tell a friend


Three friends (Rajendra Prasad, Sivaji and Jagapati Babu) vexed with their wives (Raasi, Sanghvi and Oorvasi respectively) decide to take a mass suicide. But they end up saving a businessman (Kota) who was also attempting suicide. These guys help the businessman in straightening his business and earn good salary to support their families. But they suffer with an after-marriage problem. Their wives does not allow them to have sex. Oorvasi is highly devotional and spends her days with vratams. Raasi is a busy lawyer and she is more dedicated to her work than her family life. Sanghvi is a hotshot TV actress and she is more interesting in making love to the camera than to her husband.

At this juncture, the businessman is confronted with another problem. His foreign returned daughters (Sony Raj, Swapna Madhuri and Sonali Joshi) are too fast for him to make them agree for an arranged marriage with the sons of his close pal. These guys throw an idea to businessmen that he should employ three good-looking guys and make his daughters fall in love with them. After that guys could ditch girls so that they get back to their dad to ask forgiveness and accept his proposal. Businessman asks these three friends to do the roles of lovers. These friends attract the girls and when its time to ditch them, they found it too discouraging as they were offered five-star luxuries by the businessman during that time.

What happens when these three greedy friends double cross and turn foes to businessman?


Heroes: Jagapati Babu did justice to his role of a wife-loving guy who cheats upon her. But his image of family man did not gel well with his characterization. And his characterization is not having clarity and appears confused. Rajendra Prasad is seen on big screen after a long time. He did pretty well. He should have given a lengthier role. Sivaji impressed in this film. He has pretty good comedy timing and his characterization and dialogues written to him make him more impressive than other two heroes.

Heroines: Having six heroines in a film and giving description for each and everybody performance is a difficult task. The wives got fairly good footage and girlfriends got very short roles. Its refreshing to Sanghvi on Telugu screen after a long gap. She is pretty slim.

Others: Kovai Sarala did well as a loyal maid to the wives. She evokes lots of humor. Brahmanandam appears in a small role.

Technical Departments

Story - screenplay - direction: Story of the film is good. Screenplay of the film is average. Taking of this film is slightly inspired by that of 'Kshemamga Velli Labhamga Randi'. Muppalaneni Siva tried his best to make this film a mass comedy one. He partly succeeded in it with the help of situational comedy and dialogues by Chintapally Ramana. But there should be more punch and force in comedy.

Other departments: Dialogues by Chintapally Ramana are good and are comedy oriented. Music by Koti is mediocre. All the songs, except one, are canned on at least three heroes and three heroines. Most of the lyrics are situational and gel well with scenes.

Analysis: This film starts off on an interesting note. First half of the film is okay. But the film lost its steam in second half. The climax is a clichéd one. But there is occasional situational comedy and few good comedy dialogues. You (comedy movie lovers) might watch this film once when you are bored with usual work.
