(Prabhu Deva) is the spoilt son of a millionaire (Mouli).
Fed up with the erring ways of Satti, the millionaire
puts a test to him. He asks Satti to survive in Vizag
as an independent man for 3 months without using the
name of his father. Satti lands up in Vizag with empty
pockets. The rest of the story is all about how he proves
himself to be a man of integrity and responsibility.
Deva is at ease in the role of a good hearted
innocent youngster. There are a couple of sparking steps
in the 1st song of the film. The way he performs in
the first mock fight of the film is worth an appreciation.
Laila over-did her role
and the dubbing by Savita Reddy suited her. Neha
is adequate. Prakash Raj
is fine as the cold-blooded villain. But seeing Ravi
Shankar dubbing his voice is annoying. Murali
is fine as upright person. Baby
Kalyani steals the show. Mouli
is appropriate as the worrying father and the millionaire
- screenplay - direction: The basic storyline is
interesting. However the execution of the story is bad.
The story meanders from one aspect to another aimlessly.
Screenplay of the film is shabby. Direction is not up
to the mark. Narration of the film is boring most of
departments: Music by Vidya Sagar is adequate. One
song of the film is good. But, that tune was already
used for Radhe Govinda song in Indra film. Photography
is average. Editing is just OK. Dialogues are mediocre.
Dubbing standards of the film are not adequate.
This film is a Telugu dubbing version of a Tamil film
titled Alli Thandha Vaanam that was released in 2001.
It does not make sense to dub an unappealing Tamil flick
into Telugu after a gap of 4 years. The first 15 minutes
of the film is good. The rest of the film is boring,
expect for occasional good moments by Prabhu Deva. On
a whole, it is a badly made film.
