this slow paced different love story if you want to know the
Tarun did this tailor made role with an ease of perfectionist.
In this film too his character gets lot of sympathy just like
his character in Nuvve Kavali.
The newcomer is in her elements in this film. This natural
beauty is the perfect fit for the role. She has very few dialogues
in this film and carried the most of her action through expressions.
She is a misfit in this film. A girl with josh is needed for
this character and Preethi made a mess out of it.
Screenplay & direction: Bala Sekharan, the man who
directed the Tamil version of Pawan Kalyan's Suswagatham,
did try to repeat the success by weaving another one sided
love story. The flash back in the first-half is narrated though
the series of leaflets from the memoirs of the Hero. He could
have made the script a crisp one. Because of the nature of
story, this film went on a slow pace. He could have made the
film little shorter. Nonetheless, he made sure that this film
too have all the clean ingredients the youth is looking for.
Ramana Chintalapalli, who was in hot seat during the days
of 'Toli Prema' penned dialogues for this film. There is one
particular eye-opening dialogue in this film, which goes on
like this - "Manishiki Manishiki rayabaaraalu vundochukaani
- Manaduki Manasuki raayabaaraalu undakoodadu'. There is another
full-length dialogue for Venu Madhav that evokes lot of laugh.
Songs of this film work like the typical slow poisoning by
SA Raj Kumar. 'Manasuna Vunnadi' song is the highlight of
the film, which represents the state of heart of the secretly
admiring heroine. There is one particular catchy guitar bit
in this film that comes repeatedly, which comes in the starting
of the song 'Manasuna Vunnadi'.
RB Chowdary, like any other seasoned successful producer,
knows the pulse of the viewers and according the select the
scripts and directors.
This film started with a low note as an average film. Courtesy

publicity, a good film can never fail. Over the next few weeks,
it made an unexpected turnaround to become a good hit, as
the collection sour up week after week. If you are patient
enough to watch a little slow paced film, this movie is a
