Sreeram (Uday Kiran) is an unemployed youth who tries for the police selections to become a Sub Inspector of Police. There is a righteous police officer Narayana (Siva Krishna) who encourages Sreeram to become a police officer. He has a steady girl friend Madhu (Anitha). One evening, Sreeram beats a guy black and blue as that guy misbehaves with Madhu. Later on, Sreeram realizes that the person whom he has beaten is a deadly CI (Circle Inspector) of Police whose name is 'Encounter Shankar' (Asish Vidyardhi). Sreeram's sister marriage is settled with the brother of Madhu. When the marriage of Sreeram's sister is about to happen, Encounter Shankar traces Sreeram and beats him up badly in police station and leaves him on a railway track and expects the train to run over Sreeram. But luckily, the will-powered Sreeram jumps form the train track and escapes from the death.

The parents of Sreeram find out the beaten up Sreeram with the help of Narayana and they join him in a hospital. The doctor inspects the injuries, dresses him up and tells them that Sreeram won't be able to move his body for 3 months and he needs complete rest. But his interview for SI post is scheduled in the next month, which requires him to be physically fit. He motivates himself and attends interview as with 100% fitness.

In the meantime, Encounter Shankar is under impression that Sreeram is dead. But Sreeram is selected for the post of SI and Encounter Shankar is asked to enquire and give the conduct certificate of Sreeram. After confirming that Sreeram is alive, Encounter Shankar gives a bad conduct certificate. And he also teases Sreeram into a street fight and takes clandestine photographs and produces them to the higher authorities as evidence.

The hide and seek game between Sreeram and Encounter Shankar comes to an end when Encounter Shankar comes to Sreeram's place to humiliate him. How Sreeram win over Encounter Shankar is that point that is covered in the climax.


Uday Kiran: Uday Kiran seems to have pumped up a lot of iron to build a much better muscular body for this film. He is cute as usual. And he improved a lot in dialogue delivery (or we got used to his diction?). And the director made sure that the dialogues by Uday Kiran are underplayed. Only mass dialogue uttered by Uday Kiran in the film is 'Randiraa Naa Kodakallara'.

Anitha: Anitha is glamorous compared to Nuvvu Nenu. But not sizzling enough to attract the attention of Telugu film viewers. She played the role with lots of ease. Another one-song-heroine Kiran Rathod puts of a lot of weight and did well in 'Pedavullo Pepsicola' song.

Asish Vidyardhi: It's the second time act for Asish Vidyarthi as he donned the same role in Tamil 'Dhil' as well. He played it to the perfection. The dubbing of Ravi Shankar (who generally gives for Raghuvaran) also suited it.

Sunil: Sunil has lots of comedy track in the first half of the film. And he cracked jokes well and they are well received by the audiences. Somebody told that he wrote most of his comedy scenes in this film.

Technical Departments:

Screenplay - direction: VN Aditya's forte has always been the comedy and projection of sensitive love. And he stuffed it a lot in the first half, as it requires the scenes of hero falling in love with heroine. He made good use of Sunil for comedy. But when it comes to dealing with mass elements, he seems be unsure of whether to show them raw or underplay those elements. There is one very good scene in second half, which he underplayed (the scene in which Uday Kiran beats up Asish Vidyardhi in a caste-based politician meeting).

Dialogues: Paruchuri brothers have given pleasant dialogues. But the mass punch is missing in the dialogues of second half.

Music: RP Patnaik has set some standards for his music. And unfortunately the music in this film is not up to the expectations. The song 'Mamare Mazaare' got good response, as it's the only situational song in this film. 'Tiyateeyani Kalalanu song is also good.

Thrills: Thrills by Vijay are impressive. But the climax fight is dragged and it appeared as if the hero and villain beat each other up in a systematic i-take-one-and-you-take-one style.

Photography: Photography of this film is an asset. Shiv Kumar has done a neat job.

Analysis: The first half of the film is pleasant with good comedy scenes though those scenes might dilute the seriousness and impact of the film. Second half builds up the tempo for mass elements. Again those mass elements are not impressive enough to satiate the viewers. The story of the film is age old one. Over the film is average. The movie is not bad as long as you do not mind scenes like hero escaping from death because of an 'Anjaneya Dandakam' that comes in the backdrop. We have to wait and see if Sreeram turns out to be a birthday gift (born on 26th June) for Uday Kiran in the form of a hit or not.
