What is bad: The team behind the film. Uday Sankar made Kalisundam Raa earlier and is stuck in that mode. Suresh productions team is intent on making family entertainers, but then, this movie has Ravi Teja in it. So, what do we do? Add a few fights in Ravi Teja style and a rain song and some mass comedy along with your regular storyline. The music of the film and the picturization of the songs is another minus point. When other directors are using split screens, innovative choreography etc in their songs, taking your stars to the edge of a lake or into the mountains or an extravagant set and making them dance with a few extras does not entertain, nor does a rain dance titillate even if the heroine is Anushka. The story gives you an already seen feel which is a negative. Chandramohan's role is typical, he just has to keep scolding his son whenever he sees him.
Me Thinks: Are you a Venkatesh fan? Do you like films where the hero is ready to sacrifice everything he has for the sake of his family, but is misunderstood at every step? If yes, go see it. Less than average fare, I got the feel that Venkatesh was busy and hence Suresh Productions made a quickie with Ravi Teja. Families might patronize it to some extent due to the banner's reputation, but that is about it.
Tailpiece: Ravi Teja compares himself to two things in the movie, both of which were very funny. First, he says he is like a blade – 'Peeka tegindo ledo teliyaka munde vanda peekalu tegipotaayi' – good dialogue, but a comparison to a blade? Then he says he is like a flashlight, 'flashlight laanti vaanni, ekkadunnaa pasigattestaa'. If you can figure out what they signify, do let us know!!!
