Director Suman Pathuri has come up with a good idea of recalling the college days by a group of friends. In fact, one such film came up on the Telugu screen, where the friends meet after a gap of few years and share their ideas and their life earlier. This time, he rehashed a similar story for his latest film 'Inkosari", a revision of memories. He chose a few young and upcoming artistes and a hero of a lesser image, besides an old and familiar face of the Telugu heroines Richa Pallod for the characters. He tried to mould the film in order to portray the revision of memories of a group of friends. But could not exactly present it on the screen.
A group of six friends Ajay (Raja), Shruti (Manjari), Deepti (Richa), Vicky (Saandip), Sudhakar (Ravi Varma), Bala (Vennela Kishore) and their senior Pavan (Harish) vows to meet exactly after one year. In fact, Vicky makes the proposal, but others are not sure whether they could really meet each other. However, Vicky insists and they agree half-heartedly. Ajay leaves for the US, Deepti gets married to a busy realtor, Vicky turns a software professional, Sudhakar continues to look after his father"s business, while Bala struggles with his wife. Shruti gets ready to marry after seven years. At that moment, Ajay returns from the US and meets Bala. He proposes to go for a week"s outing along with all the other friends in their group. Both Ajay and Bala go to Vicky and convince him. Then they go to Sudhakar and make him to agree to meet in his farmhouse. They also meet Deepti and Shruti and plead with them to join them and spend time together. Shruti doesn"t want to join them as her marriage was fixed and was busy with the arrangements. What happened in these 7 days? Along with time.What happens when some unresolved issues once again surface? Thats should be watched on screen.
Raja failed to come out with any novel performance. He is as usual. The film has nothing new to offer him. However, he is the only lead artiste with hero"s image. Manjari Phadnis filled the glamour slot and played the female lead opposite him. However, she too failed to emote well in her character. Richa Pallod is just okay in her role but the director failed to elevate her image though she made her screen presence after a long gap. Other artistes, including Ravi Varma, Sandeep, Harish, Rao Ramesh and Gollapudi Maruti Rao did justice to their respective roles. It is Vennela Kishore steals the show with his comedy. Sans Kishore, the film has nothing to offer. Saira Banu appears as his wife in a couple of scenes. Sayali Bhagat"s item number failed to impress the audiences.
Music by Mahesh Shankar remained average, while the re-recording is poor. None of the scenes got any elevation with re-recording. None of the songs were impressive nor foot-tapping. The item number was also not choreographed effectively. Camera work by Gogineni Ranganath Babu was poor and the editing by KV Krishna Reddy is just okay. The story penned by Raj, DK and Sita Menon has nothing novel to offer and the screenplay was haphazard. Many scenes were abruptly ended and appeared disjointed. Kalyan Palla"s production values are okay. Director Suman Pathuri failed to narrate the subject exactly as per his thoughts properly.
It is just a time-pass movie and can be watched by a group of friends as they could recall their memories. However, the film may not liked by the mass audiences as nothing was offered for them. The absence of commercial elements like high-voltage dances, action packed scenes, would keep the mass audiences off from the film. However, the film could be enjoyed by the city buffs. Basically, the film was also aimed at multiplex viewers and it could satisfy the wishes of a certain class people.
