who produces the raw food for us is the least cared
section by the government. The middlemen buy raw products
from peasants at a very minimal price and sell it at
higher level at big price. In the process, the middlemen
and industrialists are making huge profits and the peasants
are not even earning enough money to support their daily
bread and butter needs.
Harischandra Prasad is a noble man who preferred to
remain as peasant in spite of his high educational qualifications.
This film deals with how Tiger Harischandra Prasad identified
the root causes of peasant's problems and cured them
by speaking to the right people.
Hari Krishna did a role
that would take him close to the hearts of masses and
downtrodden people. His performance is genuine and believable.
He is terrific in few scenes where he uttered dialogues
about the problem faced by peasants. Ramya
Krishna is OK as wife of the hero. Her role is
very limited. Dasari Arun Kumar
played the role of young brother of Hari Krishna. He
is adequate. Sangeeta is
limited to a couple of scenes and a song. Brahmanandam
and Kovai Sarala have a
separate comedy track. Performances of Kota
Srinivasa Rao and Narra
Story of the film is not a regular one. It's a message
oriented storyline. We used to see these kinds of stories
coming in early 80's like 'Eenadu'. Off late, these
kinds of storylines were taken up by R Narayana Murthy.
Posani Krishna Murali modified this story to suit the
image of Hari Krishna.
- direction: Screenplay of the film is little slow
as director wanted to establish and elevate the character
of Harichandra Prasad. V Samudra used the mass style
to narrate the film. Though, the story does not seem
to be moving in the film, director made sure that he
got back the attention of audiences in the final two
reels of the film.
Paruchuri Brothers came up with quite a few populist
dialogues for Hari Krishna. The way stats are given
to justify the raw deal given to peasants in the climax
of the film are impressive. There are good mass dialogues
as well like
kottaanante Andhra Pradesh avatala padatav'
"Manchi vallaki manchi cheppakunda chestaanu
Chedda vaallaki chedu cheppi chestaanu"
departments: Music by SA Raj Kumar is average. Photography
by Madhu A Naidu is good. Editing of the film is fair.
Producer should be commended to chose a message oriented
subject to make this film.
The last 20 minutes of the film is impressive. The rest
of the film is narrated in old fashion. This film would
take Hari Krishna close to the masses. It's a good decision
by Hari Krishna to take up a burning issue and bring
forward to masses through this film. The B and C center
audiences would like this film, as it deals with the
problems of peasants.
