Release date : Nov 14, 2014
123telugu.com Rating : 3.25/5  
Director : A.S.Ravi Kumar Chowdary
Producer : Allu Aravind, Dil Raju
Music Director : Anoop Rubens
Starring : Sai Dharam Tej, Regina Cassandra


Young hero Sai Dharam Tej, has been waiting quite long enough for his films to release. His wait is finally over as his latest film Pilla Nuvvu Leni Jeevitham has hit the screens today. Let’s see whether Teju gets a well deserved launch.

Story:-

Seenu(Sai Dharam Tej) is a fun loving youth who falls in love with Shailu(Regina). He keeps proposing her but an irritated Shailu rejects his love every time. Twist in the tale arises when Seenu comes to know that Shailu is in danger posed by a dreaded goon called Maisamma(Jagapathi Babu) and someone more powerful behind him.

What does Seenu do now ? How will he save Shailu from all her problems ? For answers to all these questions, you need to watch this film on the big screen.

Plus Points:-

Sai Dharam Tej has done quite well in the film. He is very good with his dances and has worked hard on his performance. For just his second film, he shows decent maturity and carries off a tough role well. He needs to work on his looks and facial expressions a bit more in the future.

Regina Caasandra is getting quite gorgeous with every film. She looks beautiful in Indian attire, and has done well in the emotional scenes as well. Once again, Jagapathi Babu does an awesome supporting role. He performs brilliantly during the first half and has showcased amazing dialogue delivery. Last ten minutes of the film are quite entertaining and provide some huge laughs.

Major plus point of the film is the racy narration. The entire credit should go to the director who has narrated the film in quite an interesting way. Pace in the film does not dip most of the times and moves swiftly. Comedy factor is quite good and Raghu Babu walks away with all the credit here. He is hilarious and provides superb entertainment along with Jayaprakash Reddy.

Minus Points :-

Even though the climax is entertaining, it looks a bit overboard with the end result. Love track between Regina and Teju does not look convincing. Regina’s characterization also looks jaded. Perhaps, the director should have given more clarity to have a ending weaved around her relationships.

Once the twist in the tale is revealed, the film becomes predictable. Prakash Raj’s character and the political angle should have been showcased more in the first half.

Technical Aspects:-

Production values look good as the makers have made sure that Teju gets a perfect set up. Anup Rubens’s music is superb, and all the songs fit supremely well in to the plot. Choreography designed for Teju also looks good and the pre-climax fight between Jagapathi Babu and Teju has been designed nicely.

Director Ravi Kumar Chowdary has done a superb job with his direction. The way he has narrated the film with interesting flashback modes is quite novel. Dialogues written for Jagapathi Babu are good and all the scenes between him and Teju have come out well. Screenplay of the film is the biggest highlight, as all the plots and twists have been cleverly revealed.

Verdict:-

With Pilla Nuvvu Leni Jeevitaham, Tollwood gets yet another promising hero in the form of Sai Dharam Tej. Even though he looks a bit rustic, Teju is quite convincing in his role. Lack of clarity in Regina’s character and chemistry between the lead pair are some basic let downs. But a racy narration, hilarious comedy and beautiful songs cover this up and make this film a decent youthful entertainer.

"PNLJ" viewers' Twitter review:

Sarkar

#PLNJ is a laugh riot with good screenplay, starts with slow pace...picks at Intervel block & ends with cool entertainment... #PNLJ strength is in its 2nd half with good train action sequence & comedy. #SDT debut is good with his dances, fights & comedy timing. #PNLJ 3.25/5; my Boxoffice prediction around 18cr in AP/Nizam (expecting ceded 3+)

Pilla Nuvvu Leni Jeevitham From Reviewer View� :

Pilla Nuvvu Leni Jeevitham has a routine story and predictable scenes.

Pilla Nuvvu Leni Jeevitham is a youthful entertainer which can be watched once without any complaints.

