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.
rest of the story is all about why Siva Nageswari shoots
Bhavani Prasad and the consequences that follow!
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
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
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
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 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 by Mani Sharma is good in songs. But the background
music is so so. 'Bandarlo Busstand', 'Palaka Balapam',
'Brundavanamulo' and 'Sarasala Sundarayya' songs are
Photography by VSR Swamy is OK.
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.
