Examine solid: Nithiin, Rakul Preet, Priya Prakash Varrier, Sai Chand
Examine director: Chandra Sekhar Yeleti
Director Chandra Sekhar Yeleti has at all times been open to experimentation, tackling topics which might be forward of their time, and his new launch Examine is not any totally different.
With Nithiin, Rakul Preet, Priya Prakash Varrier, and Sai Chand within the main roles, Examine narrates the story of a conman Adithya (Nithiin) who’s convicted and sentenced to dying for his involvement in a terror assault. He, nevertheless, claims to be harmless. He finds redemption in chess contained in the jail. Regardless of his many makes an attempt to show his innocence, all of it involves nought plenty of instances. How future performs hide-and-seek with Adithya kinds the crux of the story.
Examine revolves round two subplots – whereas one runs alongside the traces of the cult hit The Shawshank Redemption, the opposite focuses on how Adithya turns into a chess grandmaster. Characters such because the lawyer Manasa (Rakul Preet Singh), Guruji (Sai Chand), and Yathra (Priya Prakash Varrier) add heft to those twin tales.

Priya Prakash additionally packs a punch however her character is proscribed in scope.
For Nithiin, Examine is a welcome change from his routine masala dramas. He delivers a constant efficiency as a person who’s intent to struggle his imprisonment. If the movie mints cash on the field workplace, it can give Nithiin a chance to have a look at attention-grabbing content material. Nonetheless, he ought to be cautious that the content material he makes ought to be unique.
As a result of Chandra Sekhar Yeleti’s concept of Examine appears novel, however by the tip of the film, it offers you an impression that you’re watching the desi model of The Shawshank Redemption. And, it will be a bummer for the city moviegoers. It additionally fails within the background music division as Kalyani Malik’s music fails to rise to the calls for of the screenplay.
On the entire, Examine is simply common fare.
