A slightly altered version of Prema Katha Chiram formula - Just one-time watch!

Plot:

Rambha (Tejaswi) and Satya (Kruthika) are good friends. They have an attitude of making fool out of guys and have fun. They pretend to fall in love with guys and then cheat in return. In the mean time, an astrologer says that as per their horoscope, they would turn to widows on the third day of their wedding. Then these two friends make a clever plan of marrying the guys who are coming behind them so that even if the latter die,  they can be safe. Rightfully, they trap two guys named Peter (Parvatheesam), and Ashwath (Chethan). What would happen next? Will Peter and Aswhath die as per the horoscope?- forms the rest of the plot.

Performances:

Parvatheesam: He is the real strength of the film and saves the film with his comedy timing. The Vizianagaram and Srikakulam slang works well for the film.

Tejaswi: She offers good glamour dose in the film and does a good job in acting as well.

Kruthika: She could improve in acting skills as in some scenes she looked out of place.

Chethan: He tried to make a presence but failed badly.

Others: Ali is what Saptagiri in Prema Katha Chitram but the lone difference is that Ali's comedy has no substance!

Analysis:

This is a typical story which suits the likings of director Maruthi. The posters and promotional material makes sure it is a youthful love story. Every scene in the film is written keeping youngsters in mind. The first half continues with the female leads making fool of guys. However, Parvateesam’s slang and interesting portrayal makes the first half enjoyable. The audience will connect well to it because of the focus on current day problems of the youth.

The way first half reaches a conclusion is quite interesting. But the second half goes to a totally different track with the inclusion of suspense. The director deviated from the youth ideas by bringing socio fantasy and horror element to the film here. The film sadly doesn’t belong to a particular genre as it is a fusion of multiple genres. Many Facebook quotes were liberally used in the name of comedy. As a result, lot of double meaning dialogues came into picture. Despite being a youth centric film, such vulgar comedy could have been avoided. And even if you're an average movie buff, you'll find the underlying Prema Katha Chitram format upon which this film's plot has been concocted. 

Though the first half offers something to at least smile, the second half is let down with the narrative going clueless. Ali's comedy and other extension material doesn't work and the poor predictable short story had to come to an end! 

Technical Aspects:

JB’s music sounded repetitive and the background music fails to impress. Camera work is quite interesting and captivating. The story looks quite weak and dialogues are laden with double meaning. The director’s stamina narrows down in the first half itself.

Merits:
- Comedy and Punches
- First half

De-merits:
- Poor story
- Second half

Verdict:
Rojulu Marayi is an over dosage of Prema Katha Chitram formula. However the fun factor in the first half saves the film from being a disappointer - a one-time watch flick!