Rating: 3/5

Sai Dharam Tej, nephew of Megastar Chiranjeevi and Powerstar Pawan Kalyan arriving with his second film and first release “Pilla Nuvvuleni Jeevitham”. Touted to be a romantic action entertainer movie in which Regina cassandra acted as female lead, Jagapathi babu and Shayaji shinde played important roles. Interesting to see how Sai Dharam Tej performs, does he have potential to become one more star hero from the mega family?

Plot:
Prabhakar (Prakash Raj) and Ganga Prasad (Sayaji Shinde) are the two potential candidates for the replacement of existing CM for peoples party in AP. A reporter Shafi exposes the scams of Ganga Prasad and with that Prabhakar will be unanimously chosen by the MLA’s. Mysamma (Jagapathi Babu) is appointed to kill Shafi and then Sailaja (Regina).

Seenu (Sai Dharam Tej) who fell in love with Sailaja, approaches Mysamma and challenges him. Seenu with his love for Sailaja protects her from Mysamma. After a series of incidents Mysamma goes to meet Prabhakar who was supposed to become CM in a day. Who is instructing Mysamma to kill Sailaja and how Sailaja and Shafi are related forms the rest of the story.

Analysis:
First half of the movie starts on a serious note with political background and then shifts to college background with scenes of Sai Dharam Tej and Regina. Most of the scenes in the first half an hour are very routine but the pace of the movie picks up towards the interval. Some comedy scenes in the first half worked out well and some didn’t.

Second half will be a mix of action sequences and comedy scenes. Actual story of the movie will be revealed slowly in the second half and the sequences using the media in the last half an hour will leave a positive impact. Over all a decent love story with good mix of commercial elements.

Cast Performance:
Sai Dharam Tej: He excelled well in his first movie. Though he needs to improve upon his physique and looks, he comes out with pass marks in his debut movie.

Regina Cassandra: Her performance is improving day by day and she has done justice to her role. Mostly she is portrayed in a traditional avatar.

Jagapathi Babu: It’s a cake walk for Jagapthi Babu to portray roles which has got comedy. He is perfect in his role.

Prakash Raj: His scope is limited and did justice for his role

Raghu Babu: Comedy scenes between Raghu Babu and his wife have come out well.

Technical Department:
Director has taken a common story but he ensured it has got enough comedy and entertainment.
Music from Anup Rubens is good in Tej’s Introduction song and the teasing song. Back Ground Music in comedy scenes is not up to the mark.

Verdict:
Good launching pad for Sai Dharam Tej and easily a good watch.

Pilla Nuvvu Leni Jeevitham Movie Review exclusively at way2movies.com . Shortly, PNLJ is the official launch pad of Chiranjeevi's nephew, Sai Dharam Tej. Lets see if the new hero from Mega camp make a mark with his first movie. Read more...

Story:

PNLJ story begins with Prabhakar [Prakash Raj] and Ganga Prasad [Sayaji Shinde] trying to replace existing CM. A series of incedents take place and Prabhakar happens to become CM of AP, finally. On the other hand, Seenu [Sai Dharam Tej], a go-lucky cool guy falls for Sailaja [Regina Cassandra] and continuously proposes her even after rejecting for several times. Story takes a twist when the new CM orders Maisamma [Jagapathi Babu] to kill reporter Shafi and Sailaja [Regina].

Why is Sailaja being aimed to death? Will Seenu saves Sailaja? Watch Pilla Nuvvu Leni Jeevitham on big screens...

Performances:

Sai Dharam Tej aka Teju has made a laudable debut. He scores high in dance, comic timing, dialogue delivery and fights. At the same time he has to concentrate more on his physique and expressions.

Regina Cassandra is getting better with every new movie and she looked gorgeous in traditional avatar. She did her parts well, but couldn't complement her new co-star much.

