adhineta Suri (Jagapati Babu) is an unemployed youth in a small town. His parents are worried because the girls refuse to marry him because he is unemployed and did not complete his graduation. They approach the local honest leader Sreeramulu (Paruchuri Gopala Krishna) who recommend him for the job of chief minister’s personal secretary. As a secretary of CM, he takes up several issues and answers them. In the process, he realizes that the CM is crooked. CM gets Sreeramulu killed in an accident. Suri contests as an independent from Sreeramulu constituency and wins with a huge margin. He accumulates a group of 25 such independents. The results suggest a hung assembly. Suri offers to support whichever party that makes him the chief minister. The CM under which he works as a secretary offers to make him CM. The rest of the story is all about how Suri brings change with the power bestowed on him.

Artists Performance

adhineta Jagapati Babu is pretty good in the role of Suri. His histrionics in temple song are good. However, he should have stressed more on his dialogue delivery (for example he said Abrudhi instead of Abhivrudhi three times in this movie). Shraddha Das is adequate as female lead. Hamsa Nandini played the role of a cop who seduces her preys by exposing. Neelima (granddaughter of V Madhusudhana Rao) did a small role. Paruchuri Gopala Krishna whose body language suits more of negative and crooked roles (Prati Dhwani, Naga and Sasirekha Parinayam) did the role of an honest political leader in Adhineta. Uttej got a good role. Siva Parvathi did a pivotal role in this movie. Ahuti Prasad, Anant Raj, Annapurna, Chalapati Rao, Krishna Bhagawan etc are ok.

Technical departments

adhinetaStory - screenplay - direction: The story of the movie has good potential. It is about a common man becoming a CM. But the treatment and execution leaves a lot to be desired. Direction of the movie is too simplified and mass oriented by leaving the sensibilities aside. There are many scenes in the movie that are inspired by innumerable movies like

1. Oke Okkadu: Working style of CM
2. Tagore: Unearthing the hospital scam
3. Hallabol: Hero urinating in the house of the villain
4. Karnataka elections: Yediyurappa becoming CM of Karnataka with a small segment of MLAs due to hung assembly.

Other departments: Music of the movie is alright and most of the tunes are inspired ones. Cinematography is mediocre as the movie was shot at a brisk pace. Dialogues by Paruchuri brothers are adequate.

adhinetaPolitical twist: This film has resemblance to three political forces of AP – Congress, TDP and PRP. The CM in this movie is expected to be modeled after YSR (with election symbol being folding arms). The opposition leader is modeled after Nara Chandra Babu naidu. Jagapati Babu’s character is modeled after Chiranjeevi with taglines of the change and social justice. The get-ups of these three actors Ahuti Prasad (white panche kattu and three colored flags), Raghunadha Reddy (khaddar pant and shirt and yellow flag) and Jagapati Babu (while shirt and white flag with green bottom strip) have close resemblance to YSR, Chandra Babu Naidu and Chiranjeevi respectively. There are severe criticisms on Congress and is mild criticism on TDP.

adhinetaAnalysis: Adhineta is a political film that has good value in the basic premise, but gone wrong due to placid execution and too much of simplification. The director tried to get inspired by other movies in terms of taking and scenes than depending on his own strength. Agreed that movies are not supposed to be logical. People ignore logics if the narration is gripping. Other wise, all these illogical scenes appear too big to ignore. This film has some potential to do well in B and C centers. On a whole, Adhineta disappoints.
