Whatever be the story, its movement, screenplay or the directorial capability of MS Narayana, he kept the tagline to his film's title (Yevarikaina Vaayistaaru) in a very apt manner. He made the audiences to face his wrath without any hesitation. It is okay that every artist wants to see his son as a hero to continue his legacy. For that purpose, the artist need not turn a director for himself, despite knowing the fact that he could not wield the megaphone. In order to glorify a person as a hero, there should be some perfect subject and the person directing the film should have good knowledge on how he is presenting it on the screen. 'Bhajantreelu' neither has a worthy story, nor has any good movement.
Two brothers Sivaji (Sivaji) and Vikram (Savyasachi) kidnap a girl Sushmita (Sushmita), daughter of Kota Srinivasa Rao (Kota Srinivasa Rao), a rich man, as they need money for an important purpose, when she was about to get married to Venu (Venumadhav), of course against her wishes. After kidnap, she falls in love with Sivaji. Incidentally, they live in a colony called working men's hostel. Later, Kota employs a team called Black Dogs to search for his daughter. Venu also goes in search of his bride. Bhagawan (Krishna Bhagawan) informs Venu about his fiancee that she was with Sivaji and Vikram. After making a vain bid, Venu also employs two teams, Korada Veerudu (Sunil) and Pistol Veerudu (Brahmanandam) to search Sivaji and Vikram. Accidentally, Vikram saves a girl called Sivani (Sivani) from a woman-trafficker. She accompanies Vikram. Then, the colony people ask them why they need money and what made them to kidnap the girl. Then comes the flashback wherein they reveal that they need money to get their sister the eyesight, which she has lost in an accident which costs around Rs 10 lakhs. Sushmita tries to get the money from her father, but could not get it. Vikram meets a police officer (Ponnambalam) who agrees to arrange the money with a condition that he has to go to jail in place of a thug (Jeeva). The film ends with a happy note with both the pairs get united. Though this is the basic story, the director failed to present it on the screen.
PLUS: There are absolutely no plus points in the film. Though a few scenes get smile to the audiences, their happiness could not last long. Sivaji, though did justice to his role, he could not help the film from becoming a dud.
MINUS: It is a glaring mistake of MS Narayana. There are no links from one scene to another. The entire film is in complete patches. Every scene was treated as a comedy track and none of the scenes have any justification or meaning. Every scene was dramatic and cinematic without any reasoning. None of the characters are properly established. Music is also atrocious and none of the songs are worth listening or watching. Savyasachi aka Vikram, son of MS Narayana, who played in a couple of films earlier, need to shed his weight as much as he can if he really wants to stay in the industry. The heroines are neither glamorous nor have any scope to perform.
REMARKS: One could show the people this film to explain that a feature film could not be made like this. MS Narayana could as well concentrate on acting instead of trying his hand again in direction. Individually, each character has some sort of comedy, but all their efforts proved futile in the absence of proper narration and gripping screenplay. Editor Kotagiri Venkateswara Rao might have faced an uphill task in joining the bits in a format. In fact, he might have kept the script on one hand and joined the bits mechanically.
