This film has a pretty simple plot. Three cousins (played by Arya, Sri Divya and Bobby Simha) end up in Bangalore for various reasons and are in love with the city.

Stand out performances come from Sri Divya and Parvathy. These two women steal the show with their credible performances.

Overall View: Though director Bommarillu Bhaskar has made an honest attempt to recreate the magic of Bangalore Days, it's more the spirit of this story that makes Bangalore Naatkal bearable.

Bangalore Naatkal is the story of three cousins, played by Arya, Sri Divya and Bobby Simha, their relationships, struggles, adaptation and pursuit of a congenial way to survive.

Parvathy and Saranya Ponvannan turn out to be the top scorers of the lot. Parvathy reproduces her charm perfectly of her character from the original and Saranya Ponvannan

Overall, despite its lively storyline, Bangalore Naatkal is let down by the treatment and casual performances.

The film is a remake of the Malayalam superhit Bangalore Days which was written and directed by Anjali Menon. It's a story of three cousins—Arjun (Arya), Kannan (Bobby Simha) and Divya (Sri Divya)—who move to Bangalore for their own reasons.

Each of the characters is different and how they deal with life takes the movie forward. The movie takes you through their struggles, what they go through in their relationships and the emotional bond between the cousins.

Watch the original film Bangalore Days in Malayalam.

The film revolves around the life of three cousins, whose childhood dreams to have a blast in the happening city of Bangalore comes true.

Parvathy plays the same role in the original and gives a fantastic performance. Saranya Ponvannan, as Kannan's mother, provides some laughs but none of the others stand out.

Remakes are never easy and director Bhaskar’s Bangalore Naatkal is far from perfect, but the film does have its moments, especially for those who missed the original.
