What is bad:
The second half drags. Tollywood technicians should be careful when they get “inspired” by Hollywood hits and decide to remake them. The first thing they should watch out for is the length of the film. English movies are usually of 90 minutes duration. When you try stretching that to over 2 hours, the first thing you risk is losing the pace and the next thing you risk is diluting the impact. Kaavya’s dairy suffers from both. Next the casting of Manjula was a big mistake. Annabella Sciorra plays the role in the English original and she is a seasoned artist with many movies to her credit. Manjula on the other hand does not have that kind of experience, and it shows. In a way she lets the film down.
Watch it if you have not seen the English original. Otherwise wait for the DVD.
Is there such a paucity of good scripts in Tollywood that we have to resort to remaking video-circuit Hollywood hits from the early 1990s? And this coming from a person who is associated with one of the biggest production houses in South India!
