Dr Rajasekhar has a passion to remake popular South Indian films. Naa Style Veru is the remake of the successful Malayalam film Hello. It is a love story between a 40+ man and a 20 year girl. However, the story has failed to repeat the magic in Telugu and the film has turned out to be a big dud in Telugu.
Sivaram (Rajasekhar), a lawyer is the son of a magistrate (Chalapati Rao) and the brother of an ACP (Benarjee). Sivaram accepts a case and gets the son of an MLA punished after an innocent girl pleads with him about the innocence of her brother. Sivaram loses his heart for that girl, but Sivaram"s parents do not allow their marriage. She commits 'suicide". After that incident, Sivaram gives up his practice and becomes a drunkard.
At this juncture, Parvati (Bhumika) whose life is under threat calls up Sivaram for help. Sivaram saves her and takes her to his home. Soon her father (Vijaykumar) returns from the US after a surgery. By that time, some others kidnap Parvati from Sivaram. Sivaram soon realizes that Parvati, who trusted Praveen as her saviour was himself the villain. Sivaram decides to save Parvati and catch the real culprit.
Sivaram saves Parvati from kidnappers and starts investigation and finally comes to know that her paternal uncle (Ahuti Prasad) is the culprit and that their family lawyer (Jeeva) was hand in glove with him. The film ends on a happy note by unravelling the truth.
Though Rajasekhar has done justice to his role, the film has nothing new. The director has tried his best to maintain the suspense until the first half, but everything gets revealed one after the other, without any break. Bhumika has put on a little weight and looks gorgeous. Ali, Brahmanandam, Venumadhav and Jeeva have tried to evoke a little comedy but none of them could give a hearty laugh. Songs by Anoop Rubens are average.
The haphazard screenplay, not so gripping story, poor narration on screen – all put together with the director"s immaturity is the biggest minus point of the film. The entire first half has nothing to offer to the audiences as it has no essence at all. It is not known why he ha stretched the story so long till the interval bang with nothing concrete in the story. But for the hero"s flashback episode, the entire first half has been unnecessarily stretched beyond the permissible levels and has bored the audiences completely. The second half of the film also is not so great. It is not known how the hero comes to know the secrets and the director has failed to establish anything. An average audience cannot understand what is happening and how the hero is narrating the story.
Those who like routine commercial formula films can vote for such kind of films but those who look something novel in the film would definitely refuse it. It is surprising that how a heroine like Bhumika has accepted the role as it has neither any scope to perform, nor anything special in the character. Even choreography of songs is atrocious and has appeared like a drill by a school student. A person who is about 35, and an advocate is not expected to dance like that. The entire film is totally cinematic and has nothing near to nativity. The film could be easily avoided and has neither entertainment values nor a great story.
