Trivia

When filmmaker Vikram Kumar approached Nagarjuna, through Sudhakar Reddy (Nagarjuna's friend and a reputed film distributor) with the idea of making a film featuring the actors from three generations of Akkineni family, Nagarjuna, though found the idea interesting, asked Vikram Kumar to make a successful film in Telugu before he could bankroll it, as such a film was never made before in Telugu cinema. Vikram Kumar took it as a challenge and made a film titled "Ishq" featuring actor Nithin (Son of Sudhakar Reddy), who faced a consecutive 11 disasters before appearing in Ishq. The film became an instant hit, thus making Nagarjuna signing the project and giving a huge break for Nithin. Reportedly, Vikram Kumar worked for one year on the script before taking it to sets.

A well crafted Family fantasy
23 May 2014 | by Pavan_DaggupatiSee all my reviews

A story that fits only to Akkineni family and a film that only looks plausible with Telugu viewers.

When time and misfortune separates, love and re-incarnation brings and ties them together.

Performances were decent but nothing outstanding. Samantha looked more comfortable out of them all. ANR has less screen time but he did enough justice even at that age.

Some comedy scenes in first half should have been chopped to move forward to the plot point as fast as it can. But it didn't. So we have to wait till the interval for the main proceedings to happen. Interval and Climax were its strongest points.

Vikram Kumar has a classic taste in direction and i want to see his work more in the future. Cinematography was neat and clean but the color tones should have been changed accordingly to bring the contemporary look to the varied time periods. Background score and Prema Prema song are excellent.

Even some cinematic clichés are sugar coated with feel good factor and then you can't help but to appreciate and enjoy.

Yes. Go, appreciate and enjoy
