Story: Chandu (nag) is an NRI who has never been to India though he has a family comprising of grandfather (K Vishwanath) and others. He is very practical and believes in manipulating people for money. But a financial problem makes Chandu decide to come to India and take the money to solve it. In the journey, he meets Sandhya (Nayan) a girl who is service oriented and believes in human relations and kindness. A situation leads Chandu to do a drama at home and use Sandhya for that. What happens after that forms the rest of the story.
Presentation: The director has come up with a simple storyline and while the presentation was rich, the narrative was very gripping. The dialogues were well written. The script was above average and the screenplay was good. The background score was unwanted at time and two songs are worth listening. Cinematography was impressive. Editing was required in few places. Costumes were stylish and well designed while the art department was natural. Nagarjuna gave an easy performance and he still looks dashing. Nayantara is magical and she makes you fall in love with her. K Vishwanath was elegant and respectful. Meera Chopra was just okay. Brahmi was hilarious, M S Narayana was moderate, Ashish Vidyarthi was good. Raghu Babu, Kasi Viswanadh, Dharmavarapu, Sudha and others did their bit as required.
Conclusion: The combination of Nagarjuna and Dasaradh gave a hit film called Santosham many years ago and this again is another family entertainer. While the first half goes about with elements of comedy, romance, songs etc the second half gets into a bit of seriousness and melodrama. Still, the comedy and entertainment factor was not compromised. Most importantly, the film strikes on the theme of understanding the value of human relations. At the box office, this may not appeal to the masala audience but it will surely get very good response from the family and class audience.
Bharatstudent verdict: Classy family entertainer with good message, watch it
