Sekhar Kammula is now back with some refreshing entertainer with all fresh actors and a few branded starlets. Let’s see whether he meets our expectations.
Life is Beautiful Story
The movie is set in the backdrop of a residential colony and the story is all about Srinu (Abhijit) who comes to the colony along with his two sisters to stay in his uncles house for an year following the instructions given by his mother (Akkineni Amala). In a very short time, he make friends with Nagaraj (Sudakar) and Kaushik who is a gadget wizard. All these boys come from a middle class family and will have tiffs with rich boys who live at a nearby posh colony.
Meanwhile, all these three boys fall in love with Paddu (Shagun), Lakshmi (Zara) and Paru (Shriya) respectively. What happens from there and how they face various experiences will form the rest of the story.
Abhijit was OK and he is a bit weak in performance wise. H owever, he had the innocent face with a special charm that gets him closer to the youth.
Kaushik reminds us of Tyson in Happy days with his dialogues and characterization. He is surely a lucky guy as he got the chance to romance Shriya right in his debut.
Sudhakar was definitely the showstealer. With his ease in front of camera and Telangana ascent, he reminds us of “Nikhil” in Happy days.
Coming to the heroines, Shagun looks cute and expressive with her beautiful smile while Zara is sexy but stiff in few sequences.
Amala and Anjala Zaveri have very less roles but they made their presence felt. Shriya is awesome with her beauty, screen presence and expressions. She fitted her role apt.
Rashmi, Surekha Vani, CVL Narasimha Rao are upto the mark. All the actors who did the rich kids role were apt.
Life is Beautiful Movie Highlights
- Second Half
- Technical Values
- Mother scene in climax
- First half
Sekhar Kammula is pretty good at dealing this kind of subjects and he definitely reached the audience expectations. Although, there are few scenes that remind you of “Happy Days”, the movie is entirely fresh and all the characters are etched properly. Instead of the Senior Vs Junior in Happy Days, this time Sekhar Kammula came up with Rich boys vs B-Grade boys.
He used some brand actors like Amala, Anjala Zaveri and Shriya to fill the gap. Shriya’s beauty worked strongly.
Overall, the film will score a hit as it is clean, refreshing and it has all the ingredients that’re sufficient enough to pull the audience (youth as well as families) to the theatres.
Final Verdict: It is beautiful.
