Gautham, who has been kidnapped, ends up recounting his three trysts with love to kidnapper Gejje Kesari. There's Ramya, Kavya and Nithya, the third who he loves the most. Does he find a happily ever after?
This is the remake if the Telugu

That given, this was a readymade platter that veteran director Sadhu Kokila had to ensure aspirant Sumanth Shailendra Babu finally gets that one superhit that catapults him to big league.

The story is simple, the protagonist is on the way to ensure he stops the love of his life from marrying someone else. He is kidnapped and he ends up recounting his different experiences with love and women to the kidnapper. Only during the interval do we realize the kidnapper has caught the wrong 'marriage-breaker'.

When it comes to performances, Shanvi Srivastava takes the cake, as she stands tall in mediocrity at most times. Sumalatha is the other saving grace, as the hero's mother. Sumanth is showing improvement as an actor with each
Given the budget, script and crew, this could have been a potential winner, but it barely manages to make it to the finish line. Since the original story was appealing, this can be a one time watch, if you really are keen on making that trip to the screens.
