is an unemployed who stays along with likewise friends seating
for jobs. He is an excellent mimicry artist. He gets pager
messages from a girl called Sandhya(Soundarya) for whom he
responds in no time by calling her up.
Vishnu elaborates the flashback to the friends who misunderstand
the pager relationship between him and Sandhya.
Satya and Sandhya are lovers. Satya's mother gets a heart
attack and is admitted in a hospital. Doctor says that she
needs to be operated on heart which would cost around 3 lacks.
Incidentally that hospital belongs to the employer of Sandhya,
Bhavani Prasad. Sandhya pleads Bhavani Prasad to grant her
a loan to save her would-be's mother. Bhavani gives her loan
to save her day.
Bhavani Prasad himself has a strange family problem. He is
the only son of Annapurna. He is abroad bread married another
abroad bread girl there. Annapurna is against the decision
of Bhavani Prasad. But after coming to know that Bhavani Prasad
has a kid Annapurna invites three of them home. But Bhavani
Prasad wife dies in an accident. Not wanting to disappoint
Annapurna, Bhavani Prasad lies that his wife is angry with
When Sandhya pleads Bhavani Prasad for money, Annapurna misinterprets
Sandhya to be her sister-in-law. Then Bhavani Prasad pleads
Sandhya to act as his wife for a period of 4 months as after
4 months Bhavani prasad would be leaving India permanently.
Sandhya relents the idea. But Satya forces her to act as the
wife of Bhavani Prasad as a token of appreciation for the
help Bhavani Prasad did for her mother. As Sandhya starts
staying with Bhavani Prasad, she presents Satya a pager telling
him that she would page him as and when required so that he
can talk to her over the phone.
Vishnu is lying on the road in an unconscious stage as the
scorching heat added to his hunger. Satya spots him and gives
him food and cloths. He takes him to his ailing mother and
introduce him to her. As they are returning from hospital
Satya dies by saving Vishnu from a gruesome accident. While
dying Satya hands over the pager to Vishnu and asks him to
take care of Sandhya by talking to her over over phone by
mimicking Satya's voice.
*End of flashback*
As the time is fast approaching for the 4 year contract period
to get over Vishnu has got his priorities set right. He has
to slowly poison the heart of Sandhya by injecting venom into
her over Satya so that she would develop hatred over Satya.
He wants Sandhya to hate Satya to an extent of not willing
to meet him in her life.
As the tear jerking climax unveils for the viewer, we have
to see whom Sandhya will marry and What the fate of Vishnu
Srinkanth did a real good job by doing a performance oriented
role. Soundarya is, as usual, at her best. Abbas did his cameo
role with zest. Raghuvaran is very compassionate playing his
role with ease. Poonam adds the glamour and a couple of songs
to this film.
Direction: Ramesh Sarangan did a good job for his first
film. He has got the right talent in projecting the human relationships
and love. But he failed in showing the sensibility in comedy
and smooch execution of scenes.
Screenplay: Screenplay in the first half is shabby.
Second half is cool
Production: Planning seems to be missing while doing
the film. First half has no story.
Music: Music by Manisharma is good. But the punch of
'Manisharma' is lacking. 'Too much' and 'Swathi Chinuka' songs
half is very boring. First half can be told in two lines. Second
half is very gripping. Climax is great. This films would have
done wonders at box office, but for the shabby execution of
first half. If you are going to watch this film, my recommendation
for you is to know the two line story of first half and watch
the second half on the big screen. You will enjoy it to the
