Arjun (Mahesh Babu) and Meenakshi (Keerthi Reddy) are twins. Arjun and Meenakshi complete their graduation. Meenakshi and Uday(Raja) who study in the same class fall in love and they do not express it when they leave the college. Raja's marriage gets fixed by his Madhurai based parents Bala Nayagar (Prakash Raj) and Andal (Saritha). Raja sends an invitation card along with a letter expressing his love to Meenakshi and she expresses her feelings to Arjun. He goes to Madhurai along with his parents and gets Uday and Meenakshi married to each other. Bala and Andal are cold-blooded murderers and they are not happy with this. Arjun foils all the attempts by Bala and Andal to get rid of Meenakshi from the life of Raja. The rest of the story of the film is about how he exposes the evil nature of the in-laws.
Taking and technique of Guna Sekhar is excellent. The framing of shots is superb. Screenplay by Guna Sekhar is a bit on the slack side as he took too much of time to establish the simple story and characterizations. Taking of the film is stylish. Direction of the film is adequate, but action orientation dominated sentimental scenes at times. The narration of the film is pretty slow. Background score by Mani Sharma is terrific. Songs are better on the screen compared to listening on the audio player. My personal favorite is 'Sambhavami' that has excellent stylish presentation in video album style. The next best song is 'Dumdumare' song that is shot in Madhura Meenakshi temple set with the night effect. The next choice is the teasing song 'Raa Raa'. 'Madhura Meenakshi' song is also good. The remaining two duets between Mahesh and Shriya could not make much impact, as they do not have proper lead scenes.
TeluguOne Perspective :
The movie starts with a terrific frame of Mahesh narrating his story. First half of the film is fair. There is no bang/twist for the interval. The graph goes down in second half. Action sequences dominated the sentiment feel in the climax of the film, which made the climax unimpressive. The film closes with Mahesh revealing his name as Arjun. (In the entire film nobody calls him Arjun). The strengths of the film are Mahesh Babu's performance, Guna Sekhar's taking and Ramesh Babu's lavish production values. This film suffers with lack of having a powerful villain who can withstand the mighty heroism of Mahesh Babu. There is no much comedy in the film except for exams episode. The movie's duration is more than 3 hours, which is very lengthy. But people who go to watch this film with the expectations of another Okkadu will be disappointed. This film has both sentimental feel and action orientation. The fate of the film would depend on how family crowds (especially ladies) and masses receive sentiment and action scenes respectively.
