No ardent south Indian movie buff will forget the Malayalam movie Premam. It is one of the best feel-good films and left an indelible impression in the minds of the audiences. The youngsters accepted it with open arms due to the beautiful romantic element in it. Now Premam is being remade in Telugu by making certain changes to suit the Telugu audiences. Let’s see how this film has turned out to be.


The movie is interspersed with romance and fun elements but that’s not the main focus of it. It has something more to offer to the viewers. The movie takes us through the life of an individual through different phases. Watch the film to enjoy its beauty.

Star Performances

Naga Chaitanya should be applauded for his effortless performance. He surprises us with his three characters and one should watch the movie to understand this. Shruti Haasan looks beautiful on screen and has done justice to the role of Malar. Her track is one of the assets of the film. Madonna Sebastian and Anupama Parameswaran (who do their same roles from the original) do what is required of them. Nagarjuna and Venkatesh appears in special roles and give a superb act. Praveen, Chaitanya Krishna and Prudhvi are ok in their roles.


The vision of the director Chandoo Mondeti has born fruits with the execution keeping in mind the audience who has not watched the original Premam. The movie takes one back in the memory lane and has fun moments too.

What’s there?

  • The plot is the major asset of the film. So is the screenplay.
  • The cinematography deserves special mention.
  • Songs are intertwined well along with the plot.
  • The first half of Premam is crisp and highly interesting.
  • Music by Rajesh Pillai and Gopi Sunder is quite good. Few songs are retained from the original.

What’s not there?

Considering the expectations the movie could have been executed even better.


Those who have not seen the original will thoroughly enjoy the film. For those who watched the original it works in bits and pieces.
