Boy sees girl. Falls in love. Decides to get married. There's opposition from his father who thinks she isn't the right choice for him. Guy decides to prove daddy wrong. And he does." These few lines narrate the story of several films Tollywood has produced over the years. The most memorable one would be Bommarillu and the latest film with a similar story outline would be Srirastu Subhamastu.
On top of that, it's more than 100 years of Indian cinema, and we are still to teach our filmmakers that there's a huge difference between stalking a woman and wooing her with consent. And that, readers, is the biggest turn off in this film which features yet another episode where the hero is trying to win over the woman's love by harassing her, literally (an elaborate episode where he convinces her to let him, a stranger, stay in her house). And we are supposed to look at it as a great act just because the guy justifies everything he is doing by saying a dialogue which is similar to what the heroine's dad says. Wow. What an emotion. Dear men, please understand this. When a woman is begging you not to pursue her, she means it. Aadavari matalaku arthalu veru... but not always, and surely not in this case.
