successful in this form the rest of the story?
A story of 1980s basing on true
incidents has been narrated in a good way. But the essence of grudge and
revenge went lagging somewhere. The film goes on with a very slow pace with
pale narration. Sri Praveen (director) took good amount of time to establish
the plot and failed to drive audience into the story. He has devoted maximium
amount of time for songs rather concentrating on his conflict.
Actually, this movie tests the
patience of audience. Chaitanya Krishna did his performance with good ease. Few
emotions made audience roll out tears too. Songs, music and BGM were awesomely
scored by Nandan. Chandini, though it is her debut film in Telugu, acted very
well. Fights look natural and camera work is appreciable. The only thing that
ruined the minds of audience is Story lagging.
Chaitanya Krishna performed
very well and for sure he will be critically acclaimed for his role. Chandini
is good in her role. Naagineedu and Rao Ramesh did justice to their respective
This is certainly not a film to
be made by a talented person who proudly says he is a student of RGV, who was
certainly the best director of the Indian film industry. Everything went wrong
in this film starting from its middling screenplay to a jerry-built treatment.
There is not a single point which can be spoken about the film or one
particular sequence which can be remembered for its slow narration.
The sequences fail to spark
some interest in the audience. the entire first half and the flash back episode
in the second half is totalled dragged till the end. Cinematography by
Vishwadeva & Satish is clean. Cinematographers & Director must appreciated
for their effort for finding such localities.
Music by Nandan Raj gives a
remainder of various hit tracks. Transformation of scenes is not that promising
in the film. Editor should have taken sufficient care regarding the
transformation scenes. Fights in the film are very ordinary. Production values
A one-time watcher and Not for entertainment lovers.
