Continuing the trend of small budget flicks, yet another film titled ‘Padamati Sandhya Ragam(London Lo)’ has hit the screens today. Starring Chaitu Shantharam, London Ganesh and Shahela, this film is directed by Vamsi Muniganti. Let’s now see how the film is.
Aravind(Chaitu)is a software engineer who always dreams of meeting his dream girl. One fine day, he along with his friend Venu(London Ganesh) travel to London for a project work.
As soon as they land in London, they come across a gang who introduces themselves as friends from the same village. After traveling for some time, the entire gang leaves back Aravind and Venu stranded on the road.
During this time, the two friends meet Amulya (Shahela) who helps them out of their tricky situation. As expected, Aravind gets attracted to Amulya and decides to propose her during his stay in London.
Does Aravind propose to Amulya? What happened to his dream girl? Will Amulya accept Aravind’s love? That forms the rest of the story.
Production values are very good in the film. The entire movie has been shot in London and locations have been superbly chosen. London Ganesh, who acted as hero’s friend impresses with good laughs here and there.
Hero Aakash’s special appearance in the proceedings is interesting and he does a very good job. The way he guides Aravind has been showcased supremely well. Shahela who played the female lead looks decent and gave a decent performance.
Minus Points: –
One of the biggest minus points of the film is the routine love story which was presented in the London backdrop. Director Vamsi’s story and screenplay have nothing new to offer and we have seen such concepts since ages.
Other than Aakash in a special appearance, no other supporting cast are known faces and do not impress much. The family emotions showcased are so artificial that they irritate you to the core.
Being a love story, the chemistry between the lead pair in so unnatural. Hero Chaitu fails to impress with his acting in emotional episodes.
Technical Aspects: –
The camerawork is not up to the mark. Editing is below par. Coming to the director Vamsi, he completely failed in his story selection as the script is quite stale and routine. The screenplay is so flat and has no interesting moments in it. Music by Kesava Kiran is some what better and his background score impresses in parts.
Verdict : –
On the whole, Padamati Sandhya Ragam(London Lo) has absolutely nothing new to offer. The sameold storyline and outdated execution will disappoint you completely. All those who want to see some glimpses of the London city can give this film a shot, rest can take it easy.
