(Tarakaratna) falls in love with Priya (Chaya Singh)
at the first sight. DK (Asish Vidyardhi) is a professional
killer and an atheist. DK harasses his wife Sandhya
on religious grounds. Sandhya is a buddy of Priya. Priya
warns DK not to harass Sandhya. DK kills Sandhya and
Siva is a witness to it. The goons from DK's camp keep
chasing Siva. Meanwhile, Priya realizes that she is
also in love with Siva. The rest of the film is about
how all ends well.
Leads: Taraka Ratna is better is in this compared
to his earlier films. He is completely at ease. His
long legs helped him make the fights in this film effective.
Chaya Singh has got amazing ability of emoting and expressing
herself. She is better looking in film compared to the
movie stills. Dubbing by Savitha Reddy matched this
heroine to the tee.
Asish Vidyardhi is OK, but becoming redundant as comic
villain. Lahari is fair as the wife of Asish. Three
more heroines - Neha (Dil), Tanu Roy and Keerthi Chawla
- did an item song each. Brahmanandam generated adequate
comedy as an escape from mental-asylum. Venu Madhav
is ineffective as comedy generating dada. Babloo and
Sivaji Raja did the roles of heroes buddies.
Story of the film is totally weird. We do not understand
what is going on the screen. Each and every film has
got something called conflict that appears between two
characters. And this storyline defies every norm of
story telling in a negative way. The following points
vs. Villain: Hero witness villain for the first
time when he murders his wife. Since then, he runs
away from villain and gang in stead of bringing villain
to the book.
vs. Heroine: Hero and Heroine do have very
little interaction though hero is madly in love with
her. The entire film is a 'hide and seek' game between
them and they meet only in climax.
vs Villain: Heroine has a valid proof to arrest
villain. But makes no attempt to do so even after
villain kills her best buddy.
to villain: Hero never confronts villain directly
and villain is finally arrested by comedian Brahmanandam,
who happens to be CID officer.
- dialogues - music - direction: Screenplay of the
film is totally flat. Direction of the film is aimless.
Dialogues of the film are inane. Music is pretty mundane.
Background music is mediocre. Director Pappu should
realize that technique does not mean having weird camera
angles. Technique is all about narrating the story in
a convincing way by using sound and camera as per the
demand of situation.
departments: Camerawork by V Srinivasa Reddy too
flashy to watch. He used unusual lenses most of the
time and placed camera in awkward angles. Editing by
Nagi Reddy is adequate. Production values of the film
are adequate. Stunts in this film are OK. The hospital
fight is really is good.
Analysis: First half of the film
is boring. Second half is little better. The main drawback
of the film is Pappu who provided pathetic story, weak
screenplay, dismal direction, dull dialogues and mediocre
music. There is no justification of keeping title as
'No' for this film. My recommendation for No film is
a big 'No'.
