Vishnu (Manchu Vishnu Vardhan Babu) and Vaishnavi (Vedika)
are childhood pals and they like each other very much.
They are separated at the age of 6. Both of them are
living separately without contacting each other. After
a gap of 15 years, Vishnu finds Vaishnavi. He wanted
to win her love with his own merits instead of letting
her know that he is her childhood love. In the process
the misunderstandings crop up from Vaishnavi side.
is the daughter of Erra Naidu, a dreaded factionist
from Rayalaseema area. Erra Naidu fixes up the marriage
of Vaishnavi with some other guy. Vaishnavi then comes
to know that Vishnu is none but her childhood sweetheart.
The rest of the film is all about how the lovers unite
with the help of dear ones and against many hurdles.
Vishnu Vardhan Babu: Vishnu - the debut hero - surprised
everyone with his ease in histrionics. Nobody believes
that 'Vishnu' is his first film. He has got good height
and heavy body. But at the same time he sports lots
of tenderness in his face and sweetness in his smile.
He is extremely spontaneous. His dialogue delivery is
neat. He is highly confident on the screen. This film
produced a mass star to watch out in the days to come.
On the flip side, he should reduce some weight and develop
a six-pack body to compliment his amazing height and
excellent body language. He played it to the galleries,
especially the front benchers with his typical mannerisms.
Vishnu seems to have taken special interest in the fights
department. The masses would obsolutely love him for
the stunt sequences. If he gets a perfect script and
a good director, Vishnu would be the most powerful star
to reckon with in Telugu film industry.
Vedika (Shilpa Shivanand) looks like a poor copy of
Sakshi Sivanand. She is a negative point in this film.
She is not looking glamorous and her histrionic capabilities
are so so. Murali Mohan and Jaya Sudha sported the roles
of Vishnu's parents. Rajeev Kanakala did well though
he disappears in the first half itself. The villain
did well. Neetu Chandra is cute as the friend of Vishnu.
- direction: The taking of director Shaji Kailas
is good in parts. The way he introduced Vishnu and established
his nature is good. However, he could not make a tight
script to knit all the characters closer. The characters
of other artists in the film are under developed. The
scene in the climax where the marriage happening in
a moving train is shown in a real classic way by unfolding
it from a micro level to macro view.
Vandanam song of the film is extraordinary. This song
is shot in Tirupati with thousands of spectators. Ravoyi
Chandamana song is also good. Other songs have a tinge
of Hindi feel to it.
Dialogues: Paruchuri brothers did a decent job
in dialogues department. 'Naaku rende telusu. chirunavvuto
cheppatam. Teda vaste chirutapulilaa tiragabadatam'
worked out well. The dialogue 'action ni faction ni
kalipi vadabosina family lo puttaanu' is meant for the
fans of Mohan Babu. However, they should have avoided
references to mahabharata and Ramayana in dialogues.
departments: Camera work by Saravanan DF Tech is
worth an applause. Kanal Kannan did a great job in fights.
Producer Mohan Babu made every effort possible to give
his son Vishnu a kick start. This film launched Vishnu
as a hero to reckon with in the future.
Analysis: The first
half of the film is interesting. But there are too many
mass elements in the second half. The comedy quotient
in the film is less. The objective of this film is to
launch Vishnu as the mass star. And they succeeded in
it. Now its up to Manchu Vishnu Vardhan Babu to carefully
select good scripts and pave his way to the superstardom.
You may watch this film for Vishnu's performance.
