Behind the movie Heart Attack: Maverick Puri Jagannath on row of flops is joined with back to back hits hero Nithin for this film introducing Bollywood beauty Adah Sharma as heroine. Let us see, how beautiful is this romantic Heart Attack?
In the Movie Heart Attack: Story begins with introduction to Goa mafia headed by Makrand (Ajaj) attacking a Police officer (Devan). Into next scene, story shifts to Spain where traveler and a free soul of Varun (Nithin) is introduced falling in first look love with Hayati (Adah Sharma). Playing all regular gimmicks, Hayati gets impressed by Varun who just wants a one hour long deep lip kiss from Hayati and not a long relation. In the same time, Varun is also involved in developing a rivalry with drug mafia in Spain again linked to Makrand in Goa. Helping Hayati’s friend in marrying a Negro boy friend, Hayati accepts the one hour kiss proposal forwarded by Varun but soon they depart. However, Varun quickly realizes the value of true love towards Hayati. By the time, Varun is in Romania and Hayati shifts to Goa for surgery of her ailing dad who is none other than same Police officer shown in introduction. Chasing Hayati, even Varun lands in Goa to win his love and also erase Goa mafia.
Values of the Movie Heart Attack: Puri Jagan is an impelling film maker who has strong hold on penning the punching dialogues with rapid scripting. All his past movies disclose the same and ‘Heart Attack’ is also nothing different. If Puri would have concentrated little more on screenplay and treatment, ‘Heart Attack’ would have become one more attacking film in his career. Following his regular format, Puri goes on to show the magical touch of romance with youth appealing elements in first half. All the episodes drawn between Nithin and Hayati are although old fashioned, it’s the cinematography of Amol Rathod makes them look modernized. Dialogues wise, here and there Puri thrown his spark. Editing wise SR Sekkhar’s sharpness as shown in ‘Iddarammayilatho’ was missing here. Entire second half, there was too much to trim. Comedy wise, the threads of ISCKON and Negro (black and white love) was fair to middling. Anup Ruben’s offered superb musical score and ‘Selavanuko’ song shot superbly. Production values of Puri are also worth appreciable.
Performance wise, Nithin was at complete ease. His chemistry with Adah Sharma was new and of course tried to emulate Pawan Kalyan mannerisms. Adah Sharma is not a stunning beauty at first glance. As time goes on, one will start liking her. Villainy of Ajaj Khan was half cooked. Brahmanandam as ISCKON Ramana was hilarious initially, later it became lengthy and unnecessary. Ali and Kushi looked a hot pair. Of the rest Devan, Kesha Khambati and the friends of Adah Sharma were gorgeous looking.
Out of the Movie Heart Attack: Coming to the positives, Adah Sharma is definitely a promising beauty to look forward. Hero Nithin needed a change from his regular lover boy image and ‘Heart Attack’ is good from his side. Problem with the film is, Puri could not sustain the first half interest and entertainment in second half. The very take off of second half was lethargic just like the flattery in interval block. However, screen always was colorful with bikinis and beauties of Spain, Romania, Goa. Of course, here and there Puri’s philosophical tough is sure to connect youth audience.
Overall there is nothing new from Puri’s point of view and for all those who admire Puri for his energetic taking are to remain just half satisfied. The way climax and pre-climax scenes are conceived should have remembered us the madness and wacky attitude of Puri during the times of ‘Idiot.’ He lost those sensible smartness and sharp skills in wrapping the climaxes. Commercially, we need to wait and see how far ‘Heart Attack’ will be able to join Puri’s past hit lists.
