Ye Maaya Chesave - Chemistry and Relevance today

It has been more than a decade since Ye Maaya Chesave, one of Tollywood’s most loved love stories, released. This Gautham Menon directorial changed the careers of Naga Chaitanya and Samantha Akkineni and seems to have initiated their extravagant affair. This film, its music and its dialogues are still widely remembered and often quoted.

The film first had everyone’s attention with its every song. The album of Ye Maaya Chesave is one of A.R. Rahman’s best works. Along with the music came the sizzling yet deep chemistry between the lead actors. Naga Chaitanya and Samantha were so promising as the characters Karthik and Jessi that they seemed deeply connected with the characters as well as with each other. They seemed to depict blossoming spring and harsh snowstorms simultaneously, building on a subtle yet extremely passionate love affair.

Although Naga Chaitanya as Karthik was memorable and delivered some very quotable dialogues convincingly, it was Samantha who stole the show. She was a thing of pure beauty to behold, in acting and in appearance.

The film, although relatively old, is still relevant and a popular choice among viewers. You can stream this film on Amazon Prime Video, on Aha! and on Youtube. Let us know your thoughts on the film in the comments below!
