Harsha is an NRI. He visits India to get married in a short time. His family had chosen a few brides; among them is Vibha. While consolidating, his family rejects her, and at the same time, she is also not much interested in the marriage. But, Harsha likes her much. What does he do to impress Vibha and convince his family to get her married? This is what the rest of the story deals with.

Star Performance

Akhil is good in his role. He seems to be better in comedy and romance than in his previous movies. He looks comfortable in this genre. Pooja Hegde has picked a good role. Besides glamor, she had also been given a fleshy role to do. Pragathi is impressive in her role. Murli Sharma is given the regular father role, and he has done it well as usual. The rest of the stars are okayish in the assigned roles.


The story is not very special, yet good. The screenplay is pretty decent and moves well in the first half. However, it is predictable. The second half is not much interesting while comparing the first half. The romance and comedy scenes are okayish. The music and cinematography teams have done their job well. With a huge star cast, the director should have used them well. A few stars are not given solid roles; however, their presence adds some credit to the film.

What’s There?

  • The chemistry between Akhil and Pooja
  • The film is technically sound

What’s Not There?

  • The second half should have been shot better
  • The story is much predictable


It is a youth entertainer with expected elements. Akhil has done an excellent job, and hopefully, he will move a step ahead in his career with this film. MEB - Watchable once!
