Synopsis: The dog and the diamond, and the romantic life of Raja (Sharwanand) and his lady love Ammu (Surbhi) in comical situations.

Movie Review: Dog. Diamond. Drink. This entertainer revolves around these three. Oh yes, there's a lead pair too and comedy stuff that will tickle your funny bone. This does not mean that it is a laugh riot because the dependence on the little bottle to generate additional humour falls flat sometimes. Nevertheless, there is more to the film than that.

The dog and the diamond, and the romantic life of Raja (Sharwanand) and his lady love Ammu (Surbhi) in comical situations. The fact of the matter is that Raja hates dogs. And Ammu cannot think of life without her dear dog. The tricky question arises when she has to decide between Raja and pet dog.

The opening scene tricks you but that's how the director Melapaka Gandhi leads you into the narrative. Crucial to the entire movie is comedian Dhanraj's role and as rightly introduced to the screen, he's got no direct relation to the story. All that he's interested in doing is stealing iron. And most certainly, he steals the show with hardly having any dialogue to utter.

Raja falls in love with Ammu. The audience too falls in love with her because she beats the villains to pulp - of all things with a dictionary. A major portion of the film is about her pet dog which first gets stolen, is sold off, resold and goes missing. But why so much fuss about the pet dog? The first thing is because Ammu loves her pet dog and since Raja loves Ammu, he's got to see that she gets back her pet.

Another reason why tracing out the pet dog is important is that it is worth Rs 75 cr. Yes, Rs 75 crore. You'll find out why as the film progresses.

Director Melapaka Gandhi cooks up a festive treat with the characters just falling in place. As the mother of an aspiring MLA, actress Oorvasi gets transformed into a young girl under comic circumstances.

Sharwanand, who's already proven his mettle as an actor, gets under the skin of his character and he is totally at ease. Would it have been better if he worked on his facial expressions a bit? The director is boss. There are a couple of songs that are quite striking. Though the cinematography, at some places, seems to be a letdown, or in some specific scenes, it indeed is a treat.

Prabhas Seenu as Raja's friend is apt in his role but look out for Saptagiri. He's got it in him to make you laugh.
