Charan (Tarun) is a fun loving college-going guy in Vizag. He meets Sanjana (Anitha) in an interesting style. They start off their relationship with quarreling and slowly they fall in love with each other. Sanjana leaves to Hyderabad after the graduation is over. Charan also leaves to Hyderbad in search of Sanjana, as he did not get any phone calls or mails from Sanjana.

On his way to Hyderabad, he meets an NRI called Boney (Rajiv Kanakala), who comes to India in search of a bride. After reaching Hyderabad, Charan accidentally meets another girl called Geeta (Sridevi), who works in All India Radio and some how settles in her house as guest. One day, he spots Sanjana who ridicules his love and says that she pretended love to him only to take revenge on him for the pranks he played on her during college time. Then she hands him over her wedding card. And the bridegroom turns out to be Boney.

The rest of the film revolves around these 4 characters - Charan, Boney, Sanjana and Geetanjali. The climax is all about who gets whom.

Artists Performence

Tarun: This character is a lighter-vein one for Tarun and he did it with extreme ease. He has got good comedy timing and this film gave him a chance to exhibit it.

Heroines: Anitha played the role of an arrogant girl. She looks pretty glamorous in this film. Sunita dubbed her voice. Sridevi got a role of a sweet and innocent girl. She looks pretty sensible in that character. Savita Reddy dubbed for Sridevi.

Others: Rajiv Kanakala is given a very good role in this film for which he has done justice. Ali did the role of collegemate of Tarun. His comedy strip as a blind beggar in train is hilarious. Giri Babu and Delhi Rajeswari played the role of supportive parents to Tarun. Brahmanandam did another comedy cameo. Sunil played the typical role of a showman. After a long gap, character artists like Sarath Babu and Misro made their appearances.

Technical Departments:

Story: Fist half of the film runs on a single thread with a twist in the interval. The second half is a triangular love story with a convincing climax. But the story of the film is predictable.

Screenplay - Dialogues: Screenplay of the film is OK. Dialogues are good. There are some good one-liners in the film. The dialogue in which Tarun explains about the 'match of intelligence between married couples' (this dialogue is probably written by Trivikram Srinivas) justified the entire plot of the film.

Direction: For a debutant, the direction by Konda is satisfactory. He narrated the movie in a manner where you would not get bored anywhere.

Music: RP Patnaik has given good melodies for this film. The songs appear impressive on the screen with visuals than listening to the jukebox. 'I Love You', 'Emantave O Manasa' and 'Ku ku ku' songs are the most impressive ones. Neha Dhupia song (Jumbai Bai Bai) attracts the masses.

Cinematography: Photography by S Gopal Reddy is impressive. He has chosen good locations for canning the songs.

It's a neat film that is narrated in a slow pace. The film picks up its mood after 'I love you' (3rd one) song. But in the second half, the intentions of hero are not shown to the audiences till the climax of the film, which kept the audiences guessing about whom hero loves. It's a minimum guarantee film that has chances to become a hit with aggressive promotion.
