Manchu Vishnu who is determined to score a success after ‘Dhee’ has arrived and this time he chose the genre of complete entertainment. Whether he is successful or not let us see
 
Story
Suleiman (Vishnu)’s mother Saraswathi (Seetha) marries a Muslim (Suman) without informing her family and her brother Narasimha Naidu (Prabhu) doesn’t forgive her for nearly twenty years. Both families are arch rivals. Suleiman is keen on uniting both families. A case of mistaken identity gets Naidu’s manager Raju (Brahmi) to bring Suleiman to their house as Krishna Sastry (Vishnu) for performing a Yaagam. Suleiman chances upon Sharmila (Hansika), Naidu’s daughter and she falls in love with him. How does Suleiman perform the Yaagam? Is he successful in his mission? All this forms the rest of the story.
 
Performances
Manchu Vishnu has given a committed performance and worked hard in dance, fights and other departments. He has that mischievous glint in his eyes just like his father which works in these types of films. Overall, his job is good.
 
Hansika is a visual feast. She is cute, pretty, bright and sexy wherever required. She has also improved on her performance showing varied emotions. Her contribution is worth.
 
Brahmanandam has got a significant role in this movie. At times he was his usual brilliant self and in few places he went overboard. His timing with Manchu Vishnu works well for the film.
 
Prabhu was elegant, same with Suman, Seetha was gracious. Vennela Kishore made his presence felt. Kota, M S Narayana, Dharmavarapu, Subbaraju, L B Sriram, Raghu Babu, Ravi, Bharath, Ananth, Surekha Vani and others worked better as screen fillers and provided few moments of laughter.
 
Highlights

  • Bramhanandam And Vishnu Scenes

Drawbacks

  • Routine Story
  • Weak emotional quotient

Analysis
Director Srinu Vytla gave a new meaning to the genre of comedy with his kind of films and it has become more or less a format for many directors who want to do family entertainers mixing it with comedy.

Something similar has been done by Nageshwar Reddy here and as usual, he has targeted his favorite community of Brahmins and put in as many satires as he can on them.

Also, he was quite safe in using the Vytla formula without experimenting and everywhere he focused on lightening up the sequences.

The first half was slightly slow and gets dragged at few places but the interval bang was decent. The second half picks up and culminates into a convincing climax. As such, there is nothing boring about the film but at the same time there are no great comedy scenes with strong punch dialogues. Overall, this is a film which is quite light hearted and the audience can just sit back and watch it without tension.
 
Bottomline: You can get ready to watch it on the festival day
