Story, screenplay, dialogues and Directed by: N Seetharam
Release Date: July 01, 2005

Here comes another amateurish and silly product from veteran producer D Ramanaidu’s Sri Suresh Productions. Tepid narration, no coherence in the scene format makes the audiences look for immediate exit doors. Except for good songs (by Srilekha) and excellent cinematography by Sarath, there is nothing much to write about the film.


Anu (Sridevi), a rich businessman’s (Naga Babu) daughter, is highly sensitive. In a practical joke, a jealous classmate of hers Monika sends wrong message to her father that she is about to elope with a boyfriend. Her father takes it seriously and locks her in a remote farmhouse situated amidst a forest. Meanwhile, Ravindra (Aryan Rajesh), a good for nothing guy, lands in that farmhouse to escape from police. After a futile kidnap drama and silly moral classes taken by Anu, our hero becomes good man and unites the daughter and father in the end.


In every scene you get a feeling of déjà vu. Uninspiring screenplay laced with a joke-scene-song-sentiment format, Neerikshana looks a forced love story. Actually Aryan Rajesh’ character is very villainous till the end of the climax and there is no love between the lead characters but it has been treated as a love story. Out of the blue dream songs appear, for every 5 minutes a vulgar joke sequence goes on.

Aryan Rajesh is okay but he looks out of sync with the film. Sridevi looks cute but her character is half-baked one. Ali, Daramavarapu, Jyothi and all other seem okay.

Srilekha, the master of lifting songs, delivers lilting music, carefully lifting hit tunes from Tamil films. Sarath’s cinematography, particularly picturisation of songs, is fantastic.

On the whole, avoidable film.
