However, things become more interesting when Detective Sandhya (Sruthi Mol) goes missing during the process of investigation.

Who killed Rishita? Where did Detective Sandhya disappear? What is the connection between this murder and Sandhya’s disappearance? Will Detective Karthik be able to find Sandhya and solve Rishita’s murder mystery?

Star Performance

Rajath Raghav delivers a brilliant performance. He impresses the viewers with his detective character and proves he can be an asset to the Telugu film industry. He shows all the characteristics of an intelligent detective. His investigation scenes are the most impressive part of this film.

Goldie Nissy, who played the role of Pallavi, looks decent on the screen. Her dialogue delivery and expressions are fantastic. She adds depth to this film. Shruthi Mol played a tiny role, but she leave no chance to shine in this film. She executed her part perfectly. The rest of the supporting cast gave their best for this film.


The film’s story is gripping and full of twists. It highlights the issue of cybercrime and the misuse of technology in this digital age. It explores the themes of love, suspense, and deception. The second half is more engaging and takes the viewers on a journey filled with tension, twists, and excitement. The tone of the film creates an engaging crime thriller atmosphere. Rajath Raghav steals the whole film with his performance, and he holds the film firmly. The cinematography and music further enrich the film’s suspenseful atmosphere.

However, the film has a weak narration. A strong narration would have enhanced the excitement among the viewers. The film has a slow pace frequently, and some scenes are unnecessary. The climax also seems simple and does not create much excitement among the viewers. Moreover, the director fails to develop the characters perfectly.
