There are four inseparable friends living in a room at Hyderabad.
Balu's (Sivaji) aim is to go to USA on H1 visa and earn dollars.
Chanti's (Ali) goal is to seduce a wealthy girl into marriage
and settle as the son-in-law of a millionaire. Vasu (Sri Harsha)
disguises as the son of a millionaire though he is a son of
a poor man. Dattu's (Naveen) objective is to get a job with
huge pay packet. All these four guys are capable and worthy,
but their attitude lands them up nowhere. These four guys
also have a separate love track running with a girl each.
(Rajeev Kanakala) joins them as their roommate. He notices
their attitude problem and gives a solution to them without
hurting their egos. Towards the film's end, Siddu meets with
an accident. The rest of the story is all about how these
four friends try a novel method to raise 4 lakhs, which would
save Siddu from death.
This film has five heroes and three heroines. All these artists
did their bit with ease. Sivaji should consider reducing his
weight and toning his tummy. Brahmanandam acted as Boxer Baba
and provided some neat comedy. MS Narayana, once again, given
the role of house owner in which the bachelor heroes stay
and entertained audience as the drunkard. Among all the heroes,
Rajeev Kanakala stands out with his sensible action.
The story of the film is good. Bandi Ramesh, the director,
did the justice in portraying friendship in a very believable
way. But the director failed to maintain the grip on the film
throughout. Dialogues by Chintapally Ramana are not up to
the mark. Music by Sashi Preetham is pretty average.
First half of the film is average. Second half drags a little
bit. But the climax is heart touching. This film fail to get
a going at box office as it does not have any mass or class
