Life couldn't have been better for RJ Varma, having fun talking to listeners, going the extra mile with girls who took a fancy for him. The celebrity status came as a bonus. The fun runs out when an unshakeable burden walks in through the door in the form of a 20-year-old girl who doggedly claims to be his daughter. If the torment was not enough, she comes with additional baggage - her little son. And he is a pest - addressing him as grandfather much to Warma's discomfiture.
:The wayward Rao Gopal Warma (Vennela Kishore) faces a wall. A song describes his entire nature. If that reminds you of a certain someone, it is not him, we are told at the beginning of the movie itself. Let's move on with Warma who is at sea on how to handle this peculiar situation in his life. Surely, as youthful as his looks still are, it is possible that he is not even married, leave alone having a grown-up daughter, and he even being a grandfather!
Deeksha (Naveena Jackson) tells him bluntly that she has come to stay with him. He'd rather push out the mother and child as he suspects the stranger Deeksha has come with an evil plan to grab his money property. The agonising matter is settled through a DNA test for which Deeksha more than willingly agrees. The test is performed by a friend of Warma himself. The shocking result is Warma is indeed the father of Deeksha and her son Lovely (Master Veeren) is the grandson.
The movie is about how difficult it is for Warma, who does not believe in the institution of marriage itself, to accept his `family'. In the later part of the movie, Deeksha reminds him about a brief fling that he had when he was just a teenager with a girl. Warma is now given more than just the DNA proof. She is their love child. To add another twist to the tale, the girl reveals she was the anonymous Bengali girl who used to call up on his show and share her personal problems with the RJ and her desire to go to her father and that he should accept her.
Director Khaja explores a subject that is not of the routine nature. It describes emotions that are more valuable than riches. Perhaps it is not something that can be called a popular subject but it sure can be described as meaningful cinema. Veenela Kishore as RJ could have been more bubbly but gets into the skin of his role otherwise. A stern looking expression is what Naveena Jackson has most of the time but turns child-like when she is playing with her child. Kavitha Aaras is captivating in being Warma's love interest. Roja plays a TV journalist `Ganga' teaming up with her cameraman Rambabu (Jogi Naidu).
If something is going to make you laugh in the film it is the way Mater Veeren greets the irritated young grandfather saying `Namaskaram Thathayya'. Looks like the kid's got it in his DNA to act.
