A woman in hand is worth two in the heart - or anywhere else, for that matter - is Chandu's motto. And you gotta give it to him, the women are worth a handful (we could say more on this, but raving about women for more than 2 sentences isn't among the 7 habits of highly effective reviewers - and anyway, you get the point). Only, life can't go along like that, can it? Hence Prematho Raa.

First things first. When a movie starts 10 minutes early on the second day of its showing, you begin to wonder if there isn't something amiss. And your fears would be validated in the first half an hour of 'Prematho Raa' itself - the initial part of the movie is the very definition of predictability. So we can only figure that the sympathetic dude in the projector room probably decided to start with what's new!

Chandu (Venkatesh) is the younger son of a rich family, and he's quite a promiscuous playboy. Needless to say the family is worried about his future, but an astrologer predicts a change in him that will be brought about by, yes, a girl. And in the next scene, the amazingly sensuous Geeta (Simran) makes her entrance. Isn't it all path-breakingly refreshing so far?

Chandu woos her in an admittedly novel way, and this even makes for some laughs. As is his wont, he has his fun and leaves her in the lurch. Now comes twist number one (there are many more to come) - Chandu's elder brother Vijay is getting married to his (Vijay's) love. And this lady stops the wedding at the 11th hour by telling the family how Chandu cheated her sister, Geeta. Beep beep beep... interval.

The only way Chandu can get his beloved brother married is to convince Geeta that he's become a totally changed man. The rest of the movie is taken up by this exercise - pointless or not. The climax itself is at times believable and at others practically laughable. Especially the scene where Simran is running along Tank Bund (in the wrong direction, I might add) trying to stop Chandu at the airport.

The first three songs are brilliant in almost every way - choreography, locales, music and even relevance to the story line, an almost extinct species in today's movies. After that the whole song-and-dance routine just falls to pieces. Someone please tell the director that just putting a bevy of babes into every song will not add class to it.

The comedy track is quite funny, and never does the hamming get too much. The girls in the songs and partly in the storyline are gorgeous - and never does the director miss an opportunity to showcase where the ladies' real talents lie.

This is a good movie for 3 hours of total time pass.

How can a principled lady like simran sleeps with the Hero? This
is something hard to believe...she is shown as a tough prey but after this she looks easier than a hooker waiting at the Abids bus stop!

A good movie with beautiful songs and comedy.Overall it is quite good movie.Venky's and Simran's performances are good.The base line of the story is nothing new but the director done a great job with his direction.An old story told with different angle.The people must think a bit what for the film is made.There is a good message for the youth.
