Theatrical Release: 23-05-2014

Story: The movie starts way in 1980’s where Radha(Naga Chaitanya) and Krishnaveni (samantha) who get married eight years ago and have a 6year old child. The couple quarrel most of the times and one day they decide to depart. The couple while returning after filing for their divorce meets an accident and die. The kid Bittu(Nagarjuna) grows up and becomes a successful businessman, what happens after that? What characters come into his life? How Bittu handles those forms the story?

Performances: Nagarjuna has done good work; he suited well to the role done in the pre-independence episode. Nagachaitanya is Natural and he lifted all the romantic scenes to a new level. Samantha is fantastic in both the roles Krishnaveni and Priya. She showed nice variation. ANR is good and played crucial role in the second half. Many other actors have done cameos which is good to see. Art work is good. Cinematography is excellent and the Editing is smooth and okay. Music by Anup Rubens is big asset. The story and screenplay are simple and gripping. The Direction is good. The production values are rich.

Analysis: The film is a drama which spans 100 years lying between 1920 and 2014 with a reincarnation angle in it and is based on the concept of eternal love. It covers three generations and the way director handled it needs a big pat on his back.

Performances need a special mention in this film, right from ANR to Naga Chaitanya every one has done fine job. ANR and Naga chaitanya scenes are very entertaining. Nagarjuna has done subtle action and evoked humour in many scenes. Naga Chaitanya excelled in love/romantic scenes. His dialogue delivery, body language and natural performance are big asset to this film. Samantha showed good variation in both the roles. Sriya is okay. Akhil Akkineni, Raashi Khanna, Neetu Chandra, AmithaBacchan, Lavanya Tripati have made cameo appearances. Posani, Ali, M.S.Narayana and Sapthagiri are okay in the comedy department.

The technical departments have given good output. The art work is fine (except a couple of frames in 80’s), they have taken care of good visuals. Editing is fine. The initial part of the second half looked slow. Cinematography by P.S.Vinod is good. The pre-independence episode was well shot and color graded. Music by Anup Rubens is good, all the songs sounded melodious and catchy. The background score is fantastic. Dialogues by Harsha Vardhan are good. The screenplay is good.

Vikram Kumar who earlier directed Nitin starrer love story ISHQ is back this flick. The screenplay is simple and neat. The story even though looks complex and lengthy on paper it was shown simple and easily gets into the mind (thanks for the voice over narration Technique). The way clock tower time (10:20) was used to link the scenes is good. The detailing in the past and how he connected them in the stories when he narrates the present situations is very good.

There are some links/threads which the director(deliberately avoided) is not interested in either to show or go into the details like Where is ANR all these days, Who are samantha’s/Naga chaitanya’s parents. Barring few illogical scenes (memory recovery to Naga chaitanya and Samantha looked hurried up) which looked too dramatic. The director has done fine job in narrating this tale. The love track (present generation) between Samantha and Naga Chaitanya could have come bit earlier to travel more in Audience mind. The love/entertainment looked rushed up and speedy which reduced the feel. The Pre-climax and Climax episodes could have been handled leisurely. The Pre-Independence episode between Nagarjuna and Sriya was bit stretched post the interval episode.

The Movie leaves a mark even after walking out of the theaters. The movie has a special craze as all the three generation heroes of Akkineni family have acted in a single film. This movie slowly grows onto your mind and leaves a feel. A good movie to go for ….. This weekend.
