Roles and Performances:
Vishnu Manchu is in a dire need for success. We can see that effort to keep his mark in acting. As a priest, Vishnu looks apt and his comedy timing is to be appreciated. But, the role is not that well-written and hence doesn’t work out well. Pragya Jaiswal who appeared in a royal role in Kanche appears as a girl-next-door in this movie. She has done justification for her role.
After a long time, Brahmanandam has got a role with decent length. But, the comedy is not striking. There is nothing new to be explored in the comedy track.
Other actors like Praveen, Prabhas Seenu, 30 years Indusry Prudhvi, Posani were not properly utilized. The villains are okay and justified their roles well.
Vishnu Manchu who is trying well to give entertainment to the audience need to introspect. The selection of unique stories from different genres may help him.
Director Nageswar Reddy is known for his comical take over the movies and his write-ups are known for their entertainment factors. Though there is enough entertainment factor, because the movie was postponed for multiple times, nothing seems interesting. Writer Venkata Krishna Malladi has done a good work.
No Logic in the story and no proper plot. The screenplay disappoints too. Touted to be a comedy entertainer, there is nothing much served. First Half is better compared to the uninteresting second half. Production values are good. The Camera work is good. As half of the movie is shot in the US, the locations are good and capture of the lens is fine. Music is in sync with the narration, but not that good.
Final Verdict: Skip. Even without expectations, this movie disappoints.
