The film centres with both lead characters kajal and Kalyan ram who meet up accidentally many times and finally end up in the same office, where posani Murali Krishna is the boss. kalyan ram bets with kajal due to land encroachment with gadappa ( Ravi Kishan ). the first half lays within winning of the bet to winning the love of Kajal.

kajal’s father jayaprakash reddy’s family has an eternal desire to become MLA. he and his son couldn’t fulfil the dream of becoming an MLA. due to this dream, kajal crosses path with gadappa. hereon, the hero Kalyan ram goes about winning the love of kajal and in turn becoming an MLA for it is the second half of the film.


the primary line of the MLA movie is to give a message regarding child labour, who are suffering from silicosis due to inclement working conditions. the movie also states the importance of education. the first half mostly resembles to srinu vaitla’s past movies where the lead protagonist tries to over cross the villain by creating some confusion. even here, the Kalyan and kajal play a tit for tat game with the villain by creating alternate reality living in their house..this first half may also remind you the past super hits like dookudu. the debutant director worked as an associate writer for Badshah and dookudu, that influence will be clearly seen in this film.  vennela Kishore, Kalyan ram’s onscreen brother puts the first half lively. the twist in the interval may leave to suspect the second half.

the second half is message-oriented, which reminds you of koratala Siva’s movies. pruthvi, as Kalyan ram’s P.A and EX- P.A to gadappa makes his place on the screen. here again, it is challenging with Ravi Kishan, who is an MLA and falls in love with Kajal Agarwal. Kalyan ram brings a change in the community by making the people realizing the importance of education. there is no proper premise for the songs and all come as sudden breakers.





  • music
  • comedy
  • production values


  • routine story
  • much predictable second half
  • misplaces songs
