Sivanna (Arjun) and Lakshmi (Swati) are siblings. Their parents die when they were kids. Sivanna took the entire responsibility of raising his sister. Lakshmi falls in love with Ajay (Srinath). Sivanna marry off his sister to Ajay. But Ajay's family member is against to this marriage. When Ajay leaves abroad for an assignment, family of Ajay plots a conspiracy on Lakshmi and accuses her of having an extramarital affair with the car driver.

Ajay believes in his mother and starts abusing Lakshmi. When Sivanna comes to know about it, he offers to take her back to his home. But she refuses. The rest of the film is all about how Sivanna finds out evidence to prove the innocence of his sister.

Artists Performance

Arjun has two facets to his screen image. One is action orientation and the second one is his ability to make the sentimental scene flourish. He is very suitable for the role of the brother. Meena is good as the girl who is after hero all the time. Her performance is matured in the second half of the film. Swati is good as the sister of the hero. Srinath is OK. The comedy track enacted by Shakeela, Sudhakar and Dharmavarapu Subramanyam is in the cheap taste.

Technical Departments:

Story: The title of the film says it all. It is about brother calling her sister back after she is being subjected to humiliation. The basic storyline is an age old one. This story is supposed to be inspired a real-life incident.

Screenplay - direction: Screenplay of the film is average. Kodi Rama Krishna is expert at handling sentimental stories. In This film also he inserted all ingredients to attract female audiences. But he over did the sentiment scenes most of the times. He leaves the character of Anant Raj in the middle and there is no logical ending

Other departments: Music by SA Raj Kumar is adequate. A couple of melodies helped in establishing the mood. The fast tracks are not impressive though. Dialogues by Pusala are OK. Cinematography by Giri is good. The production values of this film are decent.

Analysis: This film is a remake of Kannada blockbuster. It's a heavy duty sentiment film, which is over done at most of the times. First half of the film is average. The second half is gripping in few scenes. The scenes in which Meena gives a fitting reply in the house of hero's sister got tremendous response. The director should have avoided the vulgar comedy track of Shakeela & Sudhakar. This film has high drama and heavy sentiment quotient. This film would not appeal to urbane crowds and youth. Would this sentiment be enough to drag the ladies - habituated to never-ending sob TV serials - to the theaters? We have to wait and watch!
