Kalyan (Aadhi Pinishetty) is a blind chef, who feels that his self-esteem and determination is much stronger than his medical condition. His childhood friend, Anu (Ritika Singh) defends Kalyan and has a special place for him in his heart, but Kalyan does not share those feelings.
One fine day, Kalyan meets Pallavi (Tapsee Pannu) and falls in love with her after seeing her kind nature. Even Pallavi develops a fondness for Kalyan, who agrees to get her out of a big financial problem. Just when everything seems to be going well, Kalyan suffers a minor accident and doctors discover that he can recover his vision after surgery.
As soon as Kalyan regains consciousness, he learns that Pallavi has disappeared. Can Kalyan trace Pallavi? And what is the real twist behind this story? The answers to these questions form the main plot of the film.
Aadhi Pinishetty proved that he is a worthy actor a few times in the past and lives up to his label once more also in Neevevaro. Aadi managed to show a good variation between the two phases of his role making the process seem quite convincing.
Tapsee Pannu has a meaty role and comes up with a very good performance in the film. Ritika Singh looks good on the screen and does justice to her role. The other support cast did their part well. Some sequences in the second half have gone well.
The comedy song that features Vennela Kishore tickles funny bones, since the comedian offers ample entertainment with his witty phrases and peculiar expressions that are good.
Neevevaro is one of those movies that needed to keep viewers glued to the screen from the start. However, the irregular script in the first half postpones the spectators. The introductory part seems to have been dragged unnecessarily and this damages the tempo.
One can expect an intense second half that runs in a follow-up to the concept of heroin, but the movie takes a slightly different path. Action lovers may feel distracted as the comedy overcomes the original plot of the film.
Once the point of conflict is revealed, the climax is nothing more than a weak and predictable revenge drama that runs on a thin wafer-like web. The writer should have increased the unpredictability factor to offer a new experience to the viewers.
