For two hours twelve minutes, Subramanyam Sastry (Dileep Kumar) suffers pining for a girl who instantly falls in love with. So, you suffer with him. Your suffering becomes more than his. You get relief from the trauma you endure through the film only after Sastry eventually gets the girl, who he so much wants to marry. Sastry is happy. We wish we did not poke our nose into his affairs.
: If you think Sastry has been heroic in his attempts to reach out to Ayesha (Priya Gor), no, he was not. Repeat: No, he wasn't. What are passed off as showing his daring nature, is simply resorting to the silly.
Finally when it appears impossible to gain her, he seems to reconcile himself to the situation as he is shown sitting all by himself at the seaside. And does the girl do anything heroic herself to convince her family about the boy from a different religious background who is interested in her? Precious little. It is only because of the dramatic and unexpected intervention of Ayesha's father that the movie has a happy ending - for Ayesha, Sastry and the police who help him. Your own trauma ends.
Why does Sastry love the Muslim girl so much? Like in all other Telugu films, it is just the first look. So you've got friends helping him. Helping her. He meets her. Shivers to explain his love for her. Finally does. But the next thing we see is that he's still trying to gain her attention. The script went topsy-turvy somewhere. And you find yourself nowhere, groping in the dark to figure out what on earth is happening on the screen.
At the outset, an announcement is made that the movie has no intentions of hurting the religious sentiments of anyone. It won't until one chooses to take offense. Ayesha and her sister feel their religion and elders have bound them, literally ruining their lives. The censors should have taken care to see that something that had the potential to become objectionable was not allowed in the movie.
This movie tests your patience and gets on to your nerves. If you love challenges, accept this. If you shy away from this challenge, you are simply being wise.
