Narasimha (Bala Krishna) is a strict police officer
who does not mind making his own rules to bring justice
to the public. Once he was indirectly affected by the
goon Dharma Bhiksham (Prakash Raj) which costs him his
sister and lots of properties of his native village.
But Dharma Bhiksham does not know that it was Lakshmi
Narasimha who got affected by him.
a few months, Lakshmi Narasimha is transferred to Vijayawada.
Dharma Bhiksham rules the mafia world from Vijayawada.
Though, a strict police officer - he compromises with
Dharma Bhiksham and takes bribes to the tune of one
and half crores. He takes the bribes and then invests
all the money into rehabilitating his natvie village
affected by Dharma Bhiksham. Dharma Bhiksham comes to
know about it and rebels against Lakshmi Narasimha.
The rest of the story is all about how Lakshmi Narasimha
puts an end to the life of Dharma Bhiksham using illegal
Krishna: Bala Krishna is looking extremely handsome
in the police attire. He is pretty romantic in teasing
scenes with Asin. He is excellent in emotional scenes,
especially in the one where he utters ferocious dialogues
with Ahuti Prasad before climax to an exhilarating effect.
He did well in the 'Jadakotti' and 'Neetoti Naaku panundi'
dance numbers. Balayya did well in fights department
Asin is tender in this film. She has more footage in
the 1st half due to the love episode. She also exposed
her cleavage in a couple of romantic scenes compared
to her earlier films. Sunitha dubbed her voice.
Prakash Raj is OK as Dharmabhiksham.
Krishna Bhagavan provided
some entertainment through one-liners. Sunil
had a separate comedy track. Rakshita
is negligible in the first song of the film. Viswanath
acted as father of Bala Krishna. Ahuti
Prasad got a decent role as commissioner. MS
Narayana is wasted. Duvvasi
Mohan is fair. Devi Charan's
character went unnoticed.
Story of the film is a personal revenge theme with social
message in it. We have seen several cop stories hitting
marquee last year like Seetayya, Inspector and Shivamani.
And this film is definitely better than the other films
- direction: Screenplay of the film is OK. The direction
of the film has mass orientation with a tinge of stylishness.
Director Jayant handled quite a few scenes well, especially
the ones where Bala Krishna follows abnormal ways to
get his work done. However, he should have got the emotions
right during the flashback episode of the film, which
paved the way for the entire story to happen. The mass
and action episodes are excessively stuffed in second
half. Jayant should have taken care of the editing of
the film. The total film's duration is 3 hours and 10
Dialogues by Paruchuri brothers are good. There are
pretty good punch dialogues for Bala Krishna as the
story approaches climax. There is one dialogue in this
film ""Kumara Swamy, Venkata Swamy, Narayana
Swamy, Kanaka Swamy, Amara Swamy ani maa amma puttina
biddalaku peru pedithe .. andaru puritilone chani payoaaru.
Naa koduku champe vaadu kaavali kaani
vaadu kaakudadu ani naaku Lakshmi narsimha swamy ani
pettindi'. This dialogue is uttered 3 times in film.
It had a little effect when done during the start of
film. It was repeated 2nd time before interval and it
had good effect. During the climax of the film, the
same dialogue got terrific applause.
Music by Mani Sharma is of typical Bala Krishna's style.
These songs are impressive when you watch along with
the visuals than when you listen to audio. The 2nd song
(Andamlo Andhra Kosta - a melody shot in NZ) is cool.
The 3rd song (Jadakotti) steals the show. Last song
'Neetoti Naaku panundi' is racy. Background score is
good. The first song intriduces hero in a charming style.
departments: Cinematography by Steadycam Prasad
and VSR Swamy is good. Editing by Marthand K Venkatesh
should have been crisp.
First half of the film is entertaining. Second half
is OK. The interval bang is smooth. The flashback episode
should have had more punch. The second half is heavily
loaded with mass elements. The duration of film should
be trimmed by a good 30 minutes to make the film more
crisp. Bala Krishna's terrific performance is going
to be the biggest strength of the film. And it would
entertain the masses very well.
Talk: The film opened with hit talk everywhere.
This film is expected to be a good hit film after 3
years (Narasimha Naidu) for Bala Krishna. The range
of film would be depend on how relatively other Sankranthi
