Great blend of character and observational comedy
23 December 2012 | by nelufar_upSee all my reviews

I am surprised that no one bothered to write review for this movie which is one of it's kind exploring a very common issue of "FEMALE FANDOM" and that too of none other than "THE PRINCE" aka Mahesh Babu. I would like to divide my review in to two category:

1.) Technicalities: Though I don't understand technical details, there were few evident things that could not be ignored. The novel presentation of the screenplay will develop an instant liking for the movie. Introduction of the characters at right pace and their interplay with the plot is perfect. Background score gives the magical touch making the scenes and the plot enjoyable to the core! Climax could have been better but whatever is presented is not so bad. (I read about poor climax in the critical reviews.) Let's say after all it's a movie and not real life so it's acceptable.

2.) Characters and performances: All the actors deserve a rapturous applause for awesome depiction of the characters. But Anand aka Srinivas Avsarala is definitely the icing on the cake. He is not just a character but the Sutradhara of the plot and has done his job quite well. Watching him perform reminded me of classic comedians like Om Prakash. He has a very good comic timing.

Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed this good, clean and indeed a funny comedy.
