Prudhvi (Sri Hari) is a sincere police officer and his family consists of a doting mother (Lakshmi) and dutiful wife (Vijaya Lakshmi). He gets transferred to Cherukuru, a notorious village where a landlord called Rayudu (Ranganath) runs a parallel government. Rayudu is none but the father of Prudhvi. Prudhvi's mother leaves Rayudu and stays along with her son, where as Rayudu is married to another woman (Siva Parvathy).

During the auction of arrack shops, Narayana (Sri Hari) - a look-alike - makes a surprise entry. He bids the arrack shops at highest price and procures them. Baffled Prudhvi questions her mother if he had any twin. Then she says that he used to have a twin, but he was killed 26 years back.

What exactly happened it the flash back? Is Narayana is really a twin of Prudhvi? What's Narayana's objective in life? Why did he appear suddenly from nowhere? To know the answers, you got to watch the movie!


Sri Hari: Sri Hari did a duel role in this film. Except for few scenes, he disappoints his fans to great extent. His character of police officer lacks the mass punch. He imitated Manoj Bajpai (from AKS) for the negative role of 'Narayana'. He looks very awkward in that get up. But he did extremely well in a scene where he meets his mother for the second time. Except for the extraordinary performance in that scene, Sri Hari did not show any good variety in performance.

Meghana and Vijaya Lakshmi: Vijaya Lakshmi has a little role to play and she enacted well as the dutiful Brahmin wife of police officer. Meghana has nothing to do in this film except for flashing her body.

Technical Departments

Story - screenplay - direction: P Vasu, a bigtime director from Tamil who has given stories to big hits like Gharana Mogudu, Muddula Mavaiah, Assembly Rowdy, Chanti etc failed miserably with this film. He did not even succeed in having viewer's attention in grip at least for 5 minutes in the film. There is no punch in characterization of heroes and no balance in the emotions of the film.

Music: Vandemataram came up with pathetic tunes in Pruthvi Narayana. Music is bad and picturization is worse (the unit went abroad to can a couple of songs).

Other departments: Editing of the film is very bad. Not even a single dialogue is worth remembering. Fights are not interesting enough. Camera work is average.

It's very sad that Sri Hari choose such a lousy subject to make a film on his own banner. First half of the film is uninteresting and second half is bad. It turns your spirits down even if you don't expect anything out of it. I consider you to be lucky to read this review. You can save your time and efforts unlike me.
