Maestro is the story of a young and blind piano player Arun (Nithiin) who earns for his living. He falls for Sophie (Nabha Natesh), a bubbly happening girl and she too gets impressed with Arun though he is blind. Mohan (Naresh) and Simran (Tamannaah) invite Arun to play piano on their wedding anniversary after Mohan is a huge fan of Arun's piano work. On the same day, Mohan gets murdered and the rest of Maestro is all about the culprit behind the crime. Watch Maestro to know about the twists and how the crime mystery unfolds.
Maestro is the remake of Andhadhun, a Bollywood blockbuster crime thriller. Maestro follows the same theme and the director took the soul. Right from Nithiin to Tamannaah, everyone performed well and delivered their best. The first 15 minutes look slow-paced and once the first twist is unfolded, the film takes pace. The audience will be thrilled after they come to know that Arun is not blind. The technical aspects are the highlights and the interval episode is shot well. The music is soothing and it matches the film's mood. The first half of Maestro is good and thoroughly engaging.
The second half too looks racy and impressive. The film's runtime along with the twists are the major highlights of Maestro. Tamannaah's show throughout the second half is good and the climax portions are good enough. For those who watched the original, Maestro will be a decent attempt and for those who did not watch Andhadhun, Maestro is a thrilling ride. The technical aspects and the background score take the film to the next level. The twists in the second half get unfolded at the right time in the film. On the whole, Maestro is an impressive attempt.
Nithiin tops the show with his flawless and subtle performance as a blind guy with multiple shades. He excels throughout the film and Nithiin looks stylish as Arun. His performance is the major USP of the film. Tamannaah is a treat for her fans and she looks glamorous throughout. Tamannaah has never attempted like Simran and she looks perfect in the role. But, Tamannaah could not match Tabu from the original. Naresh has a meaty role and he did his best in the attempt as Mohan. Jisshu Sengupta is one more best find for the film and he is good as a cop. Nabha Natesh as Sophie has less prominence and she has nothing much to do in the second half of the film. All the other actors did their parts well.
Maestro is a decent attempt and it can be called a faithful remake of Andhadhun. The screenplay and the twists are adapted well from the original and the dialogues are good. The music and the background score are good and they are composed as per the mood of the film. The cinematography work is excellent and is one of the highlights of the film. The production values are good enough. Director Merlapaka Gandhi doesn't miss the soul and he delivers a decent work to deliver a faithful remake.
Maestro Final Word
For those who watched the original, Maestro will be a decent attempt and for those who did not watch Andhadhun, Maestro is a thrilling ride.
