Premam - Star Performance
No one else could have done this role except Naga Chaitanya. He fits the shoes of Nivin Pauly so perfect. He looked so dashing with little beard during third phase of his life time. Dialogue delivery and mannerisms are so good as college student. After string of flops, Chaitu has proved his mettle. Anupama and Madonna has nothing much to offer. Both of them are so beautiful. Madonna's portions are completely new for audience. Shruti haasan scores as Sitara teacher. She has done a fabulous job once again. Kindly don't compare this with the original. Shruti has nailed it to perfection. Cameos by Venky and Nagarjuna are surprise package. Especially Nagarjuna as Chaitu's dad in the climax is a sweet surprise for most of them. Rest of the supporting cast did justice to their roles.
Premam - Technical Team
Premam has superb production values and cameraman Karthik does a brilliant job in showcasing the various time zones in a superb way. Music is also a huge asset as all the songs sound well and have been shot quite decently. The screenplay is apt as the proceedings have been showcased in a very engaging manner. Dialogues are quite good as they reflect the mood of the youngsters well. Coming to the director Chandoo Mondeti, he needs to be completely applauded for the way he as made Premam. He had enormous pressure on him to successfully remake the film and boy, he has done a superb job with the narration. The way he has added good entertainment and presents all the three stories in a fresh way makes Premam quite interesting.
