Director Pradeep Nandan has penned an interesting story for his first movie.Narrative style is quite good. Director might have inspired from hollywood movies narrative styles. Dialogues are not bad. The movie started on a dull note, picked up pace in the middle. A lot of unnecessary scenes should have been chopped off. Back ground music synced very well with the visuals. Cinematography is good. Production values are alright.
Even director himself Pradeep Nandan played lead role. He exudes alot of confidence in his dialogue delivery, Stunts and did some good moves. In certain scenes he imitated pawan kalyan.Khenisha chandran got minimal role, She did a fair job on her debut. Small screen actor Sridhar has supported very well. Abhinav Gomatam has offered a few chuckles to the audience. Shivaji raja did a cameo role. Rest of the cast has done a good job.
On the whole, pradeep has failed to regale the audience with his first film. It would have been better a movie if some unnecessary scenes chopped off. Business wise, it may do average business at the box office.one time watchable movie .
