Malayalam cult superhit Premalu has made its way to the theatres in Telugu.

Sachin (Naslen) aspires to pursue his career in the UK and wants to leave his hometown as he is tired of it. He travels to Hyderabad temporarily through his friend Amal (Sangeeth Prathap), where he falls in love with Reenu (Mamitha Baiju), an IT employee. However, Reenu’s idea of a partner is completely different from the one Sachin possesses. The duo become friends and how it blooms into something special is what the movie follows.

Although most of the actors are new, they have given it their all.Naslen has managed to impress one and all and his role will surely resonate with a lot of youngsters. He looks the part and performs with ease and is the one to watch out for. Mamitha as Renu has a terrific screen presence and it’s not just the cute looks but her excellent performance as a young ambitious professional that stands out.  Other cast members such as Althaf and Shyam Mohan have done a good job as well and add great value to the proceedings.


  • Nalsen and Mamitha’s chemistry
  • Relatable writing
  • Humourous moments
  • Depiction of Hyderabad


  • Slow pace
  • Climax portion


The greatest strength of Premalu is its reliability. Right from its lead characters to city surroundings and the challenges faced by youngsters, everything is spot on and youth will definitely relate to it. Girish AD has done a tremendous job at portraying Hyderabad in its true spirit. Hyderabad is much more than skyscrapers and Hi-tech city and the kudos to Ajmal Sabu’s cinematography for capturing the essence of the city beautifully.

The Telugu dubbing has come out well and Premalu will definitely appeal to the youth as well as family audience. While some pop culture references in the movie may look forced, Premalu has definitely managed to stay true to its original version and didn’t get lost in translation.
