tell a friend


Swapna (Rekha) comes from a traditional family and her father (Tanikella Bharani) hates the word 'love'. He raises his daughter with strict family values. Swapna is sent to Vizag city to complete her graduation. There she encounters Balu (Taaraka Rathnaa), a happy-go-lucky guy with a heart of gold. Though she has liking towards him, love is a big no for her, as she wants to stick to the promise she made to her parents.

When her father settles a match and sends her the photograph of her fiancée, the concerned friends of Balu changes the photograph and replaces it with that of Balu. Balu is not aware of this incident. Thinking that Balu is the guy selected by her parents, a happy Swapna starts loving him.

The rest of the film is dealt with the situation where Swapna's father comes to know about the truth and takes action in his style.


N Taaraka Rathnaa: Here are the positive and negative points of Taaraka Rathnaa as per his debut in 'Okato Number Kurraadu'

1. No stage fear
2. Flexibility in dances
3. Decent dialogue delivery
4. Tried cashing the lineage aspect by having scenes with NTR's statue and giving reference to babai.

Negative points:
1. Bad looking
2. Eyes are not impressive. (Eyes play an important role in expressing emotions more effectively)
3. No grace in dances.
4. Body language is not positive

Rekha: Rekha is not impressive in this film. She looks pretty lean and unglamorous though she is decent when it comes to performance.

Others: Sunil has disappointed comedy lovers. MS Narayana's cameo is good, as usual. Dharmavarapu Subramanyam's doctor role in the second half provides comic relief. Raghu Babu (son of Giri Babu) is slowly establishing himself as a character artist.

Technical Departments

Story: Story of the film is routine and predictable.

Screenplay: We see lots of love stories flooding the screens on weekly basis. When you are telling a routine story, you need to have a good screenplay to catch the attention of viewers so as to make them glued to the screen. If the screenplay of any love story were not exceptionally good, it would fail to satisfy the greed of movie lovers who watch similar types of movies every week.

Direction: Direction by A Kodandarami Reddy is decent. Being an experienced man at direction, the shot making and narration of the film turned out to be quite traditional.

Music: Keeravani has done amazing work as a music director with foot tapping tunes. Plus point of the film is going to be music. But the picturization of the songs needs to be exceptionally good to satiate the people who expected something more on screen after listening to the songs in tape recorder.

Dialogues: Dialogues of the film have blend of youth one-liners and traditional melodramatic dialogues.

Analysis: The film starts with an interesting incident, which establishes why Tanikella Bharini hates love, and it ends with another interesting incident that changes his mindset about love. But the scenes shown in between are not good enough make viewers excited. The film is an average one. We have to wait and see if the NTR lineage factor helps this average film to become a good success.
