(Rohan) wants to take a break after completing engineering
studies and visits his struggling ad filmmaker friend
Ram Nepal Varma (Ali) in Hyderabad on vacation. He falls
in love with a girl called Anjali (Anjali) over there.
He happens to ridicule renowned astrologer Sharma (Vijaya
Chandar) in a seminar. After looking at Sandeep's birth
chart, Sharma announces that Sandeep would be going
through 3 important incidents of his life in next 30
days. These incidents are as follows
1. He would
2. He would become celebrity overnight, without any
efforts from him.
3. He would kill a person in public place with lots
of people witnessing the crime.
When the first
two incidents occur as per the astrologer's predictions,
Sandeep gets tensed and starts searching for astrologer
for a solution. The rest of the story is about whether
the 3rd prediction comes true or not.
Debutant actor Rohan is
bit raw and stiff. He needs to polish up his screen
presence. He imitated Pawan Kalyan in attires and mannerisms
during songs. Heroine Anjali
is pretty average. However, it is Vijaya
Chandar who steals the show with brilliant yet
controlled performance. Tanikella
Bharari is good. So is young villain Subba
Raju. Ali, MS Narayana,
Dharmavarapu and Brahmanandam
fail to tickle funny bones. But the mime by the old
man character who wants to be dead is pretty
hilarious. Rakhi Sawant
sizzled in an item song with minimal clothing.
- screenplay - direction: Story of the film is based
on astrology and it offers variety. Films like M Dharmaraju
MA and Murari came in the past with similar themes.
The director needs to be extremely deft in narrating
such sensitive themes in order to work the magic. Director
Pradeep C Shetty's could not justify the good storyline
with his direction. Screenplay of the film is shoddy.
He resorted for very routine comedy scenes and uninteresting
love episodes to support the astrology thread.
departments: Music by Ramana Gogula is good. Karmanye
was efficiently used for background music of astrological
thread. But picturization of the other songs is not
up to the mark. Dialogues are average. Photography of
the film by T Rajendra is mediocre.
Analysis: Opening shot of the
film is good. First half is mediocre. Interval block
is interesting. Second half is predictable. Climax of
the film offers some variety. Positive points of the
film are music (not picturization) and astrological
thread. Negative points are characterizations, uninteresting
narration, unimpressive comedy and shoddy screenplay.
The producers should be appreciated for selecting a
novel storyline. But substandard execution marred the
prospects of the film. We have to wait and watch how
this film be new faces fare at box office.
