Sudheer babu has performed well and he showed a good improvement in his acting while he already proved that he is brilliant at dancing.
Nanditha is the right choice for the film and she is brilliant at expressions and ease in performance. She looked cute and is an asset for the movie. Praveen and Giri have done hilarious roles
Despite the medium budget, the film is technically high. Cinematography and music are assets for this horror genre flick while background score is elevating. Editing is crisp. Prabhakar Reddy’s direction is good despite simple storyline. Screenplay is effective while the dialogues are entertaining. Production values are good.
Prema Katha Chitram falls under horror genre yet the film will entertain with good comedy. The lead stars have done good job while Giri’s comedy is one of the assets of the film. PKC starts off slowly with few needless scenes but it picks up momentum and Nanditha has done extremely well during the pre-interval block while the second half is a fun-filled laugh riot. The Draupadi Vastrapaharanam scene is quite hilariously shot and the situational comedy worked well. Screenplay and dialogues along with re-recording are other assets besides the cast performances.Like several Maruthi films, this film also has few double-entrande. Despite few flaws, Prema Katha Chitram makes you glued to the screens for its right mix of horror and humor.
