What is Good :
Love stories have been done to death especially in terms of the chronology of events. We know that mostly such stories tend to have a happy ending, so the only differentiating factor is the journey towards that end. Director Hemanth Madhukar who also wrote the story of Vasthaadu Naa Raju takes a different route and instead of a boy-meets-girl-and-problems sequence, the film puts forth the problem first before love happens. It’s perhaps the only differentiating factor of the film and helps in the narration. Vishnu has undergone a massive transformation since his previous film, Saleem. Right from his looks, costumes, dialogues and more importantly how much he restrains himself from going overboard is quite visible on screen. He does well in the action sequences and his confrontation scenes with Prakash Raj are the best in the film. Although he doesn’t do anything extra-ordinary in the film, his understanding of his role is noteworthy and he doesn’t do anything silly till the end of the film. Taapsee has an interesting role in the film. In the beginning, she often finds herself in awkward situations especially when she bumps into Vishnu’s family in the film and later she empathizes with Venky before falling in love with him. It’s Prakash Raj who dazzles the most in his film. Although it’s a tailor made role for him, the amount of flamboyance and villainy he emotes for most part of the film is a delight to watch, like always. Brahmanandam is good in his role and his flashback scenes make an interesting watch. Sayaji Shinde, Satya Krishna, Ajay, Satyam Rajesh, Siva Reddy and others make their presence felt.
