Star Performance

Vijay Devarakonda has done his job. Ananya Pandey didn't have much to do. Ramya and the rest of the cast have done as per the director's request.


The makers have brought the legendary Mike Tyson to the Indian film industry with this film. The film starts on a promising note. But, Puri failed to impress the audience when the movie started moving toward its central theme. The love track and the training session are commonly used in past films. The fight between the hero and heroine is not sensible, and it evokes laughter. Many scenes are over the top in the second part, especially the scenes towards the climax. Vijay's transformation for the film is palpable. The songs are okay, and the cinematography is good.

What's There?

  • Vijay Devarakonda's performance is good
  • Action scenes are shot well

What's Not There?

  • Predictable scenes make the audience lose their interest
  • No twists and big turns


Though the film has Vijay Devarakonda's best performance so far, the predictable plot and some silly and over-the-top scenes make the efforts go in vain. The film is only for Vijay Devarakonda's fans. You can try this if you enjoy movies that don't have much logic and over-the-top scenes to have a cinematic experience!
