LIE Movie Review
Producers: Ram Achanta, Gopichand Achanta, Anil Sunkara
Music Director: Mani Sharma
Cast: Nithiin, Megha Akash
Lying is a bad thing and many suggest that we do not do it. But Hanu Raghavapudi tried to come up with a theme that is intertwined with the lies telling by various characters and even the director ‘Lies’ here. How do you ask? Let’s see then ..
A. Satyam (Nithiin) is an unemployed 32-year-old whose mother tries to marry her to learn a little respect for life and feel responsible. But Satyam has other plans that he wants to fly to the USA. And marry a rich white girl. On the other hand, Charitra (Megha Akash) is a miser and she decides to marry to enjoy honeymoon in the United States. But her plans fail and she ends up traveling with Satyam as her proxy husband.
While this goes in another thread on the Intelligence Department looking for Master of Disguise, Padmanabham (Arjun) begins to unfold. Adhi (Srikanth), the officer strives to break the mission in the United States but has to face many obstacles. How are these two connected? You have to see the movie to know the details
Arjun Sarja as a Master of Disguise is a pleasure to see. His style, hus attitude works for the role. But the script fails. He strives to induce the meaning of the proceedings, but could not overcome the scant script and the horrible execution.
Nithiin dominates the screen and his presence on the screen in this film is a revelation. He manages to deceive the likes of veteran actors like Arjun, Nasser and his ease in the action sequences is a delight to watch on the screen. Even so, he is also underutilized by the director due to the lack of proper script.
Megha Akash is a pretty face and has body to rule young hearts. If she can also add performance to your resume she will be another good Hanu find. Nasser, Suresh, Srikanth and Ravi Kishan are completely routine in their characters.
J. Yuvaraj needs to learn how to handle reflective lighting on the screen. Although it looks nice on the pictures it irritates when exaggerated on the screen in the videos. If he had focused on the tone required for the scene, it would have helped the film better.
Mani Sharma did his best to keep the audience stuck with his BGM and songs. Although it gives its best in recent times, it is wasted in bad situations. His BGM as a standalone is awesome to listen to but not good enough to maintain a consistent tone in a very rushed movie.
MR. Sekhar, editing on this type of edge of thriller films has to have a steady pace, but the publisher can not convince us that we are seeing a good thriller. Try different concepts in the edit, but they do not work well on the screen. It mixes more and creates unnecessary confusion.
Hanu Raghavapudi he is the main culprit of his story here. He tried to make a movie that stands out from the crowd as a thriller with clever references to Mahabharata but did not synchronize with the situation as they do in his head and on paper.
I needed to run the movie better, but I lost the editing table while trying a lot of things to try to keep people guessing. In an attempt to make the script look smart, you miss the opportunity to create interesting situations with the hero and villain. After one point, both characters end up being caricatures on the screen. His track of romance also lacks conviction.
