There has been enormous change for better in the director of films like Sixer, Moggina Manasu, Krishnan Love Story, Bachchan and Jarasandha – Shashank. He has very rightly and tightly understood the pulse of masses in giving a very convincing first and second half is emotional. Yet the film pruned for 15 minutes and words like ‘Bewarsi’ are deleted it is further interesting for complete family audience.
It is a musical and poverty stricken story in ‘Krishna Leela’. A cab driver who carries children to school is childlike in his attitudes. One of the calls he receives on mobile continue his chat. So Krishna and Leela are mobile friends. The family of Krishna is below middle class with drunkard father two sisters and mother. The family of Leela is with parents.
One of the telephonic chat Leela with Krishna disturb the whole situation. Krishna is produced in police station where the inspector takes hasty decision. Leela not found in her house appear in police station. She is in a piquant situation gives her opinion that she is in love with Krishna. That is enough for inspector to take a decision on marriage of Krishna and Leela.
Krishna is not interested in this marriage because there is already a match for him that is Sindhu Lokanath. One statement of Leela and the frequent chat Krishna makes obviously lead him to such a situation.
Rest you have to watch in the theatre. Krishna Ajai Rao, Mayoori, Achyuth Kumar and others have given their best in performance. In fact Krishna Ajai Rai has given his best so far. In delivery of dialogues and action he steals the show.
Mayoori is like a chaco bar ice cream in looks. Shekar Chandra has given memorable moments on the screen. The lyrics in this film and dialogues are in top order.
Sridhar Sambram has lifted the film with four lovely tunes. The background score is also interest.
For the audience ‘Krishna Jayanthi’ festival has come months in advance. It is a film filled with variety.
