(Tarun) is a happy-go-lucky youngster. His family is
in big financial trouble as they need around Rs. 10
lakhs. Hari happens to save a factionist Durga Devi
(Lakshmi) from her rival gang. Durga Devi gives him
some money as a token of gratitude. She offers to give
the entire amount he needs if he successfully brings
back her daughter Chandana (Nauhid) from Swiss. Chandana
prefers to stay in Swiss than her faction-ridden homeland.
Hari travels to Swiss, falls in love with Chandana and
also makes sure that Chandana also falls in love with
him. They travel back to India. Once he hands over Chandana
to Durga Devi, Hari realizes that Durga Devi cheated
him. Durga Devi wants to take revenge on her faction
rival and also Chandana's father (Raj Kumar) by getting
her son married to Chandana. The rest of the story is
about how Hari saves Chandana from the clutches of Durga
Devi and teaches Durga a lesson.
Its nice to see Tarun on
screen after a gap of almost a year. He did extremely
well as the casual and shrewd teenager. At the same
time, he is very tender in emotional scenes. Tarun tried
mss steps in last song of this film. Heroine Nauhid
is charismatic in looks department and is adequate in
histrionics aspect. There is ample skin show from heroine
in this film. Lakshmi lived
up to her reputation of fine villainess. Ranganath
is adequate. Ali is entertaining
as cabbie of Swiss. MS Narayana
as comic cop is ineffective.
- screenplay - direction: Basic storyline by Deenaraj
is good. But development of storyline into 2 and half
hour narrative is not satisfactory. The screenplay is
good in the beginning of the film, but went out of hand
in the second half. Direction of the film is good in
parts. The aspect of Tarun feeling the presence of heroine
in few scenes is good. But Jayant failed to transfer
the emotions on the screen into the hearts of audiences.
Music is an asset to the film. All songs are good, though
most of the tunes give you a déjà vu feeling.
Marriage song is entertaining. Rain song is sensuous.
And the final mass song is the icing on the cake though
the placement is bad. Background music is also good.
departments: Dialogues by Paruchuri brothers are
satisfactory. Photography by Jawahar Reddy is good.
Artwork by Ashok is OK. Fights by Stun Siva are regular.
However, the tactics used by Tarun to ward off evil
guys are interesting. Production values of new banner
Suryadaya are excellent.
Analysis: The beginning of the
film is good. The love episodes in Swiss are not interesting
enough. Too many twists and little substance make the
second half a let down. The plus points are Tarun and
music. The minus points are contrived screenplay in
second half and lack of emotional appeal. Over all,
it is a disappointing film.
