Did you enjoy the old ANR films where he takes to the bottle when his ladylove is engaged to another person? The Y2K generation, if Chirunavvuto is any representation, can digest the disappointment. But one thing remains common to the two: the adoration for their ladylove even after she has become another's woman - bottle or no bottle.
Venu (Venu) is a Home Science B. Sc. student adept at cooking up culinary delights. This guy is fresh out of college and on the lookout for a job. His search leads nowhere, since, unmindful of his plight, he goes by what his heart believes and makes a mess of all the interviews.
On one of his rounds to a pub, he rescues Sandhya (Shaheen) from a gang of drunken youth, and they become friends. Like you may expect, Venu falls in love with Sandhya. But before he can reveal his mind, or rather heart, she shocks him with her engagement to the eccentric Pratap (Prakash Raj).
Venu is unable to forget Sandhya and keeps dreaming of his ladylove. But he doesn't become a drunkard. Nor does he try to separate them, despite Prakash Raj being a rogue. He only makes it known to her that he is in love with her and that he cannot forget her.
Their friendship turns sour and he becomes an indifferent man, even to her. The film plods along these lines with the heroine trying to make him understand that friendship and love are different and the hero saying that one can be in love with a girl even after she is married to another person.
The theme is good and it is handled well. It's only that Venu acts and behaves like a superhero. And he's hardly been in a couple of films! Shaheen puts in a fine performance considering the fact that this is her first film. The comedy is okay. Though there is nothing new about it, it is not loud and awkward, either. For Prakash Raj this is another addition to the numerous roles of this kind that he has done before. Venu, with his wooden expression, disappoints. Watch this film if you have nothing else to do.
