Ashok (Sai Balaji) is a fun-loving college student who is very passionate about music. He is a gifted singer. He meets Gauri (Kanchi Kaul) and falls in love with her. But the difference in status separates them. They get united again and when everything was right, something unexpected happens that makes them live separately for a couple of years. Things are not same again when they meet each other. Gauri is engaged to Vinod (Manoj Bidwai). Meanwhile Suchitra (Swetha Agarwal), the next-door neighbor of Ashok falls in love with him. The rest of the story is all about how the lovers get united again!

Artists performance:

Main Leads: As a debutant Siva Balaji impresses crowds with his dances and histrionics. But again there is some Tamil-scene in his mannerisms. He looks average. Kanchi Kaul did a pretty matured and performance oriented role in this film and does justice. Swetha Agarwal is bubbly and gave a lively performance. Manoj Bidwai acted in a brief role. Though he is pretty suitable for character, his dialogue delivery is not lip-syncing with dubbing done to him. And facial expressions does not have Telugu nativity.

Other characters: Siva Reddy got a lengthy role as pal of hero. He impresses with his sardarji getup. Uttej also does well. Chandra Mohan has lot of footage in the film as emotionally suffering father of heroine. He is at his best, as usual. Vizag Prasad gets another role of nagging dad in this film.

Technical Departments:

Screenplay - direction: Suresh Krishna is always known for his style in taking. He excelled with the taking of the film again. The entire film looks rich and stylish. But unfortunately, Suresh Krishna failed to inject soul in to the film. The emotions did not get elevated due to unimaginative direction. It is sad to see such a prolific director like Suresh Krishna concentration more on style than the substance. His screenplay is very plain.

Dialogues: Posani Krishna Murali, who is known for his mass dialogues, has written dialogues for this love story. Most of the dialogues are good. But the blending of comedy is not sensible enough to tickle your humor bones.

Art: Artwork by Anand Sai is worth applause. The selection of locations and interiors is of good taste.

Music: The main asset of this film is soulful music by Anand Milind. The usage of different instruments and lively orchestration helped the music a lot. Even the background music is very different from the run-of-the-mill stuff we see in regular films. They arrest your attention with the music. The picturisation of songs is also very imaginative and Suresh Krishna should be commended for the same.

Production: The corporate production house 'Nimbus Motion Pictures' has maintained rich production values. But they should have concentrated more on the script on the film than the glossiness of the project.

This film has everything in right proportions - soulful music, stylish taking, exotic artwork, good choreography, neat dialogues. But what it lacks is soul and substance. This film has the hero and director from Chennai. The producers, music director and heroines are from north. Only Posani Krishna Murali is a Telugu guy in the main technical crew. Hence, there is bound to be nativity problem in the film and it showed up.
