Puri fans will be disappointed with one more 'not up to the mark' film from their favourite director. You can safely give this a miss until DVD arrives.
Varun (Nithin) is a happy go lucky guy who bumps in to Hyathi in Spain. Hyathi comes there to help her friend Priya in her love marriage. Varun falls for her instantly and begins to chase her. After some initial aversion, she falls for him only to learn that he has no feeling for her except a one hour kiss. Rest of the story is how their relation develops and how the story ends in peace.
The role of Varun is tailor made for Nithin and he sweeps in to it effortlessly. He seem to have matured a lot as an actor in all the departments. Adah Sharma makes a decent debut both glamour and performance wise. Brahmanandham did reasonable justice while Ali totally let down the comedy department. Rest of the characters were okay.
Coming to the technical departments, Puri once again failed to chose a good story for his film. The film lacks the emotional bonding with audience taking out all the seriousness out of it. He also tumbles in the screenplay especially after some time in the first half and it is a total smash in the second.
Anup Rubens proved his mettle with good songs and back ground score. Amol Rathod's camera work is picturesque and he managed to capture the locales of Spain very well. Puri Jagannadh's touring talkies production values are good.
At the end, Puri fans will be disappointed with one more 'not up to the mark' film from their favourite director. You can safely give this a miss until DVD arrives.
