Individuality, Love and Family!!
26 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Bommarillu (House of Toys) is the story of a young man (portrayed fantastically by Siddharth) who lives with his parents and faces an identity crisis as his overly protective father takes care of everything for him. When all the little details of his life are taken care of, he has nothing but a sense of emptiness left in him.

When he meets this happy go-lucky girl (played to perfection by Genelia D'Souza) who does anything and everything she wishes without constraints, he gets inspired and loves her dearly. He comes to terms with his own life and the things he misses, mostly his individuality. The rest of the story is how he convinces his family, especially his father about his state d'affaire and wins her over.

The casting has been excellent. Siddharth, Genelia, Prakash Raj, Jayasudha, Srinivasarao Kota suit well for their respective roles, especially in the scenes that require strong emotions. These scenes have been presented in a good manner. The music of the movie is a great asset.

On the whole, the movie is not just your average romantic comedy, but a pleasing mixture of human emotions, drama and romance.

9/10
