Gudipoodi Srihari Review

It is an intelligent, subtle and funny film about a young man's life, shadowed by a decision he hardly knows he has made. Sekhar Suri is a new at direction.

But what he has turned out puts him among promising filmmakers. He has excellently coordinated with cinematographer Shyam K. Naidu in creating visual delights. The audio sounds unusual and the background score has a symphonic effect, heralding novelty accentuated by thoughtful DTS mixing. But what about the theme? That is where we find similarities with Ramgopal Varma's films, especially Kshana Kshanam.

Tarun (Tarun), an educated unemployed youth woos princess Keerti (Gazala), daughter of an erstwhile monarch. This 'Swayamvaram-2002' ends with Tarun kissing the princess, in response to her question on what marriage means to him. Naturally the palace guards are after this fleeing young man.

For Keerti, it is a matter of shame. For her mother Uma Dhanraj (Jayachitra), it is an opportunity to blame her husband Krishna Dhanraj (Raghunatha Reddy). The second part shows Tarun moving from place to place secure a job. He finds one in a bar, where he meets a girl (Asha Saini) who tries to seduce him, but he escapes only to run into Asha (Reema Sen), who's on the run for her own reasons. This chase drama occupies the entire second half. It turns out to be a long and eventful ride for this pair.

The director, who's also the storywriter, has a good grip on his subject but the content goes haywire. The expensive sets and backdrop undoubtedly arrests the attention, but artificially kills the spirit. Despite the absurdity of the character, Tarun performs with ease. The roles of the three girls are created more to provide fun than sense. All the character artistes are seasoned performers.
