    Cinematographer-turned-director Dharma Teja is known for his teen romance dramas like Jayam, Chitram and Nuvvu Nenu. But following the poor response to his last film Neeku Naaku Dash Dash, he has done something off the beaten path in his latest directorial venture 1000 Abaddalu. Though he tries best to make the audience keep glued to screens, a few slow and monotonous scenes kill their interest.

    The film 1000 Abaddalu is a romantic comedy entertainer with a few masala elements. Sairam Shankar's performance, Teja's interesting script and a few funny dialogues, Nagababu, Naveen and Venu's hilarious comedy, Ramana Gogula's music and background score and picturiasation are some of the main attractions in the movie. A few unconvincing, unrealistic and dragging sequences and predictable plot in the second half are the major drawbacks of the film.

    The movie is based on ancient Telugu proverb about weddings - There is nothing wrong in telling 1000 lies to materialise one marriage. The film is all about what happens when a man literally follows the proverb in his real life. The first half of the film is completely different from Teja's usual style of filmmaking. Barring a few sequences, this portion is quite enjoyable. The second half of the film is also interesting, but lacks twists and turns in the story.

    Satya (Sairam Shankar) is the owner of an advertising company and he falls in love with already-engaged Satya (Esther) after seeing her generous nature. In bid to marry her, he tells several lies. After marrying, she comes to know about his lies. What happens next will forms rest of the story, which should be watched onscreen.
