The performances of the female leads in the film are appreciable than the male leads. Vanditha and Ala had done a good performance and it is quite natural too.
The script is not new. But, if the makers have chosen, better male leads, it might have impressed the audiences. The cinematography and the music are good. The screenplay should have been designed better. The production values are good.
What’s Not There?
Orange Valley could not be pointed out as a single genre, as the director starts with one genre and travels with the other. Romance and Naxalism are mixed up in the story. Although this is not a must watch, you could try the film, if you don’t have anything to watch!
