Due to the heavy pressure given by his mother and sisters to get married, Sam decides to make them believe that family life will not work out for him. So, he books a waitress named Avantika and asks her to act as his girlfriend. When they fix their marriage, Avantika should break the relationship and move out – this is his plan. But, due to a small mistake made by Sam, the entire setup had gone wrong and Sam blinks. How did Sam make things, right? Watch the film in theaters.
Nagarjuna performs well and he looks damn smart. Surely, he is the competitor to his sons! Rakul comes as a glam doll and yet, she performs well too.
The story is not new, but everything depends on the screenplay and the execution. Rahul Ravindran penned the screenplay well and it is good in the first half. The star selection is superb and everyone fits in the role well. Vennela Kishore and Nagarjuna’s chemistry worked out well. The second half moves a bit slow. Yes, the narration was better in the first half. A couple of scenes make the family audience feel embarrassed to watch with kids. Those scenes should have been avoided. The film should have been trimmed in the second half to avoid the boring feel. The music, cinematography and the production values are good.
What’s Not There?
If the makers had avoided certain unwanted scenes, this romantic entertainer would have definitely been a family entertainer.
