Sanjay (Naga Shaurya) is a first-year Engineering student who is always shy and doesn’t open up. Anupama (Malavika Nair) is his senior in the college in Vizag. They become friends. Owing to their academic excellence, they move to the UK to pursue higher studies. There, they live with their respective friends in adjacent flats. There comes a point when they discover that they love each other. But, suddenly, a bad piece of news hits them. What is that? What consequences does the bad news have for them? Will they ever make peace with each other?


Naga Shaurya and Malvika share good chemistry. They are honest performers. They bring sincerity to their respective characters with classiness. Had the film not been so slow, their acting would have come out even better. The hero looks cool in the bearded look.

The performances by Srinivas Avasarala and Megha Chowdhury are good. The latter, as Puja, needed better padding. Abhishek Maharshi is seen in a semi-comical role, while Srividhya is good in the role of a typical friend.

Plus Points:

Srinivas Avasarala’s dialogues in some scenes. The lack of vulgarity or cliches.

Minus Points:

The conflict point is weak.

Verdict: Despite its flaws, the film is watchable.

Chitraseema Rating: 2/5
