(RP Patnaik) is a blind man and a sole bread earner
for a family consisting of five members. Vasanthi (Priya)
is Seenu's sister and she is very close to him. Lakshmi
(Navneet) is a dumb woman who is a close buddy to Seenu
and Vasanthi since their childhood. Seenu and Lakshmi
are in love and they want to get married as soon as
Naidu (Prakash Raj) is a Good Samaritan in that village.
He takes Seenu to an eye doctor. That doctor says that
Seenu has all chances to see the world if a pair of
eyes are donated to Seenu. Lakshmi comes forward to
donate her eyes to Seenu. Meanwhile, a political acquaintance
of Appala Naidu eyes these two girls Vasanthi and Lakshmi.
One fine day, he rapes both of them and threatens that
Seenu would be killed if they tell this fact to anybody.
Would Seenu come to know about it? What is the plight
of these two girls?? Watch it yourself to know the climax!!
Patnaik: RP Patnaik is extraordinary in the role
of a blind man. His performance is very genuine and
is absolutely incredible. He seems to have studied blind
men a lot. There is so much of purity and innocence
in his dialogue delivery. RP Patnaik wins everybody
hearts with his amazing histrionics.
Priya is another dusky beauty on Telugu silver screen.
Her histrionics are perfect. Sunitha dubbed her voice.
For all those guys who wondered how come a beautiful
girl like Navneet is pitted against RP Patnaik, here
is an answer. She played the role of a dumb girl. She
is apt for that role. Both these girls have shown great
maturity in enacting certain heavy melodramatic scenes
in the second half.
Nutan Prasad did the role of a nagging father to hero.
It is nice to see Nutan Prasad doing a negative role
after a span of almost a decade. Prakash Raj looks fresh
in this film. Thanks to his change of style in dialogue
delivery! Sunil succeeded in providing some entertainment.
Brahmanandam did a special role as music pundit. Giri
Babu did a supporting character to RP. Rahul did the
role of womanizer in this film with good poise. Performance
of the actress who did RP's mother is excellent. Tammareddy
Bharadwaja and Kulasekhar did special appearances in
It's a story of emotional struggle faced by 3 people
(Seenu, Vasanthi and Lakshmi).
- direction: E Srinivas has made a good debut as
a director with this film. He is very talented. To narrate
such an arty story in an interesting style for 2 and
half hours is not an easy task. He made sure that the
heart touching melodramatic scenes are not sounded clichéd.
Screenplay of the film is neat and direction is first
rate. He is extremely good at elevating human relationships.
Dialogues by veteran actor Tanikella Bharani are extraordinary.
Few of the dialogues in the beginning of the film helped
in establishing blind man character very strongly. Here
are the few of the dialogues -
'Aa demudu naaku chinnappude current peekesaadu' (when
his family members were feeling irritated that power
was gone for a few minutes)
2. 'Kallajodu Pettukunnanduku . Kallu Teripinchaaru'
3. 'Ee roju nenu chala andam gaa vunnanu kada' (blind
hero looking himself in a mirror)
4. 'Nenu sangeetam sastram lo vundi anukune vaadini.
Nuvvu sangeetam prakruthilo vundani niroopinchaavu'
(Brahmanandam to RP)
5. 'Naa Sangeetaniki silalu kadulutayo ledo teleedu.
Kaani nee sangeetamlo ee silani kariginchesaavu'
Music by RP Patnaik is excellent. The picturization
of songs is also very good. The film starts with the
'Kuku koo' song that establishes the hero character
and it familiarizes audiences with the beautiful village.
Paadana song goes in typical 'Naa Paata Panchamrutam'
(Allari Mogudu) style. Vana Vana song is impressive
as it portrays emotional struggle of two girls. Kodanda
Ramudu song gives good basement for the climax. Godari
Nammindi song is too good. RP music made this film a
departments: Photography by KG Soman (Professor
at Pune Film Institute) is excellent. He captured the
beauty and essence of village in very artistic format.
Lyrics by Kula Sekhar are very good. Artwork by DV Suresh
Krishna is close to reality. Editing by Kotagiri Venkateswara
Rao is good. The producer NM Suresh should be commended
for coming forward to make a realistic flick.
First half of the film is very good. Second half is
bit heavy. But the climax is excellent. The director
succeeded in narrating film in a simple, yet effective
way. The sentimental scenes and melodrama is a definite
plus point of the film. You would get tears in your
eyes for certain scenes in this film. RP succeeded in
his twin job of providing histrionics and music. Dialogue
work by Tanikella is another asset. All the movie lovers
should watch this film. The common man has got a mental
block against watching films of this genre. The crowds
who watch this film would be satisfied. But the question
here is if the crowds are willing to come to theater
to watch the story of a blind man. The commercial success
of the film would depend on this point!
