A noted tale, the story begins with Seenu (ravi teja) who likes to be called as Don Seenu only since he is a big fan of Amitabh Bachchan and his ‘Don’ film. He dreams of becoming a don one day and soon, he comes to the city to fulfill his goal. He gets to join the gang of Machiraju (sayaji) and the don gives him a job. Seenu should go to Germany and win the heart of a girl who is the sister of Narsing (srihari), another big don and arch rival of Machiraju. Seenu goes with Ramarao (ali) and falls in love with Deepthi (shriya). However, it is only after coming back to India that he realizes a shocking truth and from then on, a new game begins. What happens after that forms the rest of the story.
The director has come up with a known tale but then his presentation worked well and so did the narration. The dialogues were entertaining, the script was okay and the screenplay was neat. Background score was good but songs were not upto the mark. Cinematography was excellent. Costumes were trendy, editing could have been better and art department was creative. Ravi Teja was his usual best and he did his bit with élan. Shriya is awesome and eyes pop out whenever she is on the screen, she is simply irresistible, Anjana was alright. Srihari did his bit as required, Sayaji was regular, Brahmanandam was good, Ali was apt, Venu Madhav also gave few smiles, Mahesh Manjrekar was convincing, the others like Kasturi, Surekha Vani, Sudharani were there to fill the gaps.
The film is basically a commercial treat and it is packed with commercial elements in a good way. While the first half is good with elements of comedy, romance, good locations etc, the second half gets dragged due to unwanted songs and scenes. The climax was also not that great. It must be mentioned that the Shriya factor will work a lot to this movie. Overall, this is a treat for the commercial audience and masses will like it. The box office spells an above average collection for this one.
