This is definitely not a new genre of a revisionist romantic movie, it is another tried and tested theme of the lives of a few students who come to the land of dreams to pursue higher studies and find a job. In this process some find love and some struggle to express their feelings. Revanth and Raajitha are in love with each other but the latter doesn't reveal her feelings as she is concerned about her parents. She complies with their wishes to marry someone else and only in the last moment gets what she wants.
A major flaw in the story is that the director fails to create any amount of sympathy for the heroine or the hero, it doesn't matter to the people if they are together or not as Haarika (Raajitha) is portrayed as a opportunistic, self-absorbed woman and not someone who values people's feelings. The choreography is repetitive and is designed to fill the gaps, music is pathetic and the background score is an aural sore, to say the least. Other technical contribution just pass muster and are ordinary.
Revanth looks like Navdeep and does a confident job, Raajitha's presence is discomfiting, should have played the friend's role rather than the heroine. She not only looks obese, older to the hero but doesn't suit the demands of the script. The story says the girl is an Indian but comes to the USA for studies, here she looks every inch an Indian born in America.
The heroine is contemporary, fashionable, gets what she wants but she wants the hero to make the first move, the next move and then finally leaves a message on the phone before leaving to India, 'stop me before it's too late', which she could have done far earlier. The momentum of the film is not uniform with frequent crests and troughs with more of the latter. A person in the apartment loses his father in India and his mates pool money to send him back to India, even in such crucial scenes the director fails to extract emotions.
My Heart Is Beating..Adola is not about the whims of fate, children understanding the parents, making sacrifices for them or vice versa. It is more about disappointment and regret that results from not expressing feelings and being blind to what is around you. There is no humour in film, and the one who attempts it tries hard to be a Vennela Kishore, a youth who works for a software company in the USA says 'barging' for barganing in a store. May be makes for a good home video or could be simply forgettable.
