The story is about a guitarist Sanju Reddy (Allu Arjun). He is a lead guitarist for a band based in Spain. Then comes Akanksha (Catherine Tresa), a rich kid of an Indian politician, who comes to Spain for higher studies. She is drawn to this particular diary in Spain. The reason for this interest is because of the love-story of the previous owner of this diary. The owner being Komali Sankarabharanam (Amala Paul). And yes, the love-story is about Sanju and Komali.
The establishing of the main characters is done very subtly and very believably. Akanksha who is very moved by their story get very attached to the characters. And when she comes across Sanju in person, she is naturally drawn to him. The director deserves appreciation at this point for achieving very good non-forced acting from the actors.
When Akanksha finds out the story of Sanju and Komali ended abruptly, she demands explanation. Akanksha realises the beautiful story she loves has a very tragic ending. Akanksha starts developing feelings towards Sanju. She even proposes to him.
The story gets interesting after this. Does Sanju accept Akanksha's love? What was the tragic love-story? What happened to Komali? Forms the rest of the movie.
What to expect: The over-all look of the movie is very clean. Heavy heroic dialogues which have the tendency to weigh a viewer down is excused and very natural and subtle dialogues and acting is a breath of fresh air in the movie.
Acting from Allu Arjun and Catherine Tresa are a definite plus in the movie. Though a little more was expected from Amala Paul, she seemed a bit too timid in the character. The music and choreography was impressive, though Allu Arjun's dancing took a back seat. Placing of songs are very good and the cinematography of the movie is very good too.

Allu Arjun Magic Again
Allu Arjun has proved himself yet again. He has succeeded in making the character believable and very honest. He has given heroism a very subtle and very natural feel. Action from Allu Arjun was definitely impressive. He did a very good job at coming up with a innovative technique to bash up the bad guys.
Amala Paul A little Too Subtle
Amala Paul's acting took a side step with all the attention going to Catherine, maybe the expectation from her was a lot higher. Her character could have been a lot better, there definitely was a good scope for it.
Bramhanandam and Ali though have their own charm , the overall comedy part of the movie was a little disappointing.
Devi Sri Prasad Very Good At His Job
Music from Devi Sri Prasad was very refreshing. With the songs placed perfectly. It gave the audience a very happy feel. Chiranjeevi songs was a huge plus. The reaction to the songs were naturally electrifying.
