Naandhi (2021) Surya (Allari Naresh) is an IT employee leading a happy life till he’s marked as a suspect in a high-profile murder case. As an under-trial prisoner, he doesn’t just have to prove his innocence in court; he also has to face abuse in custody. Advocate Aadhya (Varalaxmi Sarathkumar) takes up the case, fresh off law school. How the duo manages to navigate rough waters forms the tale. Police brutality is an issue not taken seriously in our country, especially when Tollywood often glorifies the idea of encounters and non-judicial killings. Naandhi takes the opposite route and showcases what we as a society lose when innocent people are punished by the system. Both the cast and crew of the film deserve applauds for bringing forth a subject that’s less explored in this film industry..
