Prasad Productions, which has a glorious past in the Telugu film industry, has come up with a meaningful and humanistic film. Director Raj Madiraju brought out the film Rishi in such a way that the film could be screened in film festivals and at the same time it has lots of commercial values too. Read on for the review.
Rushi (Aravind Krishna) is pursuing his medical education. He believes in practical thinking and is a straight-forward man. He loses his heart to his classmate Pooja(Supriya Shailaja). Though Pooja rejects him in the beginning, she too starts loving him later, as Pooja realises that he is pursuing the doctor course not for money but to serve the people. The first half of the entire film runs in the college backdrop and is full of entertainment.
As the first half is coming to an end, the hero comes across a young boy named Karthik (Master Gaurav) who is battling for his life. Rushi is not a qualified doctor yet starts treatment and everyone start criticising him for taking the initiative. However, Rushi discusses with his friends about the boy’s disease and he expresses his doubt that Karthik needs heart transplant. Surprisingly, a panel of senior doctors who examine Karthik opine the same. Now, Rushi, Puja and his friends start searching for a donor. They are looking for either brain-dead or accident victims. At this juncture, the director has inserted a twist. The remaining part should be seen on-screen.
