Meena (Laya) is a blind college going youngster. She is an
epitome of self-confidence and independent individual. She
overcomes the hurdle of blindness and lives like a normal
citizen with the display of her extraordinary grip over other
four senses. She meets Suresh by an accident and their friendship
starts growing. It took sometime to realize for Suresh that
Meena is a blind girl and his adulation towards her multiplies.
has a beautiful sister-in-law Dolly (Roopa). She is in deep
love with him and her evil-minded father Kota encourages his
daughter to marry Suresh as Suresh has lots of money inherited
from his ancestors. Meena completes her studies by getting
the state first rank and takes up the profession of lawyer
and eventually wins a case with her miraculous acumen.
(Murai Mohan), the noble father of motherless Meena, decides
to marry off his daughter with Suresh after coming to know
their love story. When Vasu goes to Suresh house with the
marriage proposal, he realizes that the mother-in-law of Suresh
is none but his divorced wife Kousalya (Lakshmi).
and Kousalya did have differences when they realized that
their girl baby is a blind one. Vasu is in favor of accepting
her and Kousalya wants to get rid of her daughter by putting
baby in an orphanage. On this issue, the couple takes the
divorce and Vasu takes the baby and raises her to the position
what Meena is today.
rest of the film is about how Meena, inspite of being a blind
girl, takes on a proxy war with her mother Kousalya and get
the entire family united. If you want to know how Meena did
manage this daunting task, you got to watch this beautifully
balanced good film on a silver screen.
Laya is the perfect fit for the role of Meena in this film.
She acted very well and makes us believe as if we are watching
a real blind girl. She did dub her voice for this film and
it suited her role very well, as her voice sounds innocent
and natural. She did not have make up for her character, which
became another asset for her realistic character appeal.
Kiran: Sai Kiran did well with in the limitations of his
character, as his character is more of supporting one rather
than the heroic one.
She is a new comer. And she did flash enough in the first
song of this film. In appearance, she resembles the heroine
Mohan: After a long gap, Murali Mohan has done a lengthy
and meaningful role as a supporting father of Meena.
& direction: Boyina Subba Rao, a director of old generation,
seems to have done his homework well before embarking into
directing this film and narration of the film is very gripping,
though the commercial touch in this film looks a little cliched.
He give the art touch to the film in the first half and made
sure that he balanced the film with necessary mass elements
to give the completeness to the film
Satyanand gave very good dialogues for this film. There is
one particular dialogue in this film, which makes a great
impact on the viewers in a scene in which Meena thanks her
father for helping her so much. Then replies "Prema
ante edutivaari nundi edo aasinchadam kaadu; prema ante eduti
vaariki emanna evvalanukovadam".
Hari Anumolu's camera work is a definite asset and it brings
up the level of quality of this film.
MM Srilekha, niece of M Keeravani, has done a decent job though
most of the tunes does sound familiar. Her background music
too is well taken care of.
D Rama Naidu, the man who is good at identifying the right
kind of stories and incorporating all masala elements made
sure that this film does not lack the commercial outlook though
it is meant to be an art film.
First half of the film is having art touch and second half
of the film has pucca commercial outlook. The comedy by Tanikella
in this film is pretty entertaining. Over all, this film is
recommended for all the educated humane Telugu people who
would like to get an insight into the world of blind. Even
otherwise, you will not get disappointed as it is stuffed
with necessary commercial ingredients.
