Storyline

It is a coming of age story of six youngsters, set in the beautiful nostalgic world of a working-middle class neighborhood.

With the beginning of responsibilities, and adulthood looming around the corner, their dreams and aspirations bring them all together, to make the whole experience magical. Life is Beautiful is a story about new beginnings. It is a celebration of life and its smaller joys. Written by Zed

World lives on hope
18 April 2013 | by (Middle Earth) – See all my reviews

Outing from Sekhar Kammula is anticipated with bated breath. In the past he has demonstrated his craft and story-telling skills.

The director has demonstrated sensitivity which gets reflected in every character including the pet dog. As always all the characters are fleshed out well, especially female (Sekhar Kammula's forte). The actor have given their best, or should we say the talented director has helped to realise their true potential. The screenplay is fluid and the movie engrosses you right from the word go. The sub-plots fit like glove in a hand into the main storyline.

Its good to see Amla & Anjala Zaveri after a long time. Shriya Saran as always does "stop the press" when she appears in the frame.

DOP has done a great job which gives you the feel of the environment. Music is light and breezy. Just like in "Happy Days" major portions of the plot seem autobiographical, which makes the audience have an instant connect.

The only short-coming is the length which makes the movie sag in the latter half. Additonally one or two sub-plots should have been edited out as it gives an impression of TV series ie. too many events happening on the stage. On that note the movie reminded me of Hrishikesh Mukherjee's "Hum Hindustani".

Overall, a must watch and roll on the next one Sekhar Kammula.
