EVV started his career with Prema Khaidi a love story. He also turned a producer and made several films on his own banner EVV Cinema. EVV earned a good name for bringing out good family subjects and rib-tickling comedy films. Especially, his films like Hello Brother with Nagarjuna, Appula Apparao with Rajendra Prasad, would be remembered by the audiences forever and the audiences refuse to change the channel, even when they were screened on TV. Now he is back in Buridi with his son Aryan Rajesh in the lead.

Though his younger son Allari Naresh established himself as hero and is acting in more than three films a year, his elder son Aryan Rajesh failed to get a break. Keeping this in view, EVV planned to give him the much-needed break with a film in his own direction. However, in order to run the peculiar story penned by him, he is forced to give a key role to MS Narayana and Raghubabu and subdued the hero. In the absence of proper footage and attention, the director has indirectly snubbed him.

Story:

MS Narayana (MS Narayana) is a small don and Raghu (Raghubabu) is his assistant. Narayana used to fool people around him for survival and looking for an opportunity to prove his calibre. Even as he was thinking big, a person meets Narayana with a mask to his face and gives him a 'supari" of Rs 5 lakh to kill a girl who is staying abroad. He sends Narayana and Raghu to Bangkok. He also makes arrangements for their stay in a hotel run by a Telugu man (AVS).

Narayana and Raghu claim that they were from the film industry and came there for subject discussion. As the hotel owner dreams of making his son a hero, he tries to impress both of them. Meanwhile, the room number provided by that unknown person gets spoiled and Narayana wants to find who was the exact target. Narayana and Raghu change their attire as room-service boys and inspect each and every room in the floor. In the process they meet eight couples and suspect all the husbands of the women.

Meanwhile, Narayana gets a call from India that an old woman, whom he admitted to a hospital died and she gives away her entire property of Rs 5 crore to him. This makes him realise that only the good will have a right impact on life and decides to give up the murder plan. Who is Aiswarya? Why that unidentified person wanted to kill that girl? What happened to the dreams of AVS in making his son a hero? How Rajesh fell in love with Aiswarya (Aiswarya)? Answers to all these questions form part of the climax.

HIGHLIGHTS:

There are a total of 10 couples in the film. Excluding the hero and heroine, all the other were comedians. Each of them individually have small roles but they tried to do justice to their characters. The highlight of the film is nothing but the situational comedy. At the most, the audiences could have a smile but not a hearty laugh. The entire film was shot in Bangkok, the favourite destination of director EVV Satyanarayana. Camera work by Srinivasa Reddy is another highlight as he was able to capture the beautiful locales abroad and present it in an appealing manner. Dialogues by Janardhana Maharshi are good in parts.

LAPSES:

With no elevation in the characterization, the film remained yet another flop in Aryan Rajesh career. Debutant heroine Aishwarya neither had the glamor nor could perform. She helped in shaking legs with the hero for a couple of duets. Though the film has almost all the comedians in the Telugu film industry, it could not provide the adequate entertainment to suit the expectations of the audiences. Tunes scored by Koti failed to impress the audiences and in the absence of melodious songs, their choreography too was proved to be unbearable. It is surprising why a director like EVV failed to pen a good story, especially, when the film had his son as hero. None of the scenes are rib-tickling and the screenplay was clumsy and the story is filled with lot of fictions. In the absence of a good story and gripping subject, the film failed to reach the expectations from any class of audiences.

REMARKS:

Don"t go to the film with lots of expectations. Though the film appears good visually while your stay in the theatre, the film could not provide the expected comedy despite the presence of almost 16 comedians. The screenplay, and dialogues penned by the director and Janardhana Maharshi, could not tickle the funny bones of audiences. Watch the film, only if you have any respect towards EVV, but not for any kind of comedy. The film"s tagline needs to be changed from 'Tega Navvinchettadu" to 'Tega Visiginchettadu"
