(Seema) is a gynecologist who marries a fashion designer
Karthik (Siva Balaji). Karthik dies in an accident.
She joins the clinic run by Vamsi (Jayant). Vamsi proposes
to marry her. Madhuri is reluctant but she is pursued
by her father-in-law (Ranganath) to marry Vamsi. After
their marriage, Vamsi introduces his patient called
Balaji who is suffering from amnesia. Balaji looks exactly
like Karthik and Madhuri doubts that Balaji could be
Karthik. The rest of the story is all about the emotional
struggle Madhuri undergoes!
Seema is sufficient for
the role of a conventional Telugu girl. The entire film
runs on her. Siva Balaji is
competent though his dialogue delivery seems to be very
fast in the first half. He did well in pathos scenes
towards climax. Debutant Jayant
is average. Siva Parvathy, Ranganath,
Sivaji Raja and Chinna
are adequate. Dharmavarapu Subramanyam
The basic story line reminds us of Shahrukh Khan's film
Deewana (1992). There is one medical issue in
the film which would have been solved easily as two
of the three main protagonists are doctors. Instead
of waiting for Siva Balaji to regain his memory to identify
his father Ranganath and wife Seema, the doctor should
have done a DNA test on father and son.
departments: The narration of the film resembles
us of typical TV serial. Direction of the film is old-fashioned.
Screenplay is inane. Dialogues written by the direction
are unnecessarily lengthy. Director Jyothindranath Vemuri
fails in getting things right. Music by Ghantadi Krishna
is average. Cinematography by Mohanchand is adequate.
Kunkuma deals with the emotional struggle of a wife
when her 1st husband who believed to be dead comes back
alive after she marries another man. The direction,
screenplay and narration of the film are old-fashion
and are not up to the mark, which made the film an uninteresting
one. On a whole, Kunkuma is a boring and sluggish flick.
