Cast & Crew of 18 Pages
Nikhil does a wonderful job as Siddhu, so does Anupama as Nandini. These two bring a certain degree of dexterity to their characters, particularly toward the conclusion. Sarayu is quite funny, and the rest of the cast, which includes Posani Krishna Murali and Ajay, is able to get the most out of the material they are given.
The film is helped tremendously by the music of Gopi Sundar and the cinematography of A Vasanth. There are, however, some problems with sound when it comes to the dubbing in certain critical moments of the picture, which detract from the overall experience. This reviewer watched the film in a theatre, and the problems occurred there.
You could find that certain segments of the movie are too obvious, while others might strike you as being too sickly sweet. The whole “let’s talk to each other instead of gazing at our phones” discussion likewise appears to be over and finished with at this point. The problem is that the movie is never able to transcend the content, which sounds interesting on paper but doesn’t really come across that way on screen. In addition, Palnati is successful in making you want to see the entire movie, despite the fact that it has a number of problems, just so you can find out whether or not these two characters ever achieve their goals.
The Nikhil Siddhartha-starring Telugu movie Karthikeya 2, which was recently distributed all over India, has been making a lot of noise ever since it came out.

Nikhil Siddhartha shared with Pinkvilla in an exclusive interview how overwhelmed he was by the success of Karthikeya 2 and how much it meant to him personally. The actor most known for his role in Happy Days became emotional when thinking about his late father, Shyam Siddhartha, who died away on April 28.
Nikhil has been doing solid back to back films after Karthikeya 2 and he is now busy in shooting pan india film called ‘Spy’ helmed by Garry BH.
