Editorial Reviews

Siddu is the son of an over-protective business man. Every decision of his is made by his father, which leads him into frustration. He half-heartedly agrees to become engaged to a rich man's daughter, but then falls for a middle-class man's daughter called Hasini. The film focuses on his realization that he has to stand on his own and come out of his father's protective shell- and try to succeed in love.

There are a lot of dance scenes with the usual great colorful costumes and some spectacular dancing.

Bommarillu is a modern classic of South Indian cinema - it is not a Bollywood film because it is in Telugu rather than Hindi and was produced in Hyderabad (I think) rather than Bombay. Usually it is very difficult to find these films for sale if you don't live in India, which is why I was very glad to see it available on here.
About the film: it is one of the most vibrant, colorful, and sweet movies I've ever seen. I agree with the previous reviewer that Genelia D'Souza lights up the screen with her presence, beauty, and surprisingly good acting. There is another wonderful Genelia film called Happy; perhaps someday Amazon will provide that as well! Siddharth is also adorable and a joy to watch.
I really only found two flaws in this film (the reason I did not give five stars) First, there are two or three scenes that are quite boring. The confrontation scene between Siddhu and his father near the end is one of them. It goes on longer than it should and takes away from the drama. The other flaw is the English subtitles. This isn't the fault of the movie itself, but in any case they are not very well-done subtitles and as a result they are a bit distracting.
The music of this film is certainly a big plus. The settings (especially the home of the male protagonist) are lovely and make you feel like you are in India while watching. Those who are used to the whole "guy knows nothing about girl but 'loves' her because she's beautiful, guy is not very attractive and girl shouldn't like him but does anyway" plot of most Indian films will be pleasantly surprised by this film. It is a romantic film, but it is completely believable and moves gracefully (aside from the scene I mentioned earlier).
All in all, Bommarillu is a completely entertaining, lovely and mood-boosting film that you can watch with anyone and that you will probably want to watch over and over again.

I loved this movie even though it is typical in many ways for Indian movies. There was the dancing, the romance, the triangle, the domineering father. But the vivacious personality of the female lead carries the entire production. There are very few Bollywood stars like her. She does not get by on sheer beauty, but her presence makes everyone happier, even though her lover's family are against her from the start and try to shun her. But she teaches a lesson about love and happiness that shames them. There are a lot of dance scenes with the usual great colorful costumes and some spectacular dancing. After seeing nearly 100 Indian movies, this is the first one I wanted to watch again immediately after seeing it for the first time.

Just how amazing is Genelia D'Souza? (answer: pretty damn amazing!) After watching Jaane Tu... ya jaane na (DVD) and now this one, BOMMARILLU, I am entirely sold on this girl. BOMMARILLU (meaning "Dream House" or "Toy House") reunites Genelia with young actor Siddharth Narayan, with whom she'd earlier co-starred in the film Boys- DVD. Here, their chemistry is even better.

Like most Indian cinema, this one's central theme revolves around young romance being threatened by the lovers' disapproving parents. To be more specific, it's about young Siddu (Narayan) and his domineering father engaged in a veiled tug-of-war. Siddu's dad, from word one, has controlled every facet of Siddu's life, from what he wears down to how he plays board games. Siddu retaliates by getting drunk with his homies as they talk smack about their parents and by applying for a bank loan to start up his own business, this without his father's knowledge. The final straw drops when his dad arbitrarily arranges Siddu's marriage to a girl he doesn't even know. Behind his father's back, a drunken Siddu heaps on the abuse.

And wouldn't you know it, just as Siddu becomes engaged, he bumps into the girl of his dreams, and by "bumps into" I mean they accidentally headbutt each other in passing. The girl is Hasini (Genelia, of course), a happy-go-lucky college girl who definitely walks her own path. Hasini is carefree and independent and tends to go out on midnight walks to buy ice cream.

Wonderful subtitled Teluga film with great visual splicing and fast paced dialogues. Highly enjoyable modern but tasteful dancing and singing . Very well done by all behind the camera and in front. The topic will be pertinent to all family members and never does it go preachy or sour.

Plot...

Young man in his mid twenties shown becoming more and more frustrated with his loving and protective father smothering him. Constant choices are made for him but not by him. This includes everything from the clothes on his back , to how to chew his food. His introduction is shown literally screaming and then ranting a portion of the story to a total stranger who he was venting on. His explanation is seen via a flash back with his sociable but overbearing father standing outside a dressing room where clothes are being hand picked for him by his dad and handed over to him like he's still ten years old. As the story progresses he is seen continuing the story you are watching to a woman on a motorcycle he's riding behind , a cabbie and then finishing the story to the lady on the bike again at the end. His dad is actually a nice guy but he just doesn't know when to let go of the bicycle and let his kid try to balance on his own. He constantly asks his son what he wants; but he never listens long enough for the answers. He presumes to know what his son wants, thinks, feels, needs...it would of course be what his dad wants for him. GAHHHH. The frustration is making his head explode.

Enough is enough. He has maintained that he will have a love match like his friends. That two things remain that he must choose to survive in his life...his job and his wife. They start to look around for a wife for him.
