Madhu (Venu) is the owner of a huge beauty clinic. He is a bigtime casanova who does not believe in love and marriage. He has two girls - Sirisha (Laya) and Kalyani (Kalyani) falling for him and pestering him to love them. The climax of the film involves Madhu marrying one of these girls.

Artists Performance
This role is very typical one for Venu and he did well. Laya looks pretty glamorous in this film, though there is no individuality and sensibility to her character. Kalyani looks pretty cute. The only breather in this film is given by comedy artist Kondavalasa Lakshmana Rao who got a role that utters 'neeku telusu … naaku telusu'. Telangana Sakunta did a role that is exactly reverse to what she has been portraying so far, i.e. role of a meek and dutiful wife of Kondavalasa.

Technical Departments:

Story: There is no story in the film except for the last 30 minutes. Ironically there is a dialogue in the film by Giri Babu goes like 'Story jarapavammaa', which means that please fasten the story. The same dialogue applies for the pace in the entire first half of the film. There is no story at all! The most unconvincing aspect is the 'bullet episode' in the flashback of Kalyani.

Screenplay - direction: SV Krishna Reddy - who delivered a hit in the form of 'Pellam Voorelithe' - failed this time with the film 'Pellamtho Panenti..'. The screenplay of the film is dull. The comedy timing did not workout in the entire first half. The direction is clichéd.

Other departments: Dialogues by Diwakar Babu are partly good, but could not elevate the film because of the lack of comedy timing by the director. There is one suggestive dialogue that goes like 'ataniki experience vundi kada' (Kalyani tells this dialogue why she love hero even though he is a casanova). Music by SV Krihsna Reddy is routine. He recycled his own tunes. The choreography for Kalyani's solo song is impressive. Photography by C Ram Prasad is good.

First half of the film is boring. Second half is slightly better. There is no 'feel' in the film as it lacks soul. There are occasional good comedy scenes in the second half. Except those few comedy scenes, this film offers nothing. The title 'Pellamtho Panenti' is a misnomer and it has no link to the basic storyline of the film. We have to wait and see how this film would work out at Box office!
