Sandhya (Kajal) is in love with Karthik (Ravi). She's shocked to find out that Karthik is a divorcee when she confesses her love to him.
When Karthik proposes marriage, Sandhya decides to get married to her cousin Gautham (Nara Rohit) instead.
: Seems like the filmmakers are genuinely concerned with the rising divorce rates in the country. "Love isn't a good enough to get married. For a marriage to last a lifetime, the couple must understand each other completely, and true love begins only after marriage!" That's the noble relationship advice this rom-com propounds, pinpointing that "the lack of understanding" is the root cause of marriages falling apart. So much for the gyan, but sadly the movie seems to have nothing else to offer.
It all begins in Italy where Sandhya is a student (it's not clear what she's studying) based in Italy. She runs into Karthik days before going back to home and she's smitten - love at first sight! The two happen to board the same plane going back and thus begins their love story. But then she's shattered to when Karthik confesses that he's already married and that he's on his way back home to get done with the legal formalities.
Enroute, Karthik decides to let her in on his sob story dating back three years. That's when Vasu (Richa) steps as the camera cuts to Ooty. Soon after the flashback ends comes the twist in the tale. Sandhya discovers that Karthik wasn't entirely honest about his past and she leaves him fuming when he proposes marriage! Her parents decide to get her married to her cousin, Gautham who's madly in love with her since he can remember.
With such tried and tested plots you really need some crackling humor and incredible on screen chemistry, sadly this movie has neither. Mass Maharaja, Ravi Teja seems to have tried to break away from the mould and tried to do something underplayed, subtle and classy this time around. But the character is too poorly conceived, styled and executed to have any impact whatsoever. And quite frankly Ravi Teja looks out of depth and perhaps it's time to think about playing his age and he really needs a new stylist. Kajal Aggarwal does her thing as does Richa, but neither makes much of an impact.
The music by Devi Sri Prasad is just as unremarkable as the rest of the movie. The writing, humor, editing and packaging all look too cliched and to make matters worse there seems to me more philosophizing than any real romance. It all looks a little too daft in the end.
