cute couple, messy story
9 November 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Manesh was looking gorgeous in this movie, but unfortunately it was a bit lame. I found the plot a little hard to catch on to, but it had some interesting twists. It was fast paced but I thought it was more exaggerated than the usual Telugu films - Telugu movies are already exaggerated (especially the fights), but this one was a little overboard, the hero had both too much intelligence and too much strength. And one thing I hate seeing in movies is then endings in which either the hero or the heroine (or in this case, both) is (are) badly injured but the couple starts to walk somewhere like their love is really enough to totally heal them physically. Kaizer mentioned that Amrita is about to die and she really looked like it, but then all of sudden she was fine when the story ended. That was the last drop of exaggeration for me.

As for the love story, it was a nice one. Amrita and Manesh looked sweet together. The songs were enjoyable.

But I wish I would have picked another movie instead of this one. Watch it at your own risk. You might feel your time was wasted.
