Pora Pove Movie Review

Pora Pove featuring debutantes in the lead roles has hit theaters today. This film is directed by Lankapalli Srinivas on S.V. Movie Makers banner.

What is it about?

Vikas (Karan) and Sri Chaitanya (Sowmya Sukumar) fall in love instantly when they join an Engineering College. Chaithu is very particular about her lover as she wants him to love her only. When she comes to know that Vikas had affairs with her friends, Chaithu breaks up with him.


Karan has very poor looks and screen presence. He should work on his body language and appearance to make an impression. Sowmya Sukumar is equally bad in every department. Both the lead actors never let the audience to connect with this romantic film. Jabardasth comedians did their bit. Rest of the star cast is relatively new.


Dialogues written by the director Srinivas are targeted at youth. Songs of this film are composed by Yajamanya. More than a couple of songs are good to hear and also shot well. Biscuit song will enthrall the masses. Background score is nice too. Cinematography is fine. Editing is not up to the mark. The film drags on unnecessarily during pre and post interval periods.

Director Lankapalli Srinivas’s direction is alright. He has made a decent film on the technical front. But the script let him down. Poorly written script and bad lead pair didn’t let the film to connect with the audience.

Thumbs Up:


Thumbs Down:

  •  Chemistry between Hero and Heroine
  •  Story and Screenplay


Pora Pove has a simple story that focuses on the first love. Film starts off on an entertaining note, but fizzles within no time. Scenes at the traffic signal become repetitive and the process of falling in love is not shown in an engaging manner. Lack of chemistry between the lead pair is a huge minus for this movie.

Romantic films fail to impress if there is no chemistry between the lead pair. Director never tried to focus on right emotions throughout the movie. First half is a total letdown with nothing to offer. Movie only gets a bit interesting towards the end. Even that part isn’t dealt in a proper way.

Pora Pove is a clean film compared to other youthful films. There are few double meaning dialogues and unwanted scenes between lecturers. Apart from that the director tried to keep it clean. But the film is a complete bore fest with repetitive scenes and poor comedy. You can’t even watch this on a DVD. So forget about catching it in theaters.

Verdict: Stay away, far far away!
