Director Krishnavamsi is known as a creative director. His films like 'Sindhuram' and 'Khadgam' proved his calibre the could present different subjects on the screen effectively, while the films like 'Ninne Pelladatha' and 'Murari' proved that he is an expert in presenting family subjects too.

However, the sharpness of this creative director had witnessed a break and he had a bad time in the recent past. Many of his films including 'Sri Anjaneyam, Danger and Chakram', failed to make a mark at the Box Office, while Raakhi gave him a little solace but not at the expected level. Keeping his bad experiences in view, Krishnavamsi had come out with a family subject again in which he was proved an expert. Produced by C Kalyan on the banner of Teja Productions, the film 'Chandamama' is a typical and different love subject and is basically a treatment-based movie.

Ranga Rao (Nagababu) and his brother are landlords in a village and are kind-hearted. Ranga Rao is a widower and Mahalakshmi (Kaajal Agarwal) is his only daughter. He loves Mahalakshmi more than anything in his life. Ranga Rao's brother also has a daughter called Rani (Sindhu Menon) and a son (Satyam Rajesh). Theirs is a happy family. As Mahalakshmi completes her education, he decides to marry her. The family invites another landlord Ramalingeswara Rao (Ahuti Prasad), who has a son Dorababu (Siva Balaji), for an alliance. Dorababu likes Mahalakshmi and the elders fix the alliance.

However, Mahalakshmi tells Dorababu that she loved Kishore (Navadeep), a TV journalist in the city and also dated with him. Mahalakshmi tells him that Kishore had cheated her and did not want to marry her. She makes it clear that she doesn't want to cheat an innocent like Dorababu by hiding all this. Finding that Kishore played a practical joke and he still loves Mahalakshmi, Dorababu brings him and joins the lovers. Rani notices this love drama and she falls in love with Dorababu and vice-versa. However, none of them could dare to tell the truth either to Ranga Rao or to Ramalingeswara Rao. They come to a decision to elope and marry at their will. But Mahalakshmi could not cheat her father and confesses to him. Whether the girls were able to win the love of their lovers and become one with the acceptance of their elders? Whether the family relations between the families gone into rough weather or had a smooth end? Answers to all these questions form part of the climax.


Sivabalaji: Sivabalaji played hero in several films earlier, Krishnavamsi gave him a good footage in this film. He also played a Good Samaritan's role, who joins a love couple. Sivabalaji showed good ease in his performance all through the film both in regular scenes and also in the dance sequences and at the same time maintained perfect comedy timing. He is really a good choice for the role.

Navadeep: This is the character of a chivalrous boy who always plays practical jokes. The director ran a good love track between Navadeep and Kaajal and it has some novelty. Navadeep also maintained perfect comedy timing, especially in the love track that runs in urban backdrop. His performance made the audiences to believe that he is doing a character with negative shade. He doesn't mind to appear in a girl's dress in a fashion show during a song sequence and that really evoked good laughter.

Kaajal Agarwal: Generally in the films of current generation, there won't be much scope to perform for the heroines and basically they are being used to fill the glamour slot. But in this movie, Kaajal Agarwal had got good opportunity to prove her acting talents. She did justice to her role as a girl who loves her father very much and could not hide anything from him. Even on the glamour front she lo
