Babu Rao (Naresh), Raju (Allari Naresh) and Shyam (Aditya
Om) are penniless people who have their own pathetic flashback
and all these guys are in desperate situation to earn money
by hook or crook. Shyam and Dhana Lakshmi (Ankita) have a
tiff regarding a job in a MNC bank. These desperados get a
unique opportunity of making money. Will they make it successfully
or not forms the climax!
Sr. Naresh played the role of Babu Rao. The get-up is heavily
inspired by that of Paresh Rawal in Hera Pheri. But sadly,
there is no spontaneity or timing in his action. It's pretty
artificial. The director has cast Kota initially for this
role. Kota would have done wonderful job. Allari Naresh impresses
us in parts. But he is bad in dances and pathos scenes. He
is very spontaneous in comedy and casual scenes. Aditya surprises
us with his good histrionics. His getup suited him to the
tee. His body language and gestures are pretty good. Ankita
looks really cute and homely with those spectacles.
The story of Siddiklal is an ageold one that defies logic
and reasoning. This story is just meant for fun.
- direction: The director Siva Nageswara Rao failed in
screenplay. Siva Nageswara Rao seems to have lost his comedy
timing the moment he left Varma's Company. The timing in comedy
and punch in dialogue delivery is missing though there are
many situations where one can exploit that angle. Direction
by Sivanageswara Rao is also not up to the mark.
Dialogues by Ravi Kolikapudi are good. But the one-liners
did not get elevated due to poor timing. One dialogue I particularly
liked is - "Rahasyam anedi daachivunchite manaki baanisa
laaga padi vuntundi. Vere vallaki chepte adi mana yajamaani
The song that comes as the backdrop to the titles is pretty
good. Remaining tunes are pretty average.
The movie looks very artificial except a few scenes where
the love of Naresh towards his mother is projected. The director
seems to have remade the body of 'Hera Pheri' and missed the
soul and spirit of it. Over all, comedy movie lovers may watch
it once and others can comfortably avoid this film. Don't
get tempted by looking at the cover
of the audiocassette.
