The Synopsis

Kalyan (Sarwanand) is one of those arrogant guy who does not bother about anything in life except his own selfish pleasures. He moves with his gang of renegades and indulges in all kinds of silly things in a self centered way.

Kalyan’s elder brother Chakravarthy (Mohan Babu) is a very rich businessman who is good hearted and generous. He leads a contented life with his wife Ramya (Ramya Krishna). Both Chakravarthy and Ramya dote on Kalyan and look askance at his irregular behavior.

Kalyan has a chance encounter with Sneha (Surveen Chawla) and falls in love with her, but she rejects his romantic overtures. Kalyan is dejected and withdraws into a depressive state of mind. His sister-in-law Ramya takes initiative and requests Sneha to act friendly with Kalyan and she does so. In that process she develops a soft corner for him.

Then in an incident of rash driving, Kalyan’s commits a fatal accident in which a man dies on the spot. The story takes a sentimental turn from here onwards. Who is the person who died in the accident? After a series of sentimental and melodramatic incidents followed by sacrifices, Kalyan is on the road to become a responsible citizen.

The Performances

Mohan Babu and Ramya Krishna perform well but they look odd in the melodramatic scenes. Sarwanand tries his best but not upto the mark. Surveen Chawla has potential. Tashu Koushik sizzles and fills the glamour portion. All the comedians do what they are doing in every film. The character actors are adequate in their roles.

The Techniques

The story has the potential to become a good film if proper care is taken to etch the characters and conceive the incidents to infuse credibility. Mohan Babu and Ramya Krishna with their fiery screen images do not really fit into soft roles. The screenplay is jerky and the dialogues are shoddy.

Cinematography is the only redeeming feature. Music is average and nothing to remember for long. All other technical departments are OK but fade into insignificance because of a weak story and an overdose of melodrama.

The Verdict

Raju Maharaju is for the ardent followers of tear-jerking TV serials who lap up melodrama and oversized sentimentality. Who goes to a theatre to cry?
