(Kesava Teerdha) maternal uncle is sentenced to death
for a crime which is not committed by him. Three businessmen
- Chalapati (Ramaraju), Raghupati (Raghubabu) and Lakshmipati
(GV) - fix him on false charges. Deva wants prove the
innocence of his uncle to police and court. Whenever
he tries to tail on one of these businessmen, the business
accidentally gets killed and the blame goes on to Deva.
He is also chased by a TV reporter (Mounika) for having
a little dispute with her. This story is all about how
Deva proves the innocence of his maternal uncle and
sets him free from jail.
Kesav Teerdha: Kesava Teerdha is passable. The
director and cinematographer should get more credit
because they made him presentable by concealing the
weaknesses. He appears good in fights, but need to have
more flexibility in histrionics and body language. He
is bad at dances.
Mounika is mediocre. Ramaraju is OK as villain. The
situational comedy generated out of Church Father (played
by Janakraj) is good. Devan is adequate. Malladi Raghava
has shown some variance in grandfather role in terms
of looks and voice modulation. Abhinaya Sri did an item
song in this film. Raghubabu is good. Sudhakar is passable.
film becomes to the genre of crime thrillers which we
don't get very often in Telugu. Direction of the film
is partly good. Screenplay is bit hazy. Dialogues by
Vinay are OK. Music by Joopudi is below par. Photography
is average. Fights are good.
Analysis: First half of the film
is OK. The second half becomes more and more illogical
as it marches ahead. The plus point of the film is genre
of story that is not often made in Telugu. The negative
points are the lead cast, music and illogical second
half. We have to wait and see if this film gets noticed
by public or not.
