(Venkatesh) is sent as bodyguard for Varadarajula Naidu (Prakash Raj)
by the head of a Security Agency (Tanikella Bharani). Later, Naidu appoints Venkatadri
to be the bodyguard of his daughter, Keerthi (Trisha),
as she has a life-threat from Siva Reddy (Kota Srinivasa
Rao), who wants to kill her because he believes that
she is responsible for his son's murder by Varadarajula
Naidu. Meanwhile, Keerthi continues her education in
a college and her bodyguard Venkatadri follows her as
part of his duty. Keerthi wants to play a game with Venkatesh and she starts making phone calls through a
private number. Gradually, Venkatadri too, makes
friendship with that unknown caller and later he starts to love her. However,
he doesn't know that the caller is none other than Keerthi.
The story takes many turns as Keerthi really falls in
love with Venkatadri. She shares all her feelings with
her friend Swathi (Saloni).
Rest of the story takes some more turns and it will be interesting to watch
whether Venkatadri finally recognizes the unknown
caller and whether he marries her or not.
Venkatesh: Venkatesh as
usually came up with cool and dignified performance. He is a perfect fit for the
bodyguard getup. In love and emotional scenes, he performed aesthetically. His
performance in lady getup generated good humor in theaters.
Trisha: Once again she got
elevated through her ingenious performance. Her elegant looks in songs like, 'Emo..emo..',
'Adugaduguna' were mesmerizing. She was sexy in
transparent sarees in songs.
should have been given at least one song. Prakash Raj
was usual. Ali generated hilarious comedy. Venu Madhav was enough. Kota and Subbaraju
Music: Music director Thaman came up with beautiful melodious songs this time.
Songs like, 'Evvaro', 'Emo..emo..endukanee' and 'Adugaduguna'
were good. 'Bodyguard' title song was okay. Background score was classy.
Background locations in the songs were beautiful.
Story, Screenplay And Direction: This is a soft and sensitive love story. The
director has come up with slow narration as he might have thought that the
subject needs it. Climax was good as it was filled with some twists and
sentiment. The movie might attract families but might fail to attract the
masses due to the old and traditional way of screenplay.
* The story of this
movie reminds us the movies like, 'Hello I love you', 'Premalekha'
and Shahrukh's 'Kuch Kuch Hotha Hai'.
* In one of the
scenes, Venkaetsh and Ali danced for the song, 'Poovai poovai' from 'Dookudu' in woman getups. The scene generated hilarious
comedy and audience response was superb.
* In one of the
scenes, Ali reads 'Private Number' as 'Parvathi Nambiyaar'. It generated good humor.
