A gang of baddies (Dhanraj (Ashish Vidyarthi) and Don Baba (Mahesh Manjrekar)) are in search of the family of a top scientist.

Release[edit]

The film was launched on 23 April 2008 at the Film Nagar Cultural Center in Hyderabad, India.[3] Adurs received a good opening at the box office in Khammam despite threat from some pro-Telangana outfits.It was released in major towns such as Khammam, Palvancha, Sathupally, Bhadrachalam and Wyra. It was screened for four shows without any interruption at all centres barring Yellandu where the theatre management preferred not to go for it following threatening calls received from certain organisations. Police and the TDP played an effective role in ensuring trouble-free screening of the movie.[4]

Reception[edit]

Rediff gave a four stars said "Brahmanandam is hilarious. Performance-wise, NTR Jr takes the cake. He is simply marvellous as Chari, the Brahmin spouting loud dialogues while his Narasimha is tough yet more sober. NTR presents the contrasts well. All in all, Adhurs is NTR's show all the way!"[5] Sify gave a verdict as "Mass entertainer" noted "NTR brings total justice to his dual role as Chari and Narasimha. His characterisation as a Brahmin youth is simply superb and hilarious, but at the same time raking up a controversy with a group of the Brahmins community approaching the State governor Mr Narasimhan to ban the film. On the other hand, NTR’s role as Narasimha as rugged guy would work well with the mass audience. Nayanthara and Sheela provide the glam quotient while Brahmanandam is hilarious as Bhattu, receiving a big footage which runs into nearly 40 minutes in the film."[6] The Hindu gave a mixed review stated "NTR in two roles is pretty easy with the diction. His dances are amazing and accord the 'mass kick' in the title song that comes before the climax. The humour component is adequately handled by Brahmanandam who hogs the limelight as a Hindu priest."[7]
