Ramana (Rajendra Babu) is an unemployed graduate, who is against doing 9-5 jobs. He wants to do something on his own to become an entrepreneur. Ramana is son of Venkat Rao (Chandra Mohan) a head clerk in Registrar office. He feels that the process of love between two teens is a sheer waste of time, though he loves Vandana (Mahi).

Ramana's uncle (Giribabu) is a doctor whose son is settled in USA. That doctor has a 5-acre land in city outskirts. Ramana offers to manage that land and commercialize it. But it is occupied by a land grabber Sambhu (Pratap Singh). Ramana uses a trick to trigger more rivalry between Sambhu and his archrival Poorna (GV) and gets mileage out of it.

The rest of the story is all about how he becomes a rich man and puts a stop to the lives of Poorna and Sambhu.


Rajendra Babu: Rajendra Babu looks OK and his action is average. But he looks quite aged to make a debut as a youth hero.

Mahi: Mahi suited the role of dumb girl friend to hero very well. Her character does not offer any scope for Mahi to do any action.

Brahmanandam: There is no punch in the role of 'Gundusoodi Seenu' character. This character is too monotonous and of predictable nature. His role does not have any relevance to the film.

Technical Departments:

Screenplay - Direction: The screenplay and direction of this film is very amateur. The conception of scenes in the film is too artificial and cinematic. Siva Nageswara Rao should stick to the making comedy films, which he is best at, instead of treading in to youth and action genre.

Story - Dialogues: Story of the film is a drawback. It's too predictable and slow. Dialogues in the film are good in parts. But the director failed to make the best use of dialogues.

Music: Music of the film is pretty dull. None of the songs are worth remembering..

Analysis: The first half of the film is dull and second half is slightly better. This film is a failed effort from Siva Nageswara Rao to dish out youth orientation and action instead of humor. You can avoid watching this film.
