Chandu (Nitin) is a go getter and he is fearless. His eyes fall on Nandini (Hansika) and it is love at first sight for him. He woos her and finally wins her heart. However, Nandini’s factionist father Peddi Reddy (Suman) has got a rival in Veera Pratap Reddy (Sunil Panda) who falls in love with Nandini. He takes her forcibly to his place Allagadda. Chandu gets to know this and goes to that place to rescue her. How does he do that? Is he successful or not forms the rest of the story.
Nitin: No change in his body language, same strained expressions. But he has tried to show ample improvement in dance. The steps were received with huge applause. But some commented that it has become superfluous.
Hansika: Pretty as usual and proved her mettle in the glamour and oomph department. No doubt, she is the apple pie beauty. But then, she must fine tune her mannerisms and expressions during serious scenes, that will give a good impact.
Sunil Panda: Except screaming his lungs out and flexing his muscles, there was not much he had to do. He has a good screen presence so he can look at having few more lines in his script.
Brahmi: He is coming up with the routine role and as usual he had a lengthy one to play this time. There were few scenes where he was good, overall, an average score in terms of bringing humor.
Jayaprakash Reddy: The standard choice for uttering those ‘Seema’ slang dialogues, he is regular and yes, he justifies his role.
Others: Ali was effective, M S Narayana was hilarious, Venu Madhav was brief, Suman came and went, Subbaraju was very good, he showed a different image of his. Pragathi was regular, so was Chandramohan. Suman has no adequate scene to show. The others didn’t have much to offer.
Songs were well taken but ‘Kiss Me’ was the best. Dialogues were good at few places, script was weak and the screenplay was okay. Background score was regular.
Cinematography was alright, editing was neat, costumes were good, art department made its presence felt.
The movie got hype an attention due to Telangana movement and agitators titling Nithin as ‘Telangana Mega Star’. Otherwise, the response wouldn’t have been this big for this flick.
The film runs on a routine track and it is the usual ‘brains vs brawns’ where hero is the most intelligent while the villain and his gun toting goons are a bunch of jokers who have the most minimum IQ levels.
However, Nitin was careful not trying to be the hero at all times and managing the show with a parallel track of comedy. If it was not for Subbaraju- Brahmi- Ali trio, the second half would have dipped further.
The first half was stale and routine with the regular elements of romance, comedy, fights etc and the second half was another routine with some saving comedy.
The film doesn’t have much to appeal to the masses or the classes. Except for the glowing skin of Hansika and the comedy track, the film is just another chip of the old block. This will sink at the box office.
