Check forged: Nithiin, Rakul Preet, Priya Prakash Varrier, Sai Chand
Check director: Chandra Sekhar Yeleti
Director Chandra Sekhar Yeleti has all the time been open to experimentation, tackling topics which can be forward of their time, and his new launch Check is no totally different.
With Nithiin, Rakul Preet, Priya Prakash Varrier, and Sai Chand within the main roles, Check narrates the story of a conman Adithya (Nithiin) who is convicted and sentenced to dying for his involvement in a terror assault. He, nonetheless, claims to be harmless. He finds redemption in chess contained in the jail. Despite his many makes an attempt to show his innocence, all of it involves nought quite a few occasions. How future performs hide-and-seek with Adithya varieties the crux of the story.
Check 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. Sai Chand wins most plaudits for his efficiency whereas Rakul Preet eschews make-up to play a lady intent on her job. Priya Prakash additionally packs a punch however her character is restricted in scope.
For Nithiin, Check is a welcome change from his routine masala dramas. He delivers a constant efficiency as a person who is intent to struggle his imprisonment. If the movie mints cash on the field workplace, it can give Nithiin a chance to take a look at attention-grabbing content material. However, he must be cautious that the content material he makes must be unique.
Because Chandra Sekhar Yeleti’s concept of Check appears novel, however by the top of the movie, it offers you an impression that you’re watching the desi model of The Shawshank Redemption. And, it is going to 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, Check is just average fare.
