Lucky (Nani) is a scientist who suffers from a rare condition. He forgets things as soon as his mind gets diverted at the snap of fingers. One such forgetful moment brings Nandana (Lavanya Tripathi) into his life. Nandana mistakes him for a do-gooder and from then on their love story begins. Even as Nani tries to hide his forgetfulness, he realizes that Nandana is the daughter of Pandu Ranga Rao (Murali Sharma) who dislikes him for being irresponsible. Lavanya Tripathi plays the quintessential heroine and thankfully she does not have any melodramatic scenes. Most of the times, she manages with her heavily dimpled smile and has a good screen presence. Not much of a character as Nani gets the major chunk, but she does manage to keep it simple and straight. The surprise package of the film is Murali Sharma who gets the writer- backed role and he plays dad to the heroine. Breaking away from the norm of playing baddie, he plays the father and he too puts in a convincing performance. Naresh and Sitara play parents to Lucky and they fit their roles perfectly. Then there is Praveen and Vennela Kishore, both of whom get to play friends of Lucky. Highlights: Nani Music Breezy First Half Drawbacks: A couple of scenes plugged in here and there The story is kept simple by Maruthi which works for the film and makes it a decent time-pass watch with a good number of fun moments sprinkled through out.
