Ravi (Uday Kiran) is an unemployed graduate with lots of attitude
and brimming confidence. Getting a job is pretty easy for
him and what's easier for him is to quit it with in a day
for the kind of hypocrisies exists in the system. His family
consists of a loving mother, a daunting father and an obsessed
sister-in-law Madhavi (Pratyusha).
meets Viswanatham (Satyanarayana), who is a successful hotelier
in the city. Viswanatham is impressed by the spirit and sincerity
of Ravi. He strikes a deal with Ravi to accompany him and
be the care taker of him during his trip to Switzerland where
he receives the 'best industrialist of the year' award. Viswanath
offers some money as remuneration and will also offer him
the job in his company if Ravi is satisfactory.
(Gajala) is a motherless child and the daughter of a multimillionaire,
who has everything in her fingertips except for the love and
time of her own father, who is too busy minting money round
the clock. Anjali completes her graduation and decides to
go to Switzerland for holidays.
and Anjala stays in the same hotel in Switzerland. They find
liking to each other though they meet very occasionally at
a distance. One evening, they accidentally meet in a cable
car. While on travel, the cable car gets stuck for hours due
to technical problems. Ravi and Anjala are all alone in that
cab. They get tempted by the teen charms of each other and
that incident, they lose touch with each other. Viswanatham
dies of heart attack when he returns India. The entire second
half is dealt with how Ravi and Anjali goes on searching mission
and only to find each other in the climax.
Kiran: Uday Kiran is definitely an improved artist with
this film. His character offers him some mass image as well
with a couple of well-executed fights and ferocious dialogues.
His dances are also pretty impressive. He trimmed his hair
in this film and tried to be different compared to all his
She got a good performance oriented role in Kalusukovalani.
And she did justice to it.
She did a homely character that ends up doing sacrifice. And
she is good in that role.
Satyanarayana got a lengthy role in this film after a long
gap. It's very refreshing to see him back in the business.
Story - Screenplay - Direction: Story of the film is pretty
good. But there is lack of clarity in the script. The director
Raghuraj maintained grip in a few scenes. But lots of scenes
have gaping holes left unplugged. The basic story is a love
story. But the second facet of the film 'inspiration-for-youth-to-exile'
is not carried in the same vein throughout the film. The director
has got good creative sense, but failed to make the audience
glue to the screen.
Music: Music of the film by Devi Sri Prasad is pretty
impressive. The choreography by Shankar and Cool Jayant is
an added asset. Background music is also good. Deva composed
a song 'Shakeela' for this film. The highlight song of the
film is 'Udayinchina'.
Cinematography by Sameer Reddy is asset to the film. Picturization
of songs is more impressive.
Dialogues by Vamsi and Surya Narayana are good. But most of
the times, the characters of Viswanath and Ravi go into 'lecturing'
and 'over-sentiment' mode, which got slightly negative response
This film has a good storyline and not-so-good script. First
half of the film is relatively better compared to second half.
The plus points of the film are music, Uday Kiran and Gajala.
The minus points are slow-paced narration and imperfect script.
Sunil character in this film is wasted. Over all, Kalusukovalani
is an average fare.
