(Sairam Shankar) is a carefree boy-next-door. Sanjana
(Samiksha) is a doting sister of four elder brothers.
Siddu is like a family member in Sanjana's household.
One fine day, Sanjana elopes with Siddu. And fate separates
them. Sanjana goes into the protective hands of naxalites.
Siddu lands up in the house of a journalist (Flora Saini).
Siddu thinks Sanjana is dead. Sanjana thinks Siddu is
no more. The rest of the story is all about how fate
unites them again.
Shankar: Looks wise Sairam Shankar is pretty average
and resembles his brother Puri Jagan. His appearance
and looks suited the 'awara' image meant for the character.
However it is his dialogue delivery and voice modulation
that needs lot of improvement. There are good dialogues
written for him. There is so much of situational comedy
in that character (like the ones written for Ravi Teja
in Idiot and ANOTA). Because of bad dialogue delivery
and no comedy timing, it has gone in vain. His costumes
(in dances) and dancing style resembles that of Nagarjuna.
Main heroine Samiksha is
pretty average in looks and histrionics. Asha
Saini (Flora Saini) put on lot of weight and
it shows up even more on the screen. Puja
(daughter of Subhashini) did a small role. And she is
Satya Prakash is good as
the leader of ultras. Brahmanandam,
Ali, Venu Madhav and Dharmavarapu
Subramanyam generated good amount of humor in
this film. Naga Babu is
terrific as police official with his serious comedy.
Brahmaji is very good
in the role of a cop. Rama Raju,
Reddy and others are adequate.
The story of the film is good. In typical love stories,
the entire first half would be devoted for love between
lead pair and keep the opposition from parents as the
interval block. The second half runs around the hide
and seek game. But this story is different. The film
does not show the love angle between lead pair till
they elope after 30 minutes of start of the film. The
entire love story is shown in a song. The basic storyline
- direction: Puri Jagan's screenplay is worth commending.
He did not choose the beaten path to narrate a love
story. After 30 minutes of starting the film, we feel
that it is a routine story in the lines of Chanti/Gangotri.
And then Puri includes an unexpected twist and from
there the film takes off. Direction of Puri Jagan is
good. However, he had to compromise on showing cops,
naxalites and TV journalists on an unrealistic way just
as to make them suit the story. The hero characterization
in this film too is very aggressive and reckless just
like the hero characterization in his preceding films.
Dialogues by Puri Jagan reminds us of the ones in 'Idiot'
film. However, the hero should have good voice modulation
and comedy timing to crack the witty oneliners on the
screen. The dialogues written for comedy actors are
A couple of songs in this film are good. 'Endukani'
song is the best song in this film in terms of content,
placement and emotion. Surprisingly, Chakri has given
a superior background score for this film. Re-recording
of the film is also good
departments: Cinematography by Shyam K Naidu is
appropriate. Stunts of Ram Lakshman are satisfactory.
Editing cuts by Marthand K Venkatesh are fast and effective.
Production values by Vaishno Academy are fair.
The first half an hour of the film is routine. Film
takes off from the point of elopement. The positive
points of the film are Puri Jagan's story, screenplay,
comedy and music. The negative point is dubbing of the
hero and lack of love episodes (being a film that is
titled as 143 (I love you)). The TV9 episodes which
are meant for comedy scenes tend to take a dig at TV9's
style of reporting. This film is an above average film
with ample comedy and mass sequences. And it would definitely
get profits to Puri Jagan who kept the distribution
rights of entire territory to himself. But the question
here is about how much profit it would fetch!
