Mahendra (Prakash Raj) is a multimillionaire and a famous industrialist businessman. Lahari (Soundarya) is his only daughter and lucky talisman. He is very fond of her and does anything that satisfies his daughter. Balaji (Chakri) is a newly joined car driver for the one of the tens of cars Lahari uses depending up on her mood.

During her traveling in Balari chauffeured car, she discovers that Balaji is a wonderful human being and eventually falls in love with him. Earlier she gets assurance from her lovable father that he would accept any guy, who is favored by Lahari as his son-in-law. At the same time, Mahendra also given assurance by Lahari that she would not mind marrying any guy her father selects.

By the time, Lahari selects Balaji, Mahendra too has got another NRI guy in his mind. Mahendra rejects Lahari's proposal about marrying Balaji. Balaji meets Mahendra and assures him that he does not love Lahari. Balaji says that he will make Lahari hate him by making her experience the life of middle class family.

The rest of the film is all about Balaji taking Lahari to his house and vexing her with his behavior so that Lahari runs back to her father.


Chakri: Chakri did his casual action in this film. His role has no scope for performance. He did well with in the limitations of his character.

Soundarya: Her histrionics are very good in this film. But Soundarya has become obese in this film. Her body dominated her body language. That's too she wore sleeveless dresses most of the film. She appeared very elder to Chakri.

Technical Departments:

Screenplay - Direction: SV Krishna Reddy seems to have become clueless from movie to movie. He is slowly loses the grip on the pulses of audiences since the last year. This film offers nothing to write home about. Though there are a few comedy scenes, SV Krishna Reddy could get the proper timing from the artists to get the scenes right.

Story - Dialogues: Story of the film has no stuff in it. Dialogues by Janardhan Maharshi are very normal. People miss Diwakar Babu dialogues in this film. Diwakar Babu used to be the right combination for SV Krishna Reddy for the comedy films.

Music: The music of the film is very ordinary with the typical SV Krishna Reddy's Dappu beat dominating. Only one song 'Ameerpet, Amberpet' stands out.

Analysis: This film has nothing to offer. It's a boring proposition right from the scene one. SV Krishna Reddy fails miserably to keep it up with the changing tastes of the Telugu audiences. This film is not worth watching, even if it available for free viewing on your cable TV.
