A Well-Defined Movie!
1 November 2012 | by See all my reviews

All have acted well in this amazing piece of romantic drama. Realism is defined, love is defined, the characters are defined - absolute!

It is not the usual drama wherein boy meets girl, they quarrel and make love and blah blah. It gives a moral. A moral of true love.

It is a 21st century love story where you realize that true love is not only hard to find but hard to realize. And not everything goes by the wish of the viewer. The plot is independent and magnifies the theme which it intends to practice. No bull, no crappy scenes, no vulgar slangs, just pure cinema, this one!

And the movie doesn't strive hard to please the audience. It has GOT the charm to do it! Mind-blowing & Bold!

Watch it for Samvritha & Mamatha! A must watch!
