Besides receiving critical acclaim, all his previous movies have been big hits at the Box Office. Now, he has once again made sure that his latest release Kotha Janta will also impress the film goers in Andhra Pradesh.

Kotha Janta is a romantic comedy entertainer with all commercial elements to woo mass audience. Allu Sirish's performance is one of the big highlights in it. Maruthi's interesting story, screenplay and punch lines, Regina Cassandra's glamour, Saptagiri's comedy timing, JB's trendy music and Richard Prasad's beautiful cinematography are other attractions in the movie. The dragging and boring narration in the second half is its one big drawback.

Maruthi has taken a unique concept for Kotha Janta and tried his best to execute it on screeb with some interesting twists and turns. The story is all about what happens when a selfish boy and girl fall in love with each other. The director has done brilliant screenplay and made it a colourful romance drama.

The movie Kotha Janta opens with the funny introduction of the hero and heroine's selfish childhood days. The first half of the film has a racy and engaging narration. Allu Sirish and Regina's romance and Sapthagiri's hilarious comedy keep you engaged and entertained in this portion. Following the break up of lovers before the interval bang, the movie hits a rough patch and the narration goes very slow in the second half. Though the climax is predictable, it is interesting.

Programme director Sirish (Allu Sirish) and Creative director Suvarna (Regina Cassandra) are selfish individuals, who team up to make a new programme Kotha Janta to increase TRP of Y Channel. While they are working together, they start feeling an emotional bond between them. Daring Sirish proposes Suvarna, but an expected twists splits them and makes them rivals. What happens next will form the crux of the story.

As a selfish guy, Allu Sirish has delivered good performance in Kotha Janta. He has shown lot of maturity and improvements in his acting when compared to his debut film Gouravam. As his partner, Regina Cassandra has done her best. She wins the heart of viewers with her glamour. Saptagiri has tried his best to tickle the funny bones of audience. Madhurima's item number is good. Others have also done justice their respective roles.

Kotha Janta has rich production values and JB's music is main attraction in the technical front. His songs and background score are big assets of the film. Richard Prasad's picturisation is another big strength of the film. His camera work in song sequences is superb. Selection of beautiful locales and costume is commendable. Ashok Kuruba's editing is also good, but he could have chopped some boring scenes in the second half of the film.

Overall, Kotha Janta is another youthful and colourful entertainer from director Maruthi. Allu Sirish, Regina Cassandra and Saptagiri rock you with their performances. The movie can be a good entertainer for family audience this weekend.
