Life is Beautiful movie review highlights
All the characters are introduced to the audiences in a typical Sekhar Kammula style
Amala makes a pleasing entry (with Rashmi and Abhijeet) in an introduction scene in a train and Shriya Saran looks beautiful in the middle-class neighbourhood scenes.
The colony set erected by 'Padmasri' Thota Tharani is impressive
Anjala Zaveri as Maya, makes a dazzling entry and is seen doing a dance in the rain
The simple yet effective dialogues are impressive. The costumes too stay true to character and reflect the Telugu culture.
The romantic track between Paddu and Abhijith is well shot
Nagaraj's dialogues in Telangana slang and characterization is praiseworthy
Although Amala's character has a lot of emotional scope, her role is very brief.
The film is filled with multiple emotions just like in Happy Days, but the narrative is much more slow in this flick.
Watch out for the comic scenes between Abhi and Paru (Shreya) and Shriya Saran's surprise lip lock with Abhi.
While Vijay's cinematography brings out the flavours and colours in this family entertainer, Mickey J Meyer's music and background score adds to the mood.
The director was successful in extracting good performances from the youngsters.
Sekhar is undoubtedly an expert when it comes to portraying the most delicate emotions in a classy manner. He succeeds in capturing the innocence of adolescence, but the pace of the storytelling is slow, particularly towards the second half.
