Best from RGV till date
If one thought 'Shiva' brought in a refreshing change to Telugu Film Industry - a trend setter, and a cult film - well this one betters that, and has RGV class written all over it.
The way the story starts with 'unimportant' characters, waits for a while until he introduces his main characters, doing away with long boring routine dialogues, and instead introducing the regular jargon that we use in a day-to-day life (which we notice in all RGV films), the funny conversation between Chandu (Venkatesh) and Satya (Sridevi)......everything about this movie is just perfect.
This movie is very special to me because, I being a big-time fan of RGV, Sridevi and Venkatesh (more because I was tired of Chiru and Balakrishna) and was fresh out of school and experiencing my new found 'freedom', I watched this movie a zillion times. Only other Telugu movie that I have watched on more occasions is 'Sagara Sangamam'.
Watch out for Paresh Rawal!! He sizzles through his role. Everything about him is funny - his funny moustache (there is a gap between each side of his moustache which makes him like a modern day caricature of Chengiz Khan), his Telugu accent, the way he sings a song and asks one of his cronies to guess what song it was, and how he despite being a ring-leader depends on his cronies for 'help' for small things - like he is afraid to cross an old bridge in the jungle and asks one of his cronies to lead him across the river, or how he keeps pestering them with questions when we think that he being the ring-leader should be one step above them!! Sridevi as an innocent lady but with some attitude, Venkatesh as a petty thief, do awesome job.
Bramhanandam's cameo and great music by Keeravani add value to this movie. In fact all numbers in this movie are catchy and have been super-hits. Must watch film if you haven't!!!!! I give 10/10 for its quality entertainment, devoid of any cheap comedy!!!
