Story:

A boring tale, the story begins with Anjaneya Prasad (Rajendra Prasad) who is a successful farmer and his large family comprising of three daughters, their husbands, kids etc. Prasad's son Bujji (Gopichand) is the pet for the family and the topic of his marriage becomes the discussion. After few initial setbacks, Bujji meets Rajeswari (Taapsee) and it is love at first sight. Eventually, Rajeswari also loves him. The marriage is fixed and on the day of marriage after all rituals are done, an incident happens which leads to a major fight between both families. This results in Bujji and Rajeswari taking divorce. What happens from there forms the rest of the story.

 
Artist performances:

Gopichand is seen in a different role which is mild and subdued. He was decent. Rajendra Prasad was excellent and is a treat to watch. Taapsee was competent and she scores both in glamour and performance departments this time. Shraddha Das offered the required visual feast. Roja was loud to an extent but controlled herself later. Naresh was neat. The support cast in the form of Raghava, Harshavardhan, Pragathi, Gitanjali, Lakshmi Bhargavi did their bit as required. Venu Madhav was not used to his potential. The others didn't have scope.


Plus points:

Cinematography
Taapsee's performance and glamour quotient


Minus points:

Pathetic screenplay
Terrible scriptwriting
Intolerable climax
Dragged second half
Overdose of melodrama
Cheap dialogues in few scenes


Analysis:

For any film to be successful it is very important that the director is convinced with his idea and follows it with concentration without getting diverted. That seems to be the missing link in this film which has resulted in the total execution going haywire. While the intention must be appreciated, there is a way to convey such thoughts and this by no means will appeal to any genre of audience. Overall, the film is weak in content and doesn't have the required material to keep the audience hooked. At the box office, poor results are expected.


Verdict:  Not the best work of Krishna Vamsi!!
