But Sandhya believes in the concept of love after marriage.

Kiran is angry with Sandhya for her refusal. One day she realizes the preciousness of love and by then her parents fixes her marriage with an NRI. Would Sandhya marry that NRI? Would Sandhya appose the parents to marry Kiran? Watch it on the big screen to know the answers.


Uday Kiran: Uday Kiran gave a matured performance in this film. His improved a lot in the department of dialogue delivery and histrionics. His performance in pathos scene is really good.

Richa Pallod: Richa Pallod is pretty good in this film. She looked very sensible in histrionics and She oozed sensuous with her body language.

Others: Sunil taken major share of comedy with his dialogue-oriented punch. Al the character artists played roles that possess positive outlook.

Technical Departments

Story: First half does not have any story. The interval twist of Sandhya's and Kiran's contrasting opinions and explanations about love and marriage are not convincing enough. What followed in the second half is predictable!

Screenplay - direction: The screenplay of the film is placid except for the last few reels. However, director did a good job in showing positive outlook of elders (parents of hero and heroines) and canning a satisfactory climax.

Music: Music of the film is good. But what makes RP music more interesting is placing of songs in the right scenes and canning them with emotional depth. 'Nee Manasu Naaku Telusu', 'Ounani Antaavo' and 'Priyatama' song are good on the screen.

Photography: Strangely, two photographers - Sarath and Sameer Reddy - are used for this film. Cinematography is a plus point.

Dialogues: Few of the dialogues are pretty good in the film that has philosophical orientation. The punch dialogues written for Sunil are also good.

First half of the film is pretty slow and is average. The second half has some story in it. Last half an hour of the film is good. The emotions are not properly taken care of in the first half. Uday Kiran proved himself as a good actor even in pathos scenes through this film. Over all, it's an average film that can be watched it at your leisure.
