Kiran (Akash) and Aishwarya (Rekha) are neighbors for 20 years in Hyderabad. They study in the same college and immensely hate each other. Rekha's parents shift to Ooty. In Ooty house, Aishwarya founds an unopened greeting card addressed to Deepika (Tanu Roy). Aishwarya comes to know that Deepika is the girl who stayed in that room in the past. Deepika committed suicide because her lover Vamsi (Venkat) did not return after going to Hyderabad.

Aishwarya opens the letter addressed to Deepika and realizes that Vamsi wrote it. It's a sensitive letter written by Vamsi explaining his feelings towards her. Aishwarya does not want to disappoint Vamsi that Deepika is no more. She starts writing letters on the name of 'Deepika'. Interestingly, on the other side Kiran would be replying all these mails on the name of 'Vamsi', as Vamsi dies of accident in Hyderabad.

The rest of the film is about how these two people come to know about the real story and turn the their hatred into love.



Akash: This guy resembles Naveen in most of the shots. He looks fresh and energetic. His acting is just right for his role. Sri's dubbing for his voice is also another asset.

Rekha: This Kannada 'Chitram' girl made her debut with this film. She looked fresh and verve. But the range of expressions she has is limited. She resembles Aiswarya Rai in many aspects. The same girl who gave voice to Richa Sharma in Nuvve Kavali did the dubbing for Rekha's character.

Tanu Roy: This girl might get branded as suicide heroine. Her character in 'Itlu Sravani Subramanyam' starts with an attempt for suicide and ends with another attempt for suicide. In this film too her character lands up committing suicide.

Technical Departments:

Story, Screenplay & Direction: Seenu Vetla sounds promising in this film. His shot-making abilities are good. He has got good ideas. But what he lacks is the holistic perspective. The direction and narration for individual scenes is good. The story is supposed to be inspired by the real life incident of the director, though there are some resemblances to the Hollywood flick 'You Got [email protected]'.

Music: Music of this film is good though some of the tunes are inspired by 'back street boys' work. Background music too is impressive. Devi Sri Prasad has got a chance to work with a fulltime love story, which has scope for good music.

Dialogues: Dialogues of Ramana Chintapally are commendable. The dialogues in the first half are hilarious.

Photography: Photography of this film is excellent. Sameer Reddy has done an extraordinary job. The beauty of Ooty is well exploited in this film.

Analysis: The first half of the film is pretty good with lots of college scenes. You can find lots of similarities to Nuvve Kavali in the first half. The second half is more of serious nature. The matinee crowds do enjoy the first half a lot, though there is no story. But the second half of the film turned out to be the drawback. The twists and turns in the second half are uncalled for. Over all, this film is a good experiment, which did not worked well if you take the totality of the film. We got to wait and see how the masses receive this film!
