In the first half we are introduced to Chai(Varun Tej) who is living in Spain with his parents while his Grandapa Pichiah Naidu (Nasaar) is a typical Villager living along the Andhra Karnataka border. Now in Chai like a fresh breeze comes a lissome girl Meera (Hebah Patel) who is visting Spain. Chai mistakes her friendship for love but the girl already has a boyfriend in the background. And when she reveals it to Chai he is disappointed but in the best tradition of Tollywood movies the next instant he recovers and shows his big heart. But wait there is a twist! Her boy friend is a wimp and when Meeras elder brother threatens him he thinks it is better to keep his bones intact than test the power of love. Good common sense!
Now Meera is disappointed, but just why she feels so much for a wimp is not clear. But love is love. So She seeks Chais help in setting matters right when he arrives to his native village. There he meets a demure Chandramukhi (Lavanya Triphathi).
Experienced movie goers must know what happens next without telling them. But for the record the rest of the movie is how he tackles the problem of the two ladies.
Coming to performance Varun Tej has done his role well. His expressions and body language are spot on. Unlike the senior actors the present generation of actors do not believe in overacting. But his fighting skills need to improve and so also his dance steps, which are a bit awkward. Hebah Patel is so glamorous looking that if is she can’t act that can be forgiven. Lavanya Triphathi pales in comparison with Hebbah Patel.
The first half of the movie is like a thrilling 20-20 match while the second half is like test cricket heading towards a dull draw. Some of the song are shot very well. Director Srinu Vytla is in his element in the first half but the same cannot be said for the second half. The track with Layanya Tripathi who is supposed to be successor of Krishna Devaraya is a big yawn. There are too many villains running around in the second half. Go for the movie if you have nothing better to do. It is just a time-pass movie.
