good and cool movie anybody can watch the movie overall a pleasant movie.
24 April 2006 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Paurnami - A best title i feel than any other to this story as the whole story is Based on the theme Paurnami and the character Paurnami. A nice and Pleasant movie. Anybody can watch this movie without hesitation. Nice picturisation, settings and something different from the usual. Good make up for the artist especially Trisha and Prabas. Very good costumes. Excellent Music and choreography especially the last songs dance and the Music especially the duet song of the hero Prabas and Trisha very beautiful song Ninnala Navvugala. Hats of To Prabhu Deva Sir and Devi Sri Prasad.

Ladies first.

Trisha: excellent and ease in acting. good expressions. very well danced. and the role of Paurnami is very special Trisha is lucky to get this role and overall she has scored well in the movie.the dying scene and dance scene of the Song Ninnala nuvvagala Trisha has done excellently. and the Nepaali dress suits her very well.

Charmi: I think her acting was a bit over but still OK she has done the comedy scenes well with the hero. and her dance No. in the second song with the hero Prabhas was good especially when she puts the steps for that Cows bell when prabas tries to bring out her talent of dance that part is good somehow her last dance performance was not so good as Trisha.

Sindhu Taloni: I feel the role which she had got in this movie doesn't suit at all compared to her roles in other movie her face wont suit for the harsh character like troubling Prabhas but still OK somehow.

Prabas: I think Prabas is the one who steels the show and scores the highest among all i am not saying this because he is the hero or something but its fact as from beginning till end of the movie he has done his acting with ease and natural and he has given one of the best performance in dancing wise or fighting wise. even comedy too he has done well and his expression when Pauranami dies and his expression in song Ninnala navvegala and also his expression when he doesn't want to kill some other person and his father forces him to kill is wonderful and last but not the least that last scenes in the last song when they had put glass pieces upon the steps and he doesn't want Chandrakala to get wounded he scrawls upon that that part he has done excellently.

Sunil: Sunil has done his work perfectly by doing his comedy no words at all to tell about him as he always does his work perfectly i feel without taking any comments.

Director: The director Prabu Deva has bought the movie very beautifully there is no remarks in part of direction or choreography.

Music Director: Devi Sri Prasad has done a excellent job especially the song Ninnala navvugala excellent music he has given a ossam music for a traditionally story. hats of sir.

overall good somewhere some roles where not so good but OK
