Bala Subramanyam alias Subbu (NTR) is a college student who
is loved by each and everyone for his cool nature and lovable
philosophy of keeping his head cool all the time. Neeraja
(Sonali Joshi) is a Good Samaritan who keeps on donating money
anonymously to fund 25 seats in the college in which Subbu
is studying. Subbu is curious to know about the person who
is donating that money.
falls in love with Neeraja, mainly for her positive attitude.
There is a strong reason for Neeraja to donate money to the
college. There is a stronger reason for Subbu to become a
the flashback, Subbu rescues a girl who met with an accident
and admits her in a hospital. She is a daughter of a rich
industrialist GK Chowdary. GK Chowdary misunderstands Subbu
as the other Bala Subramanyam who is responsible for his daughter
to become pregnant. Without knowing truth, GK becomes a reason
for the suicides of Subbu's entire family. GK realizes the
truth later. And incidentally Neeraja is the younger sister
of the girl whom Subbu rescues.
the time of interval the audience realize that Subbu are Neeraja
are in search of each other. Rest of the film twirls around
how this couple realizes that they are made for each other,
NTR is improving from film to film. To put in a more frank
way, people started accepting NTR as his number of films is
increasing (remember the old adage - tinaga tinaga vemu teeyanundu).
He is good in dances and fights in this film. He should concentrate
on reducing his weight. His physical appearance has not changed
for the last one year. His dialogue delivery has improved
considerably. He is very natural in terms of acting and dialogues.
There is a mud fight scene in this film that made the entire
theater go roaring with the laughs, where he literally rags
the goon's batch with his instant dialogue delivery.
Joshi: She is not attractive enough to be a heroine. She
is very artificial in her acting. NTR should concentrate in
getting a attractive heroines for his films. All his heroines
so far did not contribute to any of his films.
Dialogues - Story - Screenplay - Direction: The story
concept of the film is novel. The execution of scenes in the
first half is swift. Suresh Varma is from Ram Gopal Varma's
school. He is brilliant in few shots of the film. But in the
second half of the film, Suresh Varma failed to sustain the
interest of the viewers. Dialogues in this film are apt. The
way hero and heroine characterization done is very poetic
and positive minded.
Music of the film is very good. All the songs are good and
well shot. 'Haree Hara' and 'Mast Mast' songs standout. Background
music for fights is also good. Mani Sharma gave racy tunes
for this film.
Photography is the main asset of the film. 435 camera is used
for the entire film. 435 is generally used to shoot only songs
and chase scenes, as hiring this camera is very expensive.
There are lots of matrix kinds of shots in this film in action
sequences. The camera work for New Zealand songs is also exceptional.
The debutant, and the first women cinematographer of Telugu
cinema, Ms. Vijaya Sri has done a commendable job.
The highlight of this film is execution of fights. Though
there are only 3 major fights in the film they standout for
the excellent work done by Horseman Babu.
The producers are basically fans of Original NTR and Bala
Krishna. They are major distributors (Devi Films and RS films)
from Ceded. They seem to have given free hand to Suresh. The
entire film has rich production values.
First half of the film is very good as it has the entire story
in the flashback. The second half is average, and at times
boring. This film is good in patches. The separate comedy
track between Brahmanandam and AVS is good. You can watch
the film at your leisure. You can enjoy the first half.
