After the completion of the course, Aishwarya breaks up with Siddhu and leaves him in distress. After some years, he meets Shruthi(Varsha Bollama). They fall in love and right when they get ready to propose each other, a sudden twist in the love story arises. What is it and how do the couple reunite in the end is the story.

Analysis:

Shiva Kandukuri makes an impressive debut with this film. He has been nicely trained and that shows in his performance. The young actor is very good with his emotional expressions. In his scenes with his mother and as a person suffering from break up, Shiva has done a super job and if planned well, he will have a decent future. Varsha Bollama is an experienced actor and brings all of it to this film. She is superb in her central role and does well in all her emotional scenes. She brings a lot of depth to the proceedings with her sensitive act. Yet another heroine, Malavika is also impressive in her role.

Anish Kuruvilla is superb as hero’s father and so was Pavitra Lokesh. The guy who played hero’s friend also evoked some laughs here and there. The romantic scenes are decent and have been handled well. The pace of the film is quite slow and takes its own time to come to the actual point. Though the romantic scenes between the lead pair are good, some more drama and conflict between them would have made things even better.

The hero’s role should have been established a bit more logically. He is shown in a confused state most of the time and a stronger arc should have made matters better. The director fails to elevate the emotional drama even though there was good chance for it.
