Critic's Rating: 2.5/5
STORY: Vikram Aditya, an extremely well-known palmist who, despite trying hard not to, falls in love with Dr. Prerna. As he predicts a long and bright future for her, fate seems to have something else in store, doesn't it?
REVIEW: A group of scholars contact Guru Paramhansa (Satya Raj), who runs a kind of Vedic school. There is a clear incongruity between him and a scientist who questions his deep belief and his studies in astrology and palmistry. The sequence introduces the audience to Vikram Aditya (Prabhas), who is called "India ke Nostradamus" in the film, whose predictions never go wrong.
Vikram states throughout the film that he doesn't have a love streak and wants to flirt, not a relationship. However, he falls in love with Dr. Prerana(Pooja Hegde), a girl who struggles against some unavoidable circumstances in his life (further plot details will be revealed). The division here is Vikram Aditya's palm reading, which indicates a bright future, while the events of his life point in a different direction.
The story tries to point out that no science is absolute and 100% accurate; And that there is always a small but brilliant opportunity to change your destiny with karma. This applies even to the best palmistry in the world. However, at a runtime of around 140 minutes, which also seems boringly long, the basic thinking falls short. So the film didn't make the impact it could with all the hardware at its disposal, including household names in every tech department and a host of good artists.
The smooth chemistry between Pooja and Actor Prabhas is a hindrance in this love story and unfortunately their characters are not recorded with enough depth, clarity of thought. This also affects their individual performance, although the actors tried their best to play their roles convincingly. The script is full of meaningless moments, characters that don't serve the story, and many unexplained situations that make you wonder how and why.
The film was extensively shot in various parts of Europe, giving it a fairy tale look which is a bonus. It's great vision therapy. The music of Mithun, Amal Malik and Manan Bhardwaj blends well with the background of the story.
Recording some songs reminds you of the good music videos that were made many years ago. The visual effects are commendable and add to the visual quality of the film. But all this hardly saves this love story, whose fate was actually something else.Also Read - New Upcoming Bollywood Movies or Best Hindi Movies of 2021-22
