Premam – The story packs with the love of three different stages of Vikram – Naga Chaitanya. Taking two leaps, of five and ten years each time it describes the joys and the rejection.
As a 16-something, Vicky falls in love with Suma (Anupama Parameswaran). A short-lived love story, it’s punctuated with three songs Before he knows, the story comes to a halt. The guys life moves on. A five year later, Vikram is now a bearded, gutsy college youngster keeping the same friends. The backbencher with a devil may care attitude falls for lecturer Sitara (Shruti Haasan), a half Marathi. This story too is doomed and this time, the reason is more painful than disturbing.
At present Vikram is a star chef .This time, the style quotient has moved northwards, with a moustache to boot. Here comes Sindhu (Madonna), who dashes into the ordinarily looking Vicky’s life by reciting a poem. The third love will it succeed forms the rest of the story.
The remake of classical Malayalam movie Premam the film is more breezy and emotional. If you have set a high bar like the Malayalam style Premam the comedy is what you get in Telugu Premam. Be prepared to lower your expectation. Situational comedy is rib tickling. A faithful remake. The music (Rajesh Murugesan and Gopi Sundar) is enjoyable. One of the career best performances by Chaitanya comedy is nice. A fairly entertaining movie if the expectation is less.
Overall it is a faithful remake and hilarious a can watch movie.
