Story : Varun (Nithiin) is a commitment phobic hippy who lives a carefree life drifting from one country to another. He lands in Spain where he comes across Hayati (Adah) a conventional Telugu girl. He and is smitten by her immediately and keeps following her seeking a kiss much to her chagrin.

Movie Review : The kiss of the lips has been used a cinematic tool to signify a happy ending in countless movies. But in this movie it becomes the plot itself. The entire first half of the movie is designed to be a build up to an impending lip lock. Since setting his eyes on a bandana clad Hayati at a picturesque port side in Spain, Varun is consumed by the desire to, well, kiss her. "I want a deep lip kiss," he says flatly in their second meeting barely a day after faking a heart attack to get hold of her phone number.

For a vagabond hippy our man seems to be a great hurry to get to the point. For him kissing is the only way of expressing how much he likes her. Nuvvante naaku chaala chaala chaala ishtame, adi maatalona cheppaleka mudde adigane...goes a song which loosely translates into I like you very very very much and can't express my fondness for you in words which is why I want to kiss you.

There is another episode where Varun breaks into a monologue about how there is a connection between the pressure of the lip-lock and the underlying emotion between the kissers.

Sadly it all turns out to be nothing more than verbal foreplay. When the moment of reckoning arrives, it turns out to be all hot air and no lips. At an expansive bull ring, the lovers are shown wrapped up in a cloth the matadors use to play the bulls! The audience is left to contend with a marker that clocks 1 hour 42 minutes! What an anticlimax. We're afraid it's that kind of a film, all show and no substance.

Nithiin looks convincing in the role of a super stylized hippy with a pony tail, spiked hair, torn denims and ankle lengths shoes. The actor tries hard to pack in some dash in the performance, but we're afraid his clothes might just outshine his acting. Adah Sharma looks like a natural actress and does a decent job.

The cinematography and music is what makes it seem much better than it really is. The visuals are breathtakingly beautiful. The hangover of Iddarammayilatho notwithstanding, the imagery of the most scenic landscapes of Spanish country side and the dark underbelly of Goa offers an indulgent backdrop for the proceedings. Music by Anoop Rubens is perhaps the most romantic aspect of the film.

Note : It like one long sight gag with plenty of breathtaking visuals and pleasant music, you'll be fine as long as you don't try to make sense of it all.
