The movie may be atypical love story, with the spectator knowing beforehand what the wrap up would be, but the journey in the second hour specifically is pleasurable, with Prabhu and writer Shiraz Ahmed blending episodes to cater to every strata of the movie-going audience.
On the whole, RAMAIYA VASTAVAIYA is a simplistic love story narrated competently. Besides, the chemistry between the lead actors, the gripping second hour and of course, the Hit musical score should contribute to its triumph. Recommended!
If the plot reeks of Bollywood of the 1980s, it isn’t surprising at all: Ramaiya Vastavaiya, Prabhu Deva’s remake of his debut Telugu hit, owes its primary inspiration to Maine Pyar Kiya. Yes, this wine is that stale. No wonder it stinks.
Watch Ramaiya Vastavaiya only if you have the stomach for unbridled lunacy.
