Movie Review: Love Failure


Firstly, I thought I was going in to watch a straight Telugu film, not a dubbed one. With that out, let me talk about Love Failure.

M. Balaji has made some awesome short films. I absolutely love his work. He kinda makes you feel that it is you he's talking about. Love Failure is one such short film, unfortunately, one which is dragged for more than two hours. If you've seen his work before,there nothing new the film has to offer. He's got a couple of episodes from Mittai Veedu, and the rest is an extended version of the original nine minute Kadhalil Sothapuvathu Eppedi. He's even got most of the cast reprising their roles.

Siddharth is good in the leading role and really tries hard to woo you. Amala Paul is decent to look at, although I kinda felt her to be outta place. The dialogues are brilliant, music is decent, and direction spot-on. However, the draggy never-ending story pulls the film down. First half is pacy and the second half makes you yawn. The biggest blunder, atleast for me, is that the film actually ain't about love failure; it's about infatuation failure. (I say that with a lot of experience. If this is love, then, argh, nevermind!!)

It's got its moments in abundant and reminds you about yourself a zillion times. But Love Failure fails to create the magic. It's more of a teenage love story (infatuation) with a predictable ending, and looks more like a youtube film than a commercial feature film. Bottom-line, it's not something you need to run to the theaters for, nevertheless, a decent watch.

Verdict: 7/10
