Story : Plain geometry tells us that two parallel lines never intersect. The girl has her own line of thinking and is mighty convinced about it. Never. Never will she marry an NRI. The boy has a parallel conviction. He is excited that he has finally settled abroad. But what if there is chemistry between them, can it prove basic geometry wrong?

Movie Review : More than Hari (Rohit Kalia), his mother is more excited about her son settling abroad in Australia and is too eager to boast about it with her neighbours and relatives. Hari indeed feels it is a better life out there, though his father would rather want him to come back so that the family can live together.

In another family, Mayuka (Sravya Reddy) has become somewhat of a pain to her parents. When every other girl would rather that she goes abroad and finds bliss with an NRI husband, she wants to stay put in India, and share a good relationship with her family, friends and relatives.

They trick her into agreeing to marry Hari, who she is informed, would come back to India in a couple of months to get married and stay back. There's a bit of romance, song and dance but just as love is blooming, Hari informs her as a matter-of-fact that he does not intend to come back to live in India, though he would definitely marry her. Mayuka is not prepared. Hari goes back to Australia and there is a break in the relationship. Will the two parallel lines every meet?

The intention of the director, as we understand, is that NRIs should return. But then in a song, it is made clear that it is only to encourage those who want to come back, that they should.

It is not fair to be harsh in dissecting the movie, which on the face of it, has some good intention behind it. So, if one finds a repetition of a crucial bit of information in two different scenes as if it was being revealed for the first time, ignore the lapse. If you think Sravya's make-up should have concealed her pimples, don't make a fuss about it. And if at times, you feel several of the scenes are unnecessary and not quite funny especially those involving `Sydney Seenaiah', how can you help it anyway!

Anyway, the movie shows the harsh reality offshore for some youngsters who go abroad and take up small jobs to sustain themselves.

Mimicry artist Siva Reddy does what he is good at mimicking politicians including M Satyanarayana Rao, N Chandrababu Naidu and K Chandrasekhar Rao. But it would be much better if he stuck to the stage where he has control over his performance based on the response he gets on his audience. Here, his mimicry does not evoke any laughter and his performance appears stale.

One just might get to take a liking for the music and the lyrics of especially the opening song on why one has no option but to think of going abroad.

Note : There's a beginning and hardly what you can call an ending for the film. If it's 'nowhere', then why go there anyway?
