Manju (Devina), Anju (Vidya), Ranjani (Swapna Madhuri), Prasad (Vijay) and Sanjay (Mohit) are five teens living in a colony. Prasad is a short guy and has lots of inferiority complex. Anju and Manju have hots for Sanjay. Prasad is in love with Anju. Ranjani is in love with Prasad. Sanjay does not believe in love and hence he doesn't really care to respond to either Anju or Manju.

There is a guy called Rakesh (Sonu Sood) who is brother-in-law of Manju. Their parents set off marriage to Rakesh and Manju. The rest of the story is about who settles with whom and who gets ditched!

Artists performance:

Main Leads: Vijay suited the character of the short man very well. He is quite hyper active. Mohit did the role of Sanjay - a cynosure of girls. He had nativity problems in expression. Devina is pretty sensual. Vidya does not have any major role to play. Swapna Madhuri got a weird character of girl who loves black magic. Sonu Sood is impressive as villain. Director Ravi Babu dubbed Sonu Sood's voice.

Other characters: Surya played the role of a father who suspects his son all the time and beat him up as and when he gets an opportunity. Subhashini (the black female from Allari film) did the role of sex-starved Kameswari, mother of a heroine. Her portrayal and mannerisms are pretty vulgar. There is a scene in which she parades in erotic costumes that shows her in swimwear and stockings. She is absolutely pathetic. Chalapati Rao did an insignificant role. Director Ravi Babu played the real time role of movie director. Devi Charan played a comedy-oriented role of sidekick to villain and he evokes some laughter with his getup and mannerisms. Chitram Seenu did the role of a drunkard student. Dharmavarapu Subramanyam donned six characters in this film.

Technical Departments:

Screenplay - direction: What marred the whole film is the poor script and bland direction. Ravi Babu who proved himself as a director of new film genre with a sensible 'Allari' had failed to give a decent film this time. The total plot of the film is unrealistic and characters are very artificial. He seems to have followed 'American Pie' genre films from Hollywood and you can find lots of unrealistic setups (like Cloakrooms in college, drive-in theaters, masquerade [Halloween] parties, designer college bus [Yellow-painted Ramoji Film City visitor bus], Coffee Shop hangouts etc). Director missed the nativity aspect and audience does not identify any character/scene to themselves or their experiences. Screenplay of the film is uninspiring.

Dialogues: Though Nivas has done a decent job the situations are not good enough to generate any laughter in the film. There is no timing in comedy.

Art: One of the assets of the film is exotic artwork by Bhupesh. The interiors of the houses in the film are delight for eyes. The sets erected for songs are also of a very good aesthetic taste.

Music: The songs composed by Chakri and choreography by Prasanna are assets for the film. Background is average. Songs come as refreshing air in this film.

Other departments: Camerawork by Joshi is good. Editing by Marthand K Venkatesh is average. Stunts by Horseman Babu are good.

The film is a let down for movie lovers who expected another good film from Ravi Babu. The assets of the film are artwork by Bhupesh and music by Chakri. The main drawback of the film is insipid screenplay, lack of nativity and artificial characterization. The scenes that depict sex are bland in the film. There is a small divider between sensuality and blandness when it comes to dealing with sex. In Allari, Ravi Babu dealt them sensually and in this film he crossed the divider to make the same scenes appear bland.
