Viswam (Srikanth) and Murugan (Prabhudeva) are the quarreling neighbors who come to Hyderabad in search of a job. They join Buchayya's (Tanikella Bharani) company as management trainees. Buchayya has a beautiful daughter Sashi Rekha (Namitha). These two guys fall in love with Sasi Rekha. Buchayya promises Viswam and Murugan separately that he would marry his daughter off to them. Buchayya promised them so that he could use them as pawns in his business development. Later on Buchayya gets Bala Raju (Sunil) as the bridegroom for Sasirekha. Viswam and Murugan resent this move. Sasirekha gives an offer to Viswam and Murugan that she is willing to marry both of them if its ok to them. And after 24 hours, Viswam and Murugan give their affirmative nod. The rest of the film is all about how Buchayya tries to stop their marriage. The climax deals with the reason why heroine wanted to wed two guys at a time.

Artists Performance
This kind of role is a cakewalk for Srikanth. Prabhudeva suited the role of Tamil lad to the T. He gained some weight and looks glamorous. Namitha did another glamorous role. Though the entire story revolves around her, she did not have interesting role to play. Tanikella Bharani did a typical comedy villain's role. Sunil's comedy as 'balaraju' is partly good. Brahmanandam is OK. Kovai Sarala got an important role. MS Narayana's comedy is good as usual.

Technical Departments:

Story: The story about a girl who is willing to marry two guys at a time. But the real twist is unveiled during the climax of the film. This kind of storyline needs typical 'Priyadarshan' kind of characterization and screenplay to click.

Screenplay - direction: G Nageswara Reddy who made a name for himself with success of teen flicks '6 Teens' and 'Girl Friend' attempted this film with two middle aged heroes Srikanth and Prabhudeva. This kind of storyline needs slick characterization and on-the-fly screenplay. The director failed to provide a gripping screenplay. The direction of the film is good in parts. So is the comedy. (Actually this film is captioned as '100% navvulu' in the poster designs). The director tried to narrate the entire story with the help of situational comedy. There is no logic in the way the characters behave. However illogical the characterization is, a director can always make the audience feel at home with a quick screenplay. But Nageswara Rao seems to have done less homework on this part.

Music: The tunes of this film gives you a feeling like you have heard them before. The re-recording of the film is mediocre. Its time for Chakri to learn some basics about scoring background music for comedy scenes. The kind of sounds he give for comedy bits in his films irritate us. The last song in which Namitha donned the white dress is entertaining.

Dialogues: The plus point in this film are the dialogues given by Marudhuri Raja. Those dialogues did not assist elevating the film because of slack narration. However there are some scenes in the film that crossed the borders of sensibility like -

Scene No1: Villain sends goons to eliminate heroes. And guess what! Heroes (who are wearing nothing except towels) takes their towels off. The frightened goons run away. Here is the conversation that followed

Villain: Sigguleduraa meeku? Valla daggara emi choosi paari poyi vachaaru?
Goons: (no answer)
Villain: Cheppandiraa
Goons: Abbailu pidi baakulla vunnarandi. Mee kooturu sukhapadutundi iddarini chesukuni.

Scene No2:
Villain: Nuvvu iddarini pelli chesukuni ela kaapuram chestavamma?
Heroine: Moodu rojulu okaritho. Moodu rojulu inkokaritho
Sunil: (while jumping towards heroine) ante Sunday free anna maata!

The movie starts off well. The first half of the film is ok. But the second half is boring. The strengths of the film are dialogues and comedy. The weak points are screenplay and narration. Thankfully, it's a 2 hour film. We have to wait and see if this film finds a liking in B and C centers or not.
