Check is a Telugu movie starring Nithiin, Rakul Preet Singh, and Priya Prakash Varrier in prominent roles. It is a drama directed by Chandra Sekhar Yeleti with V. Anand Prasad as a producer, forming part of the crew. The film released today. Check out the review here.

Story:

Adithya falls in love with a girl (Priya Prakash Varrier) but she cheats on him and eventually, he falls into a trap and gets arrested in a case related to terrorism. In the due course of time, the court appoints a lawyer (Rakul Preet Singh) to help him for proving his innocence. How did Aditya prove his innocence? What did he do to come out of the case? What happened in the end? Forms the film's story.

Performances:

Nithiin is definitely the show stealer for this movie. The actor has delivered his career-best performance in the movie and gave his 100% playing the role. Be it the action sequences or emotional scenes, Nithiin has delivered his best performance. Rakul Preet Singh is also one of the biggest plus points for this movie. The actress has carried her role with ease and elegance. Priya Prakash Varrier will definitely impress the audience with her performance. Especially her scenes with the Nithiin came out really well. Sampath Raj's energetic performance added more strength to the movie. Sai Chand also blended well with the character. Posani Krishna Murali and others are good in their characters.

Technical Aspects:

Production values by V. Anand Prasad under Bhavya Creations are rich. Music by Kalyani Malik is average. Keeping the songs aside, his BGM elevated all the scenes well. Cinematographer Rahul Shrivatsav impressed with his camera angles and bright visuals. Editing by Sanal Anirudhan is okay. Technically, the film is okay.

Verdict:

Director Chandra Sekhar Yeleti failed to impress the audience with his pace of narration, especially in the second half. The way the director has handled the story delivered is unimpressive. Director Yeleti has failed in succeeding to engage the audience throughout the film. Check struggles in between the drama and crime angle. Neither of the two has been explored properly. The director has a very good and engaging storyline on hand but it did not get translated well onto the big screen. Else, it would have been completely different. The performances are good and Nithiin appeared in a different character, compared to what he played before. On the whole, Check is disappointing!
