What is bad:Krishnam Raju as the ACP is an awful waste and tests the viewer’s patience. Namitha (as Billa’s girl friend) is an eye sore and Hansika is gone before you even settle down in the movie. Kelly Dorjee continues to harass unsuspecting audiences with his Telugu pronunciation. And the “can can” dialogue evokes sarcastic laughter from the audience. The 1st half is slow simply because the story moves randomly. Mani Sharma’s music is a disappointment as is the script. Director Meher Ramesh’s characterization of Billa is all style and no substance.
Me Thinks:Watch it if you are a Prabhas fan. If you can sit through the first half you will be rewarded for your patience in the second half.
Tailpiece: It was really sad to watch the audience laugh at Krishnam Raju’s serious dialogues. Clearly Krishnma Raju has not kept up with the pace of today’s cinema. In mind and body he seems to be lost in a time warp.
