Nanban is the official remake of the Bollywood blockbuster 3 Idiots starring Aamir Khan, Madhavan and Sharman Joshi in the main lead. Nanban has Vijay, Jeeva and Srikanth as the leading actors. The movie has Ileana as the leading actress opposite Vijay.
Though the storyline is same as the original 3 Idiots, the special treatment of Director Shankar is the main reason for the success and appreciation for the movie Nanban. It is expected that the same magic of director Shankar will work wonders in Tollywood also.
Vijay is an engineering student in the movie Snehithudu with very less interest in education. He is the most notorious student of the engineering college at the same he is excellent in academics also.
Both Srikanth and Jeeva are obedient children of their parents and co-students of Vijay in the same college.
Vijay fall in love with Ileana. Ileana is the daughter of the principal of the college.
Director Shankar has given an excellent touch to the movie Snehithudu as in the case of Nanban, its Tamil version.
Vijay has given an outstanding performance as the leading actor. All other actors including Jeeva and Srikanth are brilliant in the given space in the movie Snehithudu. All three together are adorable as 3 Idiots of South, once again as is in the case of Nanban.
The music of the Snehithudu by Harris Jayaraj has also received great appreciation. The magic of camera work by Manoj Paramahamsa in the movie Nanban has been faithfully carried over to the movie Snehithudu also. Editing is also remarkably sharp and adds that crispyness to the movie.
Ileana's character could have been given more space. She has remained a mere an eye candy in the movie. There is hardly any scope for her to exhibit her hystrionics.
Snehithudu is a complete family entertainer. Great movie to enjoy.
