Sachidananda Murthy alias Sachin (Rohit) is an enthusiastic youngster and an aspiring cricketer. He is son of a car driver (Chalapati Rao) and belongs to a lower-middle-class family that lives in a slum area. His father wants him to study well and earn a government job. But Sachin wants to become a national level cricketer and play for India.

Then there is an honest cricket coach called Vithal Rao (Benarjee) who spots Sachin in streets and encourages him. There is Rajiv (Rajiv Kanakala) - son of a state minister - who becomes a Ranji player using his contacts. Rekha (Rekha) is the daughter of GK Naidu (Vizag Prasad), a national cricket selection committee member.

Rajiv wants to get selected for Indian cricket team and love Rekha as well. But Sachin - being a prolific cricketer - becomes a strong obstacle for both these objectives. The entire film revolves around how Sachin realizes his dreams.

Artists: Rohit looks apt for the role. His dancing abilities are once again utilized in this film. However, the dubbing voice given to him did not gel well with his body language. Rekha is good. But the range of her expressions is limited. Benerjee has done a very good role in this film. Rajiv Kanakala looks repetitive with the same kind of characters in all his films. Cricketer Venkatapati Raju gave a special appearance in this film.

Technicians: The story by Puri Jagan has got very good elements to catch the pulses of crowds. However it is the execution that has dampened the spirits of otherwise a good story. Screenplay and direction are pretty mediocre. The director failed to build tempo in cricket match scenes in the film. The opening comedy scenes on Chalapati Rao and Sangeeta are of cheap taste. Dialogues by Kona are not impressive except for the ones written for the heroine Rekha. Music by Chakri is average. There are a couple of mass tunes. Photography by senior most cinematographer VSR Swamy is OK. But, there is so much of lighting inconsistency in the film (may be due to budgetary constraints to use good lighting and reflectors).

Analysis: The film starts on a very routine note. However, the film gets into interesting mode by the time hero gets in to each level of cricketing leagues. But the director failed to cash on the cricketing scenes in this film though the entire film revolves around cricket with the climax being the match between India and Pakistan (juniors).
