Love Me” is a Telugu-language horror thriller movie written and directed by Arun Bhimavarapu and produced under the banner of Dil Raju Productions. The film stars Ashish Reddy, Ravi Krishna, and Vyshnavi Chaitanya in lead roles, with Simran Chowdary, Rajeev Kanakala, and others in supporting roles. The music is composed by M.M. Keeravani, the cinematography is by P.C. Sreeram, and the editing is by Santosh Kamireddy. Despite being written and directed by a debutant, the film generated significant buzz due to being produced under the Dil Raju banner. Let’s see how the movie is!


Arjun, played by Ashish, is a YouTuber fascinated by ghosts and graveyards. He loves solving mysteries and often ignores warnings. He hears about a haunted and closed apartment where people are terrified of a ghost named Divyavathi. Intrigued, Arjun falls in love with this ghost and sets out to uncover her story. During his quest, he encounters many surprises. Arjun gets help from Prathap, played by Ravi Krishna, and Priya, played by Vaishnavi Chaitanya. Together, they work to solve the mystery of Divyavathi.


Debutant Arun Bhimavarapu tackled an interesting and rarely explored concept in Telugu cinema. The movie begins well with the ghost’s backstory, sparking interest in the viewers. After the story fast-forwards to the present, we are introduced to Arjun (Ashish) and Pratap (Ravi), the daring YouTubers who go to great lengths to solve mysteries. Pratap has a romantic side, whereas Ashish prefers darkness, even in his clothing. Both actors deliver decent performances in their respective roles.

Vyshnavi Chaitanya, as Priya, has little to contribute in the first half, mainly standing behind Pratap as his companion. Arjun sets out to solve the mystery of Divyavathi, a ghost residing in an apartment in the middle of a forest. Although it looks like a dense forest from above, when the trio explores, it resembles an abandoned park, which is confusing. The movie has a captivating start, and the pre-interval portion around Divyavathi maintains some interest. However, apart from these moments, there isn’t much to watch in the first half, making it just okay.

The second half is completely boring. It begins with a love track that is neither engaging nor romantic. The story moves too fast, causing a disconnect with the audience and missing the thrill factor. The only saving grace in the second half is Priya’s flashback. Apart from this, there is little to engage the audience. The filmmakers even hint at a sequel named “Kill Me.” Despite choosing a rarely explored subject, the director failed to deliver it in an engaging manner. As a horror thriller, it needed to be captivating to fully satisfy the audience.

The music by Keeravani garu is adequate; he provided what was needed for the film, but the songs are just okay and not memorable. The cinematography by P.C. Sreeram is impressive, with great visuals.

Overall, debutant Arun Bhimavarapu took an interesting concept but failed to deliver it effectively. The tagline of the movie is “Love Me – If you dare.” Watch it if you dare.


  • The concept of the film is fascinating.
  • The ghost’s backstory is intresting.
  • The music is good.


  • The first half is just okay.
  • The second half is boring.
  • There is a lack of proper execution.
  • The film lacks emotions.
  • Pacing issues.

Technical Aspects:

The production values are good. The music by Keeravani garu is fitting; he provided what was needed for the film, nothing more, nothing less. The cinematography by P.C. Sreeram is impressive, with great visuals.

Although the film’s concept is fascinating and rarely explored in the Telugu film industry, debutant director Arun Bhimavarapu failed to engage the audience. The movie starts well, but the interest eventually wanes, leading to an okay first half. The second half is boring with too much happening on screen, and nothing connects well. He could have taken more care in the narration.


“Love Me” starts with an intriguing concept and captivating visuals but ultimately fails to engage due to a weak second half and lackluster execution. Watch it if you dare, but it may not meet your expectations as a horror thriller.
