Storyline

100% Love Balu is a brilliant student and always tops his class. Maha Lakshmi comes from a village and stays in Balu's house to do her graduation in the same college. Balu has the typical ego possessed by state rankers and he is obsessed by it. His studies get disturbed with the entry to Maha Lakshmi as she starts dominating him over a period of time. This leads to differences and ego clashes between Balu and Maha Lakshmi. There is also a subplot of two separated grand parents. The rest of the story is all about how Balu and Mahalakshmi realize that they are made for each other. Written by VP

Not 100% Actually...
12 November 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

**PROLOGUE**

Balu (Naga Chaitanya) is a very bright student and revered by everyone in his college. His cousin Maha Lakshmi (Tamanna) stays at his house for studies. At first, Balu seems to strike off those immature 'infatuations' out of the equation. But chemistry ensues inevitably. – But what happens next? This is an unusual college love story (coming-of-age?) given the context of Tollywood movies.

**A STRONG PREMISE WITH A WEAK PLOT**

PREMISE: The movie is about how egos could cloud one's judgment. And how even love looks like hate through the lens of ego. Balu thinks he should be the one, the Great Balu. But Maha Lakshmi has her own definitions.

PLOT: The film is how they deal with it, whether they can overcome the barriers of misunderstanding between them. The plot starts slow and eventually catches up in the Sukumar-Style. But again it loses ground and strays to covers so many aspects not directly pertaining to the protagonists.

**CHARACTERIZATIONS**

Here Naga Chaitanya sets in comfortably in the cool college guy part, but he hardly relates to the indecisive, ego-centric Balu, trying to convey his love. Tamanna definitively caught the lime light. She has acted well beyond Naga Chaitanya's ability and a thumbs up for the movie. Others did their part.

**SCREENPLAY**

Screenplay hardly keeps the film interesting. It is a big drawback; even the comedy element couldn't save the movie. At times, song sequences just jump in without much appreciation for the context of story. It takes a light-hearted approach barring any seriousness to the plot or characters…

**GRAPHICS**

Very unconvincing graphics, even commercials have better graphics. The first song 'Aho Balo' graphics are just muddy are irritating (see for yourself). The cinematography is to be appreciated, it keeps the scene interesting.

**MUSIC**

Devi Sri Prasad is the man of the hour. His music is so unusual and refreshing. He proved that he is not in for the 'same-old-way-kinda-things'. It's a commendable step from producers to encourage such unconventional and peppy music. If it's not for the music, the movie would have been a mere entry in the CBFC catalog.

**THE HARD CONCLUSION**

Sukmar really wanted to do a unique coming-of-age love story. But luck has it that everything didn't fall in place. This is a kind of movie which you don't know if you want to recommend it to a friend or not. It's a kind of movie you can't decide if it worth a watch are not.

It's a love story with (interesting theme + bad story + very good refreshing music + some comedy).

"THIS MOVIE FARED WELL… BUT WHO'S IN FOR A AVG-MARK THESE DAYS…"
