What is bad:
The screenplay of the movie is disappointing. Inspite of a clever start it falls into its trap as writer-director Dasari employs clichéd tactics. The entire first half goes by as a collection of few scenes, and the story hardly moves forward. Unnecessary songs halt the progress of the movie in the second half, even as the flashback story of Major Jay Simha goes on and on. Dasari’s women always had strong roles, but it seems the roles of the three women in this movie have been written in a hurry. Ameesha Patel looks old, and it seems she hardly is the actor she once was. Sheela’s character is confusing and Neha Dhupia was there for some skin show and a fight! The roles of Krishna Bhagawan, Raghu Babu, L.B. Sriram, Venu are too minor and unnecessary. Senior actors like Jayasudha, Vijay Kumar, Murali Mohan and Vijay Chandar, even though they have good roles, look out of place in loud roles.
Infact, while it is expected that almost all Balakrishna’s movies are loud and extravagant, the movie is way too over the top!
