Director Kishore Tirumala’s storyline line is simple and tried to narrate the film based on five important characters. His narration is slow during the first half but the latter half has a few connecting scenes for youth. In one word, Kishore Tirumala succeded partially is executing the film.
Coming to artists performance, Sai Tej is good in his role as a desperate guy. He improved a lot compared to the previous film and his beard looks add freshness to the character he portrayed. Kalyani as a reserved girl and Nivetha as an independent woman did justice to their roles.
Sunil gets a meaty role and performed convincingly in the given role. Vennal Kishore shines yet again in his hilarious role. His part in the second half is a plus for the film. Finally, Posani as Sai’s father is good and delivers a natural performance.
