Paurnami is a classic treat
4 November 2010 | by See all my reviews

Movie: Paurnami is a great entertainer with perfect casting and splendid music.Hats off to director Prabhu Deva

Hero: No body other than Prabhas would have fit the role of Shiva Kesav this much perfectly.He steals the show.

Heroines: Charmi has performed greatly.Her expressions are very cute. Trisha is good and her costumes suits her well.Sindu Tulane has done her job neatly even though her part is lesser.

story: The story is like a classic south Indian epic with lots of traditional values

Picturization: certain backdrops are very remarkable.Especially the palace of the Zamindar and the pond near which Trisha dances alone in the moonlight.Every scene visual treat to watch.

Music: Muvvala Navvakala is a feel good melody The best album of DSP
