Lead actors acting
Tharun Bhascker is definitely a very talented young director. But his style of filmmaking dominated his main story here. Also, his heavy reliance on comedy made him drag the film more than his main story could last and carry. Had the film concentrated more on building on the friendship of lead characters, the climax would have had the weight that filmmakers aspired for.
Even though slice of life kind of making should have benefitted the film, the choice of scenes also doesn’t allow the audience to completely connect with the film. As it is a well-crafted film with careful emphasis on comedy, you can have a good time at the theatre. But do keep your expectations under check as it is not as good as Pelli Choopulu.
Verdict: It is a one time watch.
