Story:

Sreenu (sivaji) is a guy who is struggling to clear his degree and his mother (pragati) is concerned about his marriage. However, his life takes a turn when he sees Swetha (sonia) and decides to marry her only. On the other hand, in Brahmalokam, Brahma (rajendra prasad) has a small tiff with Saraswati (kalyani) and passes a decree. Few situations take place and due to that, Sreenu ends up drinking a magic potion that gives him the power to read everyone’s fates. This leads to few troubles which forces Brahma to come to Bhulokam along with Yama (jayaprakash reddy) and Chitragupta (avs). What happens after that forms the rest of the story.

Artist performances:

Rajendra Prasad was the perfect choice for the role and he gave a contained performance giving that divine effect. Sivaji was also good and his natural talent was seen. Sonia looks sensuous and her dialogue delivery has got a charming appeal. Venu Madhav was good at few places, Aarti Agarwal was alright, Pragati was regular, Jayaprakash Reddy was standard, AVS was witty, Raghu Babu could have been better, Kalyani and Laya were serene enough. Siva Prasad was hardly there, Telangana Sakunthala was usual, the others did their bit as required.

Minus points:

    * second half
    * predictable storyline

    * few songs at unwanted situations
    * pace
    * weak romance track

Analysis:

The film runs on a decent line and the makers attempted to fit in all elements in it. While there are few good points in the film, there are also few setbacks that take away the attention of the audience. While the first half looks good and it promises an interesting twist before the interval, the second half gets a bit stale but thanks to the performances of the actors, the tempo is maintained. Overall, the film is good in parts and it has appeal to the family as well as the mass audience. This can be a profit grosser at the box office if the word of mouth is positive.

Verdict: Can be watched once
