J Prabhakar Reddy's picturisation is another big attraction in Romance. The cinematographer has done brilliant work in song sequences, which are going to be visual treat.
Other Technical Departments
Departments like costumes, makeup, art direction and locales play predominant role in making a youth-centric movie interesting. So in Romance, all these departments have done commendable job. Editing is also good.
Darling fame writer Swamy, who is turning director with Romance, has tried his best to prove his mettle. He has complete grip over the temp of the film. Besides direction, he has also handled departments like story, screenplay and dialogue, and has given justice to them. His dialogues are funny and have a punch.
Overall, Romance is good entertainer, which youth will like to watch again and again. But when compared to Maruthi's previous productions Bus Stop and Ee Rojullo, this movie is not upto the expected mark. The film suffers from slow-paced narration, lack of entertainment quotient. Its double meaning dialogues may stop family audience coming to theatres.
