Chamundeswari (Nagma) is an industrial baron. She is a headstrong
lady who loves money and neglects human relations. She dominates
her husband (Naresh) completely. Rama Krishna (NTR) joins
Chamundeswari's house as a servant. Se has a beautiful daughter
named Mythili (Aarti) who is kind hearted and cares for poor
people. In the process, Ramu wins the heart of Mythili. But,
she is loved by a son of a minister (Vizag Prasad). Mythili
falls in love with Ramu after looking at his innocence and
loyalty. One day, Mythili dares to jump from a temple cliff
when Ramu refuses her love. Ramu promises her that he would
marry her to avoid that situation. Meanwhile, Chamundeswari
get angry with Ramu for being in love with her daughter and
summons her father Pasupathi (Jayaprakh) and her five brothers
to help her. When they arrive to warn Ramu, we also see another
old man (K Viswanath) entering the scene as the grandfather
of Ramu. And it is revealed that Ramu and Mythili are related
to each other.
has a sister-in-law (maradalu) called Rukhmini, who is head
on heels over Ramu. Mythily and Ramu love is two-sided. Rukhmini's
love is one sided.
settles the marriage of Mythili with the son of Minister.
But Arti runs away from home and reaches Ramu's house in Piduguralla.
Since Mythili is a minor, Chamundeswari lodges a police complaint.
But Chamundeswari's husband says that she is not abducted
and she came along with him to stay at Ramu's house, as they
are relatives. Then the collector orders that Mythili should
stay under government protection, till she becomes a major.
Mythili becomes a major, she prefers to return back to her
mother. Would Ramu foils the marriage of Mythili with Minister's
son and brings Mythili back with him or not is the point that's
is dealt in the climax.
NTR is the one man who dominated the entire show in all the
departments. His dances are amazing and effortless in all
the songs of the film. His voice is improved a lot and he
maintained constant base of the voice. He is obese in few
scenes and slimmed down in other scenes.
She is apt for the role. This film is the beginning of her
second innings as 'aunty'.
Agrawal: Arti Agrawal is cute, but little fat, in this
film. She is traditional in regular scenes and is pretty hot
She did a typical second heroine role, who fills up the 2-song
and 4-scene pattern. She is looking homely.
Sriram: His role is a typical take off on Maada role of
Vetagadu. He provided some mass comedy in the first half.
Prakash: He provided good comedy with his typical seema
dialect in the second half.
Story: The story has similarities to lots of 'Atha
- Alludu' films like Anasuyammagari Alludu, Allari
Alludu and Nari Nari Naduma Murari in the first
half. But the story has different complexion in the second
half. Looks like the story in the second half is reworked
to suit the newly found mass mega image of NTR after Aadi.
- Direction: B Gopal dealt the first half well with mass
comedy between Nagma and NTR. In the second half B Gopal lost
grip over subject and meandered through scenes that are unnecessarily
inserted to glorify the mass image of NTR. The touch of B
Gopal is missing in making the mass scenes effective the film.
Paruchuri brothers gave terrific dialogues in this film. The
comedy punch given through LB Sriram is good. They wrote very
good ferocious dialogues to NTR. But they could not restrain
from writing too much about magatanam (manhood) of
hero, just like they did for Seema Simham. Like earlier films,
NTR dialogues have too many references to Thatha (Sr. NTR).
There is one particular dialogue uttered by NTR (is NTR making
any political move?) that criticizes the chief minister.
Music by RP Patnaik is good in this film. The songs 2002
Varaku and Voppula
Kuppa are instant hits among the public theater crowds.
Background music is also apt. There is a situational song
bit, which is not included in the audio, in the film toward
Production of the film is done on a lavish scale. The producer
inserted blasting scenes of jeeps and tractors in the climax,
though not necessary, for richness.
The first half of the film is good (if you excuse mass aspect
of the comedy). But the second half is average and boring
at times, as the director meanders to insert too many things
in too little time. The flashback scenes in the film are not
dealt well. For any film, a good climax gives greater impact.
But this film's climax is very cinematic. The USP (Unique
Selling Point) of this film is NTR and you can watch this
film once. If you look for entertainment value as a normal
viewer, you might get disappointed because of second half.
