Star Performance

Bellamkonda Sai Sreenivas has done a fantastic job in this film. He has improved a lot in the performance than his previous films. Anupama plays a teacher and she fits well in the given character. Rajeev Kanakala, Vinodhini, Kasi Viswanath and the rest of the stars have done justice to the roles given.


The script is perfect and the screenplay is neat. Yet, there are some dull places, which could have been avoided. The costume and the makeup for the serial killer are unexpected. The characterization is perfect. This film has got a right name for Sreenivas and hopefully, his career would become brighter. The twists are handled neatly and no scene could be predicted. The tough game between the cops and the killer had been designed well. The second half is excellent and it is gripping too. The music and cinematography are fantastic.
