Kiss is a romantic comedy entertainer with a few mass masala elements. Lead actors' performances are the main highlight in the film. Beautiful picturisation, good music and background score and a few comedy scenes are other attractions of the movie. But its dragging narration is one big drawback of the flick.
The multi-tasking Adivi Sesh has selected a unique story, which
is about two strangers from San Francisco coming together. The
entire story transpires in 24 hours. The major portion of the film
has been shot in the US, which is its USP. But the badly-written
screenplay leads to the slow narration throughout the
Priya (Priya Bannerjee) is a Telugu girl who is staying with her conservative father in San Francisco. She runs away from home, when her dad plans to get her married to Ravi (Bharat Reddy). While she is trying to commit suicide, a jovial guy named Sunny (Adivi Sesh) saves her and convinces her to enjoy life. Then they together set out to explore San Francisco. What happens next will form the crux of the story. Continue to read Kiss movie review in the slideshow.
Adivi Sesh's Performance In Kiss
As an actor, Adivi Sesh has done good job and he has delivered
brilliant performance. He looks very smart and jovial. He seems at
complete ease in all kinds of scenes like romance, comedy, etc. As
a director, he has failed to prepare a convincing
Priya's Performance In Kiss
Priya Bannerjee is also cute and bubbly. She has got a good
scope for her role and has tried to do justice to it. She impresses
the viewers with her glamour. Her chemistry with Adivi Sesh is also
good to watch on screen. Bharat Reddy, Shafi and others have also
done justice to their respective roles.
Kiss Production Values
Kiss has good production values. Sricharan Pakala and
Pete Wonder's music and background score are among the main
attractions. The picturisation is another big strength of the film.
The cinematographer has nicely captured the beautiful San
Francisco. Other technical departments have also done a commendable
job. But the editing is very bad and the editor should have trimmed
many scene to make them crispy.
Overall, Kiss is an average romantic comedy
entertainer. A good screenplay or editing would have made it better
watch. It can be watched once.
