Mallika (Charmee) is a call girl, who makes an accident with her car in a drunk state dashing 1 writer Lalith(Rahul) after which she joins the latter in a hospital with the help of her friend Vamshi (Rao Ramesh). Lalith loses his eye sight and Mallika takes him to her home and digs deep into his life with which he reveals about his story about a singer Swathi and his love. Rest of the story concludes with Mallika helping for Lalith’s love.


Filmmakers have projected this as Charmi’s woman-centric film but she had hardly scope for any role. She looked good in the two songs. Her own dubbing didn’t work in anyway.

Rahul and Saranya fails to grab the audiences interest with their bad acting. Despite performance scope character as a blind, Rahul fails to impress.

Rao Ramesh, Chandra Mohan are wasted, Thagubothu Ramesh provides some comic relief, Ravi Babu, Surekha Vani filled the screens.

Technical Analysis

Music by Praveen and Posham is pretty mediocre. Awachamaina has good lyrics but the misplacement of song tests the viewers patience. Re-recording is okay in parts. Cinematography is nothing to boast of, Editing is pathetic. Production Values are poor.


Charmi looked beautiful in the film and she has got good screen presence but her role is limited and she just stays for first half an hour wrapping up her two songs and will appear only in the climax. Charmi’s role looked like an extended cameo. Prema Oka Maikam fails miserably in narration and presentation. Dialogues lack depth and look forcible; screenplay is inconsistent and quite predictable. Direction is pretty poor and one hour into the film, the plot goes off track highlighting supporting characterizations essayed by amateur actors. The film doesn’t provide any thrilling moments instead reminds us of many other films including the recent release Pavitra, Nuvvu Vastavani et al. The climax scenes are highly predictable and lacks interest.

Final Verdict

Prema Oka Maikam trailers, posters are misleading delivering wrong impression as Charmi’s woman-centric film. Still, it’s badly executed film. Stay away!!!
