Director Vi Anand's Telugu movie Ekkadiki Pothavu (Potavu) Chinnavada (EPC) starring Nikhil Siddharth, Nandita Swetha and Hebah Patel has received positive reviews from the audience.
Ekkadiki Pothavu Chinnavada is a romantic thriller about a female spirit which tries to reunite with her lover. Vi Anand has written the story and screenplay for the movie which is produced by PV Rao under the banner of Meghana Arts. The film has music by Sekhar Chandra, cinematography by Sai Sriram and editing by Chota K Prasad.
Ekkadiki Pothavu Chinnavada revolves around Arjun (Nikhil Siddharth), who comes from Kerala to get psychological treatment for his friend (Vennela Kishore). He falls in love with Amala (Hebah Patel), who is a Telugu girl staying in Kerala. Later, he realizes that Amala is not a human but a spirit who has taken over Nitya's body. What happens next forms the crux of the story.
The audience says that Ekkadiki Pothavu Chinnavada has a good script but starts on a sluggish note. But after 10 minutes, every moment of the film is thrilling and the first half is high on entertainment quotient. The second half is good but the climax is sluggish and some scenes are over the top.
Nikhil Siddharth, Nandita Swetha, Hebah Patel and Vennela Kishore have delivered good performances and this is the highlight of Ekkadiki Pothavu Chinnavada. The movie's production values, music and picturisation are the attractions on the technical front, says the audience.
