Gemini (Venkatesh) is a rowdy in Vijayawada who maintains
a gang. Another gang is headed Ladda (Kalabhavan Mani). Gemini
happens to see a beautiful Marwadi girl called Manisha Natwarlal
and falls in love with her. He attends Night College so that
he could get an opportunity to talk to her. Both of them fall
in love. Viswanath (Murali) - a new commissioner of police
- takes the charge of Commissioner of Police for Vijayawada.
He brings Gemini and Ladda to the book and put them in a cell.
They convince police commissioner that they are changed men
need a chance to live like a citizen.
they change their profession of mafia? Would Manisha accept
Gemini as her beau even after coming to know about his real
colors? Watch this on a big screen to know yourself!
Venky looked ravishing with his Gemini getup. But there is
no substance in his characterization other than some artificial
stylishness. He did extremely well in few scenes where he
underplayed his emotions.
She looked pretty cute in her role of a Marwadi girl. She
suited the character very well. She got a solo song and a
considerable footage in the first half. But her presence in
the second half is very less.
Bhavan Mani: He did extremely well in aping the animals
in many scenes. And he is the only entertainer in this film
when it comes to the comedy. But he does not look like a Telugu
guy; hence the nativity aspect is missing.
roles: The national award-winning actor Murali did very
well as the Police Commissioner. Brahmanandam and Venu madhav
fail to evoke any response with their forced comedy. Mumtaz
is reserved for a song and few unnecessary scenes. Kota is
wasted in a mean and lean role.
Story of this film is routine and one would fail to understand
what has prompted the producers to remake a film with such
- direction: Saran's shot making ability is good. But
screenplay is bad and he failed to narrate the story in an
interesting style. He lost grip on proceedings in the second
half and made a mess out of it. He is creative in certain
scenes where he presented heroine in a lovable fashion.
Posani Krishna Murali tried penning some mass dialogues, but
in vain. There is one dialogue in this film that sounds atrocious
- Gemini to Ladda: 'nee praanalu teeyadaaniki paan chaalu.
Nenu paan tini vummu veste .. andulo padi kottukupothav'.
Music by RP Patnaik is good. He mixed the tune of 'Poolalo
Tene Prema' beautifully in background as the interlude
for the meetings between hero and heroine. Two songs - Gemini
Gemini and Nadaka
chooste vayyaram - got good response from the crowds.
Background score is also good.
Photography of the film is excellent. The way the movie is
shown on pseudo-35mm format till Venky enters scene is also
The film starts off on an interesting style and goes into
boring mode as the interval approaches. The second half of
the film is pathetic. Though the movie has the backdrop of
Vijayawada, the Telugu nativity is missing (names of hero
and villain as well). The film looks pretty artificial and
lacks soul. Over all it's a bad film. We hope Venkatesh would
stop depending on Tamil directors and start encouraging Telugu
