Chunia who assisted Nagarjuna and Raghavendra Rao in the past has made his directional debut with the movie Padesave. Karthik Raju, Nithya Shetty, Sam has acted as leads in this triangular love story. Let us see how this film is…
Karthik (Karthik), Niharika (Nithya Shetty)are best friends who lives in his neighbourhood. Niharika falls in love with Karthik but he doesn’t. At this time, Swathi (Sam) enters into scene. Karthik eventually falls for her. How this triangular love story shapes up and ends forms the rest of story.
Karthik has done a decent performance with his role. He has a long way to go and can improve in the run. Nithya Shetty is energetic and suited her role. She has done justice. Zahida Sam looks beautiful and has done decent in emotional scenes. Raashi, Naresh, Anitha Chowdary did justice to their roles.
Cinematography by Kanna is top notch. He made sure every visual is top notch. Music by Anoop Rubens is superb. Re recording is good and elevated feel to required level. Art work is nice. Editing could have been a lot better. Dialogues are okay.
Direction by Chunia is average. She did decent job but lack of correct substance made that direction is just average. Production values are good and every rupee spent can be seen onscreen.
Padesave is youthful romantic entertainer which is made on a triangular love story concept. There is less entertainment in this movie. Lack of proper story also played spoil sport. Overall, Padesave is one film which is targetted at youth. How family audiences will receive have to be seen.
