Story Details
Anand(Adith Arun) is a children’s film maker who is not interested in the institution of marriage. He has a lot of affairs and hits it off on the same level with Sri Lakshmi(Hebah Patel)as well. But to his bad luck, Sri Lakshmi falls in love with him. Upon learning his ideology, she breaks up with him. Rest of the story is as to how Anand changes his thought process and wins his love back.
Others Comment:
The better side of 24 Kisses is the subtlety with which it discusses about the physical needs in relationships; Ayodhya Kumar appears to be the rare Telugu filmmaker who doesn't resort to crassness in this zone. The interactions between the psychiatrist Murthy (Rao Ramesh) and Anand come with interesting slice-of-life humour. However, this thread is ailed by monotony soon. This is a film that should've been a lot about Anand's personal transformation. The director dilutes his character arc by weaving in a sob- flashback thread discussing the character's need to make films about children. There are too many conflict points to resolve, including a brawl at the bar. The emphasis on the number of kisses becomes trivial beyond a point. The film, as it progresses, appears to be as indecisive and confusing as its lead character. There are flashes of brilliance in the writing but nothing comes together.
