Shankar (Pawan Kalyan) is an orphan. He is a smalltime
ruffian who makes his living by cheating people. On
his way to Hyderabad, he accidentally meets Gowri (Meera
Jasmine). Both of them are forced to travel together.
A few more incidents make them good friends. Then Shankar
realizes that Gowri is a girl who ran away from her
house. By then, they start having feelings for each
goon Kumara Swamy (Asish Vidyardhi) wants to marry Gowri
forcibly, which is why she runs away from the home.
Kumara Swamy finds out Gowri and takes her back to the
house. Kumara Swamy is extremely superstitious and he
heavily depends on the astrology of Parabrahma Swamy
(Brahmanandam). Shankar blackmails Parabrahma Swamy
and joins the wedding house as the wedding planner along
with Ali and two other buddies. The rest of the story
is all about how Shankar tricks Kumara Swamy so that
he could marry Gowri.
Kalyan: Pawan Kalyan single handedly managed
the entire show. He concentrated on comedy aspect a
lot as 80% of his part in the film is comedy. Pawan
Kalyan effectively used his typical Srikakulam slang
at times. Pawan Kalyan looks pretty eccentric and maverick
with a headband and with a body language of extreme
recklessness. This kind of recklessness was mastered
by Johnny Depp in 'Pirates of Caribbean: The curse of
the black pearl'. After the 3rd song is over, Pawan
Kalyan's body language changes into normal one. He dances
with lot of vigor. Pawan Kalyan is exceptionally hilarious
in the following three scenes -
Pawan Kalyan treating his Scorpio vehicle (which he
fondly calls as Bangaram) like a close relative and
mourning as if a close relative is dead and then cursing
the people who caused the damage.
2. The scene in which Pawan Kalyan creates rift between
villain (Asish Vidyardhi) and villain's friend (Sayaji
3. The scene in which he imitates different heroes.
Meera Jasmine looks demure
in this film and did pretty well. And her costumes make
her look little obese. She dubbed her voice. Though
sounds fresh, her dubbing is artificial. Asish
Vidyardhi is OK for the role of bakra
villain. Rajan P Dev did
a character of an insane man. Venu
Madhav, Sunil, Brahmanandam,
Ali and Jyothi
are adequate. Kota Srinivasa Rao
did a small role.
Story of the film is wafer thin. The basic storyline
has the shades of Hindi film 'Dilwale Dulhania Lejayenge'.
The first half is about hero and heroine (both on run)
getting to know each other well and falling in love.
Second half is about how tactfully hero steals heroine
from the clutches of the bakra groom.
- direction: It is extremely important for any filmmaker
to narrate the film with good screenplay when there
is no strong story. Screenplay of this film is incoherent.
Direction of the film is inconsistent. The director
tried to narrate the wafer-thin story in lighter vein
by using humor. But, the director failed to create the
much needed feel of falling in love between the lead
pair. Narration of the film is slow.
Songs of the film are an asset. Background music is
Le le le: This song is an inspirational song that
revolts against child labor, eve teasing and dirty politics.
Pawan Kalyan did Michael Jackson style of steps (pounding
walk). Pawan wore a single costume throughout the song.
2. Killi Killi: Killi song is a mass song. But
Pawan Kalyan tried to have some punk steps to suit his
maverick characterization in the first half. Natanya
Singh played the dhaba belle.
3. Chiguraku Chatu: This song is picturized in
New Zealand. This melodious song strikes the chord with
the public. Picturization of the song is also good.
4. Emantaro: Generally we do expect this song
to be shot in outdoors by exploring the tender love
feelings between lead pair. But this song is canned
in house set with guests all around.
5. Chitti Nadumu: This song is simply terrific
in terms of every aspect. The placement is good. Choreography
is good. Theme is good. Lyrics are good. More over,
this song would be liked by both masses and classes
equally well. The rap 'comon comon' created furor in
the theater with excited movie lovers expressing their
joy. Pawan Kalyan danced with gay abandon in this song.
6. Chilakamma Mukkuki: This is a situational
song which comes up when Pawan Kalyan makes groom (villain)
a bakra while dancing with bride.
departments: Dialogues of the film are pretty casual
and sometimes rub you in the wrong way. Camerawork by
Chota K Naidu is good. But there is a bit of inconsistency
with the lighting of the film (probably it has to do
something related to post-production activities like
color grading). Editing is OK. Choreography by Raju
Sundaram, Brinda and Harish Pai is good. The stunts
in this are handled by three masters - Stun Siva, Amin
Ghani & Vijay. The climax fight in which Pawan Kalyan
treats a log literally like a cricket bat to beat the
goons black and blue is interesting, though prolonged
a bit. Production values by Anjana productions are lavish.
First half of the film suffers with poor narration and
odd situations (especially series of events that happen
when hero and heroine travel on the road). Second half
is better as the locations and situations become familiar.
The positive points of the film are comedy by Pawan
Kalyan and songs. The main drawback of the film is that
there is not enough substance in subject and the treatment
of the film, which would make the comedy by Pawan Kalyan
justified to the theme/script of the film. The romance
between hero and heroine should have been handled in
a much better manner. This film also lacks a powerful
villain. It is a must watch film for all Pawan Kalyan
fans as they can see him doing exceptionally talented
comedy. The fate of the film would depend on how general
audience and masses like the film.
