Known for his sensitive film making techniques with strong emotional brilliance, Sekhar Kammula, the director of classic hits such as "Anand" and "Happy Days" has, in fact, lost his touch for a while. After delivering two flops with 'Life is Beautiful' and 'Anaamika', Sekhar Kammula has returned to the genre of love stories after a long gap. Let us see, how far this film will bring Sekhar’s Midas touch back on screen.

NRI Varun(Varun Tej) comes down to a rural village in Telangana to attend the wedding ceremony of his brother (Raja) and meets Bhanumathi (Sai Pallavi), the bride's sister. They get attracted to each other and start finding out about themselves. As time passes by, love blossoms between the couple but they both do not disclose their love for each other. After going back to the US, Varun finally comes forward and proposes to Bhanu who in turn reject’s Varun’s proposal.

Why did Bhanu reject Varun’s proposal? What is the family drama behind this? and how does the pair end up marrying each other? That forms the rest of the story.

The first half of the film is so good that one is bound to expect the fun and romance to continue which sadly does not. Even though there is good drama, the pace of the film goes down a bit. The climax looks a bit hurried up as Varun’s change of mind could have been showcased in a more effective manner. The entire story is quite predictable so do not expect major twists and turns.

Varun Tej looks super dashing in the film. Even though his role will look as if the heroine dominates him but Varun’s calmness and the ease with his emotions make the film quite heart warming. This is the kind of film that an actor of his age should be doing and Varun is bang on this time.

Though it is a love story, as expected, it is the heroine who gets complete dominance. The story is more about Bhanumathi, played by Sai Pallavi, than Varun. And in the role of Bhanumathi, debutante Sai Pallavi (who played the role of a lecturer in Malayalam's Premam) steals the show. It is her show from the start to finish. Right from the first frame, she mesmerizes you completely. Be it her screen presence, Telangana accent and the way she carries the emotional scenes, she is a show stealer. She is not what can term a conventional beauty (she has pimples on her face), but the girl-next-door looks and performance win over. Post-Fidaa, Sai Pallavi will be an even bigger rage all over.

Veteran actor Sai Chand as heroine’s father is quite memorable and gives an honest performance. Satyam Rajesh evokes good laughs. Sharanya Pradeep as Sai Pallavi's sister and Raja has done a decent job as well. All the supporting cast do well in their respective roles.

Director Shekhar Kammula, he makes a comeback with a bang. The way he sets a simple story and narrates it with some good entertainment will be loved by the family audience big time. Shekar is at peaks when it comes to romance and his stamp is all over Sai Pallavi’s character as she is shown in a super strong manner who cares for her family and ambitions. Direction wise, Sekhar adopted a commercial touch to the second half though movie turns a bit slower in both the halves.

Music by Shaktikanth is a major asset for the film. All the songs are set perfectly into the narration. Vijay C Kumar’s camera work captured Telangana natural beauty and USA locations so beautifully. Marthand K Venkatesh’s editing is also rational portraying the emotion poignantly. Shakthi Kanth’s re-recording is pleasant enhancing the depth in the narrative. Production standards from Dil Raju are just satisfactory.

On the whole, 'Fidaa' is one of the best love stories made in the recent times. The film will be loved by the audience who seek realistic love stories and can bear slow pace. This is not for all. At the box-office, the film is bound to do well in the overseas and A-centers.
