Story: Its a love story weaved between Aditya(Varun tej) and Varsha(Raashi Khanna) in different phases of their life.Thier Love track in Intermediate college, an engineering college and at workplace showcases their bonding and misunderstandings.How these different phase emotions presented on screen are to be watched out on screen.
Analysis: Tholi Prema, stands up to its title with its cool n emotional execution. At places, the narration went slow and routine, but the dialogues hold each scene very tightly.The main plot has traces of Nani, Samantha’s ‘Yeto Velli Poyindi Manasu’, yet the narration gone completely in a different way.
Varun Tej as Adi gave a good performance. He looked hefty in few scenes. Maybe a much leaner Raashi made him looked so? He looked uber cool just like in Fidaa, shown maturity in emotional scenes.
Raashi Khanna is the show stealer. She looked fresh n beautiful in each scene. Her lovely presence as a teenage girl in introduction scene is adorable.She excelled in both as a cute college girl and matured working woman.
Thaman’s music was good., carries fresh feel in “Ee Varshaniki” song and bitter pain in “Tholi Prema” song. Allasani Vari Padyama stands third in his works. Remaining were pass on.Background score was good in emotional scenes.Overall, Thaman did a neat job.
Director Venky Atulri had few good handful scenes and went on to work with them. Thus, only those scenes worked well, remaining were shown very normal on screen. If he had worked on those scenes too, Tholi Prema could have been on par with original Tholi Prema.
Production Values were good. The cinematography was good in some places.Editing could have been better in the second half.
On Final Note, Tholi Prema could reach the right audience for its youthful content. A little more entertainment would have worked wonders for this movie. But routine second half killed the magic.Still., watch it for Raashi’s cute outing and lead pair’s awesome chemistry.
Bottomline: Cool Adi, Cute Varsha., Few Lovely Sparks!
