Konchem Ishtam Konchem Kashtam (English: Little Love Little Difficulty) is a 2009 Telugu romantic comedy-family drama film directed by debutante Kishore Kumar Pardasani (Dolly), starring Siddharth and Tamannaah with Prakash Raj, Ramya Krishna, Brahmanandam in supporting roles, whilst the music was scored by critically acclaimed trio Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy.[1] The film was released on 5 February 2009. It has won three Nandi Awards and three CineMAA Awards, while Ramya Krishnan won the Filmfare Award for Best Supporting Actress - Telugu. It has been remade in Bengali as Romeo (2011). There was also a Nepali version Mayako Barima starring Rajesh Hamal. It has been dubbed into Tamil under the same title.


Geeta (Tamannaah) grows up in a village, under the shade of her doting father Subramanyam (Nassar) who takes care of everything for her and she is equally attached to him. She comes to Hyderabad for higher studies and stays at her uncle, Gachibowli Diwakar's (Brahmanandam) house. There she meets with Siddharth/Siddhu (Siddharth), friend of her cousin. Eventually they grow close and fall in love.

Though Siddhu was a pplayful, carefree young chap, he has problems at his home as his parents are divorced. He reveals that to Geeta and tells her that he is coming to her village to meet his father. There he asks Geeta's hand in marriage but Subramanyam doesn't agree. He says that he couldn't marry his daughter to a person whose parents are divorced. He wants to give his daughter in a big family but at least he wants his parents to be together. Siddhhu asks him whether he would agree to marriage if his parents reunite and Subramanyam agrees to that.

From then on start the efforts and trials of both Siddhu and Geetha to get Prakash (Prakash Raj) and Rajyalakshmi (Ramya Krishna) together. One night, when Prakash is driving Siddhu to his mother's home, they talk about when his parents separated. His father understands his feelings and what he's trying to say, and his father answers "that he couldn't have done anything,his mother just left him." To this Siddhu answers, "No, you should have gone after her. You should have never let her go." Even after this talk with Prakash, Geeta and Siddhu have lots of failures, but eventually Siddhu unites his parents together and Geeta's father, Subramanyam, also unites the other lovers, Geeta and Siddhu in this fun loving family movie.

The album received overwhelmingly positive reviews from the critics. Bangalore Mirror review, said: "The intelligently localized sound in the trio’s Telugu debut does the trick".[3] Sheetal Tiwari of Bollyspice, in her four star review, summed up: "Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy have a created a totally different sound for KIKK. Do not be surprised if Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy make a habit of directing Telugu musicals because they have without a doubt left their mark".[4] Indiaglitz described the album as an "amalgamation of class, mass and western tunes".[5]
