Watch the film in theaters to know the rest.

Star Performance

Haranath Policherla played the army officer and he tried his maximum and it worked out partly. The rest of the stars had given a decent performance to the roles given.


Although the script seems to be patriotic, the screenplay and the narration are weak. The execution in the climax is worst. Most of the senior stars are not utilized properly. The hype to the hero was maximum and it didn’t impress the audience. The CG works are weak and the cinematography is okayish. Songs and the BGM are good. With the decent script, the director should have narrated the story decently.

What’s There?

  • Story is okayish

What’s Not There?

  • Screenplay and the execution are weak
  • CG works are average
  • Unnecessary hype to the hero that irks the audiences


If the director had concentrated a bit on the screenplay and the execution, the film would have reached a better number of audiences. Usually, people love to watch patriotic stories. But, this story didn’t deserve anything.
