One of the finest performances by Sharwa and @Sai_Pallavi92 Brilliant first half and good second half. Very good songs & Picturization. @hanurpudi is one of the underestimated director in Tollywood. Don’t know why he is not been encouraged. Don’t miss it. #PadiPadiLecheManasu

Hanu Raghavapudi has a unique has a different style in making love stories. He has already proved the same with ‘Andala Rakshasi’ movie and he did it again with ‘Padi Padi Leche Manasu’. His brisk narration and beautiful execution of script will definitely strike the chord with the audience. The production values of SLV Cinemas are lavish.
Cinematographer Jay Kay did an amazing job. The visuals came out really well. The beautiful backdrop of Kolkata helped the visuals even more. Music by Vishal Chandrashekhar is too good. He not only gave some energetic songs but also scored a pleasant and terrific background score. The editing by Sreekar Prasad is clean.
