This film deals with the story of youngsters who yearn to realize their dreams when fate plays spoilsport and makes it harder for the youngsters to reach their goal
Shyam (Rahul), an orphan lives in a rented room in the home of Maruthi Rao (Gollapudi) whose grand-daughter Kamala (Sindhu Menon) is a painter by occupation. Swapna (Sonal Chauhan) wants to become a film heroine to fulfill the wishes of her late father.
Shyam helps Swapna by joining her in an acting school. When she was about to make her debut, Shyam meets with an accident. The rest of the film deals with how they combat the forces of destiny to realize their dream.
Rahul is below par in his performance. Sonal Chauhan gives out a spirited performance, while Sindhu Menon did very well as a mute girl. The comedy troupe fails to deliver. All other actors are just adequate in their roles.
The storyline is innovative and different from the routine trend. But the screenplay fails to grip the attention of the audience. The dialogues are good, but the comedy scenes are a damp squib. Choreography, cinematography and audiography are above average.. Music is passable.
This is a case of a good story not made to capture the attention and interest of the audience.
