Em Pillo Em Pillado is a clichéd snoozefest. The film is so torturous that you'd feel that a tele serial is far more creative. The first half of the film which is one fifteen minutes is completely woven around the pranks that Ram (Tanish) and Bhadra (Pranitha) play on each other and the second part on how they fall in love, exchange places and unite the warring families.
The direction too is so bland and there is nothing to look forward too. New girl Pranitha is a younger version of Priya Raman, she is quite okay but the lead pair talk too much and instead forget to act. Surprising Tanish has chosen an overwrought script in which he has very little to do. The songs come in at regular interval in the first half but after a while you wonder if the director has forgotten to add a few more. There is no relief in the form of comedy or songs post-interval.
Em Pillo Em Pillado is an utter waste of time and money, the filmmaker has taken the audience for granted. Writing a word more on the movie is like insulting the intelligence of the moviegoer. Strictly avoidable..Em chettho, em cheedaaramo!
