Expectations from Arun Prasad, the director of the hit film
Tammudu, were high. But he disappoints with Prema Sandadi.
Moreover, he lets the obscenity seep in. The story line is
too weak to hold the audience in its grip. And it is the routine
story of Rayalaseema factionalism, with two groups, led by
Raghupati Rayudu (Capt. Raju) and Chengal Rayudu (Mohanraj)
being constantly at war. The enmity colors the second generation,
with their younger brothers Subba Rayudu (Kota Srinivasa Rao)
and Venkatrayudu (Jayaprakash Reddy), continuing the legacy
(Srikanth), son of Subb Rayudu after completing his MBA in
the U.S. is returning home in a train. Incidentally Sita (Anjala
Zhaveri), Venkatrayudu's daughter, who too completes MBA,
but at Visakhapatnam, also travels on the same train. But
both of them are hardly award of each other's presence. They
remain strangers till almost the last reel of the film. But
the families and friends on either side think they are in
love, because of the wrong information fed by Samara Simha
Reddy (Brahmanandam). He is a modern day Narada. The warring
fathers on either side take their children to task, even as
they deny the charge. A miffed Krishna actually decides to
go for her. Sita also thinks alike. The result: the two meet
and fall in love.
plot is loaded with too many irrelevant characters. Krishna's
half a dozen of friends, for example, just blabber throughout
the film. Srikanth and Anjala's roles have not been etched
depicting factionalism look senseless. All the elderly characters
spend most the time hurling innuendoes at each other.
appears after a long time in a role that does not help him.
Koti's music fails to save the film or audience.
