Rama Chandra Naidu (Dasari) is the upholder of justice for
the kondaveeti gadda, which consists of 5000 families.
He has a dutiful servant Satti (Mohan Babu) and a beautiful
maid Chitti (Soundarya). Naidu is a righteous leader who is
liked by everybody in the village. A theft of public money
occurs in the household of Naidu, which is done by Naidu's
brother on the insistence of his mother (Telangana Sakunthala).
Satti takes that theft on his behalf after realizing that
his master's mother is behind it. He does not want his master
to feel bad about master's mother.
pal of Satti comes to know about the real matter and comment
about it openly. Naidu vacates his position and makes Satti
as the leader. The mother of Naidu does not like this turn
around. She conspires with Nagamanamma (Jaya Chitra), who
was on exile for the past 35 years. Nagamanamma is on revenge
seeking mission. They want to separate Naidu and Satti by
creating misunderstandings. The entire second half revolves
around how the rift is created between Guru and Sishya.
Dasari's get up is good. But his dialogue delivery is not
up to the status of village head. He failed in making impression
with his emotions.
Babu: Mohan Babu is the only plus point of the film. The
occasional comedy involving scenes with Soundarya evoke some
humor. He did well with in the limitations of the character.
The first remark she gets in his film is her excess weight.
She did well as an actress. But she should also remember that
Telugu guys don't like obese actresses anymore. This film
will be her last film unless she loses some fat.
Bhanu: She did a vamp role. And she looks funny in most
of the scenes. She is actually a natural anchor. Hence, when
she puts some serious emotions on the screen, she looks awkward
and viewers start booing at her.
Story - Screenplay - Dialogues - Direction: The story
of this film is inspired by the relationship between Lora
Rama and Lord Anjaneya in Ramayana. Dasari is supposed to
be one of the most successful and inspirational director from
whom tens of current successful directors honed their skills.
After watching this film, one wonders if Dasari does knows
direction or if somebody else directed this film. Screenplay
and direction of the film is awful and pathetic. Dialogues
in the film are pathetic.
Music: Koti's music is cacophonic in this film. Only one
song is slightly better, which is inspired by a devotional
tune. The background-music and recording quality of the film
VSR Swamy's Photography of the film is pretty bad. They must
have used cheap stock to can the movie.
Krishnam Raju's editing is not up to the mark. There are lots
of abrupt jumps from one scene to another scene.
Kondaveeti Simhasanam movie was conceived 2 years back. They
stalled the movie half way through. Later on they replaced
Arun Kumar with Harsha Vardhan. This film has nothing to offer
but an occasional comedy by Mohan Babu. Watching 'Kondaveeti
Simhasanam' is like experiencing a 3-hour continuous torture.
Keep a safe distance from this film.
