a journey deep into love
31 October 2010 | by aphaniphaniSee all my reviews

well to say...days after the movie released....still the memories preserved fresh of the flick "ye maya chesave".i myself bought the blu- ray....that grabbed a place among the few telugu flicks i have in my rack.the beauty lies in the narration of the story,which is scintillating and flamboyant. gautham handled the script in a sensible manner(may be his own personal depiction),and the dialogues are laudable.the costumes are catchy(spykar) that adds a light to the background scenes.

this is to be lifted,the cinematography.manoj has done it all.it is the main reason for the beauty of the movie.

music by arr is outstanding.all the songs in the album are awe(,after boys)

chaitu has done a better performance than his previous flick josh. samantha the new comer stole the hearts.

overall a perfect movie without the so called bang bang scenes,tear rolling sentiments,nasty items and head cracking dialogues.

thanks to gautham for bringing this flick to us.
