Review Fair and Lovely & earn 20 DM Points*
Manu is a happy go lucky guy with the only intention of spreading love everywhere. What is to be a fun act turns out serious when Manu (Prem) accidently steps into a house which is a brothel, he finds himself locked in with a prostitute (Shwetha) after a raid in that house.
The two characters start talking and after an initial discussion, they both open up with their stories, one of love and the other of love and tragedy. During the narrations of the stories both characters reveal what in their past has made them what they are today. How telling each other their stories make them realize a lot about the other's world and how the story turns to an unexpected end is the crux.
Lovely Star Prem has essayed his role well and Shweta Shrivatsa has shown her acting prowess. Cameos by Anu Prabhakar and Vijay Raghavendra are noteworthy.The way Director Raghuram has portrayed a story with a social message and a tight script is a delight. Harikrishna's music could have been better, but as Prem can dance one song is a nice watch. While the country battles colour discrimination and Fair and Lovely cream being its worst enemy, this movie with the same name brings out a social message of a different kind.
