In the beginning of the story, Raghupati (Nazar) and Suryanarayana (Parthiban) are good friends in the village called Royadurgam and both are very kind-hearted. They are also the village elders. Once they are discussing about a ritual to be held for the welfare of the village at the Rachabanda. At that moment, a blast takes place and both die on the spot. Scene shifts to another place. Betting Raju (Ram Charan Teja) is the foster son of a couple (MS Narayana and Sudha). He ekes out his living by accepting challenges and winning the bets. Once he wins a car race with James (Ajmal). At this juncture, Raju’s father suffers liver cancer and he needs a lot of money to save him. James comes to his rescue, who challenges Raju to win the heart of Chaitra (Tamanna) and take away Rs 20 lakh. Raju agrees to the challenge. Chaitra is the daughter of Ballari (Mukhesh Rushi), a mafia don. Raju starts luring Chaitra and follows her everywhere. As she is a medico, Raju too dons the role of a medico. When she wants to learn dance, Raju appears there as dance master. Finally, Chaitra gets into the trap of Raju and gives her heart to him. Suddenly, Raju comes to know that Chaitra’s life is under threat and the one who is attempting to kill her is her father. Later, Raju learns that Chaitra is not Ballari’s daughter and he eyed the Rs 10,000 crore property. However, the real story is something different. What is it? What is the relationship between Raju and Chaitra? Who planted the bomb in the beginning of the story and blasted it? What is the link between Ballari and politician Byreddi (Kota Srinivasa Rao and his son (Dev Gill)? Is Raju is the son of Raghupati or Suryanarayana? Is there any unaccomplished task of Raghupati or Suryanarayana? Did Raju complete it? Answers to all these questions get form part of the climax.
Though not so great dancer, Ram Charan too is trying to experiment new steps and rock in dances and it has become his forte and kept the film Orange among the audiences with the songs and dances. Ram Charan continued the trend and excelled in the title song, ‘Teesmaar Khan Racha’, besides ‘Dillaku Dillaku’, ‘Singareni Undi’ and ‘Vana Vana’ (a remix song). Not only songs, Ram Charan flexed his muscles in action scenes too and excelled in all the action scenes. However, he is yet to concentrate on dialogue modulation. Milky beauty Tamanna exposed heavily in this film, and she appeared more gorgeous in ‘Nee Padam’ song, which was tuned in a soft and melodious tune. In the remix ‘Vana Vana’, Tamanna beauty is a feast to the eyes of audiences. Other artistes, including, Dev Gill, Mukesh Rushi, Kota Srinivasa Rao, Brahmanandam did justice to their roles, while comedians tried to tickle the funny bones of the audiences to the maximum extent. Especially, Ali made a hilarious comedy.
It is Manisharma who need to be mentioned first among other technicians. He gave excellent tunes to all the songs and the remix song ‘Vana Vana’ is to be mentioned among them. The choreography of songs too is worth mentioning. Though Vana Vana song is wet on screen, it brings heat in theatre. Next comes the cinematography by Sameer Reddy. Both in India and abroad, he showed his prowess in capturing the locales with his camera. Editing by Gauthamraju is adequate. Dialogues by Paruchuri Brothers are aimed at masses and some of the double meaning dialogues were forced to be withdrawn as per the advice of censor board. But, somehow, some were left to appease the front benchers. Especially in the climax, ‘Edo Cheppi Thoda Kotte Vamsam Kadura Maadi’ kind of dialogues gets good response from the audiences. Finally, Sampath Nandi came out with a good film. Though the story is not that great and is quite predictable one, the ability of the director made it quite interesting. Especially, the way he penned the screenplay is worth mentioning. Because of the tight screenplay, he could be able to narrate the story in an interesting manner. He did never lose grip on the subject because of the perfect screenplay. Especially, the trust that was kept on him by the hero and producers was upheld by the director.
The first half of the film is entertaining with love and romantic track. The real story unfolds in the second half, and it is full of action and revenge drama. It may sustain in theatres till another big film hits the theatres.This film survives with average report at Box-Office.
Our final word: Mass audience and fans can enjoy the film for other it's just OK.
