Finding Nemo meets Maine Pyar Kiya
Bommarillu is dressed to the nine's with novelties that makes it tick... and boy o boy - they work big time! Presentation is the key differentiator, otherwise the story is a tried & tested formula in Indian cinema since the medium itself.
Siddharth: After Rang De, the expectations run high and he does surpass them. Consistent performer indeed.
Genelia: An apt choice and has all the coy looks to carry the role effortlessly. Very promising.
Prakash Raj: Luckily he does not succumb to reprising "I care a hoot about the camera" attitude. Hence the restrained performance works for the movie playing the "I decide for you" father.
Jaya Sudha:: Small role but effective.
Kota, Subramaniam Dharmavarapu, Suneel, Brahmanandam & Tanikella Bharani:: Adequate
Songs are hummable. Foreign locales are beautiful and Hyderabad never looked so appealing!!
Bhaskar the director:: Our "Da man" has mastered the 4-P's of marketing spot-on.
PS: Last time the tag-line "Love makes life beautiful...." was used in Mahesh Bhatt's "Aashiqui " 1990.
