(Vishal) falls in love with Mythili (Reema Sen) and
marries her. Mythili has a neighbor called Viswa (Bharat)
who is few years younger to Mythili. She pampers him
a lot since childhood as he is a motherless kid. But
Viswa starts to develop feelings towards her. He becomes
over-protective of her as well. When Raghu and Mythili
shift to Goa for job purpose, Viswa also shifts to Goa
on the pretext of graduation. Viswa joins the neighboring
house of Mythili. He starts helping her out in errands
while her husband is away. When Raghu is away from town,
Viswa dupes Mythili and takes her away to unidentified
destination. The rest of the film is all about how Raghu
saves and brings back his wife from the clutches Viswa.
Main Leads: Debutant hero Vishal
(son of GK Reddy who produced films like SP Parusuram
& M Dharmaraju MA) does well in the role of a leading
character. Though a first timer, he is at ease with
camera and possesses natural histrionics ability. Reema
Sen is sexier in sarees as housewife than as
a glamorous heroine in western dresses. There is good
amount of scope for performance and she enlivened it
Bharat (Boys & Yuvasena
fame) is good as obsessive lover of a girl who is much
elder to him. At the same time, he also makes sure that
there is a bit of innocence associated with his character.
Vivek is entertaining as
the friend of Vishal. Venu Madhav's dubbing to Vivek
establishes in getting the comedy punches right. Girish
Karnad is adequate. Mumtaj
& Bhanu Priya did guest roles.
This story has strong resemblance to the main theme
of mythological epic Ramayana. Vishal, Reema Sen and
Bharat enact the roles of Ram, Seeta and Ravana respectively.
Our writers say that Ramayana and Mahabharata form the
origins of majority of film stories in India. This film
is another example.
- direction: Screenplay by Gandhi Krishna is superior
with fast-paced narration. Direction of the film is
also good. The first half of the film concentrates on
romantic escapades between the lead pair and the second
half has a bit of suspense factor about how hero traces
departments: Music by Harris Jayaraj is an asset.
The tunes as well as background score are good. KV Anand's
cinematography is another plus point. Picturization
of the songs is good. Wonder why the blue lagoons and
the beaches of Andaman Islands are less explored in
foreign-locations-crazy Telugu films. The Andaman Islands
are well exploited in the second song of this film.
The set work is also good. Dialogues by Vennelakanti
Analysis: The first half of the
film is engaging. The second half goes on slow mode.
The concept of a guy snatching away heroine resembles
us of films like Guna and Nenu. These kinds of storylines
(second half) do not go well with regular Telugu film
crowds. The plus points of the film are Reema Sen, music
and selection of a storyline that involves post-marital
life of lead pair. This film being a dubbed one is a
disadvantage. The feel of the original Tamil version
could not be translated in Telugu effectively. But,
you may watch this film at your leisure.
