Nara Rohit’s role as a Police Officer brings lot of proceedings to the story with his stylish action and caring attitude. Sree Vishnu as an actor has proved his individuality as Railway Raju. Tanya Hope has made her debut acting decently. Brahmji has acted very well in the first half and the second half is filled with controversies between Nara Rohit and Sree Vishnu.
Sai Karthick has made the songs not so good and they have acted as speed breakers. Background score is terrific. Rerecording has taken the scenes to a higher level. All the dialogues are natural without any forced philosophy. Director Sagar K Chandra has made an honest attempt rather than select safe genres like love stories or mass films. Though the film had its drops in between, minuses are not visible due to strong content. The emotional climax has added power to the story. The screenplay of the film is very impressive and gets engaging as the climax is ended with a good twist.
The film is set in the backdrop of 1992 to1996 in Hyderabad. Naxal movements used to be in full swing and globalization effects started having its influence. The way the director has related both of them as a young man’s dream of becoming a star cricketer has really made a good impact. However the director has made a good choice by not indulging in lecturing on naxalism, globalization, privatization etc. The director every now and then gives a twist and keeps the audience alert. The story has no hero and villain, but circumstances make them as hero and villain.
