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.
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.
TeluguOne Perspective :
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.
