Perhaps, by their very nature, most love stories are similar
with identical situations especially woven around teenagers.
The 'Nuvvu' sentiment is still working wonders or at least
the filmmakers think so. And Nuvve Nuvve is no exception to
Rishi (Tarun) is a college student. His father (Chandramohan)
runs a departmental store, which can never match the status
of industrialist Viswanath (Prakashraj), whose daughter Anjali
(Shriya) loves Rishi. Besides, Viswanath dotes on his only
daughter to the extent of purchasing an ice cream parlor just
because Anjali loves ice cream. But, he fails to oblige her
and get her married to the boy she likes. Maybe, this has
something to do with his ego. According to the assessment
given by his son (Rajeev Kanakala), the son-in-law should
be a 'yes man' and stay with him.
Back to Rishi and Anjali, who study in the same college. Soon
they fall in love. On one occasion, the two fly to Mumbai
in the morning and return in the evening (after Rishi pawns
his gold chain). When asked, Anjali bluffs that she was with
Unfortunately, before her return, Anajali's father asks the
same friend about her whereabouts. That is enough for Viswanath
to panic and suspect that she is already in love with someone.
He soon summons Rishi and offer him Rs.1 crore to move away
from his daughter. But, Rishi refuses to accept the amount.
Viswanath also insults Rishi's father and is immediately pulled
up by the hero. Anjali too comes to know of it and agrees

is against marrying Anjali. Rest shows how the inevitable
The director steers the film into a psychological drama. There
is plenty of word play in dialogue. But the storyline is simple.
Tarun and Sreya are comfortable and offer portrayals with
considerable ease. Prakashraj takes credit for projecting
the role of the heroine's father in the perspective the director
has imagined. Thus, the film definitely makes people sit,
if they are interested in listening to the verbal drama that
transpires between all the three important characters. Music
by Koti, a versatile composer, is quite soothing. The film
is fortunately saved from loud comedy.
Hari Anumolu's photography is quite imaginative.