Jagapathi Babu has given a promising performance. After he made a comeback as villain in Legend, he has done justice to Maisamma role in this movie. All his scenes with Teju have come out well.

Raghu Babu, Jayaprakash Reddy and Prakashraj have delivered entertaining performances among others.

Technical Analysis:

AS Ravikumar Chowdary has to be appreciated for coming up with such a script with substance and roles that have scope to perform. There are handful of characters in the movie and are absolutely given enough space.

Anoop Rubens have come out with engaging back ground score, which could have been better in comedy scenes. All the songs are neatly placed with beautifully shot visuals. Choreography needs special mention.

With two big producers Allu Aravind and Dil Raju, PNLJ is precisely presented.

Analysis:

After each individual department has come out with excellent work, Pilla Nuvvu Leni Jeevitham lags at few basics. Though dialogues, narration and screenplay are maintained well, director could have concentrated more on Prakashraj and Regina's characterization. Especially, it needs more clarification towards the climax.

Comedy takes the center stage in the movie, albeit the importance of the script is maintained and twists are smartly revealed.

Finally, PNLJ is a perfect launch pad for Mega hero Sai Dharam Tej.

Final Verdict: Youthful Entertainer-Fun Unlimited

Rating: 3.25/5

ప్రభాకర్ (ప్రకాష్ రాజ్), గంగ ప్రసాద్ (షియాజి షిండే) ఇద్దరూ సీఎం కుర్చీ కోసం పోటిపడే రాజకీయ నేతలు. షఫి (షఫీ) అనే జర్నలిస్టుకు వీరిద్దరికి సంబంధించి కొన్ని విషయాలు తెలుస్తాయి. ఇది తెలిసిన రాజకీయ నేతలు ఇద్దరూ షఫీని చంపమని రౌడీ (మైసమ్మ)కు సుపారీ ఇస్తారు. ఇంతలో పాలకొల్లు నుంచి వచ్చిన శ్రీను (సాయి ధరమ్ తేజ్) మైసమ్మ దగ్గరకు వెళ్ళి తను చంపేయమని కోరుతాడు. ఇదేమి అర్థం కాని మైసమ్మ సైలెంట్ అవుతాడు. మైసమ్మకు తన ప్రేమ కధ గురించి చెప్తాడు. శైలు (రెజినా)ను ఎలా ప్రేమించింది, ఆ తర్వాత ఏం జరిగింది వివరించటంతో పాటు ఒక ట్విస్టు చెప్తాడు. ఆ ట్విస్టు ఏమిటి.., షఫీకి తెలిసిన నిజాలు ఏమిటి?  మైసమ్మ ఇద్దరిలో ఎవరిని చంపుతాడు ఇలా మిగతా కధ అంతా ధియేటర్ కు వెళ్ళి చూడండి.


సాయి ధరమ్ తేజ్ తాజా చిత్రం ‘పిల్లా నువ్వులేని జీవితం’ 14న ప్రేక్షకుల ముందుకు వచ్చింది. సాయి ధరమ్ నటించిన తొలి సినిమా ‘రేయ్’ అయినా., అది విడుదల కాలేదు, దీంతో ‘పిల్లా నువ్వులేని జీవితం’నే తొలి సినిమాగా చెప్పవచ్చు. ఈ మూవీని రవికుమార్ డైరెక్ట్ చేయగా.., గీతా ఆర్ట్స్, శ్రీ వెంకటేశ్వర క్రియేషన్స్ బ్యానర్ లో బన్నీ వాసు, హర్షిత్ కలిసి ఈ సినిమాను నిర్మించారు. రెజినా హీరోయిన్ గా నటించింది. విడుదలకు ముందే ట్రైలర్లు, ఫొటోలు, పాటలకు మంచి స్పందన వచ్చింది. మాస్ లుక్ తో పాటు స్టైల్ ను చూపిస్తూ రెండు వర్గాల నుంచి పాజిటివట్ టాక్ అందుకున్నాడు. ఇలా మెగా ఫ్యాన్స్ భారీ అంచనాల మద్య వచ్చిన ‘పిల్లా నువ్వులేని జీవితం’ ఎలా ఉందో రివ్యూ మీకోసం అందిస్తున్నాం.

