(Sayaji Shinde) is the Senator of New York state. Bhanu
(Ileana) is his only daughter. Devadasu (Ram) is a poor
kid raised in slum areas. Bhanu comes to India to learn
classical dance in Hyderabad. That is where Devadasu
meets Bhanu. The inevitable thing happens. Katamraju
comes to know about their love and he takes back his
daughter to USA. The rest of the story is all about
how Devadasu goes to USA and brings his lady love back.
Debutant actor Ram is impressive. He does not have any
camera consciousness and did whatever he is supposed
to unabashedly. He has got lots of ease in histrionics.
His mannerisms and portrayal of character is bit similar
to that of Pawan Kalyan. Ram has flexible body that
has right rhythm for dancing. He did well in action
Ileana makes a cool debut.
She is good at histrionics and has a fabulous body any
woman would love to possess. She has great legs and
nice physique. Sayaji Shinde
is splendid in the role of heroines father. He
has shown good comedy timing while expressing his frustration.
Rama Prabha has a full
length role for which she has done justice. MS
Narayanas comedy is partly good. Shriya
gave a special appearance as herself. YVS
Chowdary also gave a special appearance as himself.
- screenplay - direction: Story of the film is a
typical poor boy and rich girl formula oriented one.
But you can see the influences of several films in the
characterizations and twists. YVS Chowdarys strength
has always been the picturization of songs. He made
sure that there are plenty of them in this film. All
songs are well-picturized. Among these songs Bangaram,
Oka Nestam, Nuvvantene Istam, Telusa Telusa, Adigadigo
are excellently shot in various backdrops. Adigi Adagaleka
and Kshaminchu are melodious ones with emotional quotient.
Screenplay of the film is bit contrived in the first
half and is better in second half. There is the touch
of YVS Chowdary in mass orientation of heros character.
Departments: Music by Chakri is good and energetic.
Cinematography by Bharani K Dharan is an asset. Visuals
of the film are very good with vibrant colors. Dialogues
by Chintapally Ramana are adequate. Digital Intermediate
was done for certain parts in the film. The production
values of Bommarillu banner are extraordinary.
The film starts with a nice song in the titles backdrop
followed by an impressive establishment of characters
with a voiceover of Prakash Raj. Positive points of
the film are vibrant picturization of songs, lead pair
(Ram & Ileana) and richness. On the flip side the
length of the film should have been less and the screenplay
in the first half should have been taken care of. YVS
has brought lot of style to the film. On a whole, you
may watch this film for beautifully picturized songs!
