Sai Dharam Tej has always been a sought-after hero from the Mega family, with the grace of Megastar Chiranjeevi and style of Power Star Pawan Kalyan. But the actor hasn’t had a good time with his movies not performing to his level. Though Tej has done good films like Jawaan, the last 5 movies of the star hero didn’t do well at the box-office. Karunakaran, the director of Pawan Kalyan’s Tholiprema joins with Sai Dharam Tej with Tej I Love You. Featuring Anupama Parameswaran as the female lead, the movie is out in cinemas today. And here is out take on SDT’s Tej I Love You.

Cast: Sai Dharam Tej, Anupama Parameswaran
Director: A. Karunakaran

After starting a music band troop with his friends, Tej meets Nandini and falls in love with her. But Nandini loses memory after an accident. Learning about her family and the issues she has been facing, Tej tries to sort things out. How did he bring Nandini to the normal stage and how did Tej win his love back forms the rest of the story.
Sai Dharam Tej has delivered his best performance as a lover boy in Tej I Love You. Coming out of his mass image, it is good to see Tej in uber cool look. Sai Dharam Tej has carried the film to an extent. Credit goes to Karunakaran as well.
Anupama Parameswaran has made her presence as remarkable as the whole movie runs on her character. The actress looks pretty and has done complete justice to her character, is a major asset for the film, like every Karunakaran heroine looks.
Anish Kuruvilla plays the father of Anupama and has done a quite decent job.
Rest of the cast Viva Harsha, Jayaprakash, Pavitra Lokesh, Surekha Vani, Prudhviraj have done their parts well enough.
Sai Dharam Tej performance
Anupama Parameswaran Performance
Few comedy scenes between the lead pair
Entertaining First half
Routine story by Karunakaran
Unimpressive taking and execution
Predictable and cliche Second Half
The first half of the film is entertaining and okayish with a few comedy scenes involving the lead pair, and the friends’ gang. The memory loss scenes may not appeal well to the audience. The interval scene doesn’t impress leaving the audience not much to expect. But Tej and Anupama impress with their performances. The second half of the film touches multiple genres – love, and family leaving the audience nothing but a routine half from Karunakaran. Songs by Gopi Sundar aren’t up to his level, but background music sounds good at parts. Cinematography by Andrew is appreciable.
Tej I Love You does well at parts but on a whole, the movie falls short. A few comedy in the first half are good but the comedy track is flat just like the movie narration. Karunakaran fails to impress and makes his mark, as the story looks too routine remembering his flops. The direction seems outdated with some clitche scenes. On a whole, Tej I Love You could be watched for the main lead performances, few comedy scenes, and cinematography.
