Mumbai lass and Former Miss India 2012 Contestant Erica Fernandes, who is making her Sandalwood debut, is paired opposite the Power Star in the film.

Puneet As A Lover Boy After Two Years
After Paramathma in 2011, Puneet Rajkumar is back with a love story and also as a lover boy after two years.
Technically, the movie is very rich. This will give you a different experience all over, which we have never seen on Kannada screen before.
Main Highlight Of Ninnindale
Romantic songs, wonderful cinematography, an amazing on-screen chemistry between Puneet and Erica are the main highlights of Ninnindale.
Sky Diving Scene
Sky Diving scene, which is featured on Puneet and Erica is a feast for eyes with stunning visuals. It is no less than the sky diving scene of Bollywood movie Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara.
Music scored by Telugu music director Mani Sharma has already caught the attention of the moviegoers. The background score is perfectly mixed with the story. 'Neenu iruvaga,' which is a sensational hit, is our pick.
Puneet Rajkumar is an actor, who gets into the skin of the character. As he can create magic by sharing best on-screen chemistry with the heroines of his movies, he has repeated the same in Ninnindale with Erica.
Erica Fernandes is impressive in her acting and looks. She also shares best chemistry with Puneet Rajkumar, which will make us to just fall in love with the pair. No doubt if she bags second offer with Puneet like Ramya and Parvathy Menon in coming days.
Though the movie has Telugu ace comedian Brahmanandam and Sandalwood's comedy master Sadhu Kokila, there is a mere importance given to comedy. Compared to Brahmi, Sadhu is successful in making the audience laugh.
The excellent star cast in the supporting roles is the power booster for the movie. Vinayak Joshi has done a magic in the comedy part, which reminds us his combination with Puneet in Appu. Thilak Shekar's role as an US cop is flawless. Sonia Deepti, Avinash and Padma Vasanthi's performance are commendable in the movie.
The movie is filled with many patriotic dialogues. Here are few sample, 'Aaa desha antha hodaaga, alli avar thara irbeku, mansu Indian aaagirbeku (Which ever country you go change your life-style according to them, but be Indian in your heart)'. 'Desha andaaga bhaaratha, rajya andre karnataka, bhaashe andre k kannada, kannadigaru bega serthaare (Best country means India, best state means Karnataka, best language means Kannada, and Kannadigas are easy going)'.
Director Jayant C Paranji
Though Ninnindale is directed by Tollywood's famous director Jayant C Paranji, the influence of Telugu movies is not seen in any corner of the movie. He has mixed Ninnindale with all the necessary ingredients, but he has not given that much importance to the story.
Ninnindale is a packed family entertainer filled with all the necessary ingredients, expect story. It includes simple and cute love story, thrilling adventurous scenes and melodious songs. First half is good, and slow pace in the second half is the biggest drawback of the film. Overall it is one time watchable with your loved ones.
