Ganesh (Tarun) is a carefree college youth whose life revolves around friends and doing good deeds for them and upsetting his father (Bharani). One day he fumbles upon a Red diary in his father's auction shop. It is a dairy left behind unknowingly by Sandhya (Sneha).

The entire first half is narrated through the diary in this film. Sandhya is staying in the house opposite to that of Aishwarya (Jhansi), who is the sister of Ganesh. She falls in love with Ganesh after listening to his melodious guitar play. But Ganesh is unaware of her love and he never uses to interact with her. She is also a shy girl, who never let Ganesh know about her feelings. Sirisha (Preethi) is the younger sister of Sandhya, who is studying in a hostel. When she comes home for holidays, she gets jealous of Sandhya for loving Ganesh and she wanted to grab him from her. Sirishna assures Sandhya that she will liaison the love of Sandhya between Ganesh and Sandhya and plays a double game by playing tricks on Ganesh to attract him. Meantime, the father of Sandhya and Sirisha gets transferred to Vizag. Sandhya asks Sirisha to tell Sandhya's love to Ganesh. Sirishna proposes to Ganesh and gets rejected. Sandhya, who witnessed the entired episode secretly, feels cheated by the betrayal of her own sister. At the same time, Sandhya stays away from proposing to Ganesh for the fear of rejection. The family of Sandhya moves to Vizag. In the transfer process her diary gets misplaced.

After knowing that Sandhya is her secret admirer, Ganesh recognizes the purity in her love and wants to meet her and propose his love to her. He jets off to Vizag along with his friend Chacha (Venu Madhav). There he finds a mutual friend Raghu (Sivaji) and stays in his house. Raghu is a rich bachelor, who is staying with their parents and is very good at heart. As Ganesh explores his secret mission of finding Sandhya, Raghu gets engaged to the unwilling Sandhya. Later on Raghu comes to know that Ganesh is there to search his silent admirer.

Ganesh know that Raghu is marrying Sandhya. Being a good friend, he does not want to betray him. Sandhya has agreed to marriage since she does not want to make the things worse for her father and sister. But she still loves Ganesh. Sirisha wants to amend the mistake she has done. She searches for Ganesh to unite them. Things are still unsure and hazy as Sandhya and Ganesh are going to tie the knot in a few minutes. You have to watch this slow paced different love story if you want to know the climax.



Tarun: Tarun did this tailor made role with an ease of perfectionist. In this film too his character gets lot of sympathy just like his character in Nuvve Kavali.

Sneha: The newcomer is in her elements in this film. This natural beauty is the perfect fit for the role. She has very few dialogues in this film and carried the most of her action through expressions.

Preethi: She is a misfit in this film. A girl with josh is needed for this character and Preethi made a mess out of it.

Technical Departments:

Story, Screenplay & direction: Bala Sekharan, the man who directed the Tamil version of Pawan Kalyan's Suswagatham, did try to repeat the success by weaving another one sided love story. The flash back in the first-half is narrated though the series of leaflets from the memoirs of the Hero. He could have made the script a crisp one. Because of the nature of story, this film went on a slow pace. He could have made the film little shorter. Nonetheless, he made sure that this film too have all the clean ingredients the youth is looking for.

Dialogues: Ramana Chintalapalli, who was in hot seat during the days of 'Toli Prema' penned dialogues for this film. There is one particular eye-opening dialogue in this film, which goes on like this - "Manishiki Manishiki rayabaaraalu vundochukaani - Manaduki Manasuki raayabaaraalu undakoodadu'. There is another full-length dialogue for Venu Madhav that evokes lot of laugh.

Music: Songs of this film work like the typical slow poisoning by SA Raj Kumar. 'Manasuna Vunnadi' song is the highlight of the film, which represents the state of heart of the secretly admiring heroine. There is one particular catchy guitar bit in this film that comes repeatedly, which comes in the starting of the song 'Manasuna Vunnadi'.

Production: RB Chowdary, like any other seasoned successful producer, knows the pulse of the viewers and according the select the scripts and directors.

Analysis: This film started with a low note as an average film. Courtesy - the movie-eater Narasimha Naidu. With the help aggressive publicity, a good film can never fail. Over the next few weeks, it made an unexpected turnaround to become a good hit, as the collection sour up week after week. If you are patient enough to watch a little slow paced film, this movie is a best bet.
