A film based on typical mentality
This is a film based on a typical mentality of the present day youth with a small touch of mafia and terrorism and at the same time, he imbibed some fantasy scenes to elevate the humour touch. Story and dialogue writer turned director Janardhana Maharshi, chose an easy path for his debut. As he is well-versed with script writing, he gave good twists to the story here and there and made the film worth watchable. Once again, Jagapatibabu made a special appearance as a CBI officer (Earlier, he did a similar role in Anukokunda Oka Roju).
Gopi (Allari Naresh) is a pickle minded personality. He just can't settle at one place. He always changes his mind and leaves the one which he has on hand if he gets a better one. His parents (Tanikella Bharani and Hema) thought of get him married so that he would settle in his life. At this juncture, he happens to meet Lakshmi (Gowri Munjal) in the pellichoopulu of his friend Balu (Ali). He spoils the mind of Balu and forces him to say no. Gopi goes to Lakshmi's house to reveal his opinion to marry her.
[an error occurred while processing this directive]Even as the marriage date is in three days, he gets a mail about a big job whose interview is in Bangalore. He decides to attend it. He manages Lakshmi and goes to Bangalore. After reaching there and attending the interview, he gets a phone call from Lakshmi that there were blasts in Bangalore and all kinds of transport were closed. However, impressed by his behaviour, Gopi's boss gives him his van for his travel to Hyderabad. On his way to Hyderabad, he comes across Priya (Arthi Chabria), who is quite beautiful. So, Gopi ignores Lakshmi and decides to marry Priya.
Meanwhile, the kingpin behind the blasts Abu Gulam (Vinodkumar) gets caught by the CBI officer Balwinder Chadha (Jagapatibabu).
Gopi spends a night in a resort near Hyderabad with Priya to impress her. But the manager of the resorts Karunanidhi (Sunil) identifies Priya as Monica who is behind the blasts in Bangalore. But he could not reveal it. After checking out of the hotel, one unknown person Sampoornam (Brahmanandam) boards their van and turns a thorn in the armpit for Gopi. Somehow, Gopi manages to get rid of him and decides to marry Priya with the help of one of his friends (Venumadhav), who also identifies her as Monica. As the police round up the place, both Gopi and Monica escape from the place in another car only to get caught by Balwinder Chadha. Realising his folly, Gopi returns to the marriage venue. He tries to tell a cock and bull story but no one listens to it. Then comes Gopi's nephew and tells him how dangerous if one's mind is not firm and remains pickle minded. After everyone accepted that Gopi had realized his mistakes, the marriage event continues. As a final touch to prove that Gopi continued to remain the same, the Goddess Lakshmi comes from Vaikuntham and Gopi starts go after her. The film ends on a happy note.
The continuous comedy in the film is quite enthralling. The film is humorous right from the beginning till the end. The comedy in itself is a plus point. The characterization of Gopi is good. Arthi Chabria did a good job in a glamour role with a negative touch. Action scenes involving her were choreographed well. Songs is another highlight. Allari Naresh showed good ease in shaking legs both with Arthi Chabria and Gowri Munjal. The sentimental scenes were another plus point in the film.
Though evoked laughter the fantasy scenes through Lord Vishnu and Lakshmi are unnecessary. Suresh failed in the attire of Lord Vishnu with his bulky body. Even his voice failed to suit the character. The catching of mafia leader as well as the lady don has no clues. It is quite cinematic and has no logic. The climax is also not very convincing.
The film is an okay film for time pass. The film opened with above average talk and maximum run for five to six weeks, which means there won't be any loss and little gain to the producers. But, we can count one more hit for Naresh's film count.
