Story and Direction: Varun Vamsi
Music: Jose Franklin
Varun Vamsi’s directorial Eakam was released this Friday. Presented by Boyapati Raghu, the film is jointly produced by Ananda Thoughts Film Production Company, Sanskriti Productions and Dreams Entertainments.
Varun Vamsi tried to show his mark even from the opening by expressing that Eakam is a collection of five characters. The movie story revolves around the characters of Anand, Appayya Panthulu, Divya, Nitya, David, and Nirvana.
Anand, who lost his family at a young age and his lover eventually, roams in search of something in this world without doing a job. Appayya Panthulu, who worships Lord Shiva, gets annoyed with God, accusing him of his collapse. While Divya, who lost her father, wants to build a career in life with a coffee shop.
On the other side, David is a villain and works in the same coffee shop. Nithya wants to change Anand anyway and plans to marry him. How all these stories meet at a common point and what happens in their lives is splendidly shown in the film.
Story, Characters, Music, Direction, Screenplay.
Short runtime in the first half.
Director Varun Vamsi was very careful to introduce the characters in the first half and connect the viewers to the story quick without being annoying. Aberaam Varma and Swetha Varma were the key part of the second half.
Although the character of Kalpika is very short, it plays a key role in the story. Dayanand Reddy gave his best for the role. Jose Franklin’s background score is an enormous advantage to the film. We can see a lot of depth in every dialogue that the director wrote. The film concludes with a note that it is dedicated to those who seek life.
