Sogasu Chooda Taramaa Plot Synopsis
Sogasu Chooda Taramaa retells the story of a young couple, very much in love, who have gotten married and begun their respective careers. In the original film, Hollywood’s Indecent Proposal, the heroine is an estate broker, the hero an architect. The heroine finds the perfect spot to build her husband’s dream house, and the couple apply for and receive loans in order to finance the building of it. When the recession hits, however, they are in danger of losing everything, and this is where the idea to visit Las Vegas and do their damndest to win the cash they need is born.
The couple, unhappily, do not do well at the tables, and their financial ruin seems inevitable. Fate intervenes however, as they are approached by a mysterious millionaire who offers the hero a million dollars in exchange for the chance to spend an evening with his wife. Although the couple agrees that this is indeed a quick method to deal with their financial dilemma, it also threatens their relationship at a core level.
Sogasu Chooda Taramaa reinterprets the film’s themes completely for a Telugu audience, and does not stick to a simple retelling of the original film’s theme. Indraja’s character is a beautiful woman who marries an ambitious man, played by Naresh. At a party Naresh’s boss is captivated by the beauty of the hero’s wife and offers Naresh an excellent work position, albeit with a less than savoury agenda –putting the hero in a difficult position once poverty becomes a real possibility without it. The film explores the hero’s dilemma: will he sacrifice his work aspirations, or the woman who loves him?
