One wonders whether Ram Pothineni has really emerged as a winner in this film. The Energy Star of Telugu film industry had some hits previously, and his fans would be longing to see him in a good role. He has indeed come out with a commercial entertainer. But wait…he does some “over brilliant” scenes and all his fighting and other stuffs are prolonged for 3 hours.

Director Srinivasa Reddy has cashed in on the comic ability of various comedians. The comedians do the routine stuff and the audience would surely be bored of watching it. Here I give another version of my review. The film has all the masala ingredients. This film will indeed be a great relief to the masala film lovers since, of late, Tollywood was filled with films of Baahubali genre.

Plot: Ram is keen on uniting lovers. He is such a self-centered person that his father is very much annoyed with him. And there is the love story of Ram with Rashi and one wonders whether Rashi really loves him. She is cute in this film and acceptable. Ram is in full form in this film; he is in full overacting form. Music of Devi Sri Prasad is indeed rocking. He is busy composing music for different languages and this attempt is a great one. BGM has also worked well in this film. Though the film starts off in a promising note, it stumbles midway. The film is in predictable lines. Choreography is just average.

Verdict: Given the fact that, if the fans of Ram would want to see their favorite star in a likeable role this film may strike a chord, but given the meekness of actors in yielding to such weak films as this, it’s high time that filmmakers ponder over what true film making is about. Is it just to be on the safer side or to elevate the taste of the masses?
