Suleman changes his name to Krishna Sastry and goes to his uncle’s) house to perform homam. narsimha naidu’s daughter (Hansika) falls in love with Krishna sastry. What happens after that. Will both the families unite forms the remaining plot.
Performances: Vishnu improved a lot in terms of comedytiming but he appeared lean and skinny. Hansika is good and glamorous. Brahmanandam is good in the confused role. MS Narayana, Dharmavarapu, AVS, Bharath are okay. Prabhu is good in the role of factionist. Suman, Sita, Surekhavani, Pratibha fitted in their roles. Art work and Cinematography are mediocre, and the editing is okay. The story is not a new one. The Screenplay is also predictable. The Direction is mediocre. The production values are not up to the mark.
Analysis: As publicized this movie is not a sequel to ‘Dhee’ movie. It’s remake of a Malayalam flick Udhayapuram Sultan(1999). A lot of changes have been done to the original content to match our nativity, only the elopement track and the climax plot have been taken.
Vishnu changed his body language to suit to comedy but in a couple of scenes he couldn’t match. He should still improve his diction. He is okay in action episodes. Hansika looked chubby and her glamour show attracts masses. She has done her part well. She is a definite plus to the movie. Brahmanandam has become very repetitive in such roles. The remaining cast are okay.
The Music is okay. Yuvan shankar raja has given Peppy numbers. Chakri has given okay music. The songs (Pillandam keka, Pilla Neevalla) are melodious and catchy; the background score is not up to the mark. The picturisation of songs could have been better. They lack richness. Art work is poor( The same set erected for the movie Uu.. Kodathara Vulikkipadatha movie), The whole movie takes place there only. The cinematography has more jerks. Editing is okay. The story line is very old and wafer thin. The story is a mix of earlier hit flicks. The script department Konavenkat, Gopi Mohan, BVS Ravi, Marudhuri raja have succeeded in cooking some comedy episodes.
Director G.Nageswara Reddy mixed up his earlier comedy flicks Seemasastry andSeematapakai and churned out similar scenes and the script writers fitted them in this malayalam script. All the characters behave as we expect. Brahmanandam has done many such characters earlier, it is a repetitive one for him. The Medley song before climax remind us of EVV’s flicks. The first half is okay and second half is better.
The movie’s fate completely depends on how it’s received in B,C centers.
Plus: Hansika, Brahmanandam Scenes
Minus: Old story, Predictable screenplay
Verdict: Old Wine in Old Bottle. Average flick. Can Watch it for Time pass(If you are okay with Brahmanandam’s Repetitive old Scenes)
