him. Would Siva break his wedlock to go to the girl
whom he really loves?
Sivaji has become the emerging comedy star these days.
Instead of choosing the roles that have comedy shades,
he preferred a serious character that dabbles with love
in the first half and goes through family life in the
second half. He did well. But we expect some comedy
Jasmine : Meera Jasmine looks average off the screen.
But she has a quite charming screen presence that oozes
the sensuality of Indian women. She performed well in
the duel role and had shown variation in appearance
Ali, Chitram Seenu and Anil played the roles of Sivaji's
buddies. Ali had major portion in the film in creating
comedy. Brahmanandam did another comedy role. Rajan
P Dev did a dignified character.
This film is a remake of Tamil hit film 'Parthipan Kanavu'.
The basic storyline is very interesting. It questions
the basis of love - looks, levels of understanding,
taste, compatibility and infatuation!
- direction: Bala Sekharan who directed films like
Priyamaina Neeku (hit) and Snehamante Idera (flop) returns
to Telugu screen after a gap of 3 years. The direction
of the film is average. The storyline of the film needs
a good support in the form of screenplay to be narrated
efficiently. But the screenplay of the film lacks pace
and the much needed firmness.
Music is definitely a plus point of the film. Music
is melodious and soothing. The background music is also
good. But one cannot stop complaining about 'inspiration'
weakness of Srilekha, as she prefers copying popular
tunes from other languages than scoring something on
departments: Dialogues by V Vamsi are OK. The dialogues
about relationships towards climax are worth commending.
Camerawork is good. Production values are decent. Songs
picturisation is neat.
First half of the film is average. The pace goes down
in the second half. But the climax and lead scenes to
climax are good. The emotional graph of the film is
flat till the scene where wife of hero goes to her parent's
house. The narration of the film is flat. The only twist
in the film is the interval point where hero realizes
that there are two look alike girls. This movie would
have been a disappointment if the climax were not good.
This film is a clean film sans vulgarity and violence.
People expect lots of comedy from Sivaji (especially
after Missamma) as he has got good comedy timing. And
his character does not have any strings of comedy attached
to it, which is unfair.
