Raja is a tribal guy from Araku valley who studies in Vizag. He is a bright student. His aim is to become a gold medallist and become a role model for other tribal kids. He falls in love with Usha (Gajala), daughter of a millionaire (Giri Babu). She loves the honesty of Raja. But due to some miscommunication, she is informed that Raja is a son of a businessman. Later on when it is revealed that Raja is a tribal guy, Usha's heart is broken because Raja has kept her in the dark about this truth. The rest of the story is about how Raja convinces Gajala and also reaches his goal of excelling in studies.


Raja: Raja did a good job as a college student youth and lover boy in this film. However, his suave looks do not make us believe that he belongs to a tribal community. He is good at dances as well.

Gajala: Gajala is very pretty in this film. She not only danced extremely well but also acted well. She is extremely good at dances.

Others: Murali Mohan did an inspiring role of a 'Tribal Welfare Officer'. The 'gay' comedy track between AVS and Brahmanandam is vulgar. Srinivasa Reddy and others did as pals of hero. Sunil played another mass comedy role in this film.

Technical Departments:

Story - Screenplay - Direction: Singeetam Srinivasa Rao is known for his variety films like 'Vichitra Sodarulu', 'Michael Madana Kamaraju', 'Aditya369' and 'Pushpaka Vinamanm'. He has always had an element of excitement in his films. But in this film, there is no mark of 'Singeetam'. The taking of the film is old fashioned and the making of the film is old-formatted (like separate comedy tracks). The way he opened the opening shot of the film is interesting where he elevated a social problem. But after 10 minutes of starting the story, this film too falls prey to the bug of youth films. Singeetam could not handle the youth elements in this film in an entertaining way. There seems to be some kind of confusion towards the climax of the film, as it looked little unconvincing.

Dialogues: Dialogues by Sathyanand are OK. But we need to have quickies and one-liners with a punch in youth films. There is one dialogue on love and friendship in this film that stays in your heart - 'Sneham ivvalanukuntundi (friends tend to give things to others). Prema kavalaukuntundi. (Lovers expect something from each other)'

Music: Music by Koti is an asset to the film. His songs and background music is good. The picturization of the songs is pretty commercial.

Production: Dr. D Rama Naidu has film studios, post-production facilities and distribution outlets. Hence the cost of production becomes much cheaper. He made over 100 of films and scored as the only producer who produced more than 100 films in this world. Being an experienced producer, we definitely expect minimum guarantee movies if not path breaking films from his prestigious banner. He should select subjects that appeal the changing times than going for old formatted stories.

First half of the film is OK. Second half is little dull. Climax of the film is unconvincing. The normal comedy track of the film is OK (Sunil and friends of hero episode). Songs of the film are good. The success of the film depends on how the masses like this film.
