What's there in this movie?.

The whole plot is about the childhood memories of one writter named Lakshmi Narayana Malgudi,to make this interesting they added one female lead to help that writter to revisit his memories in his home town Malgudi.

The best part of the movie is that school love story of that writter,this is only the absorbing and engaging part of the movie.

Vijay Raghavendra played that writter roles as Lakshmi Narayana Malgudi.a okayish acting but it not much perfectly fits to him mainly that makeup.

The songs are above average and one or two songs are really good and connects the emotions of the memories.

The female lead by Greesha Sridhar as Prakruti is good and well acted.

The cinematography and the photography works are really good that captured the malgudi and its surroundings nicely.

The dialogues are melodramatic,convincing and usual one that we have heard in many childhood memory movies.

What's not there in this movie?.

Firstly, this is extremely dramatic movie with some outdated contents we have watched in many times in many movies,i don't know why they taken this kind of school and college memories movies repetatively.

The other worst thing of this movie is that makeup of oldman getup,it is fully awfull one.

The length of this movie is also very long like 2hrs 34mins and slow moving screenplay made us to think moving of 30mins as 3hrs in this movie.

The romance scenes are not much engaging and the break up scene is undigestable without any perfect reason.

I will definetely say, you won't have that much patience to watch just 1hr of this movie,because it is a slow moving one with a drag of many unnecessary scenes.

The slow motion shots in romance and love songs its really a worst and pathetic one,fully ruined the movie to short film range.

Star performance:

It fits to Vijay Raghavendra.

Mainly in that school memory story,because it is only the best and moving part of this movie.

Story line:

The story line of this movie is,hero was a writter in Banglore left his village in childhood for one religion riot because of him.After his wife dies,his daughter called him also to America but he refused her proposal to America and ran away from his home.

On the way to Majestic Bus stand,he also met another girl who also came to outing for to relieve her office stress.

That girl helped hero to visit his home town and his childhood crush after a long time.

Inbetween this scenes there is a conversation of both their memories like hero's childhood school love and his old memories and that girl's love and the break up story.


This a old and outdated content with the painting of  few new scenes,but could still have been better.
