Hyderabad: After a long wait, Naga Chaitanya and Sai Pallavi's 'Love Story' released in theatres on Friday and the film is winning hearts all over. Directed by Shekar Kammula, the film is produced by Narayan Das K. Narang and Puskar Ram Mohan Rao under Sree Venkateswara Cinemas and Amigos Creations.

Revanth (Naga Chaitanya) and Mouni (Sai Pallavi) are two individuals who dream about making it big in their lives. But with all the challenges that come their way, will their families and society let them stay together?

Revanth comes to the city with this mother (Easwari Rao) from a small town in Nizamabad to make an identity for himself. He is a victim of caste disparity and believes that only hard work pays. Mouni also escapes to Hyderabad not just to escape from her family but also to get rid of a few baddies in her life. While she wants an IT job, Revanth wants to start a zumba center. The two find encouragement in each other and Mouni, an amazing dancer, decides to help Revanth until she finds a good job.

Once again, Shekar Kammula has worked on a sensitive subject and one that needs a lot of attention. While he shows that a big city welcomes everyone with love and warmth, the talented ones always have to wait for opportunities to prove their mettle. In a society that judges a couple and tells them what they cannot do, Revanth and Mouni find different places and time to meet each other.

Through this film, the director wants to tell people that in any house, it is not the women that need to be controlled but the men. Also, Revanth's dialogues about unemployment and his screams of frustration will remain with you long after the film.

Naga Chaitanya has delivered his career's best performance. He has never played such a sensitive character till now and has pulled it off quite well. Sai Pallavi is known for her performance and in this film, too, she has done a decent job. Her dialogues will stay with you.

Easwari Rao, Uttej, Devayani, Rajiv Kanakala, and other actors in supporting roles have given their best to make the film a huge hit. Just like any other Sheka Kammula film, 'Love Story' will also win hearts. The editing could have been a little crisp and to the point. Music by Pawan CH is soothing enough to make you melt into the story. Vijay Kumar's camera work is also nice.

On the whole, 'Love Story' is worth a watch this weekend and has opened the gates for many more films to hit the theatres soon.
