She feels that the guy fills the space of her lost son. Meanwhile, the youngster Vishwa falls in love with Padma, who was waiting for her childhood lover. Vishwa understands her situation and leaves her. Did the mother find her real son? Did Vishwa’s love succeed? Watch it in theaters. 

Star Performance

Shruti… what a performance! She proves her versatility in each and every role, she chooses. Others had done their part quite well.


Yogesh Master is the all-in-all of the film. He has penned the screenplay, directed the film and composed the songs too. However, not all these departments are shining well. Yogesh Master could have concentrated a bit more in other characters too. He had characterized Shruti’s part, pretty well. His narration is excellent.

What’s There?

  • Shruti… Shruti and Shruti….
  • Narration by Yogesh Master is good
  • The sentiments make the eyes wet

What’s Not There?

  • Poor editing makes us feel that the film is some decades old
  • Music irritates the ears


This film has Shruti’s exemplary performance. If it was taken in a good budget and with sound technicians, Shruti’s performance would have got more value. However, this film is worth watching only for the stunning performance of the experienced Shruti.
