Deva katta came in limelight with prasthnam which did a good business at boxoffice. But this time he has written the weak story which is based on the 90′s circumstances in vijayawada. These kind of subject has less scope for entertainment. Deva has written some super dialogues which are the only saving grace. Screenplay is not upto the mark. Editor goutham raju has not done a fair job, few scenes could have been trimmed. Art direction department has done a good job. Cinematography is not alright. Anup rubens composed BGM is good. Production values are just okay.
Naga Chaitanya tried his best to show mass acting skills. His dialogue delivery is okay.Samantha has confined to songs and first half, She didn’t get much chance to prove her mettle. This pair ( Chaitanya and samantha) has earned alot of success with ‘ye maya chesave’ and ‘manam’, but this time they have failed to repeat the same magic. Nandu did a fine job. Few actors have been wasted like saikumar, brahmi and JP. James didn’t look like a demon. The supporting cast is not bad.
This one remains a damp squib at box office because of weak plot. One time watchable just for dialogues.
