Siddhu (Siddharth) has a great life! He lives in a household full of people always catering to him. His father (Prakash Raj) gives him anything he wants. The family is very well off. What can he ask for, right? Wrong! Regardless of how perfect Siddhu's life is, he wants to make his own decisions. He wants to fall in love and want to be with the girl who makes him feel carefree - Hasini (Genlia D'Souza). With all the love a father can give his son, will he ever let his son walk his own path?
Since I have Siddharth fever cause I obviously love this guy! I had to watch Bommarillu. Ever since I saw Nuvvostanante Nenoddantana, I just had to watch Sid's Telugu and Tamil films!
Siddhu - the guy who has a double life. No one at home knows his anger and frustrations of pleasing his father. He wants to be his own person but is trapped between being a loyal son. Until he meets Hasini, never did he realize how uptight he was. He needed to be carefree, independent, and liveliness!
As I mentioned in the Nuvvostanante Nenoddantana review, I adored Sid since Rang De Basanti. Just couldn't get enough of the cutie pie.
If you like Kareena in Jab We Met, you'll fall in love with Genelia in Bommarillu. Hasini lives life to the fullest. Bubbly, beautiful, carefree - that's Hasini. She opens Siddhu's eyes and he is able to view life though her eyes.
Genelia is so freaking adorable. I wish her Bollywood films would portray her cuteness like her Tollywood films (still stuck between this film and Happy - which film I like her more in). Her voice is kiddish and cute but in Bommarillu, it seems sounds so childish. Regardless, she's great.
Aravind (Prakash Raj), Siddhu's father. He always looks out what is best for his family. Never had he thought about him controlling their lives. He always give, give, give. Prakash Raj has been in a lot of Tollywood films I've seen. Such an awesome actor.
Lakshmi - Siddhu's loving mother. She learns about Siddhu's yearn to be independent. Jayasudha plays the typical wife/mother. Stuck between being loyal to her husband or realizing her son needs to be free.
Kanaka (Kota Rao) - Hasina's loving father.
Music is great. I'm so addicted to Tollywood music - I must watch more! Telugu language is so beautiful. Found most of the songs on YouTube with English subs.
Song #1 - "Padaharanaala Telugu Juliet"
Siddhu is searching for his love, his Telugu Juliet.
Song #2 - "Kannulu Teriche"
Siddhu becomes more independent and carefree hanging out with Hasini
Song #3 - "Appudo Ippudo"
Siddhu and Hasini falling in love
Did you know that Sid actually sings this song himself? Thanks veracious for the interesting info.
Song #4 - "Bommanu Geesthee"
Siddhu and Hasini - more in love
Song #5 - "Lalu Darwaza"
Song #6 - "Nammaka Thappani"
Hasini makes the decision to leave Siddhu. He now realizes how much he misses her.
Although I love Allu Arjun to death and wanna have his babies, I do prefer Siddharth's movies over Arjun's. The type of movies Siddharth has been in, I enjoy more. The excution of the film is portrayed very well. I love my action-hero Arjun but do love the cute-lovey-dovey-love-struck Siddharth too.
I'm so torn that Bollywood plans to remake this wonderful Tollywood film. Why? Oh why? Keeping Genelia but replacing Siddharth with Harman? Are you kidding me???? The Bollywood version is titled It's My Life. If you've never seen any Telugu films before, Bommarillu is a good film to start off with. Either that or Nuvvostanante Nenoddantana, both Siddharth starrers. Doesn't matter if you're not a fan of Siddharth, you'll fall in love with him in either films.
