lead pair. The romantic monitor is confirmed principally as dream songs. Karthik Ratnam of ‘C/o Kancherapalem’ as a result of the youthful villager in love has carried out a neat job. Krishna Priya is okay. Sai Kumar and Aamani are worth mentioning amongst completely different actors.

One music is lilting. That’s it.

Whole, “Ardha Sathabdam” is one different OTT film that’s instructed clumsily with unformed ideas. It joins the guidelines of newest boring movies that hit the OTT space.
