A great story with superb performances..must watch for an Indian esp. an Andhrite
1 January 2007 | by fedceelSee all my reviews

I have to say two things about me before I write the review. I never wrote a review straight after watching a movie. I generally dislike and don't watch many Telugu movies.

I seldom budge to any touching scenes. But this movie broke through my emotions. The reason that elevates this movie above many others is the story and the primary role (played by Sharvanand) in the movie. I never saw this guy act before. He stole the show.

The movie is about a mentally under-grown lad named Bose whose world doesn't change with time and age. Though Bose is 21 he still goes to school where kids study. He can understand situations around him but he is not matured and reacts like a child. His world is guided by his Mom. She loves him and guards him all the time. Bose's father is a rocket scientist who works in a rocket research center. Their family live in a township built for the scientists working in the research center.Though his father suggests to join him in a therapy institution, she refuses it.

Bose continues to fail in exams and his principal advises his mother to put him into some kind of job which might help him learn and see outside world. Bose joins the canteen in the township as a auto-driver to transport things to canteen from a nearby market.Bose makes a friend in Razia who joins as a music teacher in the school. She is an undercover IB officer who comes here to foil an ISI group's plans to blast the research center. The group base themselves in the township. Their leader identifies Bose's deficiencies and uses Bose as an access to communicate with his associate spying inside the center.

Unknowingly Bose helps to carry an RDX inside the center. By accident Bose kills the group by blasting their building with a car bomb that was kept to assassinate himself. Bose helps Razia in the investigation by relaying her a memorized code that was used by the ISI group. Razia finds that the bomb in the research center is to explode on the day when all the top scientists around the country meet to felicitate the students selected to be groomed as future scientist in the research center. How Bose helped in foiling the plot is the climax.

Climax is an emotional ending that really touches everyone. As the movie name suggests, it emphasizes the bond between mother and child and a son abiding a mother's helpless decree.

10 out of 10 to a Telugu movie directed by Gangaraju Gunnam. Surely deserves a national award.
