(Nagababu) is a business magnate and a widower. Usha
(Ankita) is the daughter of KK. KK is obsessed with
his newly-appointed sexy secretary Naveena (Kiran Rathod).
Naveena wants to seduce KK and there by marry him so
that she could become a millionaire.
and Naveena plan for a holiday trip to Swiss so that
they could find some privacy. Usha comes to know about
it and wants to foil their trip. She calls her father
up with a false voice and tells him that his daughter
is kidnapped and he needs to bring Rs. 10 lakhs to a
park as ransom.
there is gang of 7 (Brahmanandam, Rajendra Prasad, Prabhudeva,
Krishna Bhagawan, Mallikharjuna Rao, Raghubabu &
Jyothi) that steals cars and sells them off to wealthy
guys. And that gang happens to be there in that park
in this context. Bangarraju (Rajendra Prasad) observes
the deal and steals the suitcase with the money. KK
is told by the kidnapper that his daughter is locked
up in her car. When KK is about to reach the car, Bujji
(Prabhudeva) steals it. When Bujji gets the car to his
garage, he realizes that Usha is hiding in the car's
rest of the story is all about how the kidnap drama
and the subsequent chases culminate into a happy ending.
Prabhu Deva gets a lion's share in this film in terms
of footage and comedy portrayal. He has done extremely
well with his typical mannerisms and impeccable comedy
timing. Hero Sivaji dubbed the voice of Prabhu Deva.
Prasad is good in his own way. But has less footage
for himself as the main story revolves between the lead
pair Ankita and Prabhudeva. Ankita is the cynosure of
all eyes. She did well in both histrionics and exposing
aspects. Kiran Rathod is simply sexy in those revealing
is apt for the role of a lecherous widower and a caring
father. Brahmanandam is good as 'Seeko', the leader
of car thieves. After a long gap, actor Surya has got
a really comic role. His performance in the police lock-up
is hilarious. Ali's role that explains how boozing helps
in thinking wise is enjoyable. MS Narayana has got an
interesting role as well. But it is Kovai Sarala who
created tremors with her performance in the beginning
and end of the film as an aged bride.
The basic storyline is heavily inspired by Alicia
Silverstone's 1997's Hollywood blockbuster 'Excess Baggage'.
But they should have taken into consideration that the
concept of stealing cars and selling them in illegal
market is not really native for us.
- direction: It's a pretty heavy task to make such
a small storyline into a 15-reel film. The director
has partly succeeded in making this film as a comedy
fare. However, there are quite a few loose ends and
boring moments, especially the jungle episodes and chases
towards the climax. The songs are a let down as they
are not required in a thriller. Director Prasad seems
to be improving in his moviemaking skills from film
Dialogues by Chintapally Ramana are a definite plus
for the film. Here is one comedy dialogue
to Surya: Nenu ninnu shoot chestaanu. Nuvvu chastav.
Surya: Nenu chavanu
Surya: Nuvvu kaaliste
naaku bullets tagalavu kada
departments: Music by Chakri is a let down. The
background music is also mediocre. Camerawork by Sarat
is OK. Fights by Ram Lakshman are interesting. Editing
by Shankar is fair. The NRI producer Harsha Reddy seems
to have spent lots of money in making this film and
it shows up on the screen.
This film is typical kidnap/crime comedy in the lines
of Kshanakshanam and Money. First half of the film is
OK. Second half is also OK. The jungle episode where
love is generated between Prabhudeva and Ankita seems
to be bit dragged. The most hilarious comedy scene in
the film is the one where MS Narayana replaces Rs. 500/-
currency bundles with pebbles in the climax of the film.
The comedy film lovers can watch it once. With an aggressive
promotion/publicity, this film has the chances of becoming
a money earner.
