A Classic Entertainer
17 September 2014 | by See all my reviews

Story - Two twin brothers are separated in their childhood and they come across each other after some 25 years. What happens then, forms the story. Oh by the way, both have love interests and a common villain too..!!

Performances - Nagarjuna once again proves his versatility. Be it, the petty thief, "Deva" or the rockstar, "Ravi Varma", Nagarjuna did a fabulous job. Nagarjuna gets two contrasting characters and he excels in both. He's showed a lot of variations in both the characters. Mass comedies are not new for Nagarjuna, but what makes this different from others is the concept of "twins and the reflexes between them". You have to watch the film to know, what I mean by the word "Reflexes". Among others, Kota Srinivasa Rao, Brahmanandam, Mallikarjuna Rao, Babu Mohan, Giri Babu get major share and they excel in their roles. Ali's role is very nice, though only lasts for a couple of scenes. Heroines don't contribute significantly to the plot. Napolean as the baddie, did very well.

Music - Music by Raj-Koti is superb. "Kanne Pettaro", "Priya Ragale" are still popular. Background score is very nice.

Other Technical Departments - Cinematography and Editing are fine. Art work is nice.

Dialogues - Dialogues by L.B.Sriram are very good. He oozed comedy in most of the dialogues. The Godavari-accent dialogues written for Nagarjuna are superb.

Story, Screenplay & Direction - Story is taken from Hong Kong comedy, "Twin Dragons" starring Jackie Chan and modified according to Telugu nativity. Direction is good. E.V.V.Satyanarayana made sure that there is ample humor in most of the scenes. His screenplay is interesting. There are totally 3 pairs in this movie, 3 leads and 1 sidekick to each of them. Nagarjuna-Brahmanandam, Kota Srinivasa Rao-Mallikarjuna Rao, Giribabu-Babu Mohan are the pairs and the comedy is nicely generated within the pairs. It is a nice approach for comedy movies.

Final Piece - First half is good and the second half is equally nice. The only minus points are few double meaning dialogues (only few) and pre-climax scenes. Apart from these minus points, the film is a full laugh riot. There is a lot of comedy in the movie due to which it has a terrific repeat value. You can watch it 'N' number of times, without getting bored. Superb Entertainer.
