Prakash: The USP of this film is Surya Prakash with the
tag of 'Son of K Raghavendra Rao'. He looked quite awkward
in the posters of the film, which gave kind of negative impression.
But, when you watch him on the big screen, he looks pretty
decent though he looks more matured than his age with thick
eyebrows and broad forehead. Acting wise, he is good. His
dialogue delivery needs some modulation and variation. It's
too monotonous. But, he suited the character to the tee and
did justice to the role given to him by portraying fine expressions.
She is probably the most lissome heroine after Sonali Bendre
in Telugu films. She did well. She is extremely good at dancing.
She can move her body in any direction in a split of moment
with the ease of a classical dancer. She also puts fine expressions
on her face according to mood of the song while dancing.
actors: Sunil is definitely the scene-stealer of the film
with his comedy. Rajiv Kanakala did the role of bakra
who is cheated by Sunil for petty money and gifts. This comedy
is nicely intervened with the main storyline. Prakash Raj
did his typical over-protective father kind of role in this
Story: Dale Carnegie wrote in a book titled 'How to win
friends and influence people' that 'if you want to become
just act as if you are already in that position
then you can achieve anything'. In this film too when
the heroine starts acting as a lover, she really falls in
love. The basic storyline of the film is very good.
- Direction: Screenplay and treatment is fresh in the
first half. But the director lost grip of the proceedings
in the second half. John has got good creativity and freshness
in the direction and taking of shots. But the authority over
narrating the story interestingly is missing.
Dialogues by Viswanath are apt for the scenes. He has good
grip on comedy dialogues as well.
Another best asset of the film is excellent tunes. Though
three of the songs have inspired music, Vidya Sagar made sure
that each song is a gem. And they are knitted well into the
film as situational songs. Background score is also very impressive.
This film might mark the return of Telugu music director Vidya
Sagar back into Tollywood.
The main asset of the film is excellent photography by Chota
K Naidu. Each and every frame of the film is picturesquely
canned. Excellent locations added the necessary glitter to
the silver screen.
First half of the film is promising. But the second half takes
a severe beating with dragged scenes and snail-paced narration.
This film is an average to below-average fare for class audiences.
But masses might not like it. This film launches Surya Prakash
as a promising hero. The director succeeded in giving Surya
Prakash a few scenes that can give scope for a hero to do
different kinds of histrionics. Usha Kiran movies has the
most promising advertising media it its hand in the form of
'E TV'. We have to wait and see if that publicity changes
the fortunes of this otherwise ordinary film.
