Overall, 1000 Abaddalu is not a usual romantic entertainer of director Teja. Except for a few dragging scenes, the movie is a good entertainer, which can be watched and enjoyed once.
Though Teja always says that he wants to make ‘different’ films, he ends up making routine flicks. 1000 Abaddalu can be watched only for Naga Babu. Otherwise, there is nothing much for the viewer in this film.
When compared with his previous films, Sairam's acting is bearable in this. Esther will make for a good toughie role, a la Nikisha Patel of Komaram Puli fame. Technically, the film passes muster. In several scenes, the sets look artificial.
Verdict: Oddball wit that becomes second-rate in many places.
