Aadi and Shanvi’s ‘Pyaar Mein Padipoyaane’ has released today across Andhra Pradesh. The film has been directed by Ravi Chavali, who made films like ‘Sreeemannarayana’ before. This new film is coming in with decent expectations, so let us see how it is.
Chandra alias Chinna (Aadi) and Yuktha (Shanvi) are childhood friends. Chinna and his family move out of the house and that is the end of the connection between Chinna and Yuktha, But Chinna steals something that is of great value to Yuktha and she hates him for that.
After many years, Chinna turns out to be a talented singer and he comes across Yuktha in his college. He falls for her, without realising that she is his childhood friend. Yuktha also turns out to be an aspiring singer and as a result, they soon become friends.
Chinna has a band named Crazy and he invites Yuktha as the lead singer. They come up with some good tunes and they manage to impress the heads of some music companies. Love blossoms between Chinna and Yuktha and everything is fine, until Chinna discovers that Yuktha is his childhood friend.
He also finds out that Yuktha still has bad feelings about the childhood incident. Chinna tries every trick in the book to make Yuktha forget about the childhood incident but he is not successful. He also faces opposition from Ashish, who has his own plans for Yuktha.
What happens in the end? That is the story of this film.
Plus Points :
Adi looks decent in this film and he has acted well. He is showing good improvement. Shanvi looks gorgeous in the movie and there is a right amount of innocence and vulnerability in her. She is a perfect fit for the role.
Sapthagiri, Thagubotu Ramesh and Madhu Nandan entertain with brief comedy in the second half of the film. The emotional climax scene is good to watch. The second half of this movie is much better than the first.
Some of the songs like the title song have been picturised quite nicely.
Minus Points :
Unnecessarily long run time is a big minus for the film. About 15 – 20 minutes could have been removed from the first half easily. The scenes look quite old and jaded and there is no freshness in the presentation.
Aadi and Shanvi’s love track lacks the sizzling chemistry required for a romantic entertainer. Vennela Kishore is irritating as a gay music boss.
Songs keep coming in with very little gap and they become a bit tiresome after a while. This is not the day and age where a film can be enjoyed with so many songs.
Except for a few scenes in the second half, the film generally has very little entertainment to offer to viewers.
Technical Aspects :
Cinematography is good and foreign locations have been shot nicely. Editing is ok. Anoop Rubens has done a decent job with the music and background score is also pretty effective. Dialogues are good in places.
Ravi Chavali’s direction in this movie is below average. There is nothing new in his narration style and he could not sustain the interest of viewers.
‘Pyaar Mein Padipoyaane’ is a romantic comedy that has very little romance and very little comedy. In the end, it becomes a boring and routine cinema that should have been made 10 years ago. An ok second half cannot compensate for a very slow first half.
