Hari: Sri Hari has done excellent job as the comedy hero
in this film. His dialogue delivery and comedy timing is very
Raj: It's a routine role for Prakash Raj. But Prakash
Raj has tried to be different by changing his track. The final
comedy scenes in which Prakash Raj feels pathetic when he
comes to know that his wife is in love with LB Sreeram are
Her role in this film is a vital one. He did her bit with
the sublime action.
A Hollywood comedy film 'Stakeout' (1987) inspires Story of
the film. In that film a gangster appoints two detectives
to spy on his ex girl friend and ultimately the detective
falls in love with the girl. This subject has lot of scope
for the comic antics.
and direction: This film is a typical EVV film. Over a
period of time the comedy of EVV got branded. This film too
has an EVV brand of comedy, which is already over-exposed
to the regular moviegoers. The deft handling of sentiment
in the second half has balanced the overt comedy in this film.
EVV is at his best, when it comes to comedy handling.
This film has got all the comedy actors. But most of the comedy
actors do not have a role to play in the film except for LB
Sreeram. There is also a talking-dog named as 'Shakeela' acted
in this film.
There are lots of 'pun' oriented dialogues. Marudhuri Raja
could not go beyond EVV's scope of comedy dialogues. They
are no different to the dialogues penned by Janardhan Maharshi
in the past for EVV.
This film does not have any songs, which is a biggest asset
of the film. The background music by Vamdemataram is good.
The first half of the film has no story and is full of comedy.
The second half has a little bit of story and sentiment along
with comedy. The comedy of the second half is very well received
(mainly due to the presence of sentiment). This film is recommended
for all the comedy lovers. But at the same time, this film
is no different from EVV's comedy films in the past. 'Thank
You Subba Rao' has got all the ingredients of comedy entertainer.
The producer of this film has retained the rights of the film
and released it through Mayuri except for two areas. This
shows the confidence the producer has in his film. Will the
audience prove the faith the producer has in this film to
be justified? We gotta wait and see!
