Ravi (Ravi Teja) runs his father's textile franchise in Mumbai and Preethi (Namitha) studies in Mumbai. They meet each other and fall in love. Preethi's father (Tanikella Bharani) is the Commissioner of Police in Hyderabad. And he strongly hates love marriages because his elder daughter set herself afire when her love marriage failed.

Ravi and Preethi returns to Hyderabad. They get hold of Sachin (Brahmanandam) - a marriage broker - and make him send the photos of these two people across to their parents. Their parents agree to the arranged marriage of Ravi and Preethi. At this point of time, the police commissioner comes to know that Ravi and Preethi cheated him to win their love.

The rest of the story is all about how the police commissioner reacts and how Ravi convinces him.

Artists Performence

Ravi Teja: Ravi Teja is good as usual and his comedy timing is impeccable. However, for a storyline like this, a youth hero would have been a better choice.

Namitha: She is definitely a scene-stealer of this film in the first half. She did well and is very glamorous too. She made sure that she leaves a good 2-inches of space below her navel unclothed whenever she wore jeans pants to the delight of the male audiences.

Others: Brahmanadam generated good comedy though his role of marriage broker. Tanikella Bharani is impressive as the father of Namitha. Sobhan (director of Bobby) made his debut as an actor and he also did a goodjob. His accent and comedy timing is good. Chandra Mohan and Sudha did the roles of Ravi Teja's parents in this film.

Technical Departments:

Story - screenplay - direction: The story of this film is routine. But the director Yogi tried to inject a curiosity factor by placing the scene of Ravi Teja and Namitha getting injured in the accident in the beginning of the film and pushed back the love story and arranged marriage attempt scenes to the flashback. The direction of the film is average. The father hiding his daughter in women's jail and hero entering jail to get his ladylove back look unconvincing. Screenplay of the film is sluggish in the first half. However its good in second half before the accident scene.

Dialogues: Dialogues of this film are decent. There are good occasional oneliners and comedy bits. There is no nativity shown in dialogues when the entire story of the first half took place in Mumbai. The hero and other characters would be conversing in pure Telugu even when they barge in shops and eating places. He should have shown variation in dialogues for the Mumbai backdrop.

Music: Tunes of the film are impressive. But these tunes give you the feeling of déjà vu as you find almost all the tunes resemble old songs. Background music is OK. Picturisation and choreography of the songs is good.

Cinematography: Photography of the film is good.

First half of the film is little slow. The film is good in the first half of the second half. However, the climax scene of Ravi Teja convincing Tanikella Bharani about their love is unconvincing. Music (songs) is an asset to this film. Over all it's an average flick. All the guys who like Namitha can't afford to miss this film, though!
