Chandu (Nagarjuna) and Suri (Rajendra Prasad) are pilots.
They are thick friends. Indu (Raveena Tandon) and Padma (Kasturi)
are very good friends. Chandu gets married to Indu and Suri
and Padma become pregnant. Indu meets with a car accident
and she becomes ineligible to become a mother. Padma gives
birth to twins, Ram and Lakshman. Indu and Chandu adapt Ram.
After three years, bone-marrow cancer infects Lakshman. He
needs to be operated with bone marrow transplantation. When
Chandu asks the permission of Indu to use Ram's bone marrow
for Lakshman's opion as they are twins, Indu refuses and flees
to Delhi fearing that Chandu will force her to send Ram for
operation. Later on she realizes her mistake and alights the
flight to come back to his husband so that Ram can be useful
for the operation of Lakshman.
Pakistani militants hijack the flight and they divert the
root of the flight. Now, Lakshman is on deathbed waiting for
Ram. Ram is with his mother in a hijacked flight. You got
to watch this film about how Chandu rescues the flight and
put an end to the story.
Nagarjuna has done good job. But, due to the fact that the
film took two years in making, we can see Nag in different
hairstyles in this film.
Tandon: Her role in the first half is a naughty one and
in the second half she turns into a serious mother. She did
well her bit of histrionics.
Prasad: The footage given to him in this film is very
small. But he enthralls the viewers with his limited role.
& direction: Direction and screenplay of the film
is inconsistent. The actual story of the film starts after
four songs are over in this 5-song film. This film is not
what we expect from Singeetam Srinivasa Rao who has given
classics like 'Vichitra Sodarulu', 'Aditya 369'.
Music by Keeravani is pretty ordinary. The background music
and DTS mixing is of average quality. The dialogues of the
film become inaudible, at parts (probably, it's a print fault).
The inconsistent lighting also mars photography, as the film
took two years to make. You can see the lighting and texture
of the scenes change from dim to bright quite often.
Usha Kiron movies first film with a major hero turned out
to be an insipid affair. The freedom and infrastructure given
to Singeetam Srinivasa Rao was not effectively utilized. This
film is also touted as special effects film. Whatever the
effects we see in this film reflected the bad work done by
the Mantra studio of Ramoji Film City.
This film was started in the beginning of the year 1999 and
is based on the Kandahar Flight hijack incident. A story was
woven around it. The first half of the film is boring. The
second half is very predictable. This film is recommended
only for the Nag's fans.
