Debut-ants Mithun, Sri, Urmilla, Manisha Yadav given decent performances. Sri did well. Mithun is adequate. Urmilla has got a pivotal character and she does justice. Manisha Yadav is cute. A cameo dance sequence by Producer Suresh Kondeti was funny. Rest of the cast was supportive.

Technical Aspects:

Story of the film is routine. Screenplay is flat. Direction by Balaji Shaktivel leaves a lot to be desired. Narration of the film is Old fashioned. Dialogues by Sashank Vennalakanti are natural. Music by Prassana is fine. Editing is OK. Costumes by Srinu were apt. Production values are decent.

Survi Verdict:

First half of the Premalo Padithe is Very slow. So is the second half. Positives of Premalo Padithe are Performances and Screenplay arc. The quality of Balaji Shaktivel’s work is descending from film to film. The major drawbacks of the film is routine handling of script and slow narration by the director. On a whole, Premalo Padithe is an uninspiring film .

 Survi Review: 2/5
