Repeat Telugu Movie Review: Naveen Chandra, a talented actor, has only been noticed for his work in a small number of major blockbusters. One such new release is the film “Repeat,” which may be viewed on the Disney+Hotstar OTT platform as of August 25. He landed several prominent leadership roles in films and web series that were released only online. Let’s start figuring out if this movie is worth your time.
A novelist goes to the police to claim that he is receiving death threats because he wrote a novel that featured the criminal responsible for a string of crimes committed in the city a few months ago. The police probably think he’s drunk, so they ignore him. The next day, a girl disappears, precisely as the author predicted she would. The daughter of the DGP is missing, thus an undercover cop has been put on the investigation. What transpires and what turns up as a result of this research constitutes the remainder of the story.

The film’s opening sequences are well-written and directed, and they hook us immediately. The film invests time into making us care about the main people and the issues they face. After Naveen Chandra is introduced as an undercover investigation officer, the movie’s plot and narration keep you captivated. There are times when the scenes feel mundane and predictable, and the DGP’s history provides a clear indication of what may have happened and what may happen next during the inquiry.
Naveen Chandra gave an excellent performance as an investigating officer. Former actress Madhoo Shah (aka Madhubala) is a complete and utter failure as DGP. Her portrayal is always exaggerated and unrealistic. Achyuth Kumar, who portrays the writer, is believable in the role, and the rest of the cast did what they had to do to move the story through.
The technical aspects of the film look solid. The score composed and performed by Ghibran is crucial in setting the appropriate tone for each scene. The majority of the movie is comprised on static shots, and while none of them are particularly notable, they cannot be ignored because the lighting specifies the atmosphere essential for the suspense. Generally speaking, production values are satisfactory.
Director Aravindh Srinivasan performed a fantastic job at capturing the audience’s interest in the opening moments. However, there were a couple scenes in the movie’s second act that he had trouble with.
Repetition is a thrilling and enjoyable film in every way. The interesting idea will have your interest till the very end.
