On the other hand, Mounika (Sai Pallavi) is from an upper caste and is trying hard to get a job. Left with no choice, she joins Revanth’s dance class as a teacher. Sparks fly and the couple falls in love. The rest of the story is as to how the couple faces many issues in their relationship and come out successfully..

Even if stories about caste disparity have been picked up in the recent past by Tollywood, it’s not often that a film like Love Story is told with such care. And it's definitely not often that women's issues are shown in mainstream cinema. Watch the film if love stories with depth are your cup of tea..

Although it is a superb start today, It is doubtful and remains to be seen whether the film can succeed at the Box-office considering the challenging situation and the ordinary content. May have to end as an average at best..

Love Story does not look like the work of the director who delivered a cult-like Leader or a classic like Fidaa, not even close. Bottom line: Age Old Love Story.

Sekhar Kammula's Love Story featuring Naga Chaitanya and Sai Pallavi released amidst huge expectations.

All in all, despite slow narration, “Love Story” scores high on excellent performances from the lead pair, music, and some emotional sequences. But if you are looking for a cheerful romantic comedy, you might be disappointed. It is a sensible romantic drama with two important issues. Watch it for music, and the lead pair. Bottom line: Captivating music and Sai Pallavi's magic.

Love Story’ is a sensible drama that talks about important issues. Naga Chaitanya and Sai Pallavi’s performances, terrific music, and emotional scenes outweigh the bloated narrative. Do not look for ‘peppy’ romance, it is an emotional love story told realistically..

Love Story’ is entertaining in its first half, has few pleasant moments in the second half. The last 30 minutes get into a dark theme and are heavy on emotions. Youth viewers might find it a bit difficult because of the slow pace, but the good songs go a long way to compensate for this section of the audience. Overall, a good watch for a family audience and for Sekhar Kammula, Chay, and Sai Pallavi fans..

On the whole, Love Story is mature romantic drama that address key issues like caste system and gender inequality. Chay Akkineni is the biggest highlight of this film and the dramatic narration make things interesting. Barring the slow pace, this film has all the trappings to work at the box office and is a sensible film to watch out for..

Love Story is a love drama that touches a couple of social awareness topics, with the caste oppression angle being the more prevalent one. However, neither the love track nor the social awareness subplot is fully effective. The chemistry between the lead pair which is usually a mainstay in Sekhar Kammula’s films isn’t strong enough in Love Story. On the flip side, the lead pair deliver excellent performances and there are a few entertaining set of sequences here and there. Sekhar Kammula rolls out a partly gripping love drama..
