Story of this film is so complicated that it cannot
be written in brief. Any how here is an effort to condense
it into few words
Prakash (Jagapati Babu) is a chronic bachelor. He hates
love and girls. He has a nemesis called Bhavani (Ramya
Krishna). He wins a court case against Bhavani that
entitles him of a fortune left by his deceased father.
Bhavani vows to see the end of Surya Prakash.
Prakash's residence is adjacent to a Girls Hostel. Surya
Prakash secretly sponsors a girl called Sandhya (Nikita),
who is a step sister of Surya Prakash. But Sandhya is
unaware of this fact. Sree Kumar (Venu), who is a brother-in-law
of Surya Prakash, is a Casanova. He falls in love with
Sandhya at the very first sight. Satya Bhama (Sangeeta)
is also an inmate in the Girls Hostel. She falls in
love with Surya Prakash. Later it is revealed that Satya
Bhama is a younger sister of Bhavani.
rest of the story deals with how all these relationships
fall in place and lead to a logical conclusion.
Babu is OK as the protagonist, but not effective enough
carry the entire film on his shoulders. Ramya Krishna
got an important role though she did not have good footage.
Her characterization has the shades of Nilambari character
in Rajnikant's Narasimha film. Venu did another casual
role. Nikita looks pretty homely wearing those spectacles.
Sangeeta is good at dancing. Dharmavarapu Subramanyam
generates some comedy. Devan is good as the villain.
Bhanu Chandar did two roles in this film and he is OK.
MS Narayana is good as naughty thief.
The story is a complicated one with lots of relationships
entangled in between the prime characters. This storyline
is dominated by brother-sister relationship and misunderstanding
that caused feud between two families.
- direction: Ram Prasad G who directed successful
films like 'Chiru Navvuto' and 'Kalyana Ramudu' in the
past could not repeat the magic as he could not capture
soul of the original. He failed in narrating the story
in a simple manner. Screenplay of the film is average.
Direction of the film is so so.
departments: The music in the film is not up to
the mark. SA Raj Kumar has given insipid music. Dialogues
are not impressive. Though this film is presented as
a comedy flick, there is no humor or punch in dialogues.
Cinematography is average. Production values are mediocre.
First half of the film is mediocre. Second half is uncomfortable
with too many twists like a TV serial. 'Kushikushigaa'
is a remake of Malayalam blockbuster 'Chronic Bachelor'
which was later become a blockbuster 'Engal Anna' in
Tamil. The director could able to reestablish the characters,
but failed in recreating the soul of the original. This
film proves that it is not advisable to go after every
hit in the other language and remake them just because
they did well in other states. The state of mind of
the people in this state definitely needs some fresh
stories and sensible treatment.
