After reading the reviews from the major websites, I went to the movie without much expectation. May be because of this lowered expectations, I liked this movie.
Let me analyze why I liked this movie when so many others in this site have disliked it:
1. Firstly I am fan of NTR, that does not mean I liked all his films.
2. I like comedy movies in general. NTR has not so far established himself as a great comedy actor. But in this movie he has acted well as the brahmin and he got the accent spot on.
3. Even though the story is a very old one, the treatment stands out. Right from the beginning scene to the climax, there is no part which drags on. It is a fast paced movie, loaded with humor.
4. The best part of the humor is that it is a situational comedy, so we enjoy it even more.
Now coming to the reviews, many said that the first half was good with comedy. I found the second half to be more hilarious. Especially the scenes involving Raghubabu, MS, Brahmanandam and the villains. Yes the villains, for most part were comedy villains, but I did not find anything to complain about that aspect. They only have added to the racy humor.
Disclaimer: If you see the movie and read this review you may agree. But if you read this review and see the movie you may disagree. So just forget that you have read anything positive about the movie here and the chances are that you may end up liking the movie.
Pros: NTR's action and no-frills narrative style of director
Cons: Yes, the film's story is weak. The heroines do not have prominent roles. The songs could have been picturised better.
