Freshness in the making of the movie
Chemistry between Varun and Raashi
Aditya's inconsistent characterization in the latter half
Emotional drive in the second half
Varun Tej is showing very good signs of improvement from one movie to another. Post Fidaa, he seem matured and responsible about his craft and definitely wins a good number of marks both from the critics and audience. His tryst with dance is appreciable as well.
Raashi Khanna stands out in the flick as she is backed with an excellent characterization. Raashi's expressions in romantic scenes would be a major pull and is sure to be a crush for many young male fans.
Priyadarshi, the latest talent has been gifted with a lengthy character but unfortunately, has not been complimented with a good writing.
The rest of the cast have done justice to their roles.
Venky Atluri's writing and direction are the sure big pull for the flick. With better opportunities and self-nurturing sessions, Venky has great potential in earning a bigger name in the industry. His dialogues are one good thing which holds the attention of the audience.
Cinematography by George C Williams of Raja Rani Fame, is a major asset of Tholi Prema.
S Thaman's songs and background music are a major plus of the package. The title track, be it the musical rendition or the visualization stands out.
Tholi Prema is a decent watch for this weekend and especially, for the youth and family audiences.
