Cast and Performance
Newcomer Vijay Dharan Datla did an average job as compared to many newcomers as a main lead. He tried his level best to live up to the character. Deeksha Panth did good job. Though she is limited for songs only. She looks glamorous on screen in village outfits. LB Sriram did a good job as father of hero. Dhanraj, Naveen Neni, Shakalaka Shankar and others tried to generate laughter but fails as the scenes written for them are of outdated comedy. The one who did as a villain is good. He performed well in his role.
Plot line of the story by Vijay Chowdary Tripuraneni is nice. It is a village romantic comedy mixed with thrilling elements. Scenes written to generate laughter seem to be outdated and pale. Screenplay written for the movie is average. Audience gets bored easily with pale comedy and lagging screenplay. Dialogues by Nivas are average. Conflicts written are old but good. Overall, it’s an not so good attempt.
Sunil Kashyap, who is going places with his combo with Puri Jagannadh, scored music for this movie. His work is just average and songs scored by him cannot be remembered after the movie. Background music by Y.P.Chaitanya is good. What depth lacks in scenes and movie is somehow added by his background score. Karthik Ghattamaneni, who is in great demand for low and medium budgeted movies worked as cinematographer for this movie. He tried his best to show brilliant visuals with what he was given. He covered village locales in a superb way. Editing by Madhu G Reddy is average. Action choreographed by Joshua is good. Production values are good.
First half begins with Sarkar, negative protagonist planning to exchange his fake currency with original one’s. After this it shifts to a village of Sreenu and love scenes between him and his sister in law are shown with two back to back songs and many comedy scenes involving Dhanraj, Naveen Neni, Satya which fails to entertain. It ends with a break up of hero and heroine. Second half begins with emotions connected with money and a song about the monetary differences created by god among people. It goes and goes in search of pendrive by Sarkar. To sum up, doesn’t live upto its title.
