RATING:2.5/5

OVERVIEW: Teja (Sai Dharam Tej) is working in Vision software solutions owned by Nandakishore( Nazir) and inherits the qualities of helping poor and needy of his boss . Tej beleived that good will come out of doing good for others and falls in love with Sadhya ( Lavanya Tripathi) who dislikes him initially buts gains love after his virtue of respecting women. Some people take over Nanda Kishore company by cheating through mafia dons Vikki Bhai ( Rahul Dev) and his brother (Dev Gil) .Though Nanda kishore protests and plans to approach Union ministers at Delhik suddenly commits suicide after giving ownership to mafia chief Vikki . Story revolves on his murder of suicide .

REVIEW: Sai Dharam Tej has performed well. His dances and action sequences are impressive. Lavanya Tripathi justified her role well. Nasser has got a key role in the film and he impressed one and all. The lead antagonist is Rahul Dev and he was okay in the movie. Shayaji Shindey, Ashish Vidyarthi, Venu, Rahul Ramakrishna, Prudhvi etc. justified their roles well. All the actors played their parts well and impressed in their limited roles.

Vinayak can make a formula film work with his racy screenplay and powerful scenes. He is clearly out of touch in the film as there isn’t one scene or shot that bears his mark. The story written by Akula Siva is very bad and Vinayak’s screenplay couldn’t make any difference to it. There is an attempt to save the film by resorting to comedy, but bad writing continued to haunt it everywhere.

Thaman has done a mediocre job this time. None of the songs are impressive. Even Chamaku Chamaku remix song didn’t work. Cinematography is pretty average. Dialogues are unimpressive. Production values are just okay. The film lacks the visual grandeur that is associated with a Vinayak’s film.

Final verdict of the film is it is a very much routine movie with same old narrative methods. It can be easily assumed as one of the weakest works by director VV Vinayak as well as Sai Dharam Tej.
