Sanjay (Allu Arjun) is a lead guitarist and he has got a band in Spain. Akanksha (Catherine Tresa) is the loving daughter of Union Minister (Rao Ramesh), who comes to Spain for higher studies. . While settling down in her new apartment, Akanksha finds a diary and two new characters, Sanjay and Komali (Amala Paul) come into her life. What is the relation between Sanjay and Komli ? How does Akanksha enter their life? Whom will Sanjay marry? All these elements form the rest of the Iddarammayilatho story.
Iddarammayilatho movie opens on an interesting note with Rao Ramesh’s satire on media. Catherine leaves for Spain where she meets Allu Arjun and the first song has been choreographed well. Director Puri Jagannath handled the parallel stories in a convincing way throughout the first. Especially the love chemistry between Allu Arjun and Amala Paul is good. Lot of hype was given for fight master Kecha before the release of the film. First 2 fights were very ordinary but the interval action episode has been brilliantly composed.
Devi Prasad’s music, Puri Jagannath’s dialogues, Allu Arjun’s stylish appearance, Brahmanandam’s comedy, Amala Paul’s performance and Catherine’s glamour made first half look good.
After a very good first half, one will definitely think that second half of the movie might on the same note. But thing’s turned quite opposite. The comedy track between Ali and Brahmanandam was boring, so was the film, with predictable scenes. A major twist is revealed to the audience before the interval and thereafter nothing will sound interesting as the hero starts his hunt for the villain and the film becomes a revenge drama all of a sudden. Thanks for the Top Lechipodhi song, which appears in the movie while the pace is low and Allu Arjun, Catherine made the song look much better with their moves. The twist in the climax makes the film somewhat interesting but it will be followed by a routine fight sequence.
Ten out of ten for Puri Jagannath as a dialogue writer. His writing abilities are the major asset for the film. Devi Sri Prasad’s music and BGM is good. Cinematography by Amol Rathod is fine. SR Sekhar has done his job as an editor. Production values of Parameswara Arts banner are grand. All the choreographers needs to be appreciated as each and every song was well composed.
Allu Arjun has done justice for his tag Stylish Star. He looked super cool in the film and his dances are wonderful. Amala Paul looked apt for the traditional girl character and she did her job. Catherine Tresa filled the entire movie with her glamour and she is a visual treat. Brahmanandam has once again entertained as Phidel Bramha. Ali’s Mental Krishna episode can be chopped off. Rao Ramesh has a brief role but made his presence felt.
Allu Arjun, Catherine Tresa
Boring comedy in second half
Slow Second half
Final Word : Watching Iddarammayilatho for Lead Actor’s performances and Puri Jagannath’s dialogues.
Iddarammayilatho Rating: 2.75/5
