Manisha Yadav is adequate for the role of female lead and looks very natural in her characterization. She manages to emote well in the key scenes making the film a good watch.
Santosh is alright as the male lead but has more of a Tamilian look which might be hard to connect with common Telugu Audience.
The remaining cast suits their respective roles well.
The director Susheendran took the subject into his own hands and made it interesting throughout the film’s runtime. His talent is evidently visible in every frame. He brilliantly showcased how current day youth are falling prey to infatuation and misconceive it to be love. He wonderfully presented the serious circumstances such youth might have to face as a result of their hastiness.
-> First half is quite laid back; it slowly carries the emotion towards the second half. From there the story reaches a new level.
-> Every scene in the second half is heart wrenching and aids so much to the film’s success.
-> The sensible way in which the theme is portrayed is laudable.
->Excessive Tamil flavor in the film might not appeal much to the Telugu Audience.
The phenomenal background score, songs with high literary value are huge assets for the film. The song sung by SPB before the climax sequence is yet another highlight.
This is the tenth dubbing film from S.K.Pictures production house. Suresh Kondeti is quite famous for dubbing such interesting films. It is a welcome change to watch such interesting films to be dubbed in Telugu.
Preminchali is a thought provoking attempt to bring light on issues which the current day youth overlook. The film clearly shows the hurdles which youth in relationships might have to face as a result of their carelessness. The film is not exactly a colorful love story because it reality in its true sense.
