Love blooms, however, they are forced to part ways due to an unfortunate incident. Six years later, they cross paths again, and this is when the story takes off. What happens next?

Performance: Varun Tej delivers his fantastic performance.  He looks handsome. He has intense eyes and good voice.

She looks cute at various point of times. Her character in the film can be considered as one of the best in her career. Vidyullekha Raman as Akka is good. Priyadarshi is hilarious throughout the movie. Suhashini as hero’s mother delivers her best.  Hyper Aadhi, Naresh and others perform accordingly.

The director has made sure that he has established all characters in a lovely way in the first half. All the songs   by SS Thaman are very good. The background score takes the film to another level. The  Cinematography by  George C Williams is pleasing to eyes. Especially the second half which is set in London looks super class. Editing is very good.

The performances of Varun Tej and Raashi Khanna are the major assets of  Tholi Prema.   If ignore the predictable story line, Varun Tej and  Raashi  will entertain  the audiences to the fullest. The visuals, melodies background score and the perfect casting make the movie watchable.
