Siva (Prince) is a honest and straight forward youth but is forced to work in a illegal liquor syndicate, which is owned by Bapineedu. Meanwhile, Gayatri (Nanditha) also works there and within a short period the duo falls in love. Their secret love gets leaked and leads to unexpected twists.How does Shiva and Gayatri face the twists forms the crux
Neku Naku introduces 42 debutants to Tollywood. The lead actor Prince is tall and handsome and has delivered a good performance as a debutant. But his acting reminds us of Mahesh Babu in certain scenes. His dances are good.
Lead lady Nanditha is convincing and she looked glamorous all the film. She pulled off her role with ease and style. Nanditha is talented and impressive.
Jai, Venu are decent and the person who has done Bapineedu role is justifying. Paruchuri Venkateswara is good. Suman Shetty needs a special mention among the cast who provided a good comic relief. Others were adequate.
The basic story line is interesting and the first half is actually not too bad.
For the first time, a film has been shot with red epic camera but the cinematography is pretty average. Cinematography is good in places. Yashwanth’s music is good but the background score by Anoop Rubens is below average. Dialogues are rustic and good in places. Editing could have been much better. Teja’s direction is comparatively better than his last releases but the screenplay is highly predictable in the second half. Production Values were okay.
Teja has come up with a distinct yet thin storyline of liquor mafia backdrop but the screenplay is highly predictable in the lines of his own films Jayam, Nijam, Avunnana Kadanna. Few of the scenes are too raw with rusty dialogues. The narration and presentation reminds you of the director’s routine and regular films. The first half of the movie totally reminds of Shopping Mall and Mynaa storyline but it was presented in Teja’s style. The climax is another let down and fails to grab your interest. Heroine Nanditha comes as surprise and she will have a bright future in Tollywood and apart from this, the film has hardly countable interesting scenes.
