The appeal of this superstar never seems to fade. Chiranjeevi's screen presence and talent have made him the star that he is. The script is written with him in mind, and it is always an all out showcase for this star. Though the storyline and the situations are different, the character essentially remains the same - the rugged macho man with shades of sexism and a can-do-it-all attitude. Shallow as it may seem, the crowds love it, and the star thrives.
Add this one to Chiru's impressive list of super hits - this time around he plays Raju, a rickshaw driver, who also is the union leader of the rickshaw association. He is respected and loved by one and all. After his grand entrance on screen, it is time for the proverbial clash with the leading lady Nagma, who is again rich and arrogant (remember Gharaana Mogudu?), and daughter of the multi-millionaire villain, enacted this time around by Paresh Rawal.
When Raju gets the better of our lady fair, she plots her revenge. She decides to marry him and ditch him at the altar. Things don't go according to plan because her dad needs Raju to win the election he is contesting, and she is forced to marry him.
But trouble starts when Raju's grandmother reveals that his father-in-law is the one who murdered his father and put his mom in prison. Raju confronts his mother, and it is time for the routine 'get even' sequences. Initially he does it with tact and diplomacy by turning to politics himself. When that fails, it is time for the mundane final fight, where, of course, the hero comes out tops.
With some good song and dance sequences, tons of action and entertaining dialogues,
this one is a wholesome masala entertainer for all patrons of commercial cinema.
It's a good performance from Chiranjeevi, and the rest of the cast does just what
it is meant to - support the megastar.
