S.A.Rajkumar’s music is good in parts, although there’s hardly any song which is memorable. Shaman Mithru’s cinematography is good. Gowtham Raju’s editing could have been better especially in second half. Chintapalli Ramana’s dialogues are uninspiring. Vijay Balaji who directed the film has also handled the screenplay. He could have worked a lot more on establishing the relationship between Tanish and Madhurima instead of resorting to bland comedy in second half. The climax of the film lacks originality and it is forced upon to literally add more drama in the end.
The title of the film itself is misleading and there’s hardly anything which would justify the title. Since every film maker desperately tries to convey a message, Vijay Balaji chooses to talk about ‘Status’. The film concludes that ‘Status’ is misleading and it’s not worth it. Although I wouldn’t disagree with this message entirely, it’s a painful exercise to wait for almost 140 minutes to understand this message and feel guilty about it. The film lacks both mounam (silence) and ragam (symphony). Quite contrary to what it sets out to achieve, the film ends up being uninspiring and emotionally hollow.
Is it an unwritten rule that every hot chick has to fall in love with a jerk?! O Paramahamsa…emiti maa ki ee Himsa! Pun intended!
