Story:
Tushar (Rajiv) is an orphan who studies his MA in a university. He falls in love with his classmate Sandhya (Sindhu). And on parallel track an 8th standard girl Bindu (Archana Gupta) happens to become his friend. Sandhya also loves Tushar. But due to unknown reasons, she gets married to some other guy and leaves Tushar. Since then Tushar decides to stay as lifetime bachelor. But the young girl Bindu gets into an infatuation with Tushar. She develops love on him. She sings songs in her heart. Her heart talks to her. She responds to tender feelings of love. Will that friendly bond between Bindu and Tushar shape up into permanent relation? That falls the rest of the story.
 
Performances:
Rajiv performed well. He has mixed shades of Aditya Om, Vinay and Ram. Indeed, he proves to be a good actor down the line. Actresses are ok in their shoes.
 
Gollapudi Maruthi Rao appeared after a long time as Professor Maruthi Rao. Sunil and Lakshmipathi spilled enough of laughs.
 
Music is good and the songs like..'Prema..prema…", 'Anuyuddham…' are good.
 
RP Patnaik's efforts to show something new are seen but not in tune with the taste of majority audience.
 
Analysis:
The efforts of the director to make it a reasonable movie is observed but he made a wrong attempt by showing a 150 episode worth serial in a 2 and half hour movie. This is not a negative criticism but the story chosen requires length in narration to show the emotions in proper depth. The evolution of love in an eighth standard girl on a post graduate guy must be shown in profound sense to meet the sensibility. As the film has to be concluded in stipulated duration, it appears to be something odd and weak.
 
First half of the film goes with Sunil's comedy accompanied with Lakshmipathi and a series of love scenes between the main leads. The love story of young girl brings some inconvenience in the theaters. The inconvenience comes to rest only when the girl is shown as grown up. Second half of the film goes with predictable stuff and the climax is something out of the blue. It ends up with a message which is not in direct connection with the main story.
 
The film has no crowd pulling power. It is difficult to gain something with mouth of publicity as well. The only grace point for this film is the little comedy. Masses also enjoyed appropriately. The fate of this film depends on the audience those can go in resonance with this film. But such audience may not be found in big number.
 
To sum up, it is a good attempt but not in tune with the taste of majority audiences.
