Star Performances

Sometimes the actors do an earnest job but it will appear to be overacting. But Nagarjuna does his role of a person whose main aim in life is to be happy, in a flawless manner. The characterization of Nagarjuna has been done well and in this regard the alien accent of him can be forgiven. As for Karthi, he excels in his slang and his body language is commendable. Tamannaah, though has a brief role, has understood the nuances of her character and pulls it off with ease. Late actress Kalpana impresses us while Prakash Raj, as usual, does a convincing job. The cameos of famous stars are worth mentioning.


Life is too good to be spent in a sad manner. Director Vamsi Padipallyhas understood this well and hence has laced the movie with philosophy. And yes, he emerges winner in doing so.
