Analysis: Director should be given the credit for making this movie a family watch movie. Though being a youth story he took precautions not to include overboard romantic scenes. He showcased the current trend and mentality of youth. Few scenes were close to the reality as they were based on real-life incidents. The best thing about this film is that it is not boring. Even though all the actors were new they did well. Especially Anish Chandra fits the bill. The story of a man who lost his leg for love is heart touching. Few comedy scenes were too good. On top of everything, it surprises everyone that this movie is shot on iPhone. When the budget for movie making is sky-rocketing, this movie team shot the movie on iPhone and released the movie deserves an applause.
Performance: Anish Chandra did very well. Pavani’s acting skills were better in this movie compared to her previous movies. Raju, Rani characters in the second half were good. The rest of the cast was okay.
Technical aspects: Though the story is old school, the director handled this well. Their efforts are to be appreciated for making this movie through iPhone. Production values are adequate.
Finally: Lovers club is okay
