Movie Title



Seenu Vytla

Star Cast

Ram, Genelia, Brahmanandam, Sunil, Jayaprakash Reddy

This clean family entertainer may be inspired from half a dozen Hindi feel-good candy floss love stories but what makes it watchable are its lead pair Ram and Genelia. There are far too many stereotypes whom you have seen in umpteen films of this genre but director Seenu Vytla has packaged the film with all commercial ingredients in the right mix sans any vulgarity, crude comedy or mindless action.

Chandu (Ram), an engineering student in Bellary is from a joint family with three brothers (Nasser,Tanikella Bharani and Rajaram). He helps his cousin (Tamannaah) to elope with her lover (Navdeep) as the family is strictly opposed against love marriages. Chandu also falls in love with Pooja (Genelia), an NRI who comes to visit her uncles in Rayalaseema. A mistaken identity makes Chandu kidnap Pooja who is all set to get married. The rest of the story is all about how Chandu sends Pooja back to her house and marries her by winning over her family members.

Ram flexes his muscles and dances well and carries the role with consummate ease. The scenes in the second half when he makes Brahmanandam a bakra are entertaining. A vibrant Genelia once again lights up the screen with her bubbly nature. Her dubbing done by Savitha suits her well.

Brahmanandam as McDowell Murthy brings the house down and he has a well-written role.Sunil as 'theda candidate' is also a rocker with his Bharatanatyam spoofs and one-liners. The supporting cast like Jayaprakash Reddy, Kota, Nassar, Sudha and the kid who is JP's grandson are all good. Tamanna and Navadeep have done cameo roles.

Songs and background score by Devi Sri Prasad is good. On the whole, a rib-tickling comedy for the entire family. Go watch it

Verdict: Good
