The audiences had high expectations on K Viswanath, because he is directing a film after a long gap.This film is a clean family oriented with a perfect mix of dance and Classical music.
The story begins with Indu (manjari), who is fond of music.Her family has an unusual combination- her father (vizag prasad) is Telugu, mother is Malayali, her uncles (sudarshan and ashok kumar) are married to ladies from Chennai and Kolkata. She falls in love with Chakri (Allari Naresh) who sings lovely folk songs. He falls in love with Indu and she reciprocates his feelings. However, the arrival of a rich man (Sarath Babu) brings a twist in the story and also the profession of Chakri comes as a surprise. What happens after that forms the rest of the story.
The character of Allari Naresh was very haphazard; he has done justice to his role.
Manjari Phadnis got a meaty role in this film and she has got a scope to show her dancing skills and performance in the movie.
Sharath Babu was elegant; the trio of Vizag Prasad, Ashok Kumar and Sudarshan gave many funny moments.
The storyline chosen by the director is good as it has several delicate issues in our regular family lives. Director presentation was good, the narrative was very poor. Allari Naresh did not get a chance to play a key role in the film and remained a second fiddle to the heroine. Background score was excellent but only one song has been able to appeal. Cinematography was marvelous. Editing was okay. Costumes were apt and the art department was perfect. Dance choreography was very nice. Entertainment was poor.
The first half was just okay; the second half was not good. The film is not for the Youth, Over all film that could be watched once because it is from legendary Director Viswanath .
