five of them are already married and sixth one is about

their marital life and husbands.
story is narrated with 4 flash backs.
She is married to a man who is impotent. Hence, she
develops an extra marital relationship with a rich bachelor.
Both the guys love her sincerely. But one guy can satisfy
her sexually and other cannot. Hence Pativrata accepts
to the proposal of her husband that three of them stay
together. (director gave a justification that if Droupati
is a pativrata with five husbands, this pativrata is
entitled for two guys)
She loves an innocent guy and marries him. But his mother
creates trouble. They move out of guy's house and start
living in a rented place. The landlord (45+ guy) sets
his eye on this pativrata. In stead of opposing the
subtle hints from him, she indirectly encourages him.
When her mother-in-law (husband's mother) come to her
place she mixes sedative in soft drink and make her
drink. She also invites the eager landlord to her house
saying that her husband is away. That landlord sleeps
with mother-in-law of Pativrata, as the room is dark.
The next day, Pativrata gets landlord married to her
She is married to a sadist. He lovers her to the core.
But he does not like her looking at other guys. His
suspicion go to such an extent that he locks her up
when he is going to office. He also does not allow Pativrata's
parents as he does not like them. His father left his
mother for another women. His mother left him and eloped
with some other guy. Hence, he does not want to entertain
the parents of his wife as well. One fine day, he falls
down and gets paralyzed. Pativrata preferred to stay
with him and serve him through out her life than divorcing
She is married to a soldier whose parents need physical
support. The married couple did not get a chance to
have sex as their 3 nights were spoilt by certain incidents.
He is forced to go to border posting on day 4. There
he dies. And Pativrata does not reveal the truth to

serving her in-laws.
and 6th Pativratalu:
5th Pativrata got married to a guy who is philanderer.
And after realizing the truth, she wants to leave him.
And that same guy is conning 6th Pativrata to marry
rest of the story forms the climax.
the artists chosen for this film are apt and appropriate.
Everybody did satisfactory job their own bits. The girl
in 2nd story and the guy in 4th story looked very impressive
(partly due to characterization). Chalapati
Rao did the role of mentor of Pativratalau. Comedian
LB Sriram acted in a one
- screenplay - direction: EVV Satyanaraya - who
made critically acclaimed films like 'Aame' and 'Taali'
in the past with good composition of comedy, sentiment
and emotions tried to do another film in that genre.
But, in stead of going in his own style of narrating
serious subject with his typical comedy, he tried serious
format. And his basic concept of Pativrata seems to
have gone bonkers in the case of first two pativratalu.
EVV Satyanarana could not grab the attention of viewers
while narrating the film. There are quite a few funny
episodes in the film which were meant to be quite serious.
One among them is the soldier fighting with terrorists
while speaking sweet-nothings to his wife over cell
phone. EVV has disappointed his fans with his work.
departments: Dialogues by Janardhan Maharshi are
mediocre. Background music by Kamalakar is ok. Photography
by Trinetra is average. Editing by V Nagireddy is ok.
This film is made on a very low budget.
The main point of the film is good. But director failed
in narrating it in a convincing manner. This is not
a typical EVV film. Comedy is almost nil. The first
two episodes of the film are quite intimidating. EVV
should be appreciated for trying to invent a new genre
of Telugu films by doing a song-less film with unglamorous
faces. But what is the use of trying different things,
if the content is not narrated in an authoritative manner?
EVV should do films that suits his strength than venturing
into alien territories.
