Earlier, director R Chandru and actor Ajay Kumar combo has made the movie Taj Mahal, which was a love story with different angle and it was a hit movie. Now, duo has teamed up again for the movie Prem Kahani. As the title itself suggests, this movie is also a love story, but with different definition to love.
Most of the movies deal with the subject love and end with a happy note without giving any message. These movies entertain the new generation. While doing so, unknowingly, they misguide youths. But R Chandru-Ajay combo’s second venture Prem Kahani is a movie with an important message to younger generation especially, for those who neglect their parents while choosing their life partners. When compared to Taj Mahal, the movie Prem Kahani is very closer to reality.
The story is the first hero of the movie. The highlights of the movie are Ajay and Sheela’s acting, Ilayaraja’s music, Chandru's dialogues and Chandrashekhar's cinematography. The weaknesses of the movie are editing and narration of story in the second half.