మెగా ఫ్యాన్స్ అంచనాలు, హీరో స్టార్ ఇమేజ్ ను దృష్టిలో పెట్టుకుని డైరెక్టర్ రవి కుమార్ కధ సిద్ధం చేసుకున్నట్లు తెలుస్తోంది. తానేంటో నిరూపించుకోవాలనే కసి ఇందులో కన్పించింది. కధ, కధనం బాగుంది అయితే ఇంకాస్త జాగ్రత్తలు తీసుకుని ఉంటే చాలా బాగుండేది. అనూప్ రూబెన్స్ సంగీతం కూడా బాగుంది. ముఖ్యంగా బ్యాగ్రౌండ్ మ్యూజిక్ చాలా బాగా వచ్చింది. ఇక సినిమాటోగ్రపీ శివ చాలా కష్టపడ్డాడు. ప్రతి యాంగిల్ ఫ్రేం మిస్ కాకుండా జాగ్రత్తలు తీసుకున్నాడు. సన్నివేశాలు, సాంగ్స్ లో విజువల్ క్లారిటి బాగుంది. ఎడిటింగ్ పరంగా గౌతం రాజు కూడా బాగా వర్క్ చేశాడు... కాని ఇంకొంచెం తన పనితనం చూపించవచ్చు కూడా. ఇక రెండు సంస్థలు కలిసి అందించిన నిర్మాణ విలువలు కూడా బాగున్నాయి.

ప్లస్ పాయింట్లు :

సాయి ధరమ్ తేజ్ కు ఈ సినిమా మంచి ఎంట్రీ అని చెప్పవచ్చు. తొలి సినిమాలో నటన చాలా బాగుంది. మాస్, క్లాస్ నటనతో అదరగొట్టాడు. ఇక డాన్సులు, ఫైటింగ్ అయితే బ్లడ్ పవర్ చూపించాడు.సినిమాకు హీరోతో పాటు విలన్ జగపతి బాబు కూడా అస్సెట్. విలనిజం స్పష్టంగా చూపించటంతో పాటు క్యారెక్టర్ లోని కామెడిని కూడా అద్బుతంగా ప్రదర్శించాడు. విలన్ క్యారెక్టర్లు చేస్తున్న జగపతి బాబు దివంగత నటుడు శ్రీహరిని తలపిస్తున్నాడు.ఇక హీరోయిన్ రెజీనా గ్లామర్ తో ఆకట్టుకుంది. ఇప్పటికే స్టార్ హీరోయిన్ గా ఎదిగిన రెజినాకు కెరీర్ పరంగా ఇదో ప్లస్ పాయింట్ అవుతుంది. మిగతా నటులు కూడా తమ పాత్రలకు న్యాయం చేశారు.

మైనస్ పాయింట్లు :
సినిమా మొత్తం చూస్తే సెకండ్ ఆఫ్ కంటే ఫస్ట్ ఆఫ్ కాస్త నిదానంగా సాగినట్లు అన్పిస్తుంది. అయితే ఎక్కడా ప్రేక్షకులను నిరాశపర్చలేదు. కథలో ట్విస్టులు చాలా పెట్టడంతో వాటిలో కొన్ని ప్రేక్షకులకు తెలిసినవి ఉన్నాయి. ఇవి వచ్చే సమయంలో ప్రేక్షకులు ముందే ఊహించేయవచ్చు. ఇంతకుమించి మరీ ఎక్కువగా మైనస్ పాయింట్లు ఏమి చెప్పలేము.

చివరగా :

ఫస్ట్ ఇంప్రెషన్ బెస్ట్ ఇంప్రెషన్ అన్పించుకున్నాడు.

