One more good entertainer from Nag
After a day's hard work full of tensions, one needs to relax. Some people go out to watch a film in a theatre. Some other take their family in an outing for a movie. They prefer that a good entertainer will ease all their tensions of the outside world. These days, several films are coming with different backdrops including action, sentiment, love and message-oriented. Only few films could be categorised as entertainers. Yuva Samrat Nagarjuna, who gave a memorable devotional hit like Sri Ramadasu, again came before the audiences with a commercial entertainer with Boss. The film stood up to the expectations of the audiences in general and his fans in particular. Like many of his films, Boss is also a neat entertainer, sans obscene dresses, dialogues and exposing scenes. Basically it remained a good entertainer a la Santosham, Manmadhudu and Nenunnanu.
SRK (Sayaji Shinde) is a real estate contractor. He uses muscle power to encroach land and makes money. His business rival Gopala Krishna @ GK (Nagarjuna) is the 'Boss' of GK Constructions. GK has the power to handle goons as well as the real estate business. He calls for applications from MBA graduates as his personal secretary. None of the applicants reach his expectations. He accidentally meets Anuradha (Anu) (Nayanatara) and thinks that she is fit for the job. As a 'Boss' he is tough with his staff, at the same time, he has lots of concern over them. During a trip to Malaysia, Anu and GK get closer and Anu loses her heart to GK. When she was about to reveal her love, Anu involves in a petty issue and faces the wrath of GK. Consequently, she resigns to her job. GK calls for interviews for his personal secretary again and zeroes in on Sruthi (Poonam Bajwa). In fact, she was planted in GK's office by none other than SRK. In order to get her father Rammurthy released from a false case, in which he was implicated by SRK, Sruthi steals a tender file. However, she did not hand it over to SRK, but demands her father's release. The crooked SRK did not listen to her. At this juncture, she tries to escape from the scene and gets saved by GK at the instance of Anu. However, Anu injures in the attack by goons in the process, but goes straight to the Tenders office and files the tender to save GK from a huge loss and to fulfil his ambition of securing the dream project. When GK was about to thank her, she reveals her love towards him only to know about the love story of GK. In the flashback, GK reveals that he loved Sanjana (Shriya) and got her married. But she dies in tsunami attack. He says he can't expect someone to replace Sanjana. GK refuses Anu's love politely. As the time goes by, Sanjana's mother Sumitra (Sumalatha) dies of illness in Malaysia and her husband Viswanath (Nasar) tells GK that her last wish is the marriage of GK with Anu. GK also gets a feel that Sanjana also wants the same. He returns to India and unites with Anu and the film ends on a happy note.
Nagarjuna's down-to-earth performance is the highlight of the film. The basic theme of the film, entertainment, stands the other highlight. VN Aditya gave a clean film and he made the audiences sit tight in their seats with his directorial capabilities. Even the comedy is quite healthy and did not have any double-meaning dialogues. Music by Kalyani Malik and Harry Anand also turned an asset of the film, besides their choreography. Sivakumar was able to mould all the director's ideas on the celluloid exactly.
Though all the characters were etched well, the director ignored two characters to the tee. The villain's role did by Sayaji Shinde lacked the punch. It appears only in a couple of scenes and in the climax and it failed to impress the audiences. Likewise, the character of Bharani was also quite poor. The director failed to establish this character also properly. But for these petty things, the film as a whole is a good entertainer.
Nagarjuna looked trim and slim and turned a synonym to the words Greeku Veerudu and Dream Boy as he was referred to by youngsters. Nayanatara had the opportunity to look glamorous and at the same time had got an opportunity to perform to certain extent. Poonam Bajwa filled the glamour slot. Shriya made a special appearance in the film. Saloni shook legs with Nagarjuna in the first song 'Nachinde Chesey...'. Sumalatha appeared on the screen after a long gap. Comedy by Dharamavarapu Subrahmanyam, Ali, Sunil and Brahmanandam is okay. As a whole if you feel like watching an entertainer, Kamakshi Movies' film Boss would be the correct answer.
