Naga Chaitanya’s new film Premam is the remake of the classic hit Malayalam film with the same title Premam, and is produced by Naga Vamsi under Sithara Entertainments banner. This is second film for director Chandoo Mondeti, who delivered a successful film like Karthikeya earlier. Dig in to the detailed review to see how this film fared at box office.
The story showcases the life story of a person in three different stages and the consequences he faces and how his life turns with each passing phase. The story is slightly changed at few places to suit the emotions of Telugu audience, and the director has successfully adapted the original version without disturbing the plot.
Naga Chaitanya has tasted success with every romantic entertainer he has taken up on screen and Premam joins the list. Naga Chaitanya’s portrayal of three different time frames and three different characters is a treat to watch and he surprised everyone with his performance. Right from a 16 year old young guy, to arrogant student in college with a crush over his teacher to the next stage where he settles in life as a chef, Naga Chaitanya surely excelled at his roles and delivered matured performance. Anupama Parameswaran looked cute and had a good scope to perform, just like in the original film. Shruthi Hassan delivered her best too and Madonna Sebastian has more screen time and role than the original film and she did a great job on screen. Venkatesh and Nagarjuna stood as special attraction in the film.
The one aspect of the film that steals the show is definitely the heart warming music. Like any romantic story, music is the backbone of the film and Gopi Sundar and Rajesh Murugesan did a great job with songs and background music and is one of the highlights for the film. Karthik’s cinematography surely impresses and his talented work is evident in the scenes shot in Goa. Senior editor Kotagiri Venkateswara Rao did a good job at editing, and the production values of Sithara Entertainments are good. The director delivered a great film, despite this being his second venture. However, screenplay could have been worked better as the film seemed to be slow paced at times. Comedy seemed decent but could have been better. King Nagarjuna’s voice over is the major highlight for the film.
