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 movie.
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 screenplay.
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.
