Dear - Movie Review
This is the story of a young pair, who wants to go to the US on different missions. While the boy being a software engineer plans to grab a job there and earn money, the girl has some other reason. The director has made a vain attempt to mould it to an interesting film. Bharat and Reema have played the lead roles in the film Dear, which is the dubbed version of Tamil movie Yuvan Yuvathi.

Kalyan Krishna (Bharat) and Nisha (Reema Kallingal) are very eager to go to the US and accidentally meet at passport office. However, their first encounter begins with a quarrel. However, after a few meetings, they become friends and then lovers. Kalyan Krishna decides to marry Nisha and take her to US with him. But Kalyan"s father had other plans to get him married to some other girl. So, he decides to kidnap Nisha. Is Nisha in real love with Kalyan? What Kalyan does to save Nisha? What is the actual reason behind Nisha"s eagerness to visit US? Answers to all these questions form part of the climax.

Performance:
Bharat is okay in his role. Reema performed well than her looks. Sampat, who played the role of Kalyan"s father, has done justice to his role. Santanam has tried to tickle the funny bones of audiences. Again, Satyan"s comedy track is quite irritating. However, as the story has no Telugu nativity, the film lacked the necessary punch and the Telugu audiences failed to accept the story. Moreover, the director revealed the entire story in the first half itself and this had an adverse impact on the film, as the film appeared to have been dragged in the second. However, the director moulded the climax scenes in a decent manner. Most of the sequences in the second half remind us of our Telugu hit film Bommarillu. Some of the action scenes and the songs were placed at wrong timing and disrupts the flow of the subject.

Technical:
Dialogues are average and not so impressive. Camera work too is not so appealing and the cinematographer failed to avoid dull light all through the movie. Vijay Antony"s music is not so appealing. However, his background score is okay. The editing part is very poor. In fact, there are lots of jerks and some scenes were cut abruptly. The director, who himself penned the screenplay, have failed to do justice.

Remarks:
It can be suggested to audiences to watch the movie till interval and return home. The second half is completely poor and dragged. The slow pace of the narration in the second half tests the patience of audiences.
