Snehithudu is a 3
hour roller coaster ride of comedy, sentiment & emotions.
Story : A well known concept of 3 engineering
students and how their lives changed after.
& Screen Play : The film is a scene to scene
remake of its Hindi original, 3 Idiots. Shankar has beautifully maintained the
soul intact and added a song.
Performances : Vijay has carried his emotions pretty well.
Jiiva, Sriram & Satyaraj are also good. Ileana is as usually poor. Satyan
as the important ‘silencer’ stands out.
& Background Music : Shankar’s
mark can be seen in ‘Askalsaka..’ & ‘Ileana..’. Harris Jayaraj has done a
wonderful job. BGM is perfect.
Direction : Good.
Plus : Dailogues, Hospital episode, Pre climax
episode of Baby birth & Music.
Minus : Well Known story & lack of proper mass
Movie Rating : 3.5 / 5 ( Must watch for
those who missed `3 Idiots`).
Snehithudu was acquired for a decent NRA priceby Dil Raju in the
state. GFC will share the overflow with Raju on a percentage basis. Its
definitely a win-win situation for both due to low acquisition cost.
