(Naveen) and Gowri (Sangeeta) are orphans and childhood
friends. Venu is very innocent. Gowri is his guardian
angel. They live together since their childhood. They
get married to each other once they enter 20's. Venu
works as a supervisor and Gowri is housewife. They have
a kid called Ramu. Slowly it is revealed that Venu is
suffering from a psychological disorder called schizophrenia,
in which a person could see imaginary things and believe
that they are real. Madhu (Anjana) enters into his life
as a girl who needs affection. The rest of the story
is all about why Madhu entered his life.
Naveen gave a commendable
performance as innocent man and the man suffering from
schizophrenia. This is the most challenging character
for Naveen in his entire career. Sangeeta
has done a terrific job as the housewife. Her character
in this film is probably the second best in her career
after Sivaputrudu film. Anjana
is good in looks, but mediocre in histrionics department.
Sudha has a very vital
role in this film where she unveils mystery. Baby
Abhinaya and Master Viswanath
Story idea of the film is brilliant, though it appears
like inspired by Hollywood flicks. We have a film like
A Beautiful Mind that is dealt with schizophrenia. The
climax twist of the film reminds us of the 'out-of-the-box-thinking'
climaxes of 6th Sense and The Others.
and direction: The first thing we observe in this
film is the passion with which the director told the
film. It needs guts and dedication to choose such subject
and try to stick to the subject without deviating for
commercial aspects. The direction of the film is good
in parts. Screenplay is OK. The narration is very slow.
departments: Music by Deepak Dev is OK. There are
a couple of good melodies. Cinematography by Krishna
is decent. Dialogues by Poosala are average. Suresh
Urs's editing is adequate. The producers should be commended
for accepting such a delicate storyline.
The first half of the film is neat. The flashback episode
is pretty aesthetic. The second half of the film is
not dealt well. The last 20 minutes of the film is good
during which the real twists come in. The ending of
the film is heart touching. The director should be given
a pat on his back for his passionate work. At the same
time, this film is not executed well enough to appeal
to an average moviegoer. A few scenes in this film are
not narrated in a convincing way. You may watch this
film at your leisure for the nice storyline it posses.
