Predictable teen romance

Bus Stop (Lovers Adda)
Telugu (A)
Cast: Prince, Sri Divya, Khanna, Hasika, Muralikrishna, Rakshita, Sai Kumar Pampana, Rao Ramesh
Director: Maruthi

GenX’s youthful romance and parental pinpricks that seek to nip them in the bud are director Maruthi’s familiar occupations. So, basking in the success of his earlier Ee Rojullo, Maruthi tries an encore seeking to present the angst of modern day youth and their flashy lifestyles in Bus Stop and how it becomes the bone of contention with their parents.

With an ensemble setpiece of four cupid capers, Maruthi’s Bus Stop sees him pit the boys against parental pressure that seeks to thwart them as their dalliances go against acceptable custom.

What, however, spoils the boisterous Bus Stop is the double-entendre dialogues, digital delinquencies, teen pregnancies, and parents hell-bent on blighting the love lives of their children.

While Sreenu and Shailaja’s romance forms the main track, Muthu’s belief in flitting from one girl to another like buying SIM-cards; Kanna’s one-sided affair with Seema; and a papa’s darling girl bowing to his whims and dictates form the other strands.
Despite its flaws, Bus Stop may still attract the urban youth.
