I already had low hopes on the movie, given Meher Ramesh has directed the movie after the disaster 'shakti'. His previous debacles can only be attributed to his poor directional abilities. The director proves yet again that 'style' without 'substance' does not have any effect on the output of the film.

Venkatesh tries his best given the limited scope to perform, after a long time Tapsee gets a reasonable time on the screen and she performs well. She danced with a lot of passion in the item song. M.S Narayana and Jaya Prakash Reddy and other comedians tried their best to evoke some laughs despite a poor comedy track.

Story wise there is nothing novel, just that the treatment should have been different. Movies with similar story lines 'Baadshah', 'dookudu' etc., worked because of excellent comedy mixed with the story line, that is where Meher Ramesh suffers, some of his comedy sequences are extremely irritating and test your patience. Sentiment does not work out and is comic at times.

Meher Ramesh tried to use the excellent histrionics of venkatesh in comedy and sentiment, but he ended up with a half cooked script and those scenes did not come out as expected and it all backfired.

Production values of the movie as we can see are high, but the producer wasted money in a substance-less movie.

Music by Thaman is peppy and goes well with the story-line, in fact songs are the only ones which are decent in the movie.

Probably it's the worst movie in Venkatesh's career, all credit to Meher ramesh.
