Parasuram (Srihari) is an investigative journalist working
for Terror newspaper, which is run by his mentor figure Chandrakanth
(Nutan Prasad). BR (Sarath Saxena) is a famous and influential
industrialist who runs a mafia kingdom. In his first assignment
Parasuram cracks down on the brothel house, which is run in
a workingwoman's hostel, which is run by BR with the help
of Mental Anjaneyulu (Jaya Prakash).
a teasing incident Parasuram beats up the son of BR to pulp.
In another incident Parasuram exposes another scandal in BR's
pharmaceutical company and gets some solid evidence, which
is sufficient to put BR behind the bars. The irritated BR
kills Parasuram's brother and sister, the only relatives he
arrest BR and leaves him on bail in half an hour. Peeved by
the political - police nexus, Parasuram decides to leave the
pen and grab the gun. He gets hold of a gun and shoots Mental
Anjaneyulu without leaving any traces. Parasuram finishes
off the son of BR too. Vyjayanti (Sanghavi), who is working
as SI of police suspects that Parasuram is the culprit and
arrests him. The rest of the film deals with how Parasuram
gives a slip to cops to assassinate BR.
Sri Hari is at his best in this film. He improved his modulation
a lot. His did good bit of stunts with the help of stunt master
Vijay. He has three dance-based songs with Sanghvi too. He
exhibited his body and muscles liberally in this film.
Sanghavi did a role of sub inspector of Police. But her characterization
is not strong enough to make any impact. She is used more
to songs than action.
Screenplay - Direction: Direction of the film is good
in parts. Screenplay is gripping in first half. But in second
half, Mohan Gandhi lost control over the preceding of the
film. The director knows the mass pulse. Story of the film
is routine. But, it's the treatment given by Mohan Gandhi
that saved this film becoming a boring proposition.
Sri Lekha blissfully lifted bits from all the latest hits
of Telugu films and did the paste work. Either she is not
capable of doing original tunes or the producers are forcing
her to copy songs. Background score of the film is good.
Dialogues by Krishneswara Rao is an asset to the film. The
dialogues between Sreehari and Nutan Prasad and the dialogues
in court scene got applause from the crowds. He is even good
at writing comedy-oriented dialogues.
Fight master Vijay seems to know what people expect from Sreehari.
The stunts in this film are an extension to what Srihari has
done in 'Badrachalam'. Vijay is directing a film with Sri
Hari as hero now.
The first half of the film is very entertaining with the right
mix of action, comedy and sentiment. But the film takes the
same old beaten path in narration. Over all it's an average
flick, which will gel well the masses. A must see for Sri
Hari fans. Other people too can watch this film as time pass
if they have nothing else to do.
