After huge flops of Nagarjuna, this film gave him a great relief and stand in telugu film industry. Dasarath took lot of care in directing the film. Story is routine but the dialogues are excellent and heart touching. Shreeya is one asset in making success of this film especially her innocent looks. Comedy by Brahmanandam is very nice. He is the one we can say who can create comedy without dialogues. His way of moving head and gear-up in the film makes one to laugh by just watching itself. Songs are nice. One can not recognize that the music director is R.P. Patnayak. Because our telugu people can immediately recognize his songs. But the tunes in this film are completely different from rest of his movies. Singer Usha did well. The song "Ne toli sariga" is the highlight of the film. If any one is feeling boredom just watch this film.
