Review

Story: The film has a simple story line but the telling could not but be simple too, and with traces of work that had already presented earlier. Ramu  is the son of Annapurnamma, the daughter of a rich feudal gentleman in  Adityapuram village. (his mother and maternal grand father were no more and shown only on the photo frames on the walls) Ramu’s family moves to Bangalore on business his two brothers  look after business and Ramu goes to Hyderabad for his studies. He meets Akarsha (Samantha) in Hyderabad and ropes her in with all his tact to make her fall in love with him. Ramu with the help of Akarsha’s granny Baby (done eloquently by Rohini Hattangadi) impresses her successfully and takes the family to her sister’s marriage. There at the marriage something shocking is shown as Ramu  murdering Akarsha’s father in a revealing manner that everything was his plan and plotting. Thus the first half engages audience so well with humour and spontaneity. The second half would have investigation, flash back and revenge story in a much assumed regular fashion. The flash back shows Ammulu (Shruthi Hassan) as a nice girl of the village of Adityapuram with an aim to make it Adharshapuram  - an ideal village. Then comes the capitalistic, ruthless, power blinded trio : Billi Bikshapathi (Ravi shankar) a womanizer  goon, his father(Kota Srinivasa Rao) a central minister and Mosallapadu Nagabhushanam (Mukesh Rishi) an industrialist to Adityapuram to start a steel plant. Ramu at the same time goes to attend Sri Rama Navami celebrations in the village and falls in love with Ammulu the good heart of the village. What happens then in the village before and after the murder of Akarsha’s father should be watched in a packed drama and dialogue full scenes only to form an insipid feel of it at the end.

CineRadham’s Eye View : The film has all the ingredients of the modern hit recipe but tastes differently. Watch it if you are NTR Jr. ‘s fan for a taste of his master piece performance of many rasas (angles).  The film has good aura by camera work, heroines are shown greatly especially Shruthi Hassan good dialogues, stunts and style etc,. but music couldn’t add much except for one song, scenes and their sequence were in doubt, the treatment would have been well thought out.

Colorful Kichidi but Tasted Differently: It’s all Harish Shankar now who should do the talking more than his film Ramayya Vasthavayya  for his good plan and packaging techniques. But for his simplicity in telling this feel good story, as aimed always by his producer Raju, there are many doubts. The film fails to make an over all magic impression with masti that Jr. NTR’s fans expect. The music is another big disadvantage of the film except for one song – ‘Kanulu Kanulu’ even then, the actor NTR breathed life into dance with his kind of robotic body rhythm. Shruthi in Ammulu character shows good maturity, felt like she lost that hidden gloom in the process of competing with her colleagues both NTR and Samantha. Samantha too did a good job where she din’t have much for complementing through the story line. All other actors did a special job in their own way to make an individual mark of each. Some of the important socially worth points were needed to be given space in narration than those less meaningful songs. The movie’s story line is very good in line with the recent trend of discussing girls’ welfare in our homes in India.
