Sumanth Ashwin Columbus Telugu Movie ReviewWhat is the film about?
How Ashwin (Sumanth Ashwin) discovers true love between two girls in his life.

How is Sumanth Ashwin’s performance?
Except for the fact that it’s an age appropriate role for Sumanth Ashwin there is hardly anything else to say. The actor tries hard to appeal but he simply lacks the charm required for such part to click with the audience. There is this naive wonderment kind of look plastered on his face which could be the only possible likeable onscreen aspect about him. But how long can he survive on that aspect alone?

Ramesh Samala Columbus Telugu Movie ReviewDirection By Ramesh Samala?
Direction by Ramesh is weak and lacks focus. That the film is going to be a predictable fare is known from the outset, it therefore becomes imperative that the narration be tight to hold the audience interest but that’s not the case here. There is very little story progress in first half and when it actually begins to show, it leaves with an underwhelming feeling till the end. Even in this predictable outing one can see number of scenes where better direction would have resulted in far more engaging output.

Seerath Kapoor Columbus Telugu Movie ReviewSeerath Kapoor, Mishti Chakraborthy and other artists?
Seerat Kapoor and Misthi are the two heroines in the film. The former gets the meaty role among the two and she tries her best, much like the hero, to convince but unfortunately silly and contrived presentation never let’s that happen. Misthi has smaller role in comparison which is made to look like a completely dumb character by the end. There are some recognizable names like Prudhvi, Rohini and Nagineedu etc playing supporting parts but none mange to create an impact. Comedians Sapthagiri and Sai are utterly wasted as they disappear midway in the film.

Jithin Roshan Columbus Telugu Movie ReviewMusic and other departments?
Music by Jithin Roshan is just about okay for a love story with a song or two being decent. The background score is poor. Editing is messy whereas cinematography is not up to the mark. Dialogues could have been way better. They fail to provide the emotional appeal required for films like this to click.

Highlights Columbus Telugu Movie ReviewHighlights?
Couple of scenes towards the end.
Few comedy scenes.

Routine and outdated story.

Drawbacks Columbus Telugu Movie ReviewAlternative Take
This is a done to death deal as far as story is considered. Films like these have to run on incredible music and chemistry between lead pair’s. That would be an alternative take for the given story or simply go for a realistic narration by giving more focus on Misthi’s character and showing how her ambitious nature contradicts with true love nature of hero.
