Director Anil Ravipudi has penned the comedy action entertainer for Kalyan ram in the view of showing the actor in a different angle,Which we haven’t seen him before. The first half has alot of fun to the viewers and the second half offered nandamuri trade mark action sequences. Anil has managed to keep the viewers in engaging mode with hackneyed narrative style. The captain of the ship did his best to balance the action and comedy at equal levels. Editing is okay. Cinematographer did great job. Sai karthik composed music and background score pumped up the visuals. Production values by NTR arts are good.
There is no big hit for kalyan ram after ‘Athanokkade’. So, the actor pinned all his hopes on patas. This is the best performance by kalyan ram till date. His dialogue delivery reminds me of balayya. He has improvised his moves as well. New girl in the tinsel town, Shruthi sodhi has less scope to perform, she did a decent job. Dialogue king Sai kumar did a fantabulous jon in a pivotal role. Ashutosh rana’s antagonist role is quite weak. Srinivas reddy, Posani, Shankar have tickled the funny bone of audience. Rest of the cast has supported well.
On the Whole, After a long time,Kalyan ram bagged a decent hit at the box office. Even though the content is quite hackneyed, The director has extracted the finest performances from his cast. Business wise, Patas will increase the bank balance of producer kalyan ram. Go and watch this action-comedy entertainer with friends and family.
