*downshowrating=1DIRECTOR S Mahender's sentimental family story has a powerful message. He has deftly depicted how a bus conductor faces humiliation from his family for supporting his wife who married him for his simplicity. Though the first half is lively, the second half drags on a bit with unnecessary song sequences and fights.
Raja (Shivaraj Kumar), an honest bus conductor, marries Priya (Gowri), the daughter of Sitaram (Avinash), a rich businessman.
When Priya and Raja try to get settled in life through good financial planning, Raja is suddenly saddled with the responsibility of taking a loan for his step-sister's wedding and step-brother's education. His greedy step-mother (Ashalatha) even lands up in Raja's house after selling her house in the village. Soon, she starts to pick fights with Priya for silly reasons. Raja and Priya go through a bad patch and Priya even leaves Raja to go back to her father's house.
But she eventually realises that gandana mane (husband's house) is where she belongs and decides to reunite with Raja.
It is a treat to watch Shivaraj Kumar's brilliant acting. Gauri is excellent and Avinash is in fine form. B A Madhu's dialogues and camerawork by Sundarnath Suvarna are added attractions. V Manohar's music is pleasant.
