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
