Ashok's folks (especially his bro) make no pretences about liking his waywardness and cricket aspirations. The only support he finds is in his childhood chum Julie (a deglamourised Kalyani). Except for the last part of a childhood friend, the characterisation of Ashok is on the same terms as those of Pavan Kalyan in Tholi Prema
. But it's not anybody's fault just that every possible tree has been scaled before itself.
A plethora of movies were based on the tried and tested blueprint of friends becoming perfect lovers and how friendship will prepare you for the hardships after marriage. This one tries its fate going against that speeding traffic.
When Ashok and Julie are suggested to tie the knot, they don't laugh, they vocalise. They vocalise lengthy and tiresome opinions of the writer about the impurity of tainting friendship by getting married. "Shot through the heart and friendship to blame, you give love - a bad name." Meanwhile, with the demise of Julie's dad (Chandra Mohan in an endearing role), the troubles arrive in the form of Roti, Kapdaa aur Makaan.
