Who is Mahalaxmi?? What is problem between Ghana, Dhanush and Mahalaxmi?? forms the rest of story.

Cast and Performance

Allu Arjun is terrific in his role. He carried whole movie on his shoulders. He pulled of his mass role with super conviction. Adhi Pinisetty is ruthless in his terms of performance as a ruthless villain in the name of Dhanush. Boyapati made him a complementing villain for Allu Arjun. Catherine Tresa is average in her role. Rakul Preet Singh is a bit more on emotion in her role and performed accordingly.Rajeev Kanakala is fantastic in his role. Annapurna as Allu Arjun’s grandmother is nice. Jayaprakash, Srikanth, Brahmanandham, Prudhvi, Sai Kumar, Pradeep Rawat, Jayapraksh Reddy, Adarsh Balakrishna, Surekha Vani, Vidyu Raman and others are good to the extent of the role they are given.

Story of the movie is routine. Screenplay is mediocre and is gripping at places. Dialogues are okay.

Technical Departments

Songs composed by SS Thaman are well received by audience. They are catchy and created waves. His background score is superb and elevated to a mass level. Cinematography by Rishi Punjabi is nice and visuals are treat to watch. Editing is good, but should have chopped some scenes out. Work of editor can be experienced in intro scene of Allu Arjun itself. Stunts and action sequences composed by various masters are fantastic and will be well received by masses and are of Boyapati mark. Production values of Geetha Arts are super rich.


  • Allu Arjun as Ghana
  • Adhi Pinisetty as Dhanush
  • Oora Mass Action Blocks
  • Background score by Thaman SS


  • Routine Story
  • Mediocre Screenplay


Movie begins in Boyapati’s mass formula followed by well conceived Allu Arjun’s introduction in which action movies are well choreographed backed up by rich visuals and nice edit pattern. This half goes in a formulaic screenplay with a comedy scene and a love scene with songs at regular intervals. Screenplay is a big let down till the court scene and from the court scene it gains momentum. Fight scene after court scene gives much required elevation to the movie but “It’s a private party” song which comes after this acts as a speed breaker despite it’s well composed moves. Interval block is purely a mass show of Allu Arjun in regular Boyapati’s location, a temple and his trademark heroic dialogues. This half is average with its mediocre screenplay. Second half starts with a flash back. There is no change in the screenplay which went awry in the first half of the first half itself and and gained momentum in the latter half of first half and go into its regular awry way in second half. This movie is a oora mass commercial entertainer from Boyapati Sreenu with Allu Arjun which has its pros and cons stuffed together. Below average second half and it’s last 30 mins, mediocre screenplay are spoilers of the movie. To sum up, it’s a Allu Arjun’s Oora Mass Show!!
