Idhi Naa Love Story Review & Rating|
Tarun pinned his hopes of making a strong comeback with the film, Idi Naa Love Story. Directed by Ramesh Gopi, this film is a remake of the Kannada cult classic, Simple Agi Ondh Love Story. Tamil sensation Oviya Helen played the lead lady in this film. With a strong base, and co-star in limelight, can Tarun score the much needed success and make a comeback as a successful hero in Telugu Film Industry? We can see it in Idi Naa Love Story review.
The story of the film deals with two youngsters who meet up and fall in love. The story is mainly about mistaken identity. Tarun played Abhiram, an ad filmmaker. His sister makes him go on a trip to Araku Valley with hopes that he will find love with her fiancé’s sister, Shruthi. Shruthi lives in Araku Valley and Abhi goes there. He meets Abhinaya (Oviya) and he falls for her as they share their past love stories with each other when they both are together. But she is not the girl he was asked to meet. What happens when he knows that and how Abhiram fulfills his love and who is Abhinaya forms the rest of the story.
Tarun was not new to films. He got the National Award as a child artist. After making his debut as a young adult in Nuvve Kaavali, Tarun proved himself to be an actor of substance. He attained critical and commercial success with the films that followed. Unfortunately, wrong choice of subjects, and lackluster films made him fade away, and his previous film came about four years ago. In Idi Naa Love Story, it can be seen that acting prowess has not deserted Tarun. He is as good as when he was at the top of his career. He is as handsome as when he mesmerised audience with Nuvve Kavali. He single handedly carried the film, and the only reason for audience to sit through till the end.
Lot of hype surrounded Oviya Helen’s Tollywood debut, but both her styling and performance have not met expectations. Character played by her has lot of potential and gained following for the actress who played it in Kannada original. But bad writing and direction might have marred her debut in Telugu. Res of the character do not have much to do in a story where only hero and heroine characters fill the screen.
Directing and writing of this film are nothing to write about. Every scene is filled with uncountable dialogues. They are not up to patch. Many dialogues are made fun of by Twitterati, and it is no wonder. Direction by Ramesh Gopi is mediocre. Editing should have been better. A good 20 minutes can be chopped.Music of this film is good, and two songs were done very well on screen. Background score is decent. The Cinematography is excellent but wasted in a disappointing movie. Production values are good. Visuals are great.
On a whole, Idi Naa Love Story is not a comeback film for Tarun. He may be seen in future on screen. But this is not what he expected when he agreed to act in this film. The Only positives of the film are Tarun's acting and beautiful locations. Lack of proper story (Kannada original is a character-driven drama, and the main point of the film was novel at that time. That film was made on shoestring budget) and mediocre direction made Idi Naa Love Story a forgettable affair.
