Maaya is thriller love story with a back drop of ESP
(Extra-Sensory Perception). Harshavardhan Rane and Avantika's
performances are the main highlights in the film. Neelakanta's
unique script and dialogues, Shekar Chandra's background music,
Balreddy's camera work are other attractions. The slow-paced
narration and few predictable scenes are the big drawbacks of the
Made with a tagline of 'Jaragaboyedhi Mundhe Kanapadithe', Maaya
deals with a fresh concept of Extra-Sensory Perception. In terms of
its story, it is the first film of its kind in Telugu cinema.
Though he has fresh concept, the director has failed to depict the
same on the screen in a convincing way. While first half bores you,
the second half is very interesting and gripping. The last 30
minutes of the film is superb and it is the highlight of the
Meghana (Avanthika) is a TV correspondent. She has the special
psychic ability called ESP due to which she is able to foresee the
incidents that are going to happen. She falls in love with Sidharth
Varma (Harshavardhan Rane), when she meets him for an assignment
from her company. As the days pass, her childhood friend Pooja
Raj) enters their life. Meghna foresees an unexpected incident.
What happens next will form the crux of the story.
As usual, Harshavardhan Rane has delivered good performance in
Maaya and his chemistry with both the heroines is good. Avanthika
has also done her best, but she needs to learn a lot in terms of
her expressions. Sushma Raj, Nandini Rai and others have done
justice to their respective roles.
On the technical front, Shekar Chandra's music is the main
highlight. His song compositions are good, but the placement of
couple of the tracks is not good. His background score helps the
director to elevate the intensity of some sentimental scenes.
Balreddy's cinematography is brilliant. Other technical departments
have also done commendable jobs.
Overall, Maaya is good suspense thriller that deals with a
unique concept. If you do not mind watching dragging narration in
the first half, you will enjoy the second half very much.
Especially, the climax is brilliant. Continue to Maaya
