is dragging a treasure box in a hilly area only to get caught
by a villain gang that is armed with a captor, a jeep, a couple
of horses and of course guns. As that gal is screaming for
help, our hero makes his entrance in a grand scale appearing
in Zorro attire. After a few fights and stunts like riding
standing( a la ajay devagan) on a couple of bikes that are
self operated, you start thinking why so much hungamma is
happening about Hero introduction. Suddenly the gal's box
burst and the 'Pepsi' bottles pop out. Hero sips Pepsi chivalrously!
Yehi hai right choice baby!! Yup! Its an ad shooting for 'Pepsi'.
Raj Kumar (Mahesh) is doing modeling along with his graduation
at Bombay. After seeing the ad shooting Bombay ad producers
queues up for him. And then Raj Kumar chooses to sing 'Bollywood
BalaRajuni'. After the intro song Raj Kumar go to his uncle's
Hotel in Khandala for the vacation along with his friends.
Raj Kumar and his uncle start talking with swords. During
their conversation, we realize that Raj Kumar and his uncle,
Dhanunjay (Prakash Raj) are like close buddies. Raj Kumar
has no parents and Dhanunjay has no other relatives.
Then they show a bus coming to that hotel with a banner of
'Kothi Women College, Hyderabad' on it. You guessed it right!
Rani (Priety Zinta) is the last one to get down from the bus,
as we eagerly wait for the introduction of the heroine. Raj
Kumar falls in love with Rani at first sight. Raj Kumar starts
unabashedly teasing Rani and causes hatred in her. At the
same time, Raj Kumar appears in a cowboy dress on a hill area
with a horse, whip and sword and plays his guitar and do some
feats to attract Rani. Rani drops her pallu which will fly
and fall in the hands of Raj Kumar. Rani starts loving that
cowboy. Again you are right. Rani does not know that the cowboy
is Raj Kumar himself. As we start wondering how long Rajkumar
does his double play with Rani, a team of cops consisting
of Brahmanandam, MS Narayana and Asrani come to Khandala to
catch a guy who did 10 rapes. Enter the cops .. the age old
comedy of constable teasing SI begins ( a la 420, JVAS, Hello
Brother ... ).
The rapist, whom these cops are searching, kidnaps Rani right
under the nose of Brahmanandam. Begins the chase. Rapist and
Rani in a maruti van, Cops on a typical Andhra police jeep
and Rajkumar on a bike. Some how rapist fools Cops, but not
Rajkumar. As the rapist got the steering out of his hand.
Van starts running like a wild horse dumping rapist and Rani
out of it and then jumping into a deep valley of Khandala.
*Cut* Rani is hanging to the cliff and rapist holding her
wrist ( a la pawan kalyan and kirthi in toli prema). Rani
relents as rapist asks her to choose between 'mancham ekkadam'
and 'paade ekkadam' ( dialogues by Paruchuri). Meantime our
Raj Kumar stops his bike and changes his attire to cowboy
though his Rani is fighting out with rapist and doing cliff
hanging. When Rani is on the verge of falling from the cliff,
our cowboy enters there scene to rescue her and he also takes
precaution not to show his face to her. Rani is thrilled to
see his cowboy flame thrashing the rapist in different styles.
After the fight is over, Raj Kumar shows mercy on Rani by
closing the curtains down by revealing his identity. Raja
and Rani confirm their love duly followed by a song. During
that evening while doing sword talking with Dhanunjay, Raja
reveals his love for Rani. Suddenly Dhanunjay gets disappointed
and tells Raja not to love any gal, as he has somebody in
his mind. Dhanunjay puts some sentimental dialogues to make
Raj Kumar reject Rani. A tear some Rani verbally thrashes
Dhanunjay before boarding her bus back to 'Kothi College'.
Raj Kumar and Dhanunjay boards train to AP. Prakash Raj starts
telling the flashback. There is a feudal system in Rangapuram.
Thyagamurthy (Krishna) is a landlord of 60 acres. So is the
Sarvarayudu (Jaya Prakash). Being a kind hearted person Thyagamurthy
donates all his land to the farmers who are working for him.
Dhanunjay's sister is married to Thyagamurthy. Dhanunjay is
married to the Sumalatha, sister of Sarvarayudu. Thyagamurty
is making all farmers enlightened about the exploitation by
Sarvarayudu. As Sarvarayudu does not like his farmers to know
about his exploitation kills Thyagamurthy and his wife. Dhanunjay
picks the kid (Raj Kumar) of Thyagamurthy and takes him back
to his house (residence of Sarvarayudu). Sarvarayudu rejects
to accommodate son of Thyagamurthy in his house. An infuriated
Dhanunjay decides to leave that house and stay on his own.
Sumalatha refuses to join his hubby and she prefers to stay
with her brothers ( Sarvarayudu and Bro.). Being an insulted
man, Dhanunjay challenges that he will get Raj Kumar married
to his daughter (who is with Sumalatha now), leaves for Khandala
along with Raj Kumar to become a grand hotelier.
By the time flash back is over Raj Kumar and Dhanunjay are
full of tears. Raj Kumar promises Dhanunjay that he will marry
his sis-in-law and duly drops the pallu presented by Rani
through the window of train (It will fly and get stuck to
a red signal light, that's different matter). Enter Rangapuram.
Raj Kumar and Dhanunjay wants to see Sumalatha. They know
that Sarvarayudu family is visiting temple that evening. Dhanunjay
and Raj Kumar visit temple to see Sumalatha and her daughter.
This time too you shot the bull's eye. The daughter of Sumalatha
is none but Rani. These guys make sure that they are not seen
by those women.
Kids in Sarvarayudu family are watching 'Shaktiman' in the
TV. Sumalatha forces to put the TV off. And one of the kid
start telling that 'Shaktiman' will come now. Raj Kumar appears
in Zorro dress. He fools around with all the family members
by running around with a sword and then slips in Rani's bed
room. After much dilly dallying they reach basement. Raj Kumar
and Rani starts fighting with swords and Raj starts kissing
her in between the fights and finally manages to disrobe her
with a few quick movements by his sword (Remember the Mask
of Zorro). Then he reveals his identity to brighten the redden
face of Rani. Raj Kumar, Rani and Dhanunjay meet at a place.
Rani reveals that she got engaged to SriHari and her marriage
is in offing.
Srihari wins 'KarraSaamu' contest. After a few minutes Raj
Kumar enters the scene to fool around with SriHari ( a la
bavagaru bagunnara). Raj Kumar and Dhanunjay shows a photograph
of Rani with Raj (Raj's face is blackened) and convinces Raj
Kumar that Rani character might not be good. Then SriHari
agrees to make Raj Kumar enter as a London friend of him at
Rani's house ( a la DDLJ).
Now the stage is set for the climax. How does Raj Kumar gets
Rani from the clutches of Sarvarayudu? How does Sumalatha
realizes the importance of her hubby Dhanunjay? Will Survarayudu
tolerate the cheating of Raj Kumar? Well, guys, you gotta
watch it on the silver screen!!
