gets mentally disturbed after realizing that Divya and
Aadi are in love. He starts lusting for Divya. Divya
who is unaware of his inner feelings considers his behavior
as one out of his unadulterated affection. In the process,
Vinod conspire a plot in which himself and Divya escape
to a jungle on the pretext of Vinod helping Divya out
in eloping with Adi. When Divya goes amiss, the point
of suspicion is turned towards Adi. The rest of the
story is all about what Vinod do to Divya.
Naresh: Allari Naresh is made for that character.
He is extremely at home while playing the antics of
a never-socialized youngster. The make-up is pretty
good and he appeared terrific in the first half. His
body language suited the characterization to the tee.
Veda is the girl who made her debut as 'Archana' in
'Tapana'. She rechristened her name for a bit of luck.
She is homely and appears girl-next-door. Her histrionics
Abhishek is apt as the flamboyant youngster who is very
good at heart. He might emerge as the replacement for
feel-good primetime characters in Telugu films.
Pauruchuri Venkateswara Rao is good as Chuch father.
Chalapati Rao has shown his finesse though he acted
in 3-4 scenes. Benarjee acted as sub inspector on prowl.
This film has got very limited characters.
Story of the film is about an orphan who has seen unthinkable
when he was a kid. He hates the world and the people
around him. He then falls in love with a girl and his
- direction: Screenplay and direction of the film
are decent. E Sathi Babu who handled a couple of comedy
flicks so far has handled a serious cinema for the first
time. The basic storyline has a couple of unconvincing
Why Vinod would develop lusty desire towards Divya
the moment she starts dating Aadi? Divya and Adi are
the only two students in the entire college who treated
Vinod with due respect and taught him good manners.
2. Why did not Adi shout when he chases the Vinod

How ever there are a few of heart-touching scenes in
Vinod solving a difficult problem on board when the
professor felt that no student is capable of doing

public speech with the help of Divya.
3. Vinod self-sacrificing himself in the climax though
Divya lends her hand to help him out.
departments: Music by Vidya Sagar is good. He used
different instruments and Tamil singers make the tunes
appear different. The background music is good. Dialogues
by the director E Sathi Babu are good. Camera work by
Ram Prasad is first rate. Picturization of the songs
are also good. Editing by Srikar is neat. Production
values of Sri Rajyalakshmi banner are appreciable.
First half of the film is good. The second half slips
out of the hand as the couple enters jungle. The climax
point is a heart touching one. This film is remake of
Tamil film 'Kadal Kondein' that put the debutant hero
Dhanush into the top bracket with one film. Tamil audiences
have entirely different way of receiving films. A hit
in Tamil does not guarantee the same result in Telugu,
as the sensibilities does not match. Hero playing a
character of negative shades is a strict NO in Telugu
films. Allari Naresh who has an eye for novelty acted
in this film with a great amount of zeal. The producer
should be appreciated for attempting to make a different
film. The success of this film would depend on how youth
embrace this film.
