NVNV is a Telugu film a mish-mash of few Hindi movies. Elements are taken from three of the Salman Khan movies : Pyaar Kiya To Darna Kya, Maine Pyar Kiya and Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam. Yet, the treatment and acts are something that makes it worth watch. And yes, a worthy mention is the cinematography that makes it a must 'watch'. The greenery of hilly villages, is captured exquisitely, making it a treat to eyes.
Directed by Prabhu Deva, NVNV tells story of Santosh [Siddharth], a young NRI guy who is in India to attend a wedding. Meets Siri [Trisha] the only sister of over protecting Krishna [Srihari]. And go through clashes with her, but finally ends up in love instead. He straightly goes to the village to win trust of Siri's brother
Most of the first half is deja vu for Hindi film viewer. Though the scenes are almost similar to the epic Hindi films i have mentioned above, it has been treated differently that we don't feel annoyed, but love them.Siddharth charms with his own style. While Trisha mostly remain silent. Yet, a lovely performance. The second half goes a little bit over the top by Hindi films' standard. With some loud comedy and scenes where Santosh is being harassed by Krishna's men. But still, the flow keeps moving without any glitch. Music by Devi Sri Prasad goes quite well with the story. Personal favorite are Niluvadhamu & Something Something.
We already grew up watching the movies NVNV is based on. Yet, the movie charms you with its own moments, acts and sweetness. Must see for Siddharth fans, must see as a starting point to Southie cinema, coz this will give clear idea how the movies are lovingly made down south.
