Story - It is a typical story of Bava-Maradalu. They fall in love and their parents oppose, owing to some previous family rivalries. What happens to the love pair forms the story.
Performances - Nagarjuna looks very charming and did an excellent job. Tabu is nice. Among others, Chapathi Rao, Lakshmi, Chandramohan, Uttej, Brahmaji, Kavitha, Rama Prabha get nice roles and they did very well . The Chemistry between all these actors is so good that many times you may feel that you're actually watching a real family. Rest others are fine.
Music - Music by Nagarjuna's best friend, Sandeep Chowta is excellent. All songs gel well with the film. The Background score is superb too. Wish more people encouraged Sandeep Chowta..!!
Technical Departments - Photography, Editing, Art Work and Dialogues deserve special appreciation. All of them nicely compliment the film.
Story, Direction - Story is nothing new. But, the direction by Krishna Vamsy is fantastic. He brought out right emotions at right moments. His taking is classy. He has a special talent in generating situational humor and he used it to the maximum extent in this film. Except for two romantic tracks, all other songs are canned very well too.
Final Piece - This film sets a bench mark in family entertainers. It has no over melodrama and nonsense heroism. Instead, it is a very realistic one. 80% of the film is filled with funny situations, family gatherings, sweet nothings and nice melodious songs. Literally, the film is like a picnic and a joyful ride. This is one of its kind in Telugu Cinema. Nagarjuna must be appreciated for believing in the story and producing it. His passion for quality movies reflects in the kind of backdrops taken in this movie. It is a must watch for all who love nice family entertainers.
