- A Review
(Two and quarter on a scale of five)
Krishnam Raju, Radhika, Saakshi Sivanand and Ramya Krishna
Story & Dialogues: Paruchuri Brothers
Screenplay & Direction: Sarat
Producer: Dr. MS Reddy
(Balaiah) is a physical director in a local college. His mother
(Radhika) is a widow. The college in which Suryam work belongs
to an Industrialist called Sudarshan Rao (Charan Raj). Sudarshan
Rao is the brother-in-law of the business magnate Raja (Krishnam
Raju). Raja has two sons, Brahmaji and Ravi Babu.
Sudarshan Rao has a son, Srihari and a daughter, Saakshi.
Saakshi is a student in the college. Satyabhama (Ramya) works
as a junior PD (Physical Director) in the same college. Suryam
and Saakshi used to have regular fights (amir heroine
gareeb hero). After a few days they fall in love. Satyabhama
too loves Suryam.
When they visit 'Khajuraho' on a college tour, Satyabhama
implicates Suryam that he tried to rape her. After a couple
of scenes we come to know that Sudarshan Rao inducted Satyambhama
into the college to malign the image of Suryam so that his
daughter (Saakshi) hates Suryam in that process. Later on
we come to know that Satya is the daughter of a conspirator
Giribabu. She is asked to play the trick on Suryam in order
to save her ailing father. Sudarshan Rao agrees for the marriage
of Suryam and Sakshi. But he wants to know why the mother
of Suryam is appearing as widow even though her husband is
alive. Suryam caught unawares with this question, as he is
not aware that his father is alive.
Later on Suryam comes to know that Raja is his father. Suryam's
mother used to work as a maid in Raja's house. When Raja gets
involved in a murder of a thief, she takes up the responsibility
and gets ready to go to the jail. Moved by the unconditional
sacrifice done by his maid, Raja married his maid. Sudarshan
Rao, brother in law of Raja, makes sure that the maid is thrown
out of the house by doing manipulations. The maid comes out
of the house and raises her kid (Suryam). After knowing the
flashback, Suryam decides to go back to his father and win
his laurels and there by set the house right. You gotta watch
the film to know hoe Suryam accomplishes it.
Balaiah: Balaiah did well with in the boundaries his
character allows him to do.
Ramya and Saakshi: Both these heroines are taken to play
the roles of glamour dolls.
Story: The story is old and cliché.
Direction: This film is suffered by the pathetic and
Dialogues: There is no freshness or punch in the dialogue
written by Paruchuri brothers.
Music: Koti gave an insipid music for this film.
Songs: The first song 'Nee choopu balle balle' was taken
on a shady dance floor. You can observe that this song is shot
in a single set with single costume for the hero and the heroine
for the entire song. Balaiah did a few variety stpes in 'Kondapalli
Bomma' song. The much hyped 'Khajuraho' song suffers from a
Production: This film lacks quality both in terms of
print and production. Since they kept 'Sankrathi' as the deadline,
they did lot of compromizing in terms of post productions activities.
There by it resulted in bad editing, insipid re-recording, no
DTS, wrapping up of songs picturization.
this film gives you a feeling like you are watching a typical
commercial film of early 1980's. Times are changing and the
technology is advancing. New treatment is coming in terms
of direction. But this film is badly effected by the unimaginative
direction(Sarat), insipid dialogues and cliché story(Paruchuri
and uninspiring music(Koti).
Balaiah has to seriously rethink about doing unnecessary favourism
to Sarat and Koti. SA Raj Kumar, who was the original music
director for this film was unceremoniously dropped to accommodate
the Balaiah's favorite 'Koti'.
The other people who are equally responsible for this half
cooked film are the producers. They tried to cash the Balaiah's
image. Not even a single constructive effort by the producers
is shown on the screen.
Only saving grace of this film is the massive mass image of
Balaiah that drive the masses to this film. But once viewers
are seated in a theater all they experience a rude shock for
the way this film is made. We have to wait and see how the
people react in terms of box-office collections.
