All about chemistry.
“U” Certified, 142 mins.
What is the film about?
It is love story of Rajaram (Sharwanand) and Nazira (Nitya Menon). How they meet first time, how love blossoms and how it all ended is what the film all about.
How is Sharwanand’s performance?
Sharwanand is superb as usual. He breathes life into character and also develops great chemistry with heroine Nitya Menon. More than the performance its his dialogue delivery and chemistry with heroine that are major assets for the film.
Direction By Kranthi Madav?
K Kranti Madav has neatly handled a film with wafer thin storyline. More than the story he seems to have concentrated on small moments between the lead pair to carry the film and that is exactly what works too as the second half feels weak in comparison because the lead pair chemistry is missing. But as the actual content about love is revealed in this half it salvages it to an extent.
Nitya Menon and others performance?
Nitya Menon is a powerhouse of performer and she shows it again. She makes one connect to her character effortlessly. Downside of her performance is the heavy dialogues her character gets to mouth every time she says something in the second half. There is the character of Parvatamma which is also neatly etched and portrayed. These two characters together with hero give us the best moments in the film. Surya as coach is fine and Tejaswi is decent.
Music and other departments?
Music and background score by Gopi Sunder are excellent. They make the small moments worthwhile. Cinematography is fine. Editing could have been better. Dialogues are good overall but the attempt to make every dialogue uttered have some message with punch pulls down the overall effort put into it.
Lead pair performance.
Music & BGM.
Drags during second half.
Thin on story.
Some overwritten dialogues.
The film is decent one without any doubt. The problem arises from thin storyline and heavy handed dialogues, so an alternative take would mean some additional meat to the story and editing of dialogues. By story we mean something that justifies the epic sweeping emotions the lead pair try to portray.
Did I enjoy it?
Yes, especially the performances.
Will you recommend it?
Yes, to those who love classy love stories.
