Critic Rating: (2.75/5)


A hilarious journey, the story is about four petty thieves Babji (Naresh), Varaprasad (Khayyum), Balu (Venu Madhav) and Girija (Ruthika) who do all sorts of things to con people. Their mission is to make money and help the people of the slum that they live in. However, trouble begins when the owner (Jeeva) of the land comes and gives them a time of three months before which they are to pay the price for the land. Babji decides to go for a big plan and reaches Vizag with his team, he hatches a plan to steal a bank and he is successful in doing so. They take the loot and hide it in a building under construction and due to freak incident they end up staying out of Vizag for a month. By the time they get back, the building turns out to be police control room. They decide to make a plan and luck helps them in the form of a new cop. Babji decides to take up the role of Krishnamohan and then begins his search for the money that they kept it hidden. In this process, he also comes across Archana (Sayali) who is the daughter of the commissioner. What follows is a roller coaster ride of turns and twists which ends up with many people getting involved.


The director has come out with a good plot and scored the maximum in the narration. Even the presentation was simple, the real credit goes to the dialogues and the script while the screenplay was equally good. Music did its bit and the background score was suiting the situation in a big way. Camerawork was professional and the foreign locations were captured well. Editing was crisp and the other departments were also upto the mark. Naresh was his regular self and looked no different, however this time equal space was given to the other characters. Sayali was sexy, slender and had that delicate elegance. She is good, Ruthika was ravishing and few angles really show her oomph and sex appeal. Venu was good, Harshavardhan was wasted, Khayyum was active. Brahmanandam was regular, Krishna Bhagawan was his casual self, Jayaprakash Reddy did his bit with élan, Jeeva was there for a brief time. The others were alright.


The film has taken the central plot from the Hollywood hit ‘Blue Streak’ starring Martin Lawrence and used their creativity to come up with a native flavour. While the first half went off with flying colors and many humor situations, the second half got slowed down and it was dragged unnecessarily before ending up with a message and a good climax. The comedy quotient is upto the brim and the dialogues were very hilariously written. The film will have a good show at the B and C centres without fail and a good word of mouth will take it along in the A centres too.

Verdict: Good and hearty entertainer, can be watched once for sure!
