Mahesh (Naresh) is son of a fish-seller. Pooja (Shireen) is
the daughter of a businessman. Both of them are thick friends
since childhood as they studied in the same convent/school/college.
Mahesh has lusty feelings towards Pooja during his adolescent.
But Pooja has love feelings towards him. They also have a
group of 4 more friends with whom they move closely. Unfortunately,
the parents of these guys are very skeptical about their kids
and always scold them. Vexed by the hostile attitude of parents,
these kids leave from their homes and travel to a new place.
rest of the story is all about what they did to survive and
how they make their parents realize the importance of raising
kids in proper way.
Allari Naresh did a decent job. But his range of expressions
is very limited and he has to do few good films to avoid becoming
repetitive. Heroine Shireen, who is also acted in the Tamil
original film, did a good job. Prakash Raj did a short, but
powerful role in Juniors. He has 10 minutes dialogue during
the climax of the film, which became the saving grace for
this film. Tanikella Bharani is at his best. Vizag Prasad
has got a variety role and he generated some entertainment
with his acting as a suspicious father of the heroine. Sudhakar
has got a lengthy role in this film after a long gap.
Story - screenplay - direction: The basic storyline of
the film is about how kids vexed with negative attitude of
parents go away from home. Though this film is remade from
a Tamil hit film, you get a feeling like watching a Malayalam
dubbed film. Instead of concentrating on the narration of
the story, the director went for inserting hot/pervert sexual
scenes to excite the teens. The debutant director Pulla Rao
is not impressive in his direction or screenplay.
technical departments: Songs by Chakri are average and
background score is bad. Camera work is average. Dialogues
by Marudhuri Raja and editing work by Gowtam Raju are ok.
First half of the film is average as it established the characters.
Second half is dragged and boring. Looks like the director
has done scene-scene copy from the original, as you do not
see any conviction in narration and you do not find soul in
the film. Only plus point of the film is a 10-minute dialogue
by Prakash Raj where he explains how parents should raise
their kids. Ladies cannot watch this film in theaters because
of few crude scenes that embarrass them.
