the entire proceedings of the first half where as Sumanth
got lots of footage in the second half. Srihari donned
a two-pronged role that has action episodes with the
rivals and sentimental scenes with sister. Srihari is
excellent in his histrionics. Sumanth
is perfect as the loyal man. His performance in hospital
scene and challenging Bhaskar scene is of top class
and has tremendous mass punch. Anushka
is beautiful. Suman donned
the role of cop who tries to convict the male leads.
Kota Srinivasa Rao is OK
in the role of an opportunist.
- screenplay - direction: The backdrop for the story
of the film is inspired by blockbuster faction films.
The story has good commercial point. Direction by Samudra
is good in parts. But he could not get the scenes stitched
in a smooth way. The screenplay of the film is tentative
most of the times. Narration of the film is little contrived.
departments: Cinematography by Vasu is good. Dialogues
by Swamiji - Vijay are heavy most of the times. Fights
by Kanal Kannan are partly good. Melodies scored by
Kamalakar are good. However the fast beat songs does
not make much impact. Editing of the film would have
been smooth. The graphics work and color grading were
not handled well.
First half of the film is OK. The second half slows
down due to uneven handling of love episodes and the
conflict between the friends. Plus points of the film
are performances of Srihari and Sumanth. The negative
points are overdose of fights and heavy dialogues. This
film has scope to do well in B and C centers by attracting
masses. This film opened with fabulous openings.
