Kalyana Ramudu (Venu) is a wedding planner, whose functions include erecting kalyana mandapam, decorating the marriage house, arranging musicians and cooking. During one such wedding function, the marriage is called off since the bridegroom elopes with a girl whom he is love with. Incidentally the bride is a dumb girl. Hence none of the relatives of that girl come forward to marry her. Kalyana Ramudu jumps into the scene and does the crisis management by asking his doctor brother (Raja Ravindra) to tie knot. Kalyana Ramudu falls in love with bride's sister Kalyani (Nikita). She also loves him but pretends herself to be in love with Rajesh, a pop singer who is also her uncle's son. Later on Rajesh reveals to Kalyana Ramudu that Kalyani is in love with Kalyana Ramudu.

When everything is going alright, the sister of Kalyani dies. Later an astrologer says to Kalyani's father that there is a curse of God on the vamsam of Kalyana Ramudu and all the women in their dynasty dies at an young age. After listening to this, Kalyani's father refuses to marry off his daughter to Kalyana Ramudu. Rest of the story is all about how all ends well!

Artists Performence

Venu: The characterization of Kalyana Ramudu suits the body language of Venu. He did it in his own style.

Nikita: She looked completely homely and beautiful in this film. She wore all traditional Indian dresses which added to her looks. She completely justified her role with a sensible portrayal.

Prabhu Deva: Prabhu Deva did a positive character in this film. He has a couple of songs for himself and entertained the crowds with his cool steps.

Others: Nazar did a pretty good character of heroines father. Suman played a role of character article and the brother of hero. Character artist Sana graduated from vadina characters to mother character in this film. MS Narayana's comedy as the drunkard pahilwan is a highlight of the film. After a long gap, Sunil got a full length comedy role that entertained everybody. Allu Rama Lingaiah did the role of hero's grand father. Devi Charan did a one minute comedy role in this film.

Technical Departments:

Story: Story by Jenny is a simple one with lots of twists involved towards the climax.

Screenplay - direction: Screenplay and taking of the director in the first half is very entertaining. However, he could not justify too many twists in the second half with a convincing reason. There is no justification for the scene in which nobody tries to prevent fire when Kalyani's sister accidentally sets herself afire. This particular scene comes as the main twist of the story and its not narrated in a convincing way. However, it's a neat work by G Ram Prasad with lots of situational comedy thrown in to it.

Music: Mani Sharma has provided music with his typical rich orchestraization. 4 of the five songs in this film are marriage songs. The theme chosen for 'Premante' song is pretty innovative. The background score is also good.

Dialogues: Marudhuri Raja has done pretty good work for this film. His pun-oriented dialogues are entertaining. There are some good and thought-provoking dialogues on love as well. Here are a couple of dialogues

1. Preminche Hakku Andariki Vuntundi - Kaani Premanu Ponde Adrustam Kondarike Vuntundi
2. Nammakam Leni Prema, Prema Leni Pelli Ekkuvakalam Nilabadavu.

First half of the film is very entertaining with lots of situational comedy thrown into it. The second half has become little slow with lots of twists inserted towards climax. The entire film is shown as a flashback with elder Venu narrating it to a few young lads. A good thing about this film is that there are no negative character and no stunts. Over all it's a minimum guarantee film that has fair chances to become a box office success. You can watch this film for the entertainment in first half.
