Form is temporary, class is permanent, which we are hearing since childhood but it doesn’t apply to our Telugu film industry where producers and heroes run behind or for directors who are in great form delivering hit films. Every hero tries to be in great form scoring blockbusters, minting good profits for producers and buyers. Ram Pothineni, who is trying to be in good form but it is failing with the story choices he is making. He scored a blockbuster with Kishore Tirumala in the form of “Nenu Sailaja” and acted a film under Santosh Srinivas in the name of “Hyper” which disappointed fans and movie buffs with its routine content. Now he is back with “Vunnadhi Okate Zindagi”, under the direction of Kishore Tirumala again. Let’s see how it works on us. *Spoilers Ahead*
Abhiram (Ram Pothineni) and Vasu (Sri Vishnu) are friends from childhood. Their bonding is in different level from the childhood itself. They never part in their life and once Vasu goes to Delhi on his professional work and during this time Abhi Ram gets to know Maha (Anupama Parameswaran) and they seem to get connected with the meeting and conversations they had. When Vasu returns they came to know that Vasu is already in love with Maha one sidedly and decided to marry her. They both decides on one thing and propose her in a meeting and asks her to choose one among them. Who is her choice? What happens next is the crux of story.
Cast and performance
Ram Pothineni as Abhi Ram is superb and he is believable in both the variations he has shown in his character for the movie. Sri Vishnu is good but he seemed to be given only silent and gentleman type characters in every movie. Anupama Parameswaran is good and she performed well in her character as Maha. Lavanya Tripathi looks nice and is good in her character as a wedding planner. Priyadarshi is funny and Kireeti Damaraju is fine.
Story of this Vunnadhi Okate Zindagi is simple but writer cum director Kishore Tirumala had written screenplay well and dialogues are written as required.
Songs composed by Rockstar Devi Sri Prasad are nice and goes well with youth for the catchy tunes and meaningful lyrics. He did a nice job in scoring background score for the movie. Cinematography by Sameer Reddy is beautiful as locations of Vizag. Editing is good. Art department did a nice job. Production values are rich.

Vunnadhi Okate Zindagi is the story of friendship beginning from the childhood. A friendship is never affected when we don’t have anyone in between. It spoils when someone comes in between without anyone’s knowledge. Abhiram and Vasu are friends from childhood and they never part from each other and they try to give each other good time. It is when a person in the name of Maha comes into their lives their friendship goes downside. Misunderstandings cope up and they part from each other. This movie is all about clearing their misunderstandings and going back into their friendship like before. Kishore Tirumala has done a superb job as a director and he has done outstanding job as a writer with his funny, witty and meaningful dialogues. His narration is slow at times but situational comedy and lively scenes dissolves it. This movie again proves that good writing never goes waste and even a simple story can be made into a successful one with perfect and meaningful writing. To summarize, Vunnadhi Okate Zindagi is meaningful celebration of friendship.
