Nithiin, a former Telugu hero, plays Arun, a blind pianist who lives in Goa and takes up music at local restaurants to make ends meet. He also meets Sophie (Nabha Natesh) and her father Pedro who are struggling to keep their restaurant going.
Nithiin plays his character convincingly and fits into the role quite well. Despite the fact that he never performed as a blind person before, he manages to bring out his character’s personality without diluting it.
The negative roles played by Tamannaah and Nabha are miscast and they lack the villainous look of Tabu, who acted in the original. They have put in sincere efforts but the movie could’ve done better with their maiden negative role.
Nabha Natesh has been in the Indian film industry for the past few years. She has appeared in several Kannada and Telugu films. She made her acting debut with Kannada film Vajrakaya in 2015 and Telugu film Nannu Dochukunduvate in 2018.
The Telugu remake of Andhadhun, Maestro has Nithiin, Tamannaah Bhatia and Nabha Natesh as the lead actors. It is directed by Merlapaka Gandhi and produced by N Sudhakar Reddy and N Nikitha Reddy under Sreshth movies banner.
The story is a thriller which revolves around a virtuoso pianist played by Nithiin who stumbles upon a grisly crime and gets involved in it. The script has some interesting twists that keeps the audience on the edge of their seat.
