Varun Sandesh who has been going through a lean patch in his career is back with a different entertainer. Whether it was entertaining enough to rock the box office, let us see

Siva (Varun Sandesh) is on a train to go to his uncle’s house. He chances upon Maya (Asmita) and Siva realizes that she has run away from home. He wants to hep her but she disappears suddenly. Siva reaches his uncle’s (Jayaprakash Reddy) home and here his ‘Maradalu’ Bhagya (Poonam Kaur) is hopelessly in love with him and wants to marry him. Once when Siva and Bhagya go to the market, Maya is spotted and she is chased by the goons. Siva takes Maya and escapes. At the same time, a noted director Brahmi (Brahmanandam) is narrating a story to Siva’s uncle. Interestingly, whatever Brahmi is narrating, the same is happening in real with Siva. Here, Brahmi reveals that the lady in his story is a killer. Is Maya a killer too? Why is she being chased? What happens to Bhagya’s love forms the rest of the story.

Varun Sandesh is seen in a special getup for this film but his new look doesn’t suit him. His lean looks make him appear worse. However, he has improved in his acting though he still has that foreign accent in his Telugu.

Asmita looks sexy but she is blank in acting. Since her character is complex, it would have helped if a performing actress was taken.

Krishnudu brought smiles with his heavy frame but he is yet to improve his acting. Brahmi has not done much comedy but due to his character, few smiles are got. Jayaprakash Reddy was annoying at start but later he was hilarious. Poonam Kaur comes in yet another forgettable role. Despite having good looks she is not getting the chance to do main leads. Prithvi and Amit were okay. Nagineedu was not matching his role.


Brahmi- Jayaprakash Reddy comedy scenes
Asmita’s glamour quotient


Loose screenplay
Directorial flaws
Weak climax

Firstly, it was never explained why Brahmi’s story is happening for real. Though that can be ignored citing cinematic liberty, there are enough hiccups in the story which makes it difficult to term it as a fulsome comedy treat.

Except for those few comedy scenes here and there, the rest of it is trash. If this story was given to any other director he would have brought better result but Eshwar Reddy gave it up. If this had Allari Naresh then it would have been added bonus. Keeping the plot in suspense till the end was good but when it is revealed, one cannot help laughing. After all the hiding, one gets a feeling this is what the director had to say. There is no strength in any sequence.

And with the heroine unable to act, not much sympathy comes to her character. Except for few laughs here and there, the story is a bore.

Bottomline: It’s a stale curry not a story
