Review


Story

Raghavayya (Krishnam Raju) - a rich industrialist - has a daughter (Meena Kumari). Raghavayya helps Prasad (Suman) - who was the son of Raghavayya's deceased employee - by funding his studies and finances. Prasad falls in love with Raghavayya's daughter and elopes with her to London and settles there.

Raghavayya adopts a kid from orphanage and names him as Anand (Uday Kiran). In the meantime, Raghavayya's daughter (wife of Prasad) expires due to illness. They have a daughter called Seeta Lakshmi (Shriya). After a few years, they return back to Hyderabad. That's where Seeta Lakshmi meets Anand. Raghavayya has excessive hatred towards love marriages because of his daughter's elopement. Anand is very loyal to his father (Raghavayya).

What would happen if Raghavayya comes to know that his loyal and truthful son fell in love with the daughter of the people who cheated him forms the bone of contention in the second half.

Artists Performance

Uday Kiran: Uday Kiran is matured as an actor. His did pretty well, especially in pathos scenes. He sported a light beard through out the film, hence he looked little unglamorous. Uday Kiran is missing in the climax episode of the film as the story demanded it.

Shriya: Shriya is pretty cool as a bubbly girl. She has lots of weeping scenes as well.

Krishnam Raju: Krishnam Raju gets the lion share of footage in the film. He did extremely well as the stubborn man with rigid frame of mind. His characterization is very similar to that of Amitab Bachchan in K3G (Kabhi Kushi Kabhi Gham).

Others: Suman and Sujatha did well in the vital roles given to them. Brahmanandam acted as 'purohit' (marriage broker) in this film. Looks like Brahmanandam has turned the 'aashtaana purohitudu' for most of the Suresh Productions films. His comedy is partly good. Ravi Babu's role of comedy villain is not impressive. The kids did well as the buddies of Uday Kiran.

Technical Departments:

Story: The basic characterizations of Krishnam Raju and Sujatha are inspired by the K3G film. The following factors are the weaklings in the story

1. Raghavayya should not have come to know about the expiry of his daughter. If its revealed that Raghavayya's daughter is dead in the climax of the film, then Ragahvayya's character might get much-needed elevation and his rigid stand against his daughter would have been justified. On the other hand, if this scheme is implemented the story would have been similar to that of 'Seetaramayya gari manavaralu'.

2. The greatness of the character of Raghavayya took a big blow when he says the dialogue that 'naa kooturu chachipoyindi kaani, nenu bratike vunnanu kada!'. This dialogue is uttered by Raghavayya when his wife asks him why he hates his deceased daughter so much.

3. The character of Prasad appears to be hating Raghavayya and only in the climax it is revealed what reservations Prasad had. Raghavayya has done so much help to Prasad and he does not show any gratitude. It would have been effective if the Prasad's character is shown like he likes Raghavayya a lot inside his heart, but could not face him because of the guilty feeling that he backstabbed Raghavayya.

4. The firmness and rigidity in Raghavayya's character transforms into indecisiveness and state of confusion as the climax approaches.

5. Raghavayya does not realize the how close and dear is her daughter to him till he sees the pre-recorded video of her daughter who spoke to him before dying.

Screenplay - direction: The direction capabilities of Raja Sekhar are average. He could deal well with the emotional scenes involving Krishnam Raju. The screenplay of the film is not gripping enough. The developing of love track between the lead pair is not interesting. The comedy generated in the combination of the kids and Uday Kiran in the first half is not effective. Director gave good characterizations to the Uday Kiran, Sujatha and Shriya, but could not do the justice to the characterizations of Krishnam Raju and Suman.

Music: Music by RP Patnaik is average. The song on Telugu Basha is good though the picturization and the beat resembles that of 'Ekkado Putti' in Student No.1 film. The picturization of 'Goal Goal' song on Shriya, Uday Kiran and the kids is good. Other songs are not effective. The background music is good in the emotional scenes involving Krishnam Raju where a pathos humming of a lady is recorded.

Other departments: Dialogues by Paruchuri brothers are OK. The Krishnam Raju's house set is good. Photography by Ekambaram is good. The only fight episode in the film is impressive.

Analysis:
The film half of the film is mediocre. The second half has some good emotional scenes involving Krishnam Raju. The touch of D Suresh Babu is missing in the taking of this film. However, he should be commended for making a clean film. The climax of the film is emotional (though it is dragged with few twists). The title 'Neeku Nenu Naaku Nuvvu' looks apt for the combination of 'Krishnam Raju - Uday Kiran' and 'Shriya - Suman' than for the lead pair 'Uday Kiran - Shriya'. This film would stand if ladies get hooked to the sentimental scenes.
