Gudipoodi Srihari Review

Yet another film is all set to join the bandwagon of love stories. Produced by A.R. Madesh, this successful Tamil film is now dubbed into Telugu for the enjoyment of our audience. Three-fourths of the film is a lighter-vein drama that revolves around a music teacher, an A.C.P., their daughter and her lover, apart from a hoard of students.

Most of the story happens in a college campus leading to a love story involving Anjaili (Jaya Ray) and Aravind (Prasant). Though Anjali's parents (the cop and the music teacher) fall apart and live separately due to ego problems, her marriage becomes the bone of convention between them. Aravind and the A.C.P. are great pals.

Unaware of the fact that Anjali is his friend's daughter, Aravind takes on himself the onus of finding a groom for her, and also that of reuniting the warring couple.

Meanwhile, the heroine's mother, Sarada (Suhasini), is adamant about getting her married to London-based Ganesh as she feels that her daughter 's lover has no proper education or means of sustenance.

But for the last part of the sentimental drama, and the cunning role of Sarada who plays foul in her daughter's life, for her won reasons, there is no sustainable element of drama. The entire screenplay is filled with college pranks, songs and daces. The dialogue and treatment, at times, is offending. Quite a bit of it appeared to have been censored.

For Prashant, who has good fan-following here, the role he plays is a simple one and he performs with ease. Though the music is good, and supports the love story well, the Telugu lyrics are unintelligible. Jaya shows promise especially in the last part, Suhashini gets totally a different role that her fans never got to see her in - that of a cunning woman. Mumtaz plays a dual role - of a college girl and a dancer.

The film, on the whole, is enjoyable.