Director  : AS Ravi Kumar Chowdary
Producer  : Bunny Vaas and Harshith
Music  : Anup Rubens
Cinema Rating  :  3.5
Cinematography  : Dasaradhi Sivendra
Editing by  : Gowtham Raju
Starring  : Sai Dharam Tej, Regina


Story Prabhakar (Prakash Raj) and Ganga Prasad (Shiyaji Shinde) are two politicians fighting for the CM chair. Shafi (Shafi) is a journalist who finds the loop holes of Ganga and Prabhakar will be the Chief Minister. Seenu (Sai Dharam Tej) is a student who falls in love with Sailu (Regina). He knows that Sailu will be in trouble and comes to save her. With ten days left for Prabhakar to sit in the CM chair, Seenu comes to know some shocking facts about Prabhakar? What is the shocking news? What happens to Shafi? What is the relation between Sailu and Prabhakar? Watch the movie for the real facts.
Analysis :
The story of the film is not new to the audience but the screenplay of the movie makes the film an interesting one. The first half of the movie starts slow and on a routine note but it slowly gets interesting and picks up pace. The first half of the movie is highly entertaining with some needed surprises and an interesting interval bang.

The second half of the film starts with lot of interest and continues the picked pace. The gripping narration holds the movie with funny entertainment between the characters elevating the film. The pace continues till the end with some nice performers placing the film at the top. On the whole the second half of the movie is highly entertaining with all the elements placed right.
Performance :Sai Dharam Tej surely makes an impressive debut with his second movie though his first movie has been shelved. He has done the character of Seenu with ease and perfection. Coming from the Mega family and his fans expecting dances will be completely satisfied with his dances. Regina will sure join the top league soon and she has been very impressive with her performance. Jagapathi Babu steals the show with his superb and rusty performance. This movie proves that he is a perfect replacement for Sri Hari. Raghu Babu, Prabhas Srinu and others bring lot of entertainment in the movie. Prakash Raj, Shafi and Shiyaji Shindey do the justice for the assigned roles.

The story of the film is simple, what makes it big is the screenplay of the movie which has been gripping and tight. The screenplay has been written with utmost care with all the elements indulged in the right quantity. The photography of the movie has been apt and the editing has been decent. The songs of the movie are very melodious and come in right time. The back ground score elevated the film to the level needed. The production values have been lavish and the director has come back with a decent movie which will sure end up collecting good commercial figures at the box-office. A bounce back movie for Ravikumar Chowdary.

Final Word:

A decent youthful and comedy entertainer with needed ingredients. Pilla Nuvvu Leni Jeevitham is definitely a worth watcher. Sai Dharam Tej, Regina and Jagapathi Babu steals the show. Go watch the film. Recommended.

Maisamma (Jagapathi Babu) is a big rowdy sheeter and a contract killer. Seenu (Sai Dharam Tej) is a carefree college student who falls in love with Siri (Regina Cassandra) at the first sight. But the trouble is brewing as some unknown assailants keep attacking her. And there is a political turmoil in the state. The rest of the story is all about how these three principle characters are connected with and how Seenu expresses his love to Siri and protects her.

Artists Performance

Actors:

Sai Dharam Tej: Sai Dharam Tej is the latest addition to the mega heroes who are setting silver screen on blaze. Sai Dharam Tej is very talented and has a flowing dialogue delivery. He has a flexible body language and is extremely at ease with camera. He is good with the dances and is deft at doing action sequences. He proves himself as worthy of talent even without the background. The mass look is an added advantage. All he needs to do is to select scripts wisely to carve a niche for himself to become a big hero.

