The young and vibrant Nikhil Siddarth has come up with another solo venture and the title has been quite appealing. His pairing up with the giggly beauty Swetha Basu Prasad is another highlight. Whether it has been impressive or not, let us see.

Rajahmundry is the town where all this is happening and here is Rajesh, an intelligent young man who specializes in taking and making loans throughout the area. His father (Kasi Vishwanath) is a school teacher. Things take a turn when Shruti (Swetha) lands up at Rajesh’s place due to a dog chase and in this process, she drops a very important chain by mistake. The chain has a connection with dreaded Narendar Shetty (Ajay). What happens from there forms the rest of the story.

Nikhil has come up with a high adrenaline performance and he is the soul for the movie. He has shouldered it throughout in a good way and will score the brownie points.

Shweta Basu looks sweet but there is an alarming rate of weight increase in her, she looks chubby and if she doesn’t cut down on that, then her offers also will get cut.

Ajay is tall, he is talented and has those flashes of brilliance in between. He does justice to his role.

Venu Madhav made his presence felt with his regular antics but then it could have been better if his character was given good depth.

Raghu Babu, though his presence was quite brief, gave a good act and generated few laughs from the front benchers.

Kasi Viswanath was standard, Dharmavarapu was okay, Ahuti Prasad was alright, Anitha sizzles with her hot looks but the song could have been made well. The others did their bit as required but nothing significant in terms of contribution from them.

The film runs on a beaten track and though the thought of the makers is good, it was not executed correctly on the screen. Flaws are evident clearly in the direction and the narrative aspects, even cracks in script and screenplay were observed.

If it was not for Nikhil and his energetic performance, the fate of this venture would have been sealed in less than a week. The technical aspects are weak and the production values are low.

So success at the box office is possible only if Nikhil’s performance can pull in some more crowds.

Bottom Line: Could have been better
