NENU SHAILAJA - Movie Reviews

Nenu Shailaja could very well go down as a potentially well intentioned movie that ends being a melodramatic glop.
apherald
This is a simple story of relationships, beautifully told. A few frills, like a song in front of a dhaba and a needless land shark of a villain don’t gel with the rest of the film. Ignore these and Nenu Sailaja is a feel-good film to start the year with.
The Hindu
Nenu Sailaja is a different love story and relief from routine entertainers being mashed and thrown up on the audience. Kishore Tirumala has got a good outing with his second film. He particularly came up with very good dialogues and some of the scenes especially the sentiment ones are well written. The comedy quotient is on lower side which is a disappointment. The first half of the film is entertaining with some comedy and romantic scenes. However the second half turns routine and predictable. The sentiment scenes towards the end worked out. Over all it is an average second half. The movie is much better than Ram's recent films and its success will depend a lot on how masses and family audience receive it.

It’s Good, It’s Still Not Good!‘Nenu Shailaja’ will work on sure-shot profit terms relative to a strict shoe string budget and poor production standards which are in non-sync with Sravanti banner value.

Sa I L U is Lovable.Nenu Sailaja will strike a chord with the youth and the emotions in the second half will appeal to the family audience. This film will be appreciated by the target audience. Masses may find it little boring and sluggish that may hamper its chances in B and C centers. For its genuinely enjoyable scenes and touching emotions, Nenu Sailaja is worth a watch.

Kishore Tirumala delivered what was expected of him. He broke the flop streak for Hero Ram. Tollywood gets a wonderful beginning with the movie. This is like Toli Prema for the new generation and we recommend this clean entertainer for all class audiences.

Nenu.. Sailaja... doesn't really offer anything new. But it comes across as a culmination of some very well shot sequences, commendable performances and real world simplicity. We don't really see much of such subtly told stories on celluloid today, so you might as well give it a try!
The Times Of India
Nenu Sailaja is a well-thought project from Ram who has been doing completely mass movies in recent years. It has freshness in first half and a familiarity in second half. Plus points of the film are freshness in first half, beautiful dialogues and Ram’s perfect portrayal. On the flip side, second half gives you a deja vu feeling. But, it’s wrapped up in a positive fashion, On a whole, Nenu Sailaja has ingredients that work at box office and it’s a refreshing movie for Ram.

On the whole, Nenu Shailaja is a simple yet beautiful love story with the right mix of family emotions. Superb first half, Ram’s balanced performance and a clean narration are huge assets for the film. If you ignore the routine nature of the script during the second half, you can happily watch this feel good film with your entire family and start the new year on a positive note.

'Nenu Sailaja', is a throwback to innocent romance that blooms in the countryside
'Nenu.. Sailaja' is a rom-com and a family entertainer at once. A breezy outing this New Year Day, this one has Ram striking gold.

Despite being predictable, it is entertaining. However masses will miss the comedy tracks and spoofs which they are habituated to, in the recent times. The film's success will largely depend on the family and youth audience.

When we look at the story in a birds eye view, it’s very familiar in parts. However, the way Director Kishore Tirumalamtreated is what made the real difference. He made sure the melodrama never reaches the threshold. And whenever it is about to reach, he intelligently places a lighter moment after it. Majority of the film is like a sit-com, where all the humour falls in place so naturally without any force. There is no parallel comedy track that merges with the main story going on

Watch it without any expectations
