Nandu (Venkat) is an orphan and he is given shelter
by a police officer Surendra Babu (Prakash Raj). Over
a period of time, Surendra Babu encourages Nandu to
do illegal activities and then Nandu becomes local don
in Charminar area.
(Abhiraami) warns the friends of Nandu who go to her
college to threaten a couple who are in love. After
coming to know about this, Nandu decides to approach
Keerthi as Anand and make her fall in love with him.
In the process, he actually falls in love with Keerthi
and also realizes what harm he is doing to the society
and to the neighborhood community.
on it is revealed that SP Surendra is none but the father
of Keerthi. The rest of the film is about the battle
between SP Surendra and Nandu.
Venkat looks apt for the role of a street goon. He need
to improve on his performance in emotional scenes. Prakash
Raj looks out of place in the cop character as its not
well developed. On the top of it, looks like somebody
else has done dubbing for Prakash Raj in this film.
Heroine Abhirami is tall and beautiful. She did well.
Departments: Basic storyline is bad. One fail to
understand why this story need to be remade just because
its Kannada original 'Majestic' has become a super hit
in Karnataka. Screenplay and direction of the veteran
mass director Sagar is in a bad taste. Its very unfortunate
that even a humble and low-profile director like Sagar
has resorted to giving a statement that he would leave
the film industry if Charminar flops. Dialogues by Vinay
are over-dramatic. Two melody songs by Ghantadi Krishna
are impressive. Fights by B Srikanth are OK. G Srinivas
photography is average.
First half of the film is boring and the second half
is pathetic. The characterizations of the Prakash Raj
and Sakuntala lead to confusion. This film does not
offer anything but for a couple of well picturised melodious
songs. You can safely avoid watching this film.
