Oneindia - Ramana's Rating: 3
Yeto Vellipoyindi Manasu has superb performance by Nani
and Samantha and sound technical elements. But its dragging
narration kills the viewers' interest.
Rediff - Radhika Rajamani's Rating: 3
Yeto Vellipoyindi Manasu is packaged with all the right
ingredients - a fairly good and sensitive screenplay, fine
performances by the lead pair, Nani and Samantha, melodious music
by the maestro Ilaiyaraja and decent production values. The film is
largely relatable. Yet it is very slow paced and this seems to be
the main deterrent.
Hindu - Sangeetha Devi Dundoo's Review
Watch Yeto Vellipoyindi Manasu with the person you
love, for there may be many moments you would relate to. A wee bit
of patience would help. Stay with the pace of the film and it will
reward you with some fine moments in the latter half.
Times of India - Karthik Pasupulate's Rating: 3.5
The movie unfolds at a pace of its own and has very few
whistle-moments and has loads of drama. So long as you don't go to
the movie expecting another Ye Maya Chesave, you will be
Sify's Rating: 3.25
Yeto Vellipoyindhi Manasu is a realistic and modern
love story from director Gautham Menon. Samantha steals the show
with her performance, by delivering her best to date. Nani's
performance in the climax scenes have made the movie more
believable. Though slow pace is the problem in the movie, second
half is its soul. Have patience, and you will be rewarded.
Gulte's Rating: 3.5
Yeto Vellipoyindi Manasu doesn't have any story. It is
just a journey of a couple who come across different situations in
their life. Like every Guatham movie, this also moves at its own
pace. It hardly moves at times and gets stuck to one point more
than once. That may not go down well with the audiences who hate
watching slow romantic films.
Super Good Movies' Rating: 3.5
Gautham Menon truly deserves the entire credit for his tight
screenplay and awesome narration. Best thing about Yeto Vellipoindi
Manasu. Soundtrack composed by Ilaiyaraaja. Nani as usual does the
role in his style. Samantha is gorgeous in the movie and she pulled
off three distinct roles with much ease and her expressions are
Bharat Student's Rating: 2.75
The film takes off on a rather slow note and it takes some time
to get into the mood. The interval scene was quite lengthy and had
few technical hiccups. But the second half gets into some movement
and builds the required emotion. As always, the climax was the best
part in the entire film. Overall, this is a film which will appeal
to those who are in love and who have loved. At the Box Office, it
could be an average to below average grosser.
Post Noon - Hemanth Kumar's Rating: 3.5
The pace of narration is slow, but if you overlook that aspect,
you'll see what a fine film it is. It's a must-watch if you are a
sucker for romance.
123 Telugu's Rating: 3.5
This movie is not a patch on Gautham Menon's ‘Ye Maaya Chesave',
so don't go expecting a similar flick. If you are deeply in love,
you may find Yeto Vellipoyindhi Manasu to be an OK flick.
But for regular movie goers, the film is too slow to offer any real
entertainment. Samantha's gorgeous looks and brilliant performance
are assets for the movie. But is it enough to save the film at the
Box Office? That needs to be seen.
