The essence of family relations is always the key aspect for any human being and it has now become the key for many film makers too given the successful response they get from the audience. Now, here is one film that revolves around the bondage between father and daughter.
Raghuram (Prakashraj) and Sudhakar (Jagapathi Babu) happen to be visitors of the same park but come for different reasons. While the senior aged Raghuram comes for his exercises and jogging, Sudhakar comes there along with his two year old daughter who loves to play in the children's play zone. As expected, both of them get the chance to catch up with a chat and it is here that Raghuram shares his experiences as a girl's father. It all starts from the time his daughter Abhi (Trisha) is born and till the day she gets married and leaves the place. Raghuram also reveals the time when Abhi falls in love and things get a bit complicated and emotional. How does Sudhakar react to all that and how good is Raghuram's story forms the rest of the tale.
Jagapathi Babu has done justice to his brief role while Trisha carried out role with aplomb, Aishwarya was there but nothing special about her. Ganesh Venkatraman was also neat, a stunning performance from Thalaivasal Vijay who came with an astonishing performance. Venkatraman was effective but the real showstealer was Prakashraj who came out with a powerhouse performance and showed the different emotions as a father in such impressive manner. The others were about okay.
The dialogues were crisp, the script was written without any complications and the screenplay was apt. Full marks go to the camera department for coming up with some breathtaking locations and also a very colorful presentation on the screen which was a viewer's delight. Music could have been better and there is only one song that really worked well. Editing was the key highlight and that contributed a lot in the success of the film. Costumes were trendy and the locations were remarkable. The art department was neat.
The director has come up with an emotional subject and though the bondage has been portrayed several times, he has been good at handling the script and presenting it. though his narration stuttered at few instances, his presentation was worth it and that way, though it is a semi-dubbed movie, the flavor of the Telugu movie was more than the original.
The film happens to be a wake up call for those fathers who have daughters and also those daughters who fail to understand their father's hearts. While the first half moves about in a rather humorous manner with the jokes and comedy, the second half was more touching with the sentiment and melodrama. There are no mass elements in the movie and so the front benchers may not relish it that much. However, the family audiences will have a neat time and this sure is a refresher for this summer.
Good, tender watcher for the family audience. Strongly recommended
