Much better than what I had expected...
6 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Bommarillu is the story of Sidhu's(Sidharth) struggle in dealing with a controlling father.Life moves along manageable well till the point where he gets engaged to a girl of his father choice and then goes on to meet the girl of his dreams,Hasini (Genelia).Sidhu who had been rebelling from within until then,finally finds a reason to bring out the rebel who had been hiding within him all along.

The movie moves at a steady pace and keep the viewer interested at all junctions.Lead performance by Sidharth and Genelia are commendable though Genelia occasionally stumbles from sweet to sappy.The supporting cast does a decent job but I found Prakash Raj a little tiring as he does the same thing he does in every movie with the tapping-forehead-with-four-fingers-thing.

Strong points for the movie include:- 1.Squeaky clean script:-Its thekind of squeaky clean that u can watch this movie sitting next to your maths professor without flinching.The lead pair rarely make bodily contact except for some dance moves.No double meaning jokes,no exposing,no innuendo of any sort.Kudos to the director for his effort to keep it this clean.

2.Story&Direction:-The approach is the same,but at least the story is different.the characters of Sidhu and his father are well fleshed and their portrayal is commendable.It would have been easy to dismiss Sidhu for being a wuss without a spine if it wasn't for the directors effort in showcasing the emotions that lurk withing a man without freedom.

3.Genelia:-The whole script rests on her likability.And she does her job pretty well.Sometimes she does stumble on the line between sweet and sappy, but she finds her balance pretty fast.

4.Music:-Another great job by the talented Devi sri Prasad.Engaging and fun.

Weak points:-

1.The comedy track is weak.

2.Kota Srinivas rao and Jayasudha are wasted.They do provide strength to the cast but they are too talented to be offered that little.

3.Occasionally over sweet script but they are minor glitches and overall don't effect the movie to a great extent.

Bottomline:-A very good movie to be enjoyed with the entire family.If this movie doesn't break records,it will certainly run in theaters for a long time.
