Krishna Murthy (Sivaji) is an atheist who travels to Annavaram on the severe insistence of his aunt (Rama Prabha). Sailaja (Laila) is an extremely religious girl who wants to go to USA for further studies. She is also traveling to Annavaram to get blessings of Lord Satyanarayana. Krishna Murthy and Sailaja happen to share the same Berth in the train. When they arrive at Annavaram, they are forced to share the same room as husband and wife (Mr. & Mrs Sailaja Krishna Murthy) due to the local room-allotment rules.

Due to certain incident, Sailaja and Krishna Murthy are separated in Annavaram. Each one of them do not know whereabouts of other person. Sailaja and Krishna Murthy realize that they had fallen in love. They start searching for each other in Hyderabad city. The rest of the story is all about how they find each other.

Artists Performance

Sivaji is very appropriate for the role of Krishna Murthy and performed his role with impressive ease. Laila did well as the leading lady, but the tenderness in her face and chirpiness in her smile seems to have faded away with time and age. Sony Raj is adequate as the TV anchor. Dharmavarapu Subramanyam walks away with honors in comedy department followed by Brahmanandam. Tanikella Bharani is excellent. Rama Prabha, Giri Babu, Raghu Babu, Rajesh and Duvvasi Mohan are adequate. Abhinaya Sri sizzles in an item song.

Technical Departments:

Story: Here comes the 4th film in the inspired series of Hollywood flick Serendipity. In the past, three films came with the similar storyline (Nee Manasu Naaku Telusu, Okariki Okaru and Love Today). This film also draws major inspiration from another Hollywood flick 'On the line' for certain episodes in the second half (especially billboard advertisement). Since the story has come in 3 Telugu films already in similar lines, the freshness is lost.

Screenplay - direction: It is a completely turn-around project for director Siva Nageswara Rao who specialized in kidnap-dramas like Money and Sisindri. The mark of Siva Nageswara Rao is completely absent in this film. However, he succeeded partly in getting the feelings of the main leads in a compassionate way. Handling of second half is a tough job and the director handled it in a decent way. Screenplay and direction of this film is sufficient.

Dialogues: Dialogues by Dr. Srinath and Nivas are adequate. The comedy dialogues by Dharmavarapu Subramanyam - though bit raw - went well with the crowds. The dialogues written for emotional scenes oozes certain philosophy: Ex:- 'Maata ni ardham chesukovataniki bhasha ravali. Kaani mounam ardham chesukovataniki manasunte chalu'

Music: Music by Rohit Raj is an asset and most of the songs in this film are melodies. Background music is also good. This debutant music director is a good future prospect for Telugu film industry. How ever, the last two songs of this film acted as like speed breakers to the film's flow.

Other Departments: JayaKrishna Gummadi's photography is good. Editing by Gowtam Raju is fair. Production values by Atluri Purna Chandra Rao are decent.

Analysis: First half of the film is decent and second half is a bit slow. The plus points of the film are Sivaji, music and decent handling of subject. The minus point is the oft repeated story. There are two factors that would work well for this film compared to there other films (NMNT, Okariki Okaru and Love Today)

1. If the other films cater to the youth segment, this film targets the middle class family crowds with its title and narration.
2. This film is reportedly made on a very low budget (below 1.5 crores). It is easy to recover this money if the film is decent enough.

Due to the above 2 factors, this film has all chances to become a decent money earner. And thanks to the producer Atluri Purna Chandra Rao for keeping the budget way below the market standards and producing it with decent production values. You may watch it once.