Others: Regina Cassandra who has done bubbly girl characters before has done the role of a serious girl who is searching for somebody. She is pretty good. Jagapati Babu has done another mass role of a rowdy sheeter with a bit of comedy angle attached to his character. Prakash Raj played the role of a politician with a limited screen time. Raghu Babu does an entertaining role. Satya Krishnan gets an interesting character. Shafi plays the role of an investigative journalist

Story - screenplay - direction: It’s a story of hero taking up the cause of heroine and rescuing her. What makes this regular story different is the narrative style and screenplay. The entire film is narrated in a spaced flashback pattern. And there are a couple of twists. Director Ravi Kumar Chowdary comes up with a decent work. However, he tried to inject comedy in vital scenes by diluting content (hero using politician’s infertility certificate to make a comedy out of it than asking the politician for a DNA test). The climax of the film appear abrupt and tame

Other departments: Background music by Anup Rubens is nice. Some of the songs are good. The title track is nicely shot with a variety signature step. The composition of Ato Ito Eto song reminds us of Pantham Pantham song from Sye. Cinematography by Dasaradhi Sivedra is very good. Dialogues written by Diamond Ratnam are partly entertaining. Editing is okay. Production values by the producers Bunny Vaas (Geetha Arts) and Sri Harshith (Sri Venkateswara Creations) are slick.


Analysis: Pilla Nuvvu Leni Jeevitham is a film that is made to cater to all kinds of audiences. It has a regular story with different narrative style and a couple of interesting twists. The movie had an upset during the shooting period due to demise of Srihari who was later replaced by Jagapathi Babu. Plus points of the film are cast, narrative style and music. On the flipside, the climax should have been effective. On a whole, Pilla Nuvvu Leni Jeevitham acts as a platform to launch Sai Dharam Tej who gave an impressive performance and has decent commercial elements to make it work at box office.

BOTTOM LINE
Screenplay is the King.

CENSOR
“A” Certified, 132 mins.

OUR RATING: Abv Avg

What is the film about?

Seenu (Sai Dharam Tej) loves a girl. The girl has a problem. How Seenu the lover solves the problem of the girl he loves and how Mysamma ( Jagapathi Babu) fits into this scheme of things is what basically the film is about.

How is Sai Dharam Tej’s performance?

For a first film hero Sai Dharam Tej has given a decent performance without any doubt. He has an ease in body language and delivers dialogues well although the voice needs to be worked on further. There are no big dances just glimpses of the capabilities are shown here. Also no emotional scenes are given to the hero so no scope in that area as well. There is a rawness in terms of looks but it goes well with the character here but it definitely needs improvement.

Direction by A.S.Ravi Kumar Chowdary?
AS Ravikumar Chowdhary returns to big screen after a very long gap. It is clear that the director has worked very hard to return with a fresh entertainer. More than the story it’s the screenplay that has given that feeling of freshness here. The first half especially has come out well and the interval bang is good. Screenplay becomes predictable in the second half but its fine as it engages. Climax could have been better though.

Regina Cassandra and Others performance?
Regina Cassandra plays a typical heroine character in the film. Everything happens for her but she has very little to do. Jagapathi Babu is once again given a good role and he is clearly enjoying it. His presence is a big plus for the film. Raghubabu is given a good role and he makes full use of it. Prabhas Seenu too shines in couple of scenes. Chandramohan, Jayaprakash Reddy, Hema and others are fine. They do their bit in providing the entertainment. Prakash Raj makes late entry but is very crucial to the story as entertainment revolves around him. He is good as usual.

Anup Rubens and others ?
Music by Anup Rubens is good. The background is good in most parts. Cinematography is good as is editing. Dialogues are neat and fit perfectly into the narrative. Choreography of songs is on predictable lines.


Highlights?
Screenplay.
Casting.
Interval bang.
Entertainment.

Drawbacks?
Simple story.

Climax.
Alternative take:
For the story the film had which is a very simple and predictable one, the director has done his best to come up with an engaging film. Could the climax be better? Yes it could be but the way it is, its okay.

