The film is set in Kolkata backdrop where Surya (Sharwanand) tries to woo a medico Vaishali (Sai Pallavi) telling that someone is following her and loving her. In this process, she also becomes curious to know about the unknown person and finally, she knows the truth and in turn develops feelings for Surya. When all is going well both will have heated argument and Surya declares break up. Here the story takes new turn and Surya will have some backstory. What is the exact reason for break up? What is the behind story of Surya? How they solve the problems? What happens in the end? Forms the rest story.
Sharwanand as Surya is simply superb he is looking handsome in the film with trendy costumes. His body language is impressive and performance wise also he did a good job. Sai Pallavi is superb as usual in a medico role. She definitely once again steals the hearts with her performance and expressions.
Murali Sharma is good in his role. Vennela Kishore a worthy mention he evokes laughs in his every scene. Priyadarshi, Sunil, and others did decent performances.
The production values of the film are good and have provided the best. Music scored by Vishal Chandrasekhar is pleasant. Already a few songs are chartbusters. His background scores added value to the plot. Cinematography by Jay Kay is superb especially showcasing the Kolkata backdrop is the beauty of the film. Dialogues are good. Editing done by Sreekar Prasad is decent. The film has a perfect runtime. Coming to the direction Hanu Raghavapudi did a decent job but the film could have been more conventional and entertaining.
- Lead Pair performances
- Beautiful locations
- Bit dull second half
- Lack of depth in the story
On a whole, Padi Padi Leche Manasu is an average romantic entertainer with a beautiful performance by the lead roles. Sharwanand and Sai Pallavi on-screen chemistry are amazing and the main highlight of the film. The first half of the film takes off on a decent note but later in the proceedings lacks its depth. The second half of the film is a bit dull and a few episodes are not convincing. Hanu Raghavapudi did a good job showcasing the love and the chemistry between the lead pair but failed with the remaining part. The conflict between the lead pair and the proceeding in the second half are not convincing. Overall, a one-time watchable film for the kind of love track and the chemistry shown between the lead pair.
Bottom Line: Watch it for Sharwa and Sai Pallavi.
