Director Puri Jagannadh has the talent and the skill required to carry off a Romantic Action film, but the storyline gave it away. The ideas of Puri are interesting, no doubt, but the translation is not fascinating and focusing. Puri tries to make it up with stylish execution - fine stunts - eye-filling visuals which are worth a watch, but let's not forget that an enthralling story is what a moviegoer wants at the end of the day. Everything else is secondary. The first half is with its slow pace drags along and almost half of it is spent in introducing the characters. The film catches pace as it nears the climax. The use of over fights could have been avoided a few instances. Music by Anup Rubens is excellent. Cinematography is top notch. Although Puri Jaggandh deserves some credit for handling a subject of such sensitivity, he's to be blamed as well for not giving it a satisfying execution. His effort to show Nithin Reddy as a larger than life character seems to have taken away all his concentration from the script.
Nithin Reddy delivers a good performance, although he is getting repetitive with his facial expressions. His dialogue delivery and comic timing is perfect. Adah Sharma, had a cardboard look throughout the movie and hardly managed to smile even during the song sequences. She looked much elder to Nithin. Ajaz is excellent in a few scenes while strictly average in others. Devan as father of Adah is okay. Brahmanandam comedy is the only entertainment movie has for the Telugu audience. Ali is promising in his role as Thalaivaa fan. One of the major saving graces was Ali's buffoonery and liners which made room for some genuine fun and laughter, even though crude at times.
Editing had helped the movie to a large extent with a decent first half, but sadly sagged during the latter. Music by Anup Rubens was a highlight. The numbers 'Selavanuko' and 'Ra Ra Vasthava' were hummable, while 'Nuvvu Ante Naku Istam' the favorite among the front benchers. Production values are grand.

3. Two Fights Sequences
2. Slow Narration
4. Second Half
Bottom Line: Neither a joyous love story nor a serious movie, "Heart Attack" actually stands in between.
