Star Performance

Adivi Sesh has lived perfectly in Sandeep's character, and it is his career-best performance so far. He fits well in the role. Saiee Manjrekar has got a performance-oriented role, and she utilizes it well. Her chemistry with Adivi is superb. Prakash Raj and Revathi are good in their roles. Both had given emotional performances.


The screenplay by Adivi Sesh is fantastic. The transition of the lead character is written well and Adivi Sesh’s expressions and body language are fantastic. Though, the film starts at a slow pace, it picks the right pace and keeps the audience engaged till the end. The second half is fantastically shot with high-octane action sequences, and Adivi has done it excellently. For the first time, he has got an opportunity to do heavy-stuff action scenes and receives appreciation. A few scenes are predictable. The visuals are perfect, and the editing is neat. The BGM gels well with the story.
