There, he suddenly crosses his path with Padmanabhan and things change upside down for him. What will he do now? Who is this Padmanabhan? and why did Satyam cross paths with him in the actual place?. To know the answers you need to watch the film on the big screen.
Lie - Star Performance
In LIE, Nithiin has been experimenting with different scripts of late. He rocked the pink blazer look in one of his earlier movies, which brought him back to success. Moreover the actor looks uber macho with a cool hairstyle. His appearance has been a talking point, and will definitely tease the cine buff in you to see how that matches his acting prowess. Megha Akash has done justice to her role and her chemistry with the hero is good. Arjun Sarja, Sri Ram, Ajay, Nassar, Ravi Kishan, Brahmaji, Prithviraj and Brahmanandam have also done good jobs. Director Hanu Raghavapudi came up with LIE, which truly seems to have a thrilling plot.
Lie - Technical Team
Full marks to 14 Reels for putting in a lot of money as the film looks super rich and gives the feel of a Bollywood film. Music by Mani Sharma is pretty good but his background score is just awesome and elevates the film to a decent level. Dialogues are good and so was the art direction. Editing is below average as at least ten minutes in the film could have been easily chopped off. Nithin has been styled supremely well in the film. Coming to the director Hanu Ragahavapudi, he has written the plot extremely well but his execution is not up to the mark. His inexperience is showcased in many areas as he could not balance the film and added many unnecessary elements. The villain's track has been handled superbly by him. Had he added some fun or romance here and there and made the run time crisp, the effect would have been even better.
Lie - Analysis
Meanwhile going by the trailer, we understand the hero gets into trouble after getting involved in a cat and mouse game after a suspicious packet goes missing. How the hero deals with the issue with his intelligence is the climax of the movie. Arjun had acted in negative role in the movie. This macho Man had done brilliant performance. The movie is not so impressive, unconvincing logic. It is a below average movie. Production values and scenes between Arjun and Nithiin are the only positives in the movie. Other than that the plot of the movie are below average.
