Unlike `Eddelu Manjunatha,' which was mostly based on funny dialogues, director Guruprasad has chosen a serious story of an orphan boy who aspires to build a family to lead a happy life. He brings strangers home so that they he can have a family of his own. But his efforts fail as they look for the money he had kept at home at the cost of relationship.
With a good script and narration, director Guruprasad has done a good job by weaving the story that has comedy, sentiment, attachment and detachment in life. The story is foucssed on Dhananjaya (Dhananjaya), an orphan, who brings home Panche Sastry alias Ramachandra (Rangayana Raghu) to be his father, Seethamma (Vatsala Mohan) to be his mother and Gayathri (Sumitra Devi) as his sister. He already has at home Hanuma ('Ramya Chiatra Kala' Ram), a mentally retarded person, to be his elder brother.
Dhananjaya brings Rs 52 lakh home earned from playing cards. Ramachandra, Seethamma and Gayathri hatch a plan to share the amount. The story takes a curious turn here when we come to know that Hanuma is not mentally retarted, but a normal person. All the four hatch a plan to kill Dhananjaya for the money and share it later. Suddenly, we come to know that the four are the characters created by director Guruprasad to drive home the point that relationships break for money.
But the four want their characters changed so that the story ends on a positive note. Does the director agree to it? Dhananjaya has done remarkably well in his debut movie. Vatsala Mohan shines in a typical hosewife's role. Sumitra Devi is impressive. But Rangayana Raghu beats others with his brilliant portrayal of Panche Shastry (Ramachandra). Pooja Gandhi appears in a dance sequel to the poem Kannalle Yeshtothu Nekthiya. Anup Sileen has given a good background music. Camera by Mahendra Simha and editing by B S Kepmeraju are positive points in the movie.
