and Subhash are neighbors, who are friends from childhood.
They move around very closely. Subhash is a freak-out guy
and Janaki cares for him a lot. Chakri is Subhash elder brother,
who is very responsible and on the way to fulfill his father’s
dream of becoming a kickboxing champion.
There is an age long rivalry between Model School and Govt.
School in that town. Chakri, Subhash and Janaki belong to
Govt. School. Rich and spoilt teenage boppers dominate the
Model School. Bhupender is the gang leader of Model school
and is hunted by Modern gals.
Janaki loves Subhash. But Subhash has his eyes set on glossy
modern gals. Bhupendar defeats Chakri, in the latest kick
box annual competition. Meantime, Subhash hit off well with
Lucky, as new entrant into Model school, by posing that he
is born rich by borrowing latest cars from Janaki Father’s
garage. Subhash used to lend lot of money from Janaki for
his expenses. Before the valentine day, Subhash asks Janaki
for Rs 10,000/- saying that he will present a diamond ring
to his valentine. Janaki presumes her to be the valentine
of Subhash and get the shock of her life when he presents
that ring to Lucky in front of her.
Janaki decides to leave that town and go to her granny’s place
and do her study for the rest of life. Janaki father (Chandra
Mohan) realizes that Janaki gave RS 10,000/- to Subhash. That
was the last straw for him as he was very skeptical about
Subhash behavior. Chandramohan give a oral thrashing to Subhash
dad in public. Immediately Lucky come to know about the rags
story of Subhash and thrashes him in front of his father.
Being an insulted and harassed father he is, he sends Subhash
out of his house. Janaki comes to know about the things that
are happening to Subhash. So she cancels her trip and tries
to comfort Subhash and explains him that what he was doing
is bad. And makes him realize the importance of being a responsible
person. As Subhash decides to mend his ways, things do turn
out against him.
Meantime, Subhash father settles the match for Chakri with
Chakri’s longtime flame. As Chakri was going to get his brother
home for his engagement, he was beaten up by Bhupendar and
other model school guys. Chakri is so badly injured that he
needs the bed rest for 3 months. In this process his father’s
irritation towards Subhash multiplies.
Subhash approaches the guru of chakri to learn the art of
kickboxing. Janaki father settles an abroad match for Janaki
and forces her to ignore Subhash, which she relents. As Subhash
hones the finer point’s of martial arts, Janaki is left with
an unavoidable option of having poison as she is sandwiched
between father’s love and love for Subhash.
Now stage is set for kickboxing. Will Janaki take poison?
Will she get engaged to the abroad guy? How does Subhash manage
to win the kickboxing championship as well as good will of
his father. What is the ending etc. etc. … you must watch
this electrifying movie on big screen with DTS stuff.
Pawan Kalyan: Pawan is in his elements. He acted extremely
well in all the scenes, though some of the smiling stuff has
the shades of Toli Prema. He danced very well. Oh man! This
guy will beat Chiru in dances. Lot of hero image is projected
in this movie for Pawan for which he did justice.
Preeti: This gal looks so cute. She did her job as an
unconditional lover exceptionally well. She makes the viewers
feel for her all the time. She did decent acting and has the
DR Aditi; Though there is no scope for acting for this
role, she did well with in the limitations.
Achuth: He did his role of a responsible brother with
ease. Got applause by viewers in many scenes.
Director: PA Arun Prasad is the new whiz kid of cinema
with Thammudu. He belongs to the league of Jayant and Krishna

well in showing the human values and feelings of each and every

Each scene is fresh and new.
Producer: Burugapalli sivarama Krishna gave another classic
movie after ‘Premante idera’.

No1: ‘College Blues’: This western part of this lullaby
is pictured on Model School guys. Folk part of it is pictured
on Govt. College guys. This lullaby is a short and sensual stuff.
Song No2: ‘Made in Andhra’: This song is about Pawan
showing modern collegiate his power. Superb steps by Pawan.
Song No3: ‘Pedavi daatani’: This classic song is pictured
in the Alps of Switzerland. There is no dance in this song.
There are a few sweet things in this song that tickles the viewer’s
heart. This song is about Preeti imagining about sharing her
sweet nothings with Pawan.
Song No4: ‘Edola Vundi’: This song comes when Pawan
got just introduced to DR Aditi. A sensual song.
Song No5: ‘Vayyari Bhama’: This song is shot in Switzerland
railway station with Pawan donning coolie dress. The funniest
part of this song is that 5 blond guys would be folk dancing
as sidekicks to Pawan wearing a Lungi. By listening to this
song one do expect more in picturization.
Song No6: ‘Kalakalalu’: Pawan imagining himself singing
an engagement song for his brother. There is family dance in
this as well as few exceptionally excellent dancing steps by
Song No7: ‘Traveling Soldier’: A song which was pictured
with such an extraordinary skill that one has to sit on the
edge of chair to see those martial feats of Pawan. Very inspirational
stuff it is.
half is full freak out. Second half grabs the viewers and make
them follow every scene closely. Story is thin, but the treatment
is cool. There is freshness in each and every scene. Even when
he don a role of brat in first half, Pawan captures the hearts
of viewers with his lighter vein comedy. Highlight of this film
is the climax (kickboxing). There is deafening applause from
the viewers for this climax. You will really get confused about
where you are getting those sounds, from sound box or from viewers.
There are two more cute lullabies in this movie, which were
enjoyed thoroughly by viewers. This film showcases the multitalented
acting prowess of Pawan. Debutante director P A Prasad is bound
to go places.
