What is bad:
What brings the movie down is the not so novel story and screenplay that devotes most of the first half to the love story angle rather than the two gangsters. The rivalry could have been easily used to create more dramatic situations instead. The second half shows Vishal as a superhero who very easily manages to reform his brother while fighting Prakash Raj single-handedly which didn’t look too convincing esp. as the villains are shown to be so ruthless & powerful. The songs seem to be forced into the script and end up dragging the movie instead. Sayaji Shinde is wasted as the corrupt minister and he gets limited to 4-5 scenes.
This movie could have been much more gripping if the script had been reworked in the first half. It is an average entertainer which has nothing new or different to offer. It definitely has shades of Pokiri esp. with Prakash raj’s character.
The term Pista is colloquial for a guy with attitude…but this doesn’t really gel with the hero’s character who seems more of a happy go lucky type than a dude with attitude!!!
