Udaykiran appears to be making a frantic effort for a comeback into Telugu films. However, he is still in a confused situation and has failed to select a good story. Moreover, he has failed to grab the attention of seasoned directors and hence he is taking a chance by working under novice directors. Polisetty Rambabu, who had produced a comedy film like Gopi (Goda Meeda Pilli), has come forward to produce the film.
Prabhakar @ Prabhu (Udaykiran) is a nonchalant college student. He is straightforward and did not allow anyone to do wrong and he will not spare anyone, who resorts to injustice. He always quarrels with someone and lands in police station. His foster father (Nizhalgal Ravi), who is a psychiatrist, used to bring him from there. Swetha (Diya) is the sister of commissioner of police Ravichandra and is very mischievous girl. Following a complaint that she is bunking classes, the officer sends her to college with police escort. When Swetha tries to escape from them, the police personnel run after her. Unknowingly, Prabhu thrashes the police and upon being challenged, Prabhu says 'I love you' to Swetha. She too gets impressed with his behaviour and loses her heart. At this juncture, Prabhu comes to know that he is being brought up by the doctor couple and his actual father Lakshmi Narayana (Satyaraj) iss taking treatment in mental hospital. Prabhu tries his best to know about the past of his father but can not get any clue. On the advice of Ravichandra, Prabhu takes his father to Kerala for treatment. There incidentally, Prabhu meets the former bodyguard of Lakshmi Narayana and learns that his father is the Election Commissioner and he reached that stage due to a politician Ramadasu (Vijayan). As a co-incidence, Ramadasu's son (Riyaz Khan) too brings Ramadasu to the same asylum in Kerala for treatment. Ramadasu's henchman finds Lakshmi Narayana and tells Ramadasu's son that their rival is still alive. So, he makes attempts to kill Lakshmi Narayana. However, in the climax, Ramadasu and his son kill each other and the story ends on a peaceful note.
Camera by Suresh is just okay and music by Imam is disastrous. However, the director has failed to reach the expectations of the hero and miserably flunked in narrating the story. One thing any director should remember that penning screenplay for a film is not a child's play and it needs a lot of hard work. The entire first half is totally boring and the running of the film is totally out of grip of the director. However, he has dried his butterfingers after the interval while narrating the flashback. Again he lost grip and the story continued to make the audiences move impatiently in their seats. The film also ends in a pathetic way, with no clear indication whether the hero's father gained his knowledge or not.
Kotha Bangaru Lokam Copied Scenes
Apparently panicked with the reports of Megastar Chiranjeevi's entry into politics in a month or two, Telugu Desam president N Chandrababu Naidu decided to rope in the entire NTR family into the Telugu Desam fold, campaigning for the party extensively in the coming months.
Naidu hosted lunch for all the family members of NTR, barring of course NTR's daughter Purandareshwari and her husband Daggubati Venkateshwara Rao, at his residence on Saturday. The lunch was attended by Balakrishna, Harikrishna, Junior NTR, Kalyanram and other grandchildren of NTR. Though it was projected as just a family gettogether, it was evident that they had discussed the future programme of action by the Telugu Desam, in the wake of Chiranjeevi political entry.
Naidu is learnt to have requested Balakrishna and Jr NTR to campaign for the party in the coming days and neutralize the impact of Chiranjeevi and of course YSR. At any cost, they should ensure that YSR would not come back to power. Nobody knows the outcome of the meeting, but it has clearly shown that Naidu is desperately trying to avoid a major setback in the next elections.
Hari Krishna and his two sons NTRjr and Kalyanram, NBK were invited for Launch by Chandrababu Naidu this afternoon.
1. The meeting was held for more than 2 hours.
2. The purpose of the meet was just to counter Chiru, if latter floats a party.
3. Chandrababu is going on for Ratha Yatra from 21st April, for about 150 days- though out the state.
4. The out come of the meeting was- each hero should spare one week at every time with Babu’s Rathayatras.
5. Balayya will join the first week, then NTR jr will join second week, again Balakrishna will join Babu’s Rathayatra in the third week.
