(Yuvaraj) and Vennela (Kamna Jetmalani) fall in love.
But parents reject their love. With no other option
left, they attempt suicide by jumping from the top floor
of a building. Luckily, they were saved as they fall
in sand. But, they suffer memory loss. The doctors term
this disorder as 'retrograde amnesia' (brain injury
in which the individual loses memories for the time
period just prior to the injury (depends on few minutes
to several years)). The rest of the story is all about
how they get united again though technically they do
not know each other.
heroine Kamna Jetmalani
appears promising. Hero Yuvaraj
is average. Another hero Rishi
Girish is not up to the mark. Abhinaya
Sri sizzled in an item song. Sana
is adequate as the stringent mother. Ahuti
Prasad is good as hero's father. Among the friends,
Rambabu evoked some humor.
The comedy track of Brahmanandam
is partly good.
Story of the film is about how a couple that has fallen
in love forget everything due to memory loss and how
they remap their feelings. The basic story point is
novel. We can find similar kind of storyline in "Eternal
Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" (2004) where the
lovers meet again as strangers after their memory is
- direction: When one takes such a delicate storyline,
it is extremely important to have competent screenplay
and sensible direction. The screenplay of the film falls
short. Narration of the film is pretty slow. Director
Jaya who made a promising debut with Chantigadu could
not handle this subject well. There is one shot where
heroine warning hero is compared to that of teacher
warning student, which is good.
departments: Music by Sajan Madhav is adequate.
Amani Koyila and Nuvvuchoope choopu oka varam are good
on the screen. Cinematography by Vijaya Sri is good.
There are few shots with sunset background which are
shot well. Editing needs lot of improvement. Dialogues
are mediocre ("manishiko mata. kukkako BATA"
is good). Production values of the film are adequate.
First half of the film is little boring. Second half
is slightly better. The plus points of the film are
novel story line and heroine. The negative points are
lack of establishment of feel and inadequate screenplay.
On a whole, Premikulu - made with a novel point - does
not live it up.
