The answers to these questions will reveal the rest of the story.
After watching the movie, each and every audience get surprised to know that this director is the one delivered the national acclaimed movie Minugurulu. Of course, many of audience is not watched Minugurulu movie but it has received positive reviews from the critics. So, director Ayodhya Kumar eyed on a commercial success and followed the current trend of bold movies.
Now, he is back with a romantic entertainer titled 24 kisses. The trailer and making video are created a great impact on the audience and it is the reason behind the houseful boards in the morning show. The theme of the movie itself is a confusing one and the director has created all the characters full of confusion. He has chosen a bold content to showcase the hot kisses between the lead pair and he added a social cause in it which is a mismatch to the plot.
The hero character, heroine character and even other characters are also clueless. The logic in the movie are also pointless and seems like ridiculous things. Adith Arun has given the best performance but his role is misfired with the confusion added by the director. Hebah Patel is sensuous and impresses the young audience with her hot chemistry with the co-star. Rao Ramesh added his touch to the Mental Doctor character and his dialogues are witty. Naresh did his best.
The music by Assam music director Joi Barua is different. Few songs are really good. The cinematography is also clean and neat. But, the main drawback of the movie is the narration of the director and he failed to narrate an interesting story to the audience and unnecessarily added mismatched plot to the main plot. Finally, the 24 kisses are tasteless and don’t entertain the audience completely.
