and humiliates Raghava when he proposes to her.
sister advises him that love is more powerful than factionist
life. She wants Raghava to go to Hyderabad and impress Anjali
with his good deeds and then win her heart.
Lakshma Reddy shifts his base to Hyderabad to take revenge
on Raghava. The rest of the movie deals about how Anjali and
Raghava are united and how Raghava deserts factionist life.
Suresh did not suit the role of the film. He does not have
strong screen presence to enact a role of factionist. His
Rayalaseema diction is poor and artificial. He tends to shift
his diction from Rayalaseema to Andhra in a few scenes.
sri: The heroine of the film is not impressive in the
aspects of beauty and performance.
Kota gave a good performance. But the characterization is
not powerful. The director seems to have confused about weather
to make this character a dangerous one or comedy one.
Screenplay - Direction: Y Nageswara Rao seems to have
got inspired looking at Seema Subjects and he tried to imitate
the past films. But he failed to make any impact with the
script. Its very lose and uninspiring.
Dialogues: Dialogues by V Satish are stale and predictable.
He could not master the lingo of Rayalaseema to give the right
kind of kick with the dialogues.
Shashi Preetam's music lacks the punch. All the songs are
Raghava is a badly made film with uninspiring story and direction.
The forced comedy in the film with the induction of Brahmanandam,
MS Narayana, Mallikharjun, Ali and GV does not serve any purpose.
The character of Kota is diluted a comedy one from the main
villain character. This film can be avoided.
