love with Anjali? Watch this film to know it yourself!
JD Chakravarthy did a typical Telangana Tapori role.
His Tapori language like 'Diethadi' etc is cool. He
acted as a street-smart brat for the first 75% of the
film and turns spiritual later. His histrionics towards
the latter part of second half are excellent. He tonsured
his head for this film.
Keerthi Chawla acted with almost-no-makeup. She put
on a little weight compared to Aadi film. She is average
as the prey to the hero in this film. Devan is OK as
father of heroine. Uttej, Siva Reddy and Venu Madhav
provided some entertainment in the form of comedy.
Story is little different from the regular commercial
films that are releasing these days. It is about a ruffian
falling to love with a girl who he wanted to cheat for
money. It has certain spiritual angle to it as well.
- direction: Screenplay and direction is good in
patches. There are certain scenes in the film for which
the lead scenes are very good and the main scene made
less impact compared to lead scenes. The best example
is the introduction scene of heroine. The lead scenes
are pretty good and when the heroine is shown, it an
anticlimax. However, the director succeeded in creating
the much needed feel for the film in the second half.
Music by Sri is good. 'Ye Bandham Kalipindo' is very
good. This melody song comes 3-4 times in this film.
Background music is also impressive.
departments: Dialogues in this film are OK. Photography
by Suresh is good. Editing is ok. Action sequences by
Horseman Babu are impressive. Production values of the
film are decent.
First half of the film has nothing to offer. The second
half has got good feel towards the climax. The scenes
in which Chakri acts as devotee at Kaasi and the scene
in which he visits a prostitute in Kolkota are heart
touching. Over all, the film falls little short of the
threshold value and may not click at box office. But,
you may watch it at your leisure.
