Analysis and Reviews
Love is unpredictable, indescribable, and destructive and becomes valid with the love track of this film, whose scenes are asinine. This movie set an interest among movie lovers with its teasers and trailers. The presence of star comedian Sunil adds immense masala to the film. Initially, the film promised to be an edge-of-the-seat detective thriller but failed in fulfilling the requirement. In written form, the story seems to be strong ad attractive, but on reels, its execution falters, making for a good watch.
The movie is a good suspense love thriller, starts on an exciting note and in the end half things get more interesting. The film gets hiked after the entering of Sunil as a detective. The heroine (Vaishali Raj) played her role well and justified the emotional scenes. A negative character in the film named Himaja also justifies her role with her acting skills and perfectly shows up in the negative shade. Another character Preeti has also performed well in her negative role and has a good screen presence.
Being interested in starting the love story falls flat in no time because the story has no depth and seriousness. Characters, their performance, and the dubbing of the supporting cast look horrible because characters are not properly established and executed. There is a lack of connection between critical characters to the story, and during the investigation, they are left alone. Kancharapalem Kishore plays a horrible role as he spoils everything with his overreaction. His dubbing could have been better than his acting. Paramount importance is given to the detective played by Sunil. Even cops are kept aside in the case, and like a small boss, a detective leads it, which seems odd.
The editing & screenplay of the film could be better, but the production values & screenplay are good than this. BGM and music also fail to connect with the viewer. Due to the lousy execution by Balraju (director), they disappointed viewers and dropped the film in the first half but tried to make some sense in the second half but failed.
Overall, this film has a good plot but lacks execution and dubbing. Sunil tried to save the film in the second half, but the effort was not enough to save the film from sinking. At some point, the film becomes so confusing that the viewer is left scratching its head.
