 Performance:  Nikhil Siddhartha does a good job as Siddhu in this film. He is natural and believable. There are number  of dialogues for him and he delivered them well. Anupama Parameswaran looks cute and she has given a great performance. Sarayu is hilarious and the rest of the cast featuring names like Posani Krishna Murali do well with what they’re offered.  Ajay and Shatru’s characters don’t have much significance and they play regular villains in this drama.

 Technical: Basic story of the film explores love. It’s a love story between two people. One can feel the chemistry between Nikhil and Anupama Parameswaran though they don’t meet till the very end. Director Palnati Surya Pratap has handled the first half well. Screenplay should have been better. Cinematography is decent. Songs scored by Gopi Sundar are good. Background music is alright. Dialogues are decent. Editing needed a few improvements. Production is good. Production values by the GA2 banner and Sukumar Writings are decent.

 Analysis:  Overall 18 Pages is a decent love story. Palnati Surya Pratap has designed the first half in a breezy manner with good comic scenes. The climax is simple. While the first half has good magical moments, the graph drops in the second half. The proceedings are slow in the second half. There are a few dubbing issues. The flashback is routine and the thrilling elements lack punch.
