Varun (Nitin) is a hippie living in Spain and doesn’t believe in relationships. He comes across Hayati (Adah Sharma), daughter of Devan, a powerful cop. Hayati who is from India comes to Spain for helping her friend Priya (Kesha Khambati). Varun woos Hayati for a kiss but doesn’t love her and the latter who initially hates him falls in love with Varun eventually. Varun and Hayati decide to meet up for one last time after few instances. Does Hayati wins Varun’s love and will the latter change his view on relationship forms the rest.
Nithin’s performance is impressive. He opted for a new look and he carried off it with style. He is good in romantic and emotional scenes.
Adah Sharma has performed well and she looked good at times. She is at ease in dialogue delivery and expressions.
Ajaz Khan is impressive, Brahmanandam is okay, Ali is wasted in a poor role, Prakash Raj’s cameo is good.
Amol Rathod’s cinematography is on top-notch while Anup Rubens musical scores are good and the background score is impressive. Puri Jagannadh scores in dialogues than the direction, Screenplay is predictable, Editing is neat. Production Values of Puri Jagannadh Touring Talkies are rich.
Heart Attack takes off well with strong and quirky hero characterization and the scenes of hero falling for heroine, initial action scenes are all well-shot. Romantic love stories need the proper plot and the tight screenplay with right mix of entertainment. But this is where Heart Attack fails. Though the first half is passable with few refreshing scenes and Brahamanandam’s comedy here and there, the second half leaves you to boredom. The intensity or the feel in the love story is purely missing and there are as many as four songs in the first half and the placement could’ve been better. Neither the comedy is engaging except for few Brahmanandam scenes. Heart Attack has few interesting moments here and there but not upto the expectations.
Pretty Ordinary Time-Pass Flick…
