Story: Seenu/Avinash (Akhil) is an orphan who becomes friends Junnu/Priya (Kalyani Priyadarshan) in Hyderabad. Junnu's dad gets transferred to Delhi. Seenu grows up as Avinash and Junnu as Priya. What happened to this childhood friends and How did they find each other forms the story of the film.
Acting: Akhil's acting has improved a lot compared to his first film. He looks uber cool throughout the film and did some amazing stunts and dances. Kalyani did a good job for a first movie. She looks fresh and felt very comfortable in her role. Ramaya Krishana as dotting a mother did a wonderful job. Her role works a catalyst between the lead pair. Her acting and comedy timing was top notch. Jagapathi Babu as loving dad did justice in his limited role. Ajay as comedy villain is ok. His role is not fully developed and at times felt like forced to created action scenes.
Techincal: The story by Vikram Kumar is nothing special. He managed to overcome that with his direction, even though at times felt like he is still in Manam hangover he pulled it off well. He mixed the emotional and action scenes well. He handled the subtle romantic scenes very well. The Music by Anup Rubens is a big asset to the movie. His background score brightens the mood of the movie. All songs looked good on the screen. The Cinematography by P.S Vinod is excellent. All the visuals look like a rich canvas. He covered up the Akhil's weakness very well. Prawin Pudi editing could have been better. Some scenes felt little dragged. The production by Nagarjuna Akkineni is top notch. Every frame in the movie looks rich.
Analysis: The story has nothing to talk about as boy meets girl, gets separated and gets her at the end has been tried and tested a number of times before but the way, Director Vikram Kumar presented the movie makes it watchable. A lot of scenes has Manam hangover but the way he mixed action episodes in between emotional scenes makes it different. The first half of the movie is dominated by the childhood story. Even though Akhil has a couple of good action episodes one can't get over those kids. The second half is good with nice emotional scenes between the lead cast. Even though the climax feels like little stretched it has a good feel. The audience will walk out of the movie with a good feeling.
Lead Pair Chemistry
Box office: The movie should do well in A centers and Overseas. The overall result depends on how the actions episodes are received in the B & C centers.
Verdict: A feel-good Love Story and can be easily watched once.
Bottom Line: Que Sera, Sera (Whatever Will Be, Will Be)
