SSS Bhavani Prasad (Bala Krishna) lives in Karampudi. Sruthi, a girl who is going to get engaged to an NRI (Pruthvi), falls in love with Bhavani Prasad. When their marriage is about to happen, a lady called Siva Nageswari (Sonali Bendre) enter the premises of hall and shoots at Bhavani Prasad.

The rest of the story is all about why Siva Nageswari shoots Bhavani Prasad and the consequences that follow!

Artists Performence

Bala Krishna: Bala Krishna did extremely well in the character of Bhavani Prasad. His facial expressions and dialogue delivery is simply superb in confronting scenes. He tried new steps in a couple of songs, which entertained fans.

Heroines: Arti Agarwal is limited to admiring the manliness and the kindness of the hero. She has 4 songs (one with Sonali combination) in this film. Sonali Bendre played a venomous role. She did well in emotional scenes.

Others: Mukesh Rushi does not have a big role to play. JP is good and he provided some entertainment value. Pruthvi did OK as a USA returned guy. But his accent is irritating. Chalapati Rao did the role of trusted servant of hero. Jatin (Nee Sneham fame) got another role of a handicapped boy. Kaikala Satyanarayana played the role of temple priest.

Technical Departments:

Story: The main drawback of this film is lack of proper story. Posani Krishna Murali has given a confusing storyline with no grip in it.

Screenplay - Direction: Screenplay provided by Posani Krishna Murali is not up to the mark. Direction by B Gopal is good in parts. But he failed to hold the entire film from falling apart.

Dialogues: Dialogues by Paruchuri brothers dominated the film. You can find very good mass dialogues for each and every scene. You can pick lots of best dialogues in this film. But unfortunately, the situations are not substantial enough to support the weight of dialogues.

Music: Music by Mani Sharma is good in songs. But the background music is so so. 'Bandarlo Busstand', 'Palaka Balapam', 'Brundavanamulo' and 'Sarasala Sundarayya' songs are impressive.

Cinematography: Photography by VSR Swamy is OK.

Thrills: This film is touted to have 6 chases. But actually some of the chases are not chases. They are rallies of different vehicles like TATA sumos and boats. Vikram Dharma choreographed all the fight sequences. Raju directed the cockfight.

First half of the film lacks any story element and is slow. The second half has some story, but too many twists spoil the mood of the film. The main drawback of the film is that the director B Gopal never got the audiences in his grip with his narrative. There are some impressive scenes like Balayya going to the villains place and daring them with good fights as well as great dialogues (one in first half and another in second half). Had these scenes been placed in a proper story, then they would have got elevated well. But in this film, the powerful performance of Balayya and mass dialogues by Paruchuri brothers got wasted because they are improperly utilized. In addition to this, the hero character has special powers like moving the train in reverse direction and moving a chair forward. If these scenes were put in a properly narrated film (like in Narasimha Naidu where the hero makes villain's dog stand up and salute to him), they would add more excitement. The comedy by Jaya Prakash Reddy where he imitates Balayya in moving the chair by signaling with his finger is hilarious. The director tried to stuff in too many mass elements and he lost hold on the basic thread of the story. Over all, this film is not satisfactory. But, it has chances to run well in B and C centers because of good mass dialogues and good songs.
