Ramudu (Taraka Rathna) is a youngster and also a 'chekka bhajana' performer in Bhadrachalam. When his grandmother forces him to get married, he falls in love with a 'chekka bhajana' learner Seeta (Radhika) and marries her. Immediately after the marriage, Seeta gives a slip to Ramudu and returns to her homeland Germany.

The real reason for Seeta's act is due to an advice from her astrologer. He said that her first marriage would not work out. Her marriage is fixed with her bava Ravi and she loves him too. But she does not want any complications in her marital life. Hence she marries Ramudu at Bhadrachalam and ditches him to go back to Germany and marry Ravi so that her second marriage would be fruitful.

The rest of the story is all about how Ramudu with his chekkalu and Lord Rama's vermillion (kunkuma) fly to Germany to fight his aunt Jagadamba (Vani Sri) and bring back her daughter and his wife Seeta.

Artists Performance

Taraka Rathna improved a lot as an actor. His histrionics in pathos scenes are pretty mature. He had a village get-up in this film. Heroine Radhika is average. Vani Sri is highly obese and she did not do justice to her role in terms of appearance and dubbing. KR Vijaya did the role of hero's grandmother. Posani Krishna Murali did the role of comic oriented Pakistan-based cabbie. Chalapati Rao and Sudhakar are adequate in their roles.

Technical Departments:

Story: Story of a film is a typical story happens between village-smart boy and western-haughty girl with a aunt-challenge backdrop to it. It has certain shades of story of 'Alluda Majaka'. Posani Krishna Murali provided story for Alluda Majaka as well.

Screenplay - direction: Director Suresh Krishna disappoints the movie lovers with his work. The screenplay is completely predictable. Direction is mediocre. There is no touch of Suresh Krishna in this film. He should have paid some attention to certain scenes which shown German Cops in bad light. Here is one example ...

The German cops beat up hero badly on the behest of Vani Sri. When cops report their officer that hero is dead, that officer tests the same by pressing a burning cigarette on the neck of hero. When hero does not respond, the officer declares that hero is dead and commands the cops to throw the body into ocean.

Other departments: Music by Sri is good. 'Ram Bhajana' song appears in different formats/compositions in this film. Photography is Pratap is OK. Dialogues by Posani Krishna Murali are average. Fights by Raju are OK. The producer made this film on a big budget.

Analysis: First half of the film is boring. Second half is slightly better, though lengthy. The excessive usage of NTR's photo in the first half and unnecessary references to Vamsam sounds clichéd. The backdrop of Germany in the entire second half makes people feel out of place. We have to wait and see if the 4th film of Taraka Rathna gives him the much awaited break or not.
