It is about two individuals with different introspections towards love. It is about two people who were, are and will be in awe of each other. It is the story of Varun and Nitya, their journey of life, their love and their decisions. Varun is the boy next door. He is not a charmer but he is cute, he is not meticulous but he is instinctive. He is caring and loving. He is also arrogant and proud. Nitya is the beautiful girl who every other boy dream of. She is the focused girl, driven by passion and emotional at heart.
The saga of their love is the crux of the movie. Their decision making during the course of their life, and the factors which make them lead to take those decisions were portrayed. A 8 year old boy chooses boys as his playmates over a girl, a teenage girl choosesbeing a student leader over her possessive love, a young man chooses his career and family responsibility over his girlfriend. How these choices have created the rift and how they made it to the end is the second half of the movie. The differences, dualities and the complexities in the thought process of a girl and a boy are clearly established.
Nani did an amazing job in showing different emotions. He was natural. The only glitch was he wasn't suitable as a school going kid. Samantha is adorable and beautiful. She is believable as a teenager, as a college student and as a complete woman. The only other notable character in the movie is Krishnudu and he did his given limited job. All other characters are not even worth mentioning.
The good things about this movie are, it is about two people and it is all about those two people. There are no diversions, there is no forced humor. It was all about how their decisions affected their lives and only their lives. Dialogues were lengthy and slow but natural, situations were believable and romance unbelievable. The bad things about this movie are, background music, no picturesque photography, apart from few scenes in Malapad, which is so evident in GVM's previous movies.
Climax was the best part where Varun struggles to get over his inner conflict. Songs were not up to my imagination. Overall, this is one kind of movie which you can enjoy if you have seen this happen any time in your life.
