What is bad:
Sadly, the care that was taken on style and presentation was not evident in the screenplay. The movie proceeds at a torturous pace in the second half and the patience of the audience is really tested. Songs keep butting in at irregular intervals and hinder the progress of the story. There are some illogical points as well.
Kajal doesn’t look very good with this new hairstyle. She looked ravishing in songs but pretty ordinary in the movie. The person who dubbed for Samantha in “Ye Maya Chesave” has dubbed for Kajal in this movie and it just does not suit her. You literally wince every time you hear Kajal ‘speak’ on screen.
Naga Chaitanya needs to really work on his dialogue delivery, especially in intense emotional scenes. There were a few laughs from the audience when Chaitanya was trying to utter some serious stuff.
We do not know if the rumours of a tiff between Chaitanya and Kajal are true. But they definitely do not have a good onscreen chemistry.
Comedy is the biggest let down. The movie has Brahmanandam, Dharmavarapu, Ali, M.S.Narayana, Venu Madhav and Uttej. Sadly, all of them are terribly wasted. They just come and go in a flash. Only Brahmanandam has some screen time but some of his scenes fail to evoke laughter. Especially the scene with Ali in the jungle was a bit ridiculous.
