delightful movie about importance of Art in life
14 September 2005 | by See all my reviews

The story of a young lady born in a family of classical dancers. The problem is she hates dance. The guy next door wont let her give up the beautiful art which makes her special from the rest of the world. The movie explores different problems they face, and explains different views of the same issue.

Delighted. That was my first reaction after watching the movie. yes , the movie has quite a flaw in cinematized dance sequences. But the movie is totally amazing in the way it conveys the message. The story and screenplay are two pillars supporting this movie, which is decorated by great music. The lyrics of all the songs, are the best I ve heard till date.

One song is a debate between the lady and guy next door, about the importance of saving ones art VS doing what u like. Another compares the dancing lady with the Rain. The third one explains how awesome life can get with art. Awesome lyrics from the great writer Sirivennela.
