Raghu (Vamsi Krishna) stays with his uncle Mallikarjun (Chandramohan) to pursue studies, while his father (Suman) lives abroad with his wife. They are NRIs. There is one Chandramohan in the house played by Mallikarjuna Rao. He is servant there. You find naming these characters with reversal of names as unnecessary. Sindhu is the daughter of Giribabu and Kavita, an understanding couple. They have a son, named Vamsee who is used to comment upon the happenings in the film especially on the love affair between Sindhu and Raghu. For Raghu being the son of NRIs ‘boy friend’ and ‘girl friend’ are routine. For her the relationship is quite deep it is so deep that she wants to marry him. One day she expresses that. But Raghu refuses saying he just only treated her as a friend. The girl takes it as a challenge and goes to court.
The court proceedings concentrate on the single point of what the girl and the boy moving closely on motorbike alone on beeches, closely sitting and watching things and so on should mean. Does it mean anything other than being in love? He says he never loved her nor will, but will sure help her to find another man of his status to marry. The court agrees and postpones the proceedings. Sindhu simply walks into the house of Raghu and claims her position in the house as his dependent as the court wrest the responsibility of finding a husband for her. She says she cannot live away from him because their story got publicized through TV channels. Raghu’s parents arrive and take liking for the girl, as she looks totally traditional. They too promise they would find a good boy for her to wed, as the boy says he has no interest in her. One Surya comes into picture and says he is a software engineer and is ready to marry Sindhu. The moment they begin thinking they are going to be separated, heartbeat goes up for both. What happens next is retained for the climactic part.
The second part is the essence of the drama and through the court proceedings, the film warns girls and boys moving on motorbikes together, enjoying film shows and eat-outs and roaming around together closely would mean ruin. Vamsi Krishna and Naveena, though novices to the screen, do well. They look like next door residents. One significant feature is its music. Satyam, the music director, also makes a debut with this film. He displays good grip on both classical and folk. His tunes are quite melodious and sensible. So are his background scores. Suman as Raghu’s father has a brief role towards the end. He looks dignified. Chandramohan, Giribabu, Kavita and Rajita play well their character roles. The film is a good attempt to bring forth a social issue that concerns the present day youth.
