Anyone who watched ‘Andala Rakshashi’, and ‘Krishnagadi Veera Prema Gadha’ cannot deny that there’s a kind of magic and tenderness to the love stories of Hanu. With Hanu teaming up with Sharwanand and Sai Pallavi have both, through their careers, more than proved their mettle when it comes to acting, expectations have mounted up on the movie.
The movie’s teaser and trailer were received exceptionally well pushing the expectations further on the movie. Hanu Raghavpudi who lived in Kolkata for a while chose the city along with Nepal as the backdrop for this love story. Let’s see whether the director who is in desperate need of a hit after a dud like ‘LIE’ can deliver a hit or not with this movie.
‘Padi Padi Leche Manasu’ is a beautiful love story that’s predominantly shot in Kolkata and Nepal. With sparkling chemistry between Sharwanand, and Sai Pallavi and beautiful visuals accompanied by equally good music are the selling points.
With a decent first half and boring second half, ‘Padi Padi Leche Manasu’ works only parts. On the whole, the movie fails to live up to the buzz it created before release.
