Shouryam movie fame Siva Kumar directing this movie under producer Burugupalli Shiva Rama Krishna banner. Vijay Antony scored music for this movie.

With Raviteja’s recent flicks ending up as debacle at box-office, let’s see whether Daruvu brings much needed hit for Mass Maharaja. Tapsee is the heroine. Siva is the director and writer. This socio-fanatasy flick is produced by Burugupalli Siva Rama Krishna under Sri Venkateswara Entertainments banner. Vijay Anthony has scored the music for this movie. Ramesh Gopi and Anil Ravipudi penned the dialogues and Gautham Raju handled the editing department. Let us see how this flick fares..

Story and Analysis:

1st Half:

*Movie starts with visual of Senior NTR and Junior NTR. This brings delight to Nandamuri fans.
*In the first 40 minutes, there is nothing special, only saving part is Raviteja mark comedy and 2 songs.
*Story proceeds in lines of hit films ‘Yamagola’ and ‘Yamadonga’, making it too predictable and nothing novel to offer.
*Annoyed with Yama, Chitraguptha ends life of Raviteja, despite not completing his expected lifetime.
*Movie progresses with some good comedy in parts & interesting scenes in an outstanding set of Yamalokam.
*As Raviteja’s body is burnt, Yama tries to place him among one of the seven men around the globe, who are similar in looks to him.
*Raviteja disagrees to go to earth in the body of one china person who is similar to him, but a terrorist.
*5 more persons are rejected, for different reasons. These scenes are too predictable.
*Finally Raviteja accepts to go into body of one more guy similar to him, who will be dying in some days and is also a home minister. This guy is basically a baddie, but is about to transform as good person.
*Jayasuda is the mother of home minster. She did her usual acting in mother role.
*A small incident changes him as good person and he decides to distribute money to people. But his partners kill him. Hero -Raviteja’s soul goes into his body.
*Raviteja honors Sr. NTR name.
*A scene leads to Interval
2nd half:

*Raviteja, who is now into home minister’s body, does good service to people.
*Brahmanandham makes an entry as Vidyabalan! With his signature expressions, Brahmi broughts much needed laughs.
*Amusingly, name of Brahmi assistant is Nitya Menon!
*Heroine Tapsee’s brother-in-law tries to marry her. As expected, Raviteja tries to prevent it.
*Story proceeds with one more song and a fight.
*Home minister Raviteja captures politicians’ money and does social service.
*Hero tries to eradicate corruption. If anyone tries to take bribe, he asks to take video and MMS it!
*After many scenes, Tapsee makes a comeback for a song.
*Yesteryear Sobhan babu’s photo is put in home minister Raviteja’s house. Probably to show him as Jayasudha’s husband.
*Predictably, it’s time for home minister Raviteja to die.
*All villains, except Tapsee’s brother-in-law, turn in favor of hero, taking advantage of climatic liberties. This is to showcase him as main villain.
*Hero will be shot!
*Everyone prays God for Raviteja’s life. Cinematically, a small kid too wishes so.
*As, even a just born kid wishes Hero to be alive, Yama doesn’t take Hero’s life!!!
*Movie ends, as Raviteja remains alive!


Okkokkadiki pu pu pu pu pu pucchelu pagilipothayi

Nenu soft ga unte Vidya Balan … Kopam vasthe Roudra Balan

Kummu Bullet Raja kummu okkokkadiki pagilipovali


First half has not much content to offer, except for some predictable story, in lines of films Yamagola and Yamadonga, Raviteja mark comedy and Tapsee’s glamour in songs.
Second half has more scenes with Raviteja doing social service. Too many cinematic liberties are taken, with not much gripping and predictable story. With this formula flicks already became hits and well-known to all, Daruvu has mediocre chance to become a hit, as it has nothing novel to offer!

With a blockbuster flick GabbarSingh already running in theatres and many big films lined up in coming days, chances for Daruvu to make its strong mark are very low.
