Vishnu Murthy (Brahmanandham) tells a love story of two orphans to Lakshmi Devi on Akshaya Thruthiya day. Ravi Teja (Ravi Teja) who does settlements in Hyderabad and Ileana (Ileana), a taxi driver in Bangkok are the two orphans. To create love between them, Ravi Teja was brought to Bangkok on a settlement that involves a mafia don, Prakash Raj. Rest of the story is about the game Vishnu and Lakshmi plays with Ravi Teja, Ileana and Prakash Raj.
Ravi Teja is at his usual energetic self and shouldered the entire burden of running the film from the word start to finish. As usual, he is excellent in every department and has maintained comedy timing through out the movie.
Ileana has lost herself in recent times. Somehow, the charm and beauty on her face is lost and her body looks too pale on the screen. She performed okay in her role.
Though Prakash Raj was the main villain of the film, Puri uses him for comedy purposes in the role of a mafia don who forgets every thing in regular intervals. He was used for some good in the second half.
Ali’s comedy track as devotee of Lakshmi Devi is superb. Brahmanandham and Kovai Sarla are good in their roles. Subba Raju did well in the little role he is offered. MS Narayana appeared and disappeared in a flash. Fish Venkat does a little role too.
Puri Jagannath had already announced that there will not be any story. And yes, the 2 hour odd movie has no significant story but he entertained the audience through out the run time of the movie. He made good decision in restricting the run time of the movie to 2 hours otherwise it would have become difficult to entertain audience. Dialogues written by Puri are awesome as ever. Characterizations and Certain dialogues like
“Manam google chesina vaadu dorakaali kaani….vaadu google chesina manam dorakamu”,
“Kinda chippa ki debba tagilithe paina dippa pani cheyyadu nijam”
“Puraanaala kaalam nunchi kooda mediators ni champe samskruthi manaki ledu saar”
“Nenu 20murders chestha…..kaadu sir 10ki settle cheskondi beraalu vaddu..”
etc were too good. There were certain moments in the second half like the Anna Chellemma track between Prakash Raj and Ileana bored a bit but is manageable.
Raghu Kunche’s music is average and picturisation of songs is okay. Cinematography and Editing is good.
The first half of the movie is passable with nice entertainment and second half even with some boring scenes and unconvincing climax should have been better. But it has good dosage of things expected from Puri – Ravi Teja combination in terms of good hero characterization, superb dialogues and some nice entertainment.
Paisa Vasool Entertainer, if you watch it with zero expectations. If you are looking for some thing more, you can give it a miss
