Chanti (Ravi Teja) is the son of a head constable (Kota). Chanti is a guy with carefree attitude. He is beaten by a rival gang at college and was rescued by a beautiful girl (Rakshita). She pays his hospital bills and donates her blood. She is gone from the hospital by the time Chanti became conscious. Chanti starts loving her for her good-heartedness though he did not see her. That girl's name is Suchitra. She later turns out to be the daughter of the city police commissioner Vipra Narayana (Prakash Raj).

The fun starts now with how Chanti falls in love with Suchitra and gives sleepless nights to Vipra Narayana. Will Chanti get to marry Suchitra in the end or will Vipra Narayana succeed in the are climax are the questions to be answered. To know more about it, watch this 'Idiot' on big screen!


Ravi Teja: Ravi Teja's strength is his spontaneity in action (behavioral action without any drama) and excellent dialogue delivery with a tinge of accent. In Idiot, Poori Jagannath used all the talent of Ravi Teja in right direction to the maximum result. Ravi Teja is simply the best in this film. He delivered his best performance so far in 'Manasichi Choodu' and with this film he outsmarted his earlier performance. The 'care-a-damn' attitude of the hero role got elevated and has the shades of heroism performed by Chiranjeevi in Gang Leader and Pawan Kalyan in Badri.

Rakshita: She is cute and suited the role to the tee. In some of the angles, she resembles Ramu's find Anthra Mali. The voice that dubbed her role is also sweet.

Prakash Raj: Prakash Raj performed the role of obsessive father and villain of Idiot. He did well. His introduction scene is pretty good.

Others: Ali's cameo in the second half is very good. Jeeva's comedy-oriented SI role is good. After a long gap, Kota got a full-length role that projects the two-panged facets of a sincere Head constable and helpless middle-class father. Kota did very well.

Technical Departments

Poori Jagannath: Story - screenplay - direction - dialogues - production: Idoit is a Poori Jagannath's film all the way. He seems to be getting better and better with the films. He excelled in all five departments he donned. Story of the film is a routine one, but the treatment is excellent. Screenplay of the film is tight. Poori Jagannath made sure that the comedy in the film is injected into the character of hero. Hero does the 90% of comedy in this film. At the same time, director made sure that the comedy of hero would not dilute the seriousness of hero's love towards heroine. The most important aspect of the film is dialogue department. Most of the dialogues uttered by Ravi Teja are rib-tickling. Poori Jagannath also excelled in the department of production, as the entire film looks very rich.

Music: Chakri's music is not so good when you listen to the album. But on the screen, songs are better with good choreography and nice picturization. Background music is good by Chakri. Only Poori Jagannath seems to know how extract good background music from Chakri. His background scores are not impressive in other films.

Photography: Shyam K Naidu excelled in camera work with this film. The entire film has the right color combination and perfect shades to match the mood of the scenes.

Positive Points:

1. Poori Jagannath's screenplay and dialogues
2. Ravi Teja's terrific performance
3. Shyam K Naidu's cool photography

Negative Points:

1. Routine storyline.

Idiot film is not an idiotic film. It's just an attempt to get back the negative-titles like Donga, Killer, Kiratakudu etc to the glory. The first half of the film is cool and second half is also equally good. This film has got class and mass elements in equal proportions. The confrontation scenes between Prakash Raj and Ravi Teja are excellent. Idiot is a much-deserved break for Poori Jagannath as the producer. Idiot is a good film to watch for everybody.
