True Rom-Com!
13 January 2013 | by nelufar_upSee all my reviews

Reason to watch: Performance of Nani in Ashta Chamma.

Outcome: AWESOME!!! As the movie starts one may think it to be usual Telugu action flick (thanks to director for such a creative start!). But as the journey of the first 2 introduced characters and the movie unfolds, you get to view a true rom-com :). Music, romance and comedy are very well inter-woven in the narrative and don't come as an obstacle. Best part is introduction of the characters, connecting them with fine details and later putting together all the loose ends in the plot appropriately. All the actors have played their characters to a tee. For a change liked the friendly and understanding presentation of the parents. In fact the most disputed generation gap conversation was presented in a very amiable way. (I know it is shown in many other movies too but the presentation is indeed novel.) Another worth mentioning piece is the satire on sensationalizing news. All in all, enjoyable romantic comedy!!!
