These days the writers are of the opinion that there are no stories for a film with a single hero. But director Paruchuri Murali has prepared a subject with three heroes. Another important point to note is that a hero playing dual roles has become very uncommon feature these days. But Balakrishna has dared to play triple roles for this film depicting three generations as grandfather, father and son. Will this experiment would reap fruits now-a-days?
STORY OF THE MOVIE IN BRIEF:
Harischandra Prasad (Balakrishna) is an influential leader in Rayalaseema and he treats all the people as his children. To provide jobs to all those living in his region, he decides to build a huge steel plant with the assistance of foreign collaborators. But Ramappa (Pradeep Rawat) and his assistant (Kota Srinivasa Rao) oppose this. They are also power factionists in the region. They hatch a plan to eliminate him. His son Ramakrishna (Balakrishna) thwart the villain’s plans and follow his father’s way. But the story turns a cruel twist as the villains strike at the heart of the family by using Bobby (Balakrishna). What is the plan? How do they manipulate Bobby? What is the twist in the story? Answers to all these questions form part of the climax.
Balakrishna has done justice to all three roles. It is the grandfather’s role which grabs more attention of the audiences. The grandson’s role gains the attention of the front-benchers. All his action, song and dance sequences impress front-benchers. His dialogues have also got lot of punch in them. Laxmi Rai, who appears in some romantic songs, has filled the glamour slot appropriately. Others like Jayasudha, Sukanya, Kota Srinivasa Rao, Pradeep Rawat, Charan Raj have donce justice to their respective roles. MS Narayana, Venumadhav and Brahmanandam tickle the funny bones of audiences.
Cinematography by T Surender Reddy is unimpressive and Kotagiri Venkateswara Rao, though a senior-most editor of the film industry, completely failed to use his scissors and the film had many jerks at most of the places. Dialogues are good in parts. However, the dialogues penned for the grandfather’s character and father’s role have lots of punches. When it comes to music, Kalyani Mallick looked very week in giving good tunes to the songs. However, he puts a good show in re-recording. His background score elevated many scenes in the film. Paruchuri Murali could be given full marks for elevating the hero’s image as far as all the three characters. However, he could not show the same work when it comes to the subject. The director should have grip on all the crafts of the film and he should keep a look at all of them at one go. The director ignored certain departments like use of wigs of the father’s role and his beard as they looked in different shapes in different takes. When it comes to action or fight scenes, they are okay and the songs also appeared good on the screen. The director though lost grip on the story on many occasions, he was able to regain it immediately. It was like riding on a mad horse by a learner.
It is a Balayya-mark film and would definitely attract his fans. No doubt the film would ‘B’ and ‘C’ section audiences and would go well with the mass audiences and hence will have a commercial success. Watch the film for masala entertainment but for not a decent view.
