A romantic tale, the story begins with Pradeep (Raja) and he chances upon Vaishnavi (Kamna) only to fall for her at the first sight. The regular chase sequences happen and finally Vaishnavi falls hopelessly in love with Pradeep. However, there is a problem. Vaishnavi's father Raghuram (Nagababu) is a strict man and hates the word of love, he has a strong flashback for that. Pradeep-Vaishnavi's love is spotted by Raghuram's friend in Bangkok and he passes on the news. However, Pradeep uses his brain and hatches a plan in such a way that his friend Shyam's (Ali) picture is sent to Raghuram. Meanwhile, he also devises a plan in such a way that his father (Nizhalgal Ravi) and his family meets Raghuram and his family and Raghuram is not aware that Pradeep is the man his daughter loves. All goes well and there comes a stage when Raghuram fixes up the wedding of Pradeep-Vaishnavi. However, a twist of tale occurs and the truth is revealed. What happens after that forms the rest of the story.


The director has come out with a regular and predictable subject and though the presentation was alright, the narrative was quite slow for a lot of time. The dialogues were normal, the music has taken a lot of inspiration from other songs, camera was just about okay. Editing was required during the first half. Screenplay was effective. The comedy track was somewhat okay and managed few laughs. Raja has come out with his regular performance but then he needs to pump in a lot of energy in his voice else he is going to become stereotype. Even his body language needs to pep up with some energy and enthusiasm. Kamna was cute and voluptuous, she fitted the bill correctly. Nagababu has come out with a powerful performance while Nizhalgal Ravi was elegant and is making up for the absence of Raghuvaran. MS was his regular self while Ali's comedy was not upto this potential. The others did their bit and contributed.


The film had a routine plot and the entire first half just drags along with stale comedy and predictable scenes. It is not until the second half that the momentum picks up and the audience is kept to the seat in a good way. The item song by Rachana Mourya was spicy. Overall, the film could have been better if it had some more dose of comedy and the script was tight with a strong message. Technically, it did not have major flaws but commercially a word of mouth only will take it to a decent mark.

An average entertainer...
