Star Performances

The actors have not failed in their performances in spite of the drawbacks. Anish, who is a debutante, impresses us to some extent. The dance by him is wonderful. Newcomers Aditi Rao and Krishi Thapanda are of course beautiful before the camera. Raqngayana Raghu is quite impressive.


The screenplay could have been handled in a better manner. However, for a newcomer, the director G Naveen Reddy has done an average job.

What is There?

  • The music by B Ajaneesh Lokanath is good. 
  • The movie has a novel concept i.e. romance is showcased in a different manner.  
  • A song with beautiful locales in Norway deserves special mention. 
  • The cinematography of the movie is commendable. 
  • The second half is engrossing. 

What is not There?

  • Though the story is novel, it isn’t impressive. 
  • The happenings in the movie are hardly interconnected.


An average attempt by the director with some good performances by the newcomers.
