With his action films bombing badly at the box office, Rajashekar has turned to sentimental dramas to revive his career. And it doesn't seem to be a bad decision.
Rajashekar plays a zamindar, known for his benevolence in the nearby 40-50 villages.
Living with his grandmother Manorama in his native village Dosakayalapalli,
he is the epitome of humility. His other pastime is clashing with the crooked
ex-president of the village, Kota Srinivasa Rao. But these clashes only serve
the comic purposes, because there isn't any real animosity between them.
Hailing from the same village, Laya, who is a first rank holder in EAMCET, and
who can't continue her studies further because of the grinding poverty, is naturally
one of the beneficiaries of his riches. And when she writes to him thanking
him for all his generosity, his friends interpret the act as a message of love.
The convinced Rajashekar starts building love castles in the air, and every incident that happens between them buttresses his belief. After the interval, five years roll in one stroke, by which time she becomes a doctor and he gets a kind of corporate hospital constructed for her in his native village. Ensuring that Laya is safely ensconced in her profession, he tells her about his love for her, only to be told that she has always perceived him as a living God, and not as a lover. From here the fun part is over and the sob story takes over.
For Mutyala Subbaiah it might be the regular stuff, but for Rajashekar it is
definitely not a bad film. There is a whole load of comedians, and they enact
their roles without much fanfare. But they don't bore you either. Then there
is Asha Saini who intends to marry Rajashekar, but ends up getting only a song
and that too in skimpy clothes. Kota Srinivasa Rao is his usual self, and so
are the others. All said and done, this is worth going to the theater, if you
have the time to spare and don't have great expectations.
