While shooting, the camera fell accidentally and broken into pieces. They take it to the repair shop and finally, the camera owner received the information about the camera and took it. What will Veerababu and the team do next? The rest of the film deals with the story interestingly.

Star Performance

All the stars who played in the film did their job well.


The debutant director has brought a new script and the screenplay is interesting too. Although all the stars are newcomers, we don’t feel like watching the debutants and they all fit well in the role. The cinematography is very natural. There are no cinematic performances, unexpected twists, but something natural is shown. Their attempt to make a movie, hunting for the leads and shooting the film are impressive and quite natural. However, the film seems to be moving at a slow pace at times. The BGM is okayish.

What’s There?

  • Script is new
  • Direction is neat
  • The performances of the stars are natural

What’s Not There?

  • The film is slow-paced


The film has a good set of actors and technicians, who make us feel excited while watching the film. Although the team is new, they have made a decent entertainer.
