4.25 / 5.0



The movie that paired up Venkatesh and Soundarya is a sensation on screen. The execution by the movie actors and the sentimental scenes in the movie are a great asset to the movie. Let’s delve into the movie now. 


Venkatesh has just come back from the US, and he does not have knowledge or curiosity to know the greatness of Indian values and marriage traditions.  SPB comes into the scene as Venkatesh’s father and he want his son to enter the wedlock.  Soundarya works as a Personal Secretary to SPB. Her family difficulties and financial constraints force her to enter wedlock with Venkatesh. But, the marriage is just a one-year agreement says, Venkatesh.  Further, he says that after the one year time, the marriage may be terminated.  Soundarya hesitates but later gives in.  The one-year marriage progresses smoothly. But, no sooner than the year is over, Venkatesh says that the agreement is over.  The remaining movie portrays how Venkatesh realizes the greatness of Indian tradition and whether the marriage between the two is set alright.

Star Performances:  
Venkatesh fits into the shoes of a foreign-returned guy and portrays the emotions finely during the latter half of the movie. Soundarya has done full justice to her role as a middle- class woman. SPB has responsibly done the role of a father. The comedy track maintained by Subhalekha Sudhakar and Brahmanandam is a great respite in the otherwise emotional movie like this.


The plot has been woven by Bhupathi Raja and came out as a stark contrast to the movie plots during the decade of 90’s. The dialogues by Posani Krishna Murali are good. Also, the editor Krishna Murali has made the movie look crisp. Director Muthyala Subbaiah has done his part well.

What is there?

The movie actors have done their job well. 
The screenplay, direction and script get along well.
The numbers are a solace to the ears. 

What is not there?

The positives compensate for the minor flaws. 


A fine sentimental movie that will strike the right chord with the audiences.
