(Nitin) is the son of a municipality truck driver Bonala
Bikshapati (Tanikella Bhaarani). Mallika (Raima Sen)
is the daughter of a millionaire Somalinga Raju (Rehman).
Seenu and Mallika are classmates and fall in love. Irritated
by this, Somalinga Raju puts Seenu in jail on false
charges. The second half is all about how Seenu bids
for a great escape and marries his ladylove.
Nitin: Nitin is adorable in the first half of
the film with chirpy attitude and vivacious outlook.
His dialogue delivery improved considerably in this
film. His Telangana college accent is very natural.
His dances for the first two college songs are very
Raima Sen is OK as leading
lady. Suman Shetty had
major role in first half of the film and did pretty
well. Tanikella Bharani
is good as father of hero. Teja got habituated in signing
retired heroines as mothers of heroes/heroines (Talluri
Rameswari - Nijam, Ayesha Julka - Jai and Aiswarya -
Dhairyam). Aiswarya (daughter
of Lakshmi) acted as mother of heroine in this film.
Retired heroes Rehman and
Arun Pandyan did important
roles in this film. Chalapati
Rao is good as grandfather. Rallapally
is hilarious as fake baba. Ali's
toilet humor is in bad taste.
Storyline of rich girl falling in love with poor boy
is just the reverse case of 'Nuvvu Nenu'. The point
of heroine's father putting hero in jail came in recently
released 'Dhana 51'. Hence the storyline of the film
appears pretty clichéd.
- direction: Screenplay of the film in first half
is good and its gone haywire in second half. Teja succeeded
in established the love between the lead pair in the
first half, but the direction in second half appears
pretty confused. One fails do understand why Teja always
show the rich parents in bad light in all his love stories.
Dialogues are partly good in this film. There is too
much of sermonizing about the trait 'Dhairyam'. There
are two hilarious comedy dialogues for Suman Setty in
the first half. Here is another comedy dialogue for
Brahmanandam - 'Aalu ledu. Choolu ledu. Apollo Hospital
bill entha ani adigaadanta!'
departments: A couple of melodies (emito & neetho
cheppana songs) scored by Anoop are very good. Picturization
of songs in first half is good. Cinematography by Sameer
Reddy is good. Lyrics by Kula Sekhar are good. Fights
by Horseman Babu are average. Production values of 'Asian
Entertainments' banner are adequate.
Analysis: First half of the film
is OK. Second half is a let down. The point of heroine's
father putting hero in jail and hero trying to escape
does not go well with audiences. Teja's forte is doing
love stories. The first half of the film is love story.
But the second half has 10% love quotient and 90% action
backdrop. This film is a disappointment from Teja. We
have to wait and see how it fares at Box Office.
