Director Atlee Kumar's movie Adirindi (Adirindhi/Adhirindhi) starring Vijay, Samantha, Nithya Menon and Kajal Aggarwal has finally hit the screens and receiving good reviews from the audience.
Adirindi is the dubbed version of Tamil movie Mersal, which has become a blockbuster success of 2017. In a bid to cash in the popularity in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, the makers had planned to release in the theatres on 18 October along with its version. But the movie was postponed by three weeks due to the delay in its censorship. Finally, the movie has been released in over 300 screens across the Telugu states.
Adirindi's story: It is an action thriller movie, which revolves around the story of estranged brothers. Maaran (Vijay) is a sincere doctor and fights against corruption. Vettri (Vijay) is a magician. They are estranged brothers and set out to take revenge upon Daniel, who killed their parents. How they avenge their parents' murder forms the crux of the story.
Analysis: The audiences say that Adirindi has nothing great to boast about its story, as it deals with a routine revenge drama. But Atlee's engaging and entertaining screenplay makes it an interesting watch. The movie may not have anything fresh to offer, but there is no single dull moment.
Performance: Ilayathalapathy Vijay has played a triple role and has done justice. His performance is the highlight of Adirindi. Nithya Menon has good scope for acting and has nailed it. Samantha, SJ Surya, Kajal Aggarwal, Vadivelu and Sathyaraj have also aced their roles well, say the viewers.
Technical: Adirindi has rich production values. AR Rahman's songs and background score, GK Vishnu's cinematography, choreography of action and dance and dialogues are the attractions on the technical front, say the filmgoers.
Adirindi audience review - live update: Here are some viewers verdict on the film shared on Twitter.
Jalapathy Gudelli @JalapathyG
#Adirindhi A well-packaged masala revenge drama that 'addresses an important topic'. Vijay is in terrific form here. First half is absolutely gripping. Highlight: pre-interval sequences. But the longish 'Dalapathy episode' is tiresome. #Adirindhi: Samantha and Kajal Aggarwal are lucky to get full remuneration for their 'guest roles'.

Suuuuuuper First half..... Showed the reality of Private hospitals, Doctors and how they LOOT public by saying fake injuries and Health in the name Of Medical checkup. Pre Interval 20mins are awesome #Adirindhi #Mersal First half - 4/5 There are some 4-5 Long Episodes/Moments which will engage you. Superbly executed with Hard hitting Emotional connect. One of the Best made films this year. No wonder it's doing HUGE in Tamil Nadu. One man show #VijayThalapathi #Adirindhi #Mersal

#Adrindhi Our Opinion FIRST HALF : Started very well with a doctor role by #vijay . Magician scenes are good. #kajal added glamour on screens. as usual #samantha also added glamour and added smiles on faces with thammudu epsiode. #Atlee mark emotional scenes are good. Second half : flash back of dhalapathy with nitya menon presence. Emotional scenes with a backdrop of indian medical negligence. marana mass scenes are good. Atlee managed very well but a little slow in second half. Highlights: vijay presence, crazy interval bang, atlee taking in emotional scenes, arr music & bgm's, perfect climax speech. Final verdict : a perfect commercial film with social message :-)