Did I enjoy it?
Yes

Will you recommend it?
Yes

Behind the Movie PNLJ: Mega debutant Sai Dharam Tej’s wait to see himself on screen is going to be fulfilled today. Directed by AS Ravi Kumar Chowdary with Regina as heroine and Jagapathi Babu seen in a key character, there is celebrative mood set in Mega camp. Let us get into the review.

In the Movie PNLJ: Story begins with introduction of Crime Journalist Shafi (Shafi) being attacked by men of local rowdy Maisamma (Jagapathi Babu), who belongs to politician (Sayaji Shinde). Reason is Shafi publicizes the politician in wrong perspective through a TV show exactly at a time when he is soon to become a CM. Opportunity now lands in hands of another politician Prabhakar Rao (Prakash Raj).

Into the present, Seenu (Sai Dharam) enters into Maisamma’s den to offer him a Suapri to kill a shocking person. Here Seenu narrates his love story though an interesting college flashback where Shailu (Regina) is introduced. After too many love proposals and rejections, Seenu comes to know that Shailu’s life is in danger from Maisamma. How is the total political backdrop connected to Shailu? What was the challenge between Seenu and Maisamma? Who became the CM finally?

Values of the Movie PNLJ: Due credits to only two persons, one is hero Sai and second is director Chowdary. For a new face getting introduced from Mega camp, one can understand the kind of pressure to build on Chowdary. Matching all such expectations, he prepared a best platform for Sai to take off. The magical screenplay with racy narration from Chowdary was well in sync with energy and style portrayed by Sai. Basically story has something new to offer and screenplay was prepared rope tight, however the pre climax and climax looked quite over board. Diamond Rathnam dialogues should be highlighted for conversations between Sai and Jagapathi Babu. Songs composed by Anup Rubens lacked in power needed for a hero like Sai. Stunts wise, the train episode was shot splendidly. Shivendra’s camera work was cool just like smooth editing by Goutham Raju. Production values of Dil Raju and Allu Aravind are noteworthy.

Performance wise, it is hard to believe whether Sai is acting in first movie or fourth, fifth movie. This guy has tremendous ease and can be unanimously declared as best debut among new heroes of present generation. If hair style was the only minus in Sai, excellent timing of comic punches, jazzy mannerisms, poignant dances, dare devil stunts and more than all the charm of Chiranjeevi presented in him are a huge bundle of plus points. He is set to shine for a bright future and Mega Fans have one more satisfactory addition to their list.

Regina looked gorgeous as usual. Her characterization lacked in clarity and depth which resulted in a paltry romantic track. Whatsoever, Regina proved her presence. Jagapathi Babu is the only best fit as Maisamma. His support to Sai and Regina meant a lot for the film. Raghu Babu as side kick to JB, Satya Krishnan as Raghu Babu’s wife and Jayaprakash Reddy-Duvvasi Mohan were thoroughly hilarious. Prabhas Seenu and batch has also done their best. Sayaji Shinde, Prakash Raj, Shafi and Surekha are in for a regular show.               

Values of the Movie PNLJ: One cannot comment on what kind of a debut product YVS Chowdary cooked in the form of ‘Rey’ for Sai. Fortunately, ‘PNLJ’ has come like more than a better dream debut for the Mega camp hero. The script of Chowdary had all youthful components to outline best advantages in Sai. Without disappointing Fans, he gave a fault less performance.

Apparently, there were certain areas in second half where graph in pace of narration dipped which might serve as a drawback when calculating the final output. More careful and more dynamism induced into second half would have made ‘PNLJ’ a more worthwhile product. Political flavor in pre climax and climax shifted the focus of audience attention from Sai to Shafi. Story and scripting wise, it might be acceptable but from a common viewer point of view, why should Sai be sidelined? All in all, ‘PNLJ’ is a delightful debut for Sai and Mega Fans can have a blast of celebration time. Commercially, the film is well set to collect good figures.
