Sreeram (Navdeep) is a Merc-driving rich youngster. Sindhu (Poonam) is a middle-class girl with a nagging step mother and a meek father. Sreeram is impressed by Sindhu at the first sight. He gets acquainted with her and helps her out with her problems. In the process, she misunderstands him. The rest of the film is all about how the destiny guides this couple into nuptial knot on the same day they met.

Artists Performance

Navdeep is pretty handsome and he emoted with utmost zeal and enthusiasm. He has got a nice diction and a flexible body. Debutant heroine Poonam is first-rate with South Indian looks. Among the comedians Krishna Bhagavan takes the top honor as a person craving for publicity through TV channels. Sunil also impresses with his Balu pants and Pawan Kalyan's imitation. Tanikella Bharani plays a vital role as heroine's uncle. Rallapally essayed the role of an astrologer who changes the course of the story. Ravi Prakash is good. Gay comedy involving Raghubabu is bit repulsive.

Technical Departments:

Story - Screenplay - dialogues - direction: The basic point of destiny guiding a couple who just met into wedlock within a few hours is interesting. But the director tried to inject more comedy element (though is pretty hilarious in a couple of tracks) than what is necessary. The basic point of destiny playing a role in matching the couple is also not strongly established. Venkat Kuchipudi definitely has knack for good picturization of songs and the right timing for comedy sequences. Certain satirical dialogues pointing Prasads Multiplex, Maichael Jackson, Daivagna Sharma, TV channels etc are wonderful. A few continuity issues should have been taken care of.

Music: Music by Swaraj deserves special commendation. All the songs in this film are good in their own way. Wonderful lyrics by Sirivennela add more strength to the music. My personal favorite song in terms of picturization and placement is 'Neeke Nuvvu' rendered by Shreya Ghoshal. The songs shot in Sikkim are a treat to eyes.

Other departments: The main highlight of this film is excellent cinematography by Sameer K Reddy. Fights by Ram Lakshman are adequate though the first bike act is inspired by Dhoom film. Choreography by Shankar is good (especially Taka Chuku song). Editing is adequate. Production values by Abhisatvika Creations are good.

Analysis: First half of the film is adequate with ample comedy. The second half which deals with the main story was not handled well. Climax of the film is very predictable. The plus points of the film are lead pair, photography, music and comedy by Krishna Bhagawan and Sunil. The major drawback of the film is insufficient establishment of the main thread of the film.
