Story: Basthi Balaraju ( Karthikeya) owns a funeral service. He transports dead bodies in his van to cemeteries. One of the bodies that he transports to the cemetery is Mallika( Lavanya Tripathi)’s husband Peter. Balaraju falls in love with her at first sight. How he convinces her and whether she falls in love with him is the main point of the cinema.
Performances: Kartikeya has performed really well. Owing to his characterization as a crazy guy, he lived in that role. Lavanya Tripathi’s performance was average. Aamani, srikanth iyengar, and murali sharma were good as usual. The remaining artists were adequate.
Few Comedy Scenes
Too much cinematic liberty
Analysis: The Director has taken a routine point and tried to present in a new way by designing the hero’s character as a caretaker of dead bodies. The first half starts off interestingly and slows down. Overall, the first half is watchable with few good comedy scenes. However, few dialogues are overboard and too much cinematic livery is taken. The second half slows down completely and is saved by a good and meaningful climax. The screenplay is very poor in 2nd half where the film loses its track completely. Anasuya’s special song didn’t really click that much. Director establishes the point well but chose a routine style of narrating it in 2nd half. Music is average. Cinema-photography is decent. The remaining technicians have done adequately.
