A feature length inside joke.
This film relieves me from pointing out the sameness of our mainstream writing. Running for just around 2 hours this is Puri’s first successful experiment. The film cast the actors with their own names and is set in the typecast Telugu cine reality (a Puri reality), where Prakash Raj is a Don, Ravi Teja is the glorious vagabond who does something and the female lead can be anything that allows her to show the legs.
Starting in Vaikunttam, the clichéd orphan tale of Ravi Teja and Ileane D’Cruz are what the Lord Vishnu (Brahmanandam) gifs his wife (Kovai Sarla). The film’s central experiment is the possibility of what could have changed if Panileni Pappaya (M S Narayana) hadn’t thrown the banana peel on the road.
Being the inside joke of an industry which is not known for great story telling of late, even the improvised meta writing often resorts to slapping people and solving most issues with badly shot fights.
This is the way it should be I guess; an ode to all the fighters who are a very prominent part of the industry. Puri’s films probably have quite an impact on the fighters of the Bangkok industry too, opening employment avenues.
For those of us who believe that even The Gods watch Telugu films and the audio release functions.
