One of the best Telugu movie of 2016. Its a gem to the industry and its a movie not to be missed
18 January 2017 | by ridinbalSee all my reviews

"One of the best Telugu movie of 2016. Its a gem to the industry and its a movie not to be missed" My rating- 4.5/5 (Movie with every ingredients mixed)

Positives- 1.) Direction,script and story- Direction was amazing and cant believe that Telugu industry has creative directors. Each and every scene was fabulous and entertaining. Script was masterpiece and it made a simple story excellent with powerful script.

2.)All actors- Everyone did their parts well. All were realistic and special mention to Vijay and ritu who acted out their parts very well and those two friends of vijay were hilarious specially priyadarshi whose humors went with the flow.

3.)Comedy- All the comedy were realistic and its something which we also see in day to day life and its presented out well on screen by actors. Director needs to be appreciated for portraying youth's stupidity with realism and i am sure all youth's could relate to it.

4.)Emotions and message mixed very well in the story and audience could get the feel.

5.) songs and bg score Negatives- (Nothing) Is it a must watch? Yes, and its a movie not to be missed. I hope this movie gets remaked so that non-Telugu audience can also see it.

Overall- Its very rare to see this type of movie and its one of the all time best Telugu movie and also it comes under my top 20 favorite movie list.

My rating- 4.5/5 (Movie with every ingredients mixed)
