(Srikanth) is India's No.1 architect, who values everything
in the form of money and gazes the world through the
telescope of currency. He happens to meet a girl Sridevi
(Charmi) who helps him in certain issues. He try to
give her money as token of appreciation for the help
she rendered. She hates his materialistic attitude.
Slowly, Vivek falls in love with Sridevi and proposes
to her. She rejects bluntly.
rest of the story is all about how he changes his attitude
and wins the love of Sridevi.
Srikanth is impressive
as the leading man. Charmi
is cute and homely in the role of Sridevi. Sunil
stole the show with his comedy. Sivaji
Raja appeared on big screen for the first time
after his accident. He tried his best. Anvita
looks good for the second fiddle role. LB
Sriram generated humor as the riddle master.
Senior artists like Kaikala Satyanarayana,
Jayanti and Sarat Babu
acted in this film. Brahmanandam
and MS Narayana generated
neat comedy. Venu Madhav's
finishing episode is hilarious.
- Screenplay - direction: Story of the film is pretty
routine one. Debutant director Surya Teja handled the
screenplay of the film like an experienced director.
However there are certain lags in the second half of
the film. Surya Teja seems to be a promising director.
He handled the most of the scenes in the film sensibly.
But at the same time, his direction is too traditional.
The main asset of the film are humorous dialogues written
by Chintapally Ramana. The dialogues written to Sunil
and riddles written to LB Sriram are pretty good. There
are certain though provoking dialogues as well.
It's a fair comeback for Sri after a hiatus of almost
4 years. The songs are neat. Background music and rerecording
is also good. He followed SA Raj Kumar style of background
chorus for sentimental scenes.
departments: Cinematography by Jayaram is ok. Choreography
by Pradeep Anthony is good. It's a decent effort by
the new filmmakers MS Kumar and Geeta.
First half of the film is entertaining. Second half
is OK with lots of sentiment scenes. The main strength
of the film is the comedy dialogues written by Chintapally
Ramana. Its not a bad film and you may watch it once
for the comedy. 'Neeke Manasichanu' has chances of becoming
a minimum guarantee film for the producers, if they
promote the film aggressively.
