(Roma) is the daughter of a London-based millionaire
NRI Chakravarthy (Nagababu). She falls in love with
Erra Babu (Sivaji) when she visits her hometown Lankapally.
Chakravarthy wants to marry Pooja off to son of another
NRI billionaire. Chakravarthy tries to separate Pooja
and Errababu. The rest of the story is all about how
Erra Babu and Pooja unite against all odds.
Sivaji did well in
the mass role. His get-up is good and dialogue delivery
is also good. However, there is no consistency in the
dialect of his dialogues. Roma
is adequate as heroine. Nagababu
is OK. Sunil did the role
of hero sympathizer. Among the comedians Venu
Madhav's role is better.
- screenplay - direction: Story of the film is very
routine and is no different from the foreign-backdrop
love stories like Premayanamaha (USA) and Bhadradiramudu
(Germany). Screenplay of the film is unimpressive. Direction
is mediocre. The director could not succeed in maintaining
grip in narration. He could not bring out emotions in
scenes of separation and climax episode. The character
of Naga Babu should be the main pillar of the film to
sustain tug of war between hero and villain. But bad
characterization by the director killed the spirit of
departments: Dialogues by Nandyala Ravi are adequate.
But love-based mass dialogues written for Sivaji during
climax are ineffective. Photography by K Dattu is average.
Music by Koti is good. 'Enduko em tolisari' and
'Mallepoovula' are very melodious. The violin
bit played as thread between hero and heroine is impressive.
First half of the film is routine. Second half goes
awry. Sivaji who succeeded in the roles middle-class
husband in the past did not suit the image of mass lover
boy in search of his lady love. When we have NRIs producing
Telugu films, we expect a minimum quality in terms of
storyline, treatment and aesthetics. But Euro Andhra
Entertainments banner disappoints with such a mundane
film executed in mediocre style.
