Pitta Kathalu Story


Pitta Kathalu is made up of four separate stories about four different women. Ramula, by Tharun Bhasker (director) and the plot, is based on rural Telangana, which kicks off the series. Ramula aka Saanve Meghana loves Ram Chander (Naveen), the son of an ex-MLA. As the plot progresses, this relationship is put to the test.

'Meera' is the title of the second story. Meera aka Amala Paul is a pregnant writer whose considerably older by age husband suspects her of having a fling with Abbas, a mutual friend. 

In third place, the most difficult story is narrated. 'xLife,' by Nag Ashwin (Director) of 'Mahanati,' is a futuristic drama. The creator of a virtual reality corporation, Vik aka Sanjith Hegde, associates the concept of love with sex. According to him (Vik) a man and a woman do nothing except make love and have children. Such a man is smitten by one of his staff, Divya (Shruti Hassan).

The fourth story takes place in Hyderabad. It focuses on two couples: Priyanka and her husband (Eesha Rebba and Avasarala), and Vivek and his wife (Satya Dev and Ashima). The plot revolves around how their personal lives are intertwined and what secrets are kept hidden.

Why should you watch Pitta Kathalu?

The film contains four stories, the most notable of which is Tharun Bhasker's Ramula, depicting rural Telangana. Everything in this short film, from the characters to the narration, is done so flawlessly. Sanvi and Abhay, the leads, are outstanding and deliver realistic performances. 

As the village belle, Saanvi is pretty stunning. Abhay, on the other hand, displays his worth yet again with superb screen presence and comic timing. However, Lakshmi steals the show as Swaroopakka. She is tacky, nasty, and authoritatively mouths the Telangana accent, and her sophisticated acting adds a lot of dimension to the film. 

The other narrative that stands out is Nandini Reddy's Meera. She (Nandini) departs from her usual love dramas to portray something different. Jagapathi Babu portrays the sceptical spouse convincingly, and the finale is satisfying. Amala Paul also performs admirably on her part. Eesha Rebba is wonderful in her performance, but Ashima Narwal was much better since he had more emotion to portray on the screen. Sanjuth Hegde, who plays the main character in xLife, also does an excellent job.

Moreover, the production quality of this film is exceptional. The background music in Ramula by Vivek Sagar is excellent and enhances the proceedings significantly. Each short film's dialogue is well-written, and the editing is excellent. Likewise, each story's production design was fascinating.

Overall, Pitta Kathalu is a modest collection of four short stories, some of which work well and others of which are acceptable. However, the concept is sound, and the anthology is a worthy effort. It elicits mixed emotions, worth viewing.
