A regular tale, the story begins in the backdrop of a hospital when a Brahmin lady delivers a dead baby and the old woman in her family replaces the dead infant with another baby. That baby is delivered by another lady who actually gives birth to twins. Now, one boy grows up as Chari (ntr) with the Brahmin family while the other grows up as Narasimha (ntr again). Both Chari and Narasimha are like Saint and Satan. However, the time comes when Chari gets to realize the presence of a twin brother and he comes from the small place of his to the city in search of him. There is also a romance angle in the form of Chandrakala (Nayantara) for Chari along with the city girl (sheela) for Narasimha. What happens from there forms the rest of the story.
The director did not delve much into the storyline but he managed the show with some rich presentation and a paced narrative. The dialogues were hilarious, the script was average but the screenplay was good. Background score was neat and three songs were good. Cinematography was top notch, editing was crisp, costumes could have been better, art department was creative. NTR was fabulous in his act as the Brahmin, he has proved that he is the best when it comes to dance, he was out of the world. Nayantara was glamorous as usual but the brownie points have been taken away by Sheela, she was simply hot. Brahmanandam was nice and he could have done better, M S Narayana was apt, Raghu Babu was effective, Tanikella was hilarious, Rajyalakshmi was regular, Kondavalasa was interesting, the others didn’t have much to offer.
The director has come up with a routine plot and he has believed in a typical formula for a commercial entertainer, no risks were taken. While the first half is a bit mild and goes about in low pace, the momentum picks up in the second half and it could have been much better if the climax was spaced well, it was a bit abrupt. The technical values and the dance moves of NTR will remain the highlight of the movie. Commercially, the film will not be a blockbuster but it will surely pass of as a hit and a paisa vasool cinema.
Tollywoodandhra verdict: Can be watched once, recommended
