Amidst huge exceptions, the film has hit the screens today. Let’s see whether it lives up to all the hype or not.

Story

Govind(Vijay Devarakonda) is a well mannered job holder who falls in love with Geetha(Rashmika). But to his bad luck, a small rift makes Geetha loose all the impression on him. Things become even worse for Govind when Geetha’s brother decides to marry his own sister. Rest of the story is as to how Govind manages to solve all his problems and wins his love back.

Plus Points in this movie

One of the major plus points of the film is the hot and happening Vijay Deverakonda himself. His characterization and impressive comedy timing makes a world of difference to this film. The way Vijay pulled off Govindam’s role is totally convincing and proves the fact that he will emerge as a massive star and amazing actor in the future. Vijay is just adorable throughout the film and makes you fall in love with his role at the first instance itself.

Heroine Rashmika is very good in her strong role and brings depth to the proceedings with her amazing screen presence. Rashmika’s chemistry with Vijay is crackling and their romantic moments light up the screen in a big way. She is a star in the making and will go a long way in Tollywood.

Comedian Rahul Ramakrishna shines yet again with his comedy punches in the first half. In the past, audience would just burst out into laughter after seeing Brahmanandam on screen. The same is happening with Vennela Kishore these days and he lifts the film totally in the climax making things even more entertaining.

Though the conflict point is simple, Parasuram makes things interesting with entertaining moments at regular intervals. The first half is filled with romance, comedy and good emotions and this is where the tempo is set up nicely. Subbaraju is pretty good in his role.

Minus Points in this movie

After a very entertaining first half things get a bit slow in the later part with some routine break up scenes. The narration gets slow in the pre-climax with all the family scenes. The song ‘What The Life’ looks out of place and could have been edited out to make things even crisp.

The film’s audio was a huge hit among the movie lovers but sadly, the songs look ordinary on screen. The makers could have shot them a bit more lavishly making things even more interesting for the audience. Naga Babu is wasted in his role and his dubbing is horrible.
