(Ravi Teja) is a wayward youth in Vizag who roams around
with friends all the time. One day he - along with his
three buddies - accidentally gets selected in police
selections. Venky and his friends embark on a journey
from Vizag to Hyderabad to join police academy for the
training. He falls in love with a co-passenger Sravani
(Sneha) aboard the train. Srvani refuses the instant
proposal of Venky. He also picks up a row in a state
of inebriation with Sravani's father and another girl
and threatens them that he would kill them. And surprisingly,
Sravani's father and other girl found dead on their
berths on the next day morning. After realizing that
they would be blamed for a murder committed by somebody
else, Venky and his gang slips off from the train and
join the police training academy.
they realize that their boss Yogendra Sharma (Ashutosh
Rana) is responsible for the murders in the train. Why
does Yogendra want to kill Sravani and her father is
the mysterious question that would be solved by Venky.
Rest of the story is all about how Venky protects Sravani
and how he brings Yogendra Sharma to the book.
Teja: Ravi Teja is in his elements as long as he
played the role of mischievous brat. His comedy is very
good in the first half. His antics with Siddanthi and
the way he curses himself in front of the mirror is
hilarious. His dances are mass oriented in this film
and the movements are little awkward at times.
Sneha is cute and homely in heroine's role. But she
did not have much active role to play in the film. Her
mass steps in songs are artificial (especially steps
in last song composed by Ashok Raj).
Ashutosh Rana is fair as the villain. Chitram Seenu
and Srinivasa Reddy are OK. Mallikharjuna Rao as Siddanti
Jagadamba Chowdary is good. Dharmavarapu Subramanyam
provided some entertainment. Brahmanandam and Venu Madhav
provided good train comedy. Tanikella Bharani and Delhi
Rajeswari played parents of hero. Raasi did an item
song. Ravi Teja's brother Bharat played a vital role.
This story is relatively new for the formula ridden
Telugu films that are being churned out these days.
This kind of storyline needs to be told in a very crisp
manner so that it keeps the audiences guessing all the
- direction: Screenplay of the film is OK. Direction
is good in parts. The narration of the film is very
slow. The first half does not have any story till the
interval point. The suspense in second half is broken
too early. However, the ability of Seenu Vytla to create
hilarious comedy is in tact.
Music by Devi Sri Prasad is good. But the placement
of songs and the lead scenes are not good enough to
pump in the right mood into the minds of audience. Choreography
is OK. First song (Silakemo Seetapuram) and the last
song (Gongura Thota kaada) have similar steps. Camera
keeps on vibrating for the song 'o manasa'.
departments: Dialogues by Kona Venkat are good in
first half where there is impressive comedy punch. Cinematography
by Prasad Murella is impressive. Artwork by Narayana
Reddy is OK. Fights by A Vijay are good. Production
values by Atluri Purnacahndra Rao are also good.
First half of the film has entertainment though there
is no story. And second half has crime element. The
movie falls flat in the second half as the suspense
point is revealed too soon. Seek and hide game in latter
part of second half is not interesting. The climax fight
is picturized in front of Raj Bhavan (Residence of AP
Governor) and no policeman is seen at the gate to stop
the nuisance. And one wonders why Ravi Teja is wearing
light beard even during the time of police training.
The main strengths of the film are Ravi Teja and entertainment
in 1st half. We have to wait and see if Ravi Teja can
pull enough crowds with his image and reputation to
make this film a hit.
The train-love seems to be catching up Telugu film industry
these days. This is the fourth film where hero and heroine
meet and fall in love in a train. The earlier 3 films
were Okariki Okaru, Nee Manasu Naaku Telusu and Varsham.
