(Ravi Teja) walks down his memory lane as he distributes
wedding cards to each and every friend he has grown
up playing with. Seenu is a lucky guy to have got a
girlfriend for each passing phase of his life.
befriends Vimala (Mallika) in his boyhood stage and
studies with her till 10th class in Korukonda. His family
moves to Kerala after completing his 10th class and
he falls in love with another girl Lathika (Gopika).
Then he reaches Hyderabad in search of a job. There
he finds Divya (Bhumika Chawla) who inspires him to
work hard and grow in life. And ultimately he marries
a girl - Sandhya (Kanika) - of his parent's choice.
Teja looks pretty different and soft in this
film. He mellowed down his reckless mannerisms to give
a tender feel to his character. Master
Bharat did well as the 10th class studying male
lead. Mallika is appropriate
as rustic girl with her dusky looks and innocent conduct.
Gopika takes the main cherry
in this film with a complete performance oriented role.
She did extremely well. Bhumika
Chawla is at home as the inspiring lady who sets
her life as an example. Sunil
is entertaining with his variety mustache and tight
dressing. Venu Madhav sparks
in a couple of scenes. Kanika
(who made her debut in Telugu with a screen name Sravanthi
in Ottesi Chebutunna) did a guest role as the bride
of the hero. Dharmavarapu Subramanyam's
characterization is embarrassing as he keeps on farting
by making big sounds. Paruchuri
Venkateswara Rao is good as the sympathetic father.
Prakash Raj did a small
- screenplay - direction: Story of the film is a
simple thread that is made up of events that takes place
in everybody's life. To narrate such a story, the director
needs to bring out the much-needed feel with a crystal
clear narration. The narration of the film is pathetically
slow. Director failed to make audience involve and identify
themselves with the hero's character. Screenplay of
the film is not tight.
Music by MM Keeravani is an asset. The best song in
the film is the small bit of 'idi kaada LOVE' that is
repeated twice. The film starts with 'Gurtukostunnayi'
song, which is inter-spread all over the 1st episode
(boyhood stage). 'Mounamgane' song is an inspirational
song canned on Bhumika Chawla. The duet 'Manmadhude'
on Ravi Teja and Gopika is sensuous. Background music
is also good, but assumes artistic texture most of the
Cinematography by Sameer Reddy is worth commending.
The way he captured Korukonda with wide lenses is appealing.
He captured the greenery and backwaters of Kerala very
well. However, squeezing the frames of Bhumika with
a blue saturation at various times in 3rd episode is
departments: Dialogues by Paruchuri brothers are
adequate. Artwork by Ashok is fair. Editing by KV Krishna
Reddy is not crisp. Production values of 'Naa Autograph'
First half of the film is average. Second half is boring.
When such a tender story is narrated, the director should
make sure that he transfers the mood of the film into
the minds of viewers. But the director failed in creating
the positive 'feel' for the film. Positive points of
the film are artists' performance (Ravi Teja, Mallika,
Gopika & Bhumika), photography and music. The negative
points are narration and screenplay. This film is one
example of remakes where the body is imported successfully
without the soul. The lack of commercial elements might
hamper the box office prospects of the film badly.
