It is 'Santusht Huva' craftsmanship from debutant director Santhu. A believer in work in the first film has struggled very hard in getting a good opening. Definitely Santhu has 'Meter' to shine like director R Chandru of 'Taj Mahal, 'Mylari' and 'Ko Ko Koli Kothi'.
The determination of the director in giving a gripping film with sentiments is appreciable. In the risk of giving a box office film the film 'Alemari' is quite lengthy (14 reels plus) is a major drawback. Had he relooked at the weaker areas of the film and controlled the thoughts of dialogue writer, this would have been a competent film.
