Performances: Kalyanram changed his style in this film, his dialogue delivery & histrionics are little subtle. He is good in Action scenes and introduction scenes. Kriti Kharbanda looks pretty in the movie. Her pairing with Kalyan ram looks beautiful. Puli fame Nikesha Patel is adequate and has nothing much to do. Karthik is very good in a vital role. Sampath Raj is promising in his character. Rao Ramesh, Suresh and Surya have limited scope to perform.
Technicalities: Story of the film is a routine revenge drama. Director Sunil Reddy looks capable of dealing with plots of revenge with mass orientation. However, he could not succeed in establishing love and relations. Screenplay of the film is average. The director failed to establish the characters in impact-making way. Narration of the film is pretty slow.
Music by Achu and Sai Karthik is average. Neelo Emo song is good. Dialogues are adequate. Photography by Ajayan Vincent is fair. Stunts are not so promising in the second half. Visual effects of the film fail to elevate the scenes. Even 3D effects fail to make any impact. Production values by NTR arts are good.
Cinetara Verdict: First half of the film is average and then there is slack in the second half and it picks up towards the end and the film concludes with a causal climax. The extended flashback with Naagineedu is not impressive. Narration of this film is very constrained. This film suffers from direction and predictable screenplay. Overall, a average movie that made to encash 3D.
Cinetara Rating: 3/5
