Lavish melodrama remaking the Hindi hit Phool Aur Kaante (1992) by a director known until then mainly for low-budget films. The teen love story laced with invocations to heroic machismo includes the parallel narrative of the hero’s (Nagarjuna) relationship with his father (Krishna). The scene in which Nagarjuna holds Krishna by his collar led to major protests from the fan clubs of the former Telugu superstar, who placed large advertisements appealing to his audiences to recognise the importance of that scene to the story.
