One thing that comes to the mind of audience after watching 'Crazy Boy' is that a new star is born through this film. Dilip Prakash who is making his debut in the film as a solo hero easily wins the hearts of the people by his performance and style.
'Crazy Boy' is a college love story with lot of commercial ingredients to it. The film tells the story of Arjun (Dilip Prakash) and Nandini (Ashika) who study in the same college and later become lovers. Though their thought process is same, one main difference between them is while Arjun hails from a poor family, Nandini is a rich sister of a multi-millionaire. Nandini's brother who supports the lovers, plays a double game by separating them. What happens next forms the crux of the film.
Though the story looks a little overused, it is the screenplay and narration which matters and kudos to screenplay writer Ajay Kumar and director Mahesh Babu in making a neat, youthful and engaging film. Apart from the screenplay and direction, Jessie Gift's music and Shekhar Chandru's cinematography adds valuable inputs to the overall film.
Dilip Prakash doesn't look like a newcomer and stuns everyone with his energy, style and performance. Ashika is also done a neat job when it comes to acting and dancing. Ravishankar is another highlight of the film with two different shades. The others have also done a commendable job.
See this film for a young star like Dilip Prakash.
