(Rajendra Prasad) and Satya (Raasi) are middleclass
couple with a kid. Satya's brother promises a bounty
of Rs. 1 crore if this couple gives birth to a girl.
Satya approaches a renowned Swamiji and seeks his blessings.
Then swamiji advices her that they should start telling
lies to everybody by making the old proverb 'abaddalu
chebite aadapillalu pudataru' come true. As the
situation had it, Harischandra lands up marrying Meena
(Gurlin Chopra). He gets Meena to his house and introduces
Satya as a servant maid. The rest of the film is all
about how Harischandra realizes the bitterness of being
husband of two wives.
another cool performance from Rajendra
Prasad. He did well in each and every department.
Mrs. Raasi has become too
obese to play the heroine role. The pair of Rajendra
Prasad and Raasi is repeated for the 3rd time here after
Sandade Sandadi and Srirama Chandrulu.
Gurlin Chopra enters the
film towards interval. She is very hot in the last but
one song where she shed her cloths liberally. She resembles
Manisha Koirala in few profiles. Venu
Madhav role is good and provided good comedy.
Jeeva's 'matchbox' comedy
is partly good. The comedy by Sunil
and Brahmanandam did not
click in this film. Jayalalitha
should stop dubbing her own voice. Her dubbing is very
artificial. Rama Prabha
and Surya are adequate.
Krishna Bhagavan looked
out of place in his character.
As the title suggests, this story is about the perils
of bigamy. It has certain resemblance to SV Krishna
Reddy's Subhalagnam and EVV's Intlo Illalu
Vantitlo Priyuralu. But the characterizations were
altered as per the convenience.
- direction: Screenplay and direction by Kongarapi
Venkata Ramana is mediocre. Though there are many scenes
that provide room to elevate comedy, the director could
not get the timing right. When a comedy film is made,
the entire scenes should be dealt in lighter vein. But
the director tried to insert sentimental scenes which
dilute the comical aspect.
departments: Two songs (last two songs) scored by
Vandemataram Srinivasa are good. Camerawork by Sarath
is average. The lighting scheme is not proper. This
film is made on a shoestring budget and it shows up
screen in terms of locations, sets and camerawork. Dialogues
by Marudhuri Raja are OK. There are couple of dialogues
that targets SSR
Madhav: Kantichooputho kaadu, molathaadutho champuta
Raasi: Kantichooputho kaadu, rokalibandatho champuta.
First half of the film is average. Second half is disappointing.
The climax is prolonged unnecessarily. The plus point
of the film is Rajendra Prasad. The minus points are
inept direction and inane screenplay. However there
are couple of scenes that are hilarious (comedy episode
by Venu Madhav, the episode where RP and co are subjected
to electric shock). Over all, this film is a disappointment
as it satisfies neither ladies (agony of two wives sharing
a husband) nor comedy lovers (comedy is not good). We
have to wait and see if the image of Rajendra Prasad
attracts crowds to the theaters.
