Released with much hype on the occasion of Valentines Day, Vijay Devarakonda’s ‘World Famous Lover’ stealing the buzz from ‘Oka China Viramam’ and ‘Anubhavinchu Raja’. Directed by Kranthi Madhav, the much-awaited love story grabbed the nation’s attention with the teaser. All thanks to Vijay’s PAN-India craze now! While VD romances four heroines with four different love tracks, soulful music stood as one of the pillars for the movie.
Into the story, the flick revolves around Gowtham and Yamini(Rashi), a young couple who are on the verge of breaking their marriage. While Gowtham is going through a rough professional life as a struggling writer, Yamini was shown as a strong independent woman trying her best to cope up with troubled relation. Will they patch up? Would Gowtham succeed in his career? Is what the story about.
Vijay and Aishwarya’s performances as Seenayya and Suvarna can be said as the only golden track in the first half as the actors breathed life into the characters. With a tedious screenplay, the second half tested the patience of audiences as the songs also couldn’t help. A few scenes shot in Paris will revive the lost energy in the story. The climax is quite a predicted one making it an another routine love story but with different actors. Rounding it off, the director losing consistency in narration gobbled up a soulful script and five terrific performances.
