The gap widens with the intermediary playing tricks and when her marriage was made known in the village, both friends set out to stop the marriage.
Finally the marriage was stopped and the hero seeks the school teacher’s hand but she refuses and a villain gang in turn intervenes to bash him up. With series of twists and turns, the film keeps audience busy connecting fast-paced events, which finally end on a happer note, with Sunny Leone dance cheering the audience in between.
The film is directed by G Nageswara Reddy was produced by Manchu Vishnu, brother of Manoj Manchu and son of Mohan Babu.
However, Manoj Manchu’s earlier films Potugadu and Pandavulu Pandavulu Thummeda released this year were not great hits compared to his earlier hits Donga Dongadi or Jummandi Nadam. In fact, Pandavulu Pandavulu Thummeda, that had all the family cast in it including Mohan Babu was a big failure at the box office.
It remains to be seen whether the comedy thriller “Current Theega” will bring back hopes on Manoj Manchu this time.
