Three years after the release of Ye Maaya Chesave, Gautham Menon's next Telugu venture Yeto Vellipoyindi Manasu has hit the marquee today. It is yet another good family entertainer and the director once again tries to entertain you with a fresh and young love story, which many of us can relate to our real life.
Yeto Vellipoyindi Manasu is an interesting romance drama and the chemistry between Nani and Samantha is the main highlight of the movie. Ilayaraja's melodious music, Gautham's enchanting story and dialogues, MS Prabhu's wonderful cinematography, amazing choreography of songs and beautiful locales are its other attractions.
The movie revolves around the story of a middle class guy and a rich girl. Director Gautham Menon narrates their love story in three different phases of life - school, college and life after that. The director has a very good grip over the happening on the screens. The first half of the movie is bit interesting, but in the second half, the viewers feel stuck somewhere in the middle as a few sentimental sequences drag. But the climax is amazing and it should be watched on screen.
Nitya (Samanta) and Varun (Nani) fall in love in the school days and break up. They reunite in the college days and break up again on some reason. They unite again but their ways go apart while shaping up their career. Whether they succeed in their love or break up in moulding their career due to their family obligations? This must be seen onscreen.

What kind of ego and selfishness they show in the process? What are the other human emotions that included in their journey of love? Answers to all these questions form the climax. The entire film appears to be bits and pieces. Yes, it is hard to edit the film and the editor of the film too could not join the film and jumped at many scenes leaving the audiences in quandary and grope in dark.
Of all the artists, it is Samanta who grabs the attention of the audiences most. Whether it is in a school girl, or as a college girl or a most-learned adult who is working as a social-worker, she appears very glamorous. At the same time, she has given a performance with complete maturity, especially in the climax.
Nani has also given a realistic performance. His character is quite convincing at every stage. However, Samanta's acting talent appears high at all these moments. Krishnudu makes the film live whenever he appears on screen. The dialogues penned for his character are witty and they are just one-liners yet convincing and comical. Other artists have also done complete justice to their characters.
Ilaiyaraja's music and background score are the main highlights in the technical front. He has composed eight melodious tracks. Almost every song will impress you. MS Prabhu's picturisation in song sequences is very good. He has captured some of the most beautiful locales.
Gautham's dialogues are also sure to rock. The screenplay is not so tight and the slow paced narration tests audiences' patience.
Overall, Yeto Vellipoyindi Manasu has superb performance by Nani and Samantha. But its dragging narration kills the viewers' interest.
