It's a bit hard to accept Vineeth as Nithya's father; but the actor overcomes the initial mismatch with his decent performance. Praveena, who plays Nithya's mother, has nothing much to do in the movie. Rest of the cast, including Rahul Madhav, who plays Nithya's fiance, Aju Varghese who appears in a cameo, VK Prakash etc are good in their respective roles. 

Script And Direction

Jenuse Mohamed's script brings out a usual love story in a different way. The movie which travels through the cliched situations and dialogues looks artificial at places.The director has managed to conceal the little flaws to an extent with the brilliant visualisation. In short, 100 Days Of Love is a perfect launch pad for Jenuse.

Technical Aspects

Pradheesh Varma's brilliant visuals makes the movie a perfect visual treat. The cinematographer has succeeded in bringing out the beauty and richness of Bangalore city in his frames.

Sandeep Kumar's editing is just ok; as the movie falls into low pace at places. Ajay Mangad, who handles the art direction and Sameera Saneesh, who designed the costumes deserves special mentions.
