Vikramaditya (Nag) is a rich entrepreneur who has thousands of crores but becomes paraplegic in an accident. He does not believe in money. Sreenu (Karthi) on the other hand believes money is everything. The story about how Sreenu who believes only in money shows the nuances of life to Vikram who is sullen by the fact that he cannot see the world after being rendered paraplegic after an accident. What happened to Sreenu and Keerti (Tamanna) love story? How does he fulfill the wishes of his below average family? The answers should be watched on screen.
Nagarjuna suited to the core to the role of paraplegic millionaire who is permitted to wheelchair. We only see the character not Nag in this role. Karthi also blended into the mass character superbly and emoted extraordinarily. This stands out as his best performance till date. Tammana as the secretary also did well with her own dubbing. Prakash Raj and Jayasudha showed what they are capable of once again. Tanikella Bharani, Ali, Praveen, and Tagubotu Ramesh did their parts well and became a part of a good film.
Cinematography by S. Vinod stands out. Most importantly, the way he captured the beautiful locales of Pairs is worth a watch. Gopi Sundar's music was a plus point be it songs or RR. Vamsi's screenplay was very good. Dialogues in the second half by Abburi Ravi suited the mood. Lyrics by Seetarama Sastry and Ramajogaiah Sastry are awesome, should specifically mention Nuvvemichhavo. Production values by PVP are awesome and very rich.
AP Messenger analysis:
Vamsi Paidipally became half successful after he chose Nag for the role of paraplegic in this film adopted from the French film The Intouchables. Karthi suited to the role of Sreenu to the T. He was chose as he has done similar roles in Tamil before. He gave stiff competition to Nag in some scenes with respect to performance and stands as one of the highlights of the film. Chemistry between Karthi and Tamanna worked out well in their second film. Though Nag's were skeptical before release regarding him being seen in a wheelchair all the while in the film, they will end up keeping their heads high after watching the film. There are some absolute tearjerking emotional scenes in the film. Vamsi Paidpally though took some time, has come with a very good film that will stand out as one of the best films in the recent times. PVP has spent as required and that can be felt on the screen. Adavi Sesh, Anushka and Sriya glittered with cameos. There are some scenes where it is impossible to hold your tears. To conclude, this is an absolute feast to the audience who are bombarded with routine films for some time. Don’t miss it.
