Hyderabad, Sep 17 (): Telugu movie, Life is Beautiful starring Amala Akkineni, Anjala Zaveri and Shirya Saran in lead roles and directed by Sekhar Kammula, has failed to astonish film critics.
The Tollywood movie, a romantic family drama has earned mixed reviews from the film critics. Director Rajamouli has loved the movie and has praised the movie a lot.
Critics say the main attraction of the movie is director Sekhar’s wonderful making and the lead actors’ great performances. The film has received rating at an average of 3.25 out of 5.
Oneindia entertainment critic says the emotional and sentimental scenes in the second half of the movie and the climax give weightage to the movie.
Rediff critic says Life is Beautiful is very long. The movie looks very similar to Sekhar Kammula’s previous film Happy Days. The film is emotional and gives us experience to certain ways of life.
Super Good movies said the first part of the movie goes as a jolly ride. The second half contains excellent sentimental scenes, particularly the climax has more sentimental scenes.
Gulte says if you have loved Sekhar Kammula’s Happy Days, Life is Beautiful will also satisfy to some extent. Life is Beautiful is not a great film, except for some good moments. The movie is not bad but we can say the movie is the weakest of Sekhar Kammula’s till date. Finally, the critic put a word that his previous films were better.
But, director SS Rajamouli has loved Sekhar Kammula’s LIB. He said Sekhar Kammula knows the knack of narrating simple stories of simple people in the simplest way. He places us in the world he had created and makes us feel a part of it, which is very difficult. He wrote on his Twitter page, if you have watched Happy Days along with your friends watch LIB also with your friends and again with your family.
