Krishna (Ravi Teja) is a young man from Vijayawada who is an MSc in Computer Science but job less. He is such a nice man that he sacrifices his job for a poor needy candidate and lives at the cost of his elder brother and sister-in-law (Chandramohan and Sudha). 

He loves Sandhya (Trisha), the sister of Shinde (Shayaji Shinde). Babi (Brahmanadam) is also a brother to Shinde. As Shinde has an enemy Jakka (Mukul Dev) he keeps Sandhya with Babi’s family in Vijayawada. When Sandhya comes to her elder brother Shinde’s house in Hyderabad, Krishna also follows her. 

In a talk with Shinde, Krishna comes to know that Sandhya’s family has a peril from Jakka and starts his mission to put an end to him. Rest of the movie goes on in entertainment packed action narration. 

Ravi Teja did his best and there is no fall in the graph of his energy levels. He is perfect with respect to bearing, dance and action episodes as well. 

Trisha looted the hearts of all the audiences. Audiences have watched her in songs by leaning forward from their chairs. (Her tattoo below the shoulder also appeared well in a few scenes!!!). She is voluptuous and perfectly in sink in chemistry with Ravi Teja. 

Brahmanadam’s comedy deserves a great mention and he made the film a laughing treat. Sunil also spilled humor in his style. Others are ok. 

Cinematography stands unique in the movie and many scenes were proved impressive. Music by Chakry is also exciting. But the heavy orchestration swallowed the lyrical clarity. 

Bollywood actor Mukul Dev is ok in his role as villain. In fact there is no big role of histrionics in his characterization. He is like anybody else but didn’t prove his uniqueness.  

VV Vinayak reached his target by perfectly aiming on the masses. His efforts have reached a mark. 

The movie proves to be a first relief in 2008. It entertained through out with enough of humor, packed with high-dose action elements. Ravi Teja’s energy is pervaded in entire movie. Trisha’s glamour sizzled on screen and pulled the crowds towards the screen. Brahmanadam’s comedy, Sunil’s humor and Jaya Prakash Reddy’s villainy slapsticks entertained all segments of audiences. 

First half of the movie runs with right momentum making the audiences laugh and enjoy the narration with brisk screenplay. Second half adds action episodes in big way accompanied with comedy wherever necessary. There is no scene where the audiences get irritated. Climax get over dosed with action scenes but gelled into the narration. 

Choreography is interesting and perfectly in tune with the energy levels and body language of Ravi Teja. The song ‘Nee Sokumada Nee Jimmada’ is choreographed well with humorous and romantic elements. The last song was directly copied from the ‘Appadi Podu’ song from Tamil film ‘Gilli’.

VV Vinayak appears to have changed the name of heroine in his film this time. He named Trisha as Sandhya. In almost all of his movies his heroine’s name was Nandini in general. 

Coming to the action scenes, Ravi Teja coming out from the buried soil is something hard to believe. Director tried to give some reasoning by showing that rain eroded the soil. Leaving a few logics in action episodes behind, the film stands to be an ‘ok’. 

On a whole the movie is an entertaining piece with formula based action elements.
