Success is what decides our stand in any profession or industry we choose. Without success, no one cares anyone. There is a lot of effort that goes into this and film industry is not an exception. Here, everything plays an important role in the success. A success decide everything and it helps them secure the market and get better opportunities in every way. Raj Tarun is an actor who debuted into films from short films and scored some decent hits in the beginning of his career. After that with the bad choices he made, he is now in a lean phase of not having success. He is now coming with the movie named “Lover” under the direction of Aneesh Krishna, produced by Dil Raju under his Sri Venkateswara Creations. Lets see how it works on us as it is released into theatres.


Raj Tarun in Lover
Raj Tarun in Lover

Raj (Raj Tarun) is the best custom bike maker who gets admitted into hospital with a bullet wound he gets while going to Bangkok. He comes across Charitha (Riddhi Kumar), a nurse in that hospital and falls for her. He tries a lot to get his love reciprocated and finally succeeds. At the same time, Charitha challenges her superiors in the hospital for the doubtful happenings in the hospital. On a good day, Raj and Charitha go for an outing to Gandikota, where they share their dreams and all that after which they are attacked by a gang when Raj is in distance from Charitha, smoking. Who are they? What happens in the hospital? How Raj solve these all problems? These questions form rest of the story.

Cast and performance

Raj Tarun has played the role of Raj in as usual way. This is a very easy role for him as it resembles many of his previous roles. The Rayalaseema slang he uses seems a bit awkward. Riddhi Kumar as Charita, a Malayalee nurse in a Andhra hospital is good. She looks very innocent in her role. Rajeev Kanakala is good. Revathi has done fine job in her role. Subbaraj and Ajay are nice. Sachin Khedekar is nice. Satyam Rajesh, Praveen and others in hero’s friend gang are nice. Raja Raveendra and Jeeva are good as superiors of Charitha in hospital.

Routine story


Lover is a story of a boyfriend who is trying to save his girlfriend from the bigger problems she face while fulfilling her duties. This is the story we have been seeing in Telugu movies from a long time and nothing is new to rave about. This routine story is filled with an okay first half which runs with the premise of hero trying to win heroine’s heart in a very cinematic way where “Everything is fair in love and war” clearly take upper hand over the mindset and sensibilities of heroine. Second half is filled with everything that a Telugu hero do to save his girl from the bad. Director Anish Krishna has done an okayish job with this movie. He has taken a very well known story and told it in a simple way adding the most routine premise and filled it with some beautiful songs composed by various composers. To sum up, Lover is a movie which neither entertain nor bore you off.
