Poor Rajashekar seems to be groping in the dark as to his choice of films. He
played a supercop in Okkadu Chalu and followed it up by an innocent rustic
in Manasunna Maaraju. While the former was a disaster, the latter managed
to evoke some response. So he stretches his goodness and comes up with Maa
The film is a tale of a responsible elder brother Rajashekar, who raises his
three brothers who are as old as his sons the hard way. The brothers - Rajashekar,
Brahmaji and Vineet - fall into the footsteps of their elder brother and become
good family members showering love and affection all around. While the elder brother
multiplies their assets, the younger brothers do good in their studies. Brahmaji
becomes an SI, while Vineet becomes a doctor. Only the junior Rajashekar discontinues
his studies and decides to help out his brother.
Everything goes well for them and there are absolutely no quarrels of any kind.
All of them look up to their big brother with awe and respect. Naturally. For
Rajashekar had sacrificed his lady love, Deepti Bhatnagar, for them. The younger
brothers are too quick to fall in love, and manage to impress their loved ones.
While the junior Rajashekar falls for Meena, the youngest of the lot Vineet loves
Maheswari. Only Brahmaji settles for an arranged marriage with Rukmini.
Every time a marriage takes place in the family it looks as if that is going to
upset the family applecart. But their wives manage to dissolve their self into
the collective consciousness of the family. Spreading mirth and laughter around,
they are a bundle of joy. No effort by the external enemies - Devan (Meena's father)
and Nazar (Maheswari's father) - to create fissures in the family cuts any ice.
The film is good to watch with all the fun and laughter, lent support by A V
S and Sudhakar. If only Raviraja Pinisetty concentrated on the screenplay, the
film would have been a brilliant one. But he gets mired in the traditional line
of story development although he manages to keep the movie from getting caught
in the grip of the villainous characters. Of the heroines, only Meena has a bit
of a role. Others, including Maheswari, have very minor roles.
