24 Kisses Movie Review

Release date : November 23, 2018
Starring : Hebah patel, Adith Arun, Rao Ramesh, Naresh
Director : Ayodhya Kumar Krishnamsetty
Producers : Sanjay Reddy
Music Director : Joi Barua

The makers of 24 Kisses have promoted the film on a very clever note and created a decent enough buzz for this film which has hit the screens today. Let’s see how this film turns out to be.

Story :


Anand(Adith Arun) is a children’s film maker who is not interested in the institution of marriage. He has a lot of affairs and hits it off on the same level with Sri Lakshmi(Hebah Patel)as well. But to his bad luck, Sri Lakshmi falls in love with him. Upon learning his ideology, she breaks up with him. Rest of the story is as to how Anand changes his thought process and wins his love back.

Performances:

Adith Arun who resembles actor Ram a lot is a decent actor. He suits the character of a struggling filmmaker and a romantic. Hebah Patel is alright. She couldn't emote well but does her bit without any reservations. Rao Ramesh goes overboard as the psychiatrist. Naresh keeps it simple and does a neat job. Aditi Myakal is the only notable actor among remaining star cast.

Plus Points:

Nothing

Minus Points:


Almost Everything

Technical Aspects:

The production values of the film are decent enough and the cameraman has showcased the film on a good note. Music is below par but the background score was neat. Dialogues were average and so was the production design. Editing is a disaster as close to half an hour of the movie could have easily chopped off.

Coming to the director Ayodhya Kumar, it is sad to see such a filmmaker attempt a film like this. He gets it completely wrong in every aspect and kills the film with his own hands. There is absolutely no sense in the proceedings as it is unclear as to what the director wanted to showcase through his narration. He does interlace the hero’s aim in life and his love story convincingly.

Verdict:

On the whole, 24 Kisses is a bland and boring romantic drama which goes wrong in every aspect. Uneven screenplay, silly concept, and lack of interest in the proceedings kill the film completely. Credit should go to the makers for creating such a buzz through the promotions about the 24 kisses which are otheriwse not impressive on screen. The story starts off with the hero meeting a psychiatrist to help him with his breakup and all those who watch the film will have to do the same as the movie has that effect on you. Just stay away from this one.
