Devi Sri Prasad
Abhi (Ram) & Vaasu (Sree Vishnu) are thick childhood friends. Both of them fall for the same girl Maha (Anupama Parameswaran). Differences arises between Abhi & Vaasu after Maha chooses Vaasu over Abhi. After a heated argument between friends, Abhi leaves to Italy. After four years when Abhi came to know about a tragic incident in Vaasu's life, He wants to set the things right. Both Abhi & Vaasu comes to another friend's wedding at Ooty. Wedding planner Meghana (Lavanya Tripathi) falls for Abhi at wedding. What happens then ? Will the friends reunite ? How Meghana changes the equation between the friends ? concludes the story.
Ram appeared in a dual shaded character which perfectly fits for him. He looks handsome and His chemistry with Anupama Parameswaran is a treat to watch. Ram gave a matured performance in scenes with Anupama & Sree Vishnu. He is very good in emotional scenes.
Sree Vishnu gets a meaty role and he is apt. He gave a decent performance in second half. Anupama Parameswaran impresses as Maha with her expressions and good act. Her chemistry with Ram is one of the major highlights of the film.
Lavanya Tripathi is adequate as her character doesn't have much scope to contribute. Priyadarshi, Kireeti did well as friends and provided good laughs here and there.
Slow Paced Screenplay
Dragged At Times In Second Half
Kishore Tirumala who delivered a superhit 'Nenu-Sailaja' with Ram has come up with similar template but with a different story this time. He choses an interesting premise of Friendship and Love. Film starts off well showcasing the friendship between two kids followed by a breezy love story between Ram & Anupama. Things take a turn with the entry of Sree Vishnu and the later portions involving emotional scenes are handled very well. First half ends with an interesting twist which is enough to make audience wait for second half.
Second half begins completely on a different note in a marriage setup. This later half is completely dedicated to reunite the friends. Even though this entire sequence is filled with cliched scenes, Comedy and Emotional scenes at regular intervals made this enjoyable. Things start to fall in place before climax. The twist in the climax is neatly handled with emotions and ends the film on a positive note.
Dialogues penned by Director Kishore Tirumala are good and some of them are worth recalling. Music and BGM by Devi Sri Prasad added more value to this emotional drama. Cinematography by Sameer Reddy is superb with eye catching visuals. Producer Ravi Kishore of Sravanthi Cinematics who is known for his good taste in selecting scripts backed this tale of Friendship and Love with lavish production values.
Bottom-Line : Emotional Friendship Drama
Rating : 3/5
