Padi Padi Leche Manasu (transl. A heart that keeps rising and falling) is a 2018 Indian Telugu-language romantic drama film written and directed by Hanu Raghavapudi. The film stars Sharwanand and Sai Pallavi while Priya Raman, Sampath Raj, Kalyani Natarajan, Murali Sharma, Priyadarshi, and Sunil play supporting roles.
The music was composed by Vishal Chandrasekhar with cinematography done by Jay Kay and editing by A. Sreekar Prasad. The film was finalized in December 2017 and shooting began in February 2018. Released on 21 December 2018, the film opened to mixed reviews at the critics. The film ended up as a commercial failure.
It is a Telugu-speaking community in Kolkata where a football player named Surya (Sharwanand) falls for a medical student named Vaishali (Sai Pallavi). The love story is not as simple as it appears to be. Surya starts trying to make Vaishali fall for him. After Vaishali falls in love with Surya and starts talking about marriage, Surya breaks up with her due to his fear of commitment as a result of his parents’ failed marriage. Vaishali tells him that exactly after a year, they will meet in Kathmandu, Nepal and decided whether they should get married or not.
Exactly after a year, the Nepal 2015 earthquake occurs, where Surya is searching for Vaishali. Simultaneously, Vaishali is searching for Surya in Kathmandu. In the earthquake Vaishali is injured and she asks her friend to tell Surya that she is diagnosed with retrograde amnesia and still acts as if she is fine, with her friends and family except Surya. So Surya tries to make her fall in love again, in a similar way he tried before. One day his father (who is a famous author) comes nearby to give a speech which is attended by Vaishali, Surya and Surya's mother. During the speech Vaishali realizes her lover for Surya and his love for her. She asks him to marry her, where he realises she hasn't lost her memory, infuriating him. In a struggle here, Vaishali faints and is admitted to the hospital where it is revealed that she actually has retrograde amnesia and told only Surya the truth and that she was slowly forgetting the things even in her daily life.
The movie ends with both of them getting married after a few months
