Sundeep Kishan who is budding his way to the hero league has come up with a dubbed package. The title is strong given the person’s name but is the film strong enough? Let us see
Story
Shiva (Sundeep) is a careless and irresponsible student at college and he is accompanied by his friend Vasanth (Jagan). Shiva comes across Sandhya (Dimple) and falls in love with her. Eventually she also falls in love with him. One day Shiva visits Sandhya’s home and they end up making love. Sandhya becomes pregnant and both get married. The story takes a turn when Shiva discovers he may not be the real father and there is a guy called Mahesh. He sets out on a mission to locate who this Mahesh is and what happens from there forms the rest of the story.

Performances
Sundeep Kishan is neat and has a cute face. He was alright in most scenes but he was unable to carry the emotional and comedy sequences that well. Still, he has a good spark in him as a performer.

Dimple Chopade has sex appeal written all over her. The lust quotient that comes from her eyes and the innocent desire raising quotient is high. In terms of performance, she was upto the mark.
Jagan is the real entertainer in the film. Due credit must be given to Dhanraj who has dubbed his voice and gave some entertaining punch lines.
Livingston was standard, Uma Padmanabhan was apt, Srinath was usual, Swaminathan was okay.
Highlights
  • Sundeep’s screen presence
  • Jagan’s performance
Drawbacks
  • Weak direction
  • Second half
  • Screenplay
  • Pace
Analysis
Tamil films coming to Telugu in dubbed format is a tradition being followed since many decades.

There was a time when the success percentage was high but lately that impact is not being seen. This time, we have a small budget flick and that too with a familiar face as the male lead.
Ideally, the concept of the film was impractical and slightly humorous. But the director failed to conceive it rightly on the cinematic format. This is where most of the filmmakers fail. There was ample scope for entertainment, comedy and other interest aspects in this but that momentum was not generated. Still, there were few entertaining bits here and there.
The film takes off on a humorous note but the graph dips from second half onwards. Also, the director didn’t explain why the heroine comes up with that idea. The realization point is missing. Overall, the film works in few places due to the dialogues but overall it doesn’t carry that weight to hook the audience throughout its duration.
As the film comes to climax it ends up like a B grade Malayalam film.
