Michael Velayudham has settled in Italy after he completed his MBA in India. He is an womaniser, who has no great opinion on long-standing relationship. Once, he falls in love with Meera Sastry (Trisha). They move together intimately for about two years. But circumstances make her to go to India and she tells Micky that it may take one or two years to return. As he was apprehensive about waiting, they both decide to break and throw a big break-up party and happily separate
After they parted ways, Micky falls in love with an Italian girl and visits India as a tourist with that girl and meets Meera. By that time, Meera was about to marry a politician called Sudhir (Sonu Sood). She tells Micky to leave the place as she could not forget him. Micky leaves the place and decide to return to Italy. Will she marry the politician? Will Michael-Meera reconcile their relationship? Will Michael ditch his Italian girl? Answers to these questions form the interesting part of the story.
Pawan Kalyan has maintained comedy timing in delivering the dialogues with perfect precision. Trisha impresses the audiences with her cute smile and delivered adequate performance, whenever she got an opportunity during emotional scenes. She has also filled the glamour slot. Kriti Karbandha is okay and looked like a doll. She needs to improve a lot in showing expressions and body language. Paresh Rawal has done a decent job, while Sonu Sood, who had so far played the roles as a baddie, has got a decent character in this film. The Italian girl Donna also looked hot. Ali, though had a brief presence on the screen has done his best to tickle the funny bones. Other artistes like Harish, Arundhati Aravind, Tanikella Bharani, MS Narayana, Viswanath Kasi, Mukesh Rishi, Pragati have done justice to their roles.
Cinematography by Vincent is extraordinary and he has captured the beauty of foreign locales and places in Varanasi perfectly with his camera. Though, the film is the remake of a successful Bollywood film Love Aaj Kal, the director Jayant C Paranji has moulded the subject excellently on the celluloid and he is aptly assisted by Trivikram Srinivas, who has penned the screenplay and dialogues for the movie. Mani Sharma’s music is good. The director has chosen to elevate the hero’s character unlike the original, where the heroine dominated certain scenes. Editing is neat and impressive.
The film is about a clash between the current and the past generation. The audience in B, C centres may find it difficult to understand the movie at parts due to the jumbling of scenes, which highlight the present and past generation. Moreover, the use of Italian language by the hero for most part of the first half may confuse the audience. However, the film would run well in A centres and it is worth a watch.
