Hello Guru Prema Kosame Story:
The story begins in Kakinada where Sanju (Ram) is happy to revel in the warmth showered by his doting parents. A middle class boy Hero Sanju (Ram) is a happy go lucky youth who comes to Hyderabad from Kakinada for his IT job. Sanju mother (Sithara) asks him to stay at her friend’s house. Her friend is Vishwanatham (Prakash Raj), a middle-class father with a daughter Anupama (Anupama) who is an engineering student. On his way to Hyderabad for work, on the train, he plays eerie pranks on Anupama after overhearing her conversation. Sanju likes her at the very first moment when he sees her in a train journey from Kakinada to Hyderabad but their friendship begins on a misunderstanding. This uncomfortable premise on which their journey begins is tough to shake off for a while.
Aamani as Anupama’s mother utters inappropriate and embarrassing things in any situation. A deep-lying hurt is the reason for her to do so, but a few scenes later all this vanishes conveniently.
Later the proposal scene involving him and his wide-eyed colleague Ritu (Pranitha Subhash) is clumsy, to put it mildly. A comedy of errors episode where Ritu and Sanju find themselves confronting Prakash Raj and Suresh (in a guest appearance) is the only one that shines in the portions featuring Pranitha. Some hilarious scenes involving Praveen as a mechanic and the general camaraderie between the different characters make the film bearable for a while. Despite familiar story, the film provides good comedy in the first half. The most hilarious moment is when Ram accidentally lands in Pranitha’s home that leads to major confusion among the characters which is hilarious. The comedy track in software company also brings some laughs. Pranitha appears in a brief role but she looks beautiful. Sithara and Praveen make some impression in other roles.
Even after interval, we get to see some fun moments between Prakash Raj and Ram especially during the restaurant scene. However, it turns too predictable after a point and it drags on and on.
At his office, he falls for the beauty of his colleague Ritu (Pranitha) but his heart still beats for Anupama. Will he win Anupama? Why does Vishwanatham agree to Sanju’s 30-days challenge?
In Cinema Chupista Maava, it was Raj Tarun and Rao Ramesh’s Tu Tu Main Main thread. In Nenu Local, Nani throws a challenge to Sachin Khedekar that he’d make his daughter fall in love with him in no time and Sachin tries all sort of tricks to stop him.
With little variation here and there and some new additions, they are telling the same story again and again. Hello Guru Prema Kosame is no different either. In this, Prakash Raj agrees to be Ram’s best friend but he also has to see that his daughter would not fall for Ram. He uses many tricks to stop him.
Anupama is the bone of contention but her role gets sidetracked as the two men play a game of ‘now think/act like a friend’, ‘now think/act like a father’. Prakash Raj can sleepwalk through these roles and still ace it. But he too appears tired, mouthing lines that are easy to forget by the time you walk out of the hall. For all that talk of being a doting father, he doesn’t ask the daughter’s consent before giving his word to a groom. Ram tries his best to rise above the middling narrative. The route to the conclusion, though, is tedious.
Moreover, the romantic track on Ram and Anupama is totally plain. It is not clear why they actually fall in love with each other? Is it because they are the lead pair of the movie? The revelation from Anupama looks so contrived. The ending is too clichéd. Second half totally reeks of lousy writing.
Songs by Devi Sri Prasad are pretty average. The music director composed in his typical trademark style, yet two songs are catchy.
The music doesn’t pass muster, and towards the end. Trinadha Rao Nakkina, the director delivers a clean entertainer that may not surprise you much but gives a good reason to hit theatres for the festival holidays, nothing matters except the exit door.
