2. Hilarious Writing
4. Camera Work
1. Weak Second Half
2. Regular Story
Debutant director Chandra Mohan didn’t try anything new. Apparently, he has opinion of less risk factor with formulaic cinema. Thus, he picked a regular story and included all commercial elements for all section of audiences. He penned Sharwanand’s character remarkably. The director showed how much impact Lord Sri Krishna created on Sharwa in starting episodes. Then, he believes that, police are the real god, so decides to become a cop. The police training episodes were shown hilariously. In fact, the sequences materialized as entertaining because of Sharwa’s presence. Then, he falls flat for Lavanya after joining as SI in a rural area. The love track was not so unique, but it was still enjoyable. Then, movie becomes a bit serious after Sharwa is shifted to Hyderabad where his subordinates are killed in a bomb blast, though there was merriment here and there. While the sequences of Ravi Kishan appear serious, there was laughter in most of the sequences where Sharwa was seen. Though the story narration resembles of several old Telugu movies, director made it look fresh with his entertaining story portrayal. Chandra Mohan included few scenes only to please fans of Chiranjeevi, Pawan Kalyan etc. and the way he dealt these sequences were enthralling. Good thing is the film has no fights, even during climax.
Sharwanand steals the show with his stellar performance. Wherever Sharwa is seen entertainment is guaranteed. Same energy levels are seen from start to end. Though film turned serious in second half, Sharwa provides some relief with his mesmerizing show. He was remarkable in police station sequences with Shakalaka Shankar and batch. Lavanya Tripathi is equally good in traditional as well as glamorous avatar. The starlet oozed some oomph in songs is a feast for mass fans. Ravi Kishan has played the role of an evil natured politician effortlessly. He indeed fit the bill perfectly. Apparently, Aksha Pardasany was roped into fill some gap in second half and also to please glamor lovers. Shakalaka Shankar and Brahmaji provide some laughs. Tanikella Bharani was good in a brief role as Sharwa’s father. Other artists were okay.
Director Chandra Mohan penned a regular story, but he took extreme care on treatment. Though there were some boring episodes in second half, we actually don’t feel tedious due to some relaxation every time from Sharwanand. Dialogues penned by the director himself were fabulous. Cinematography by Karthik Ghattamaneni was vivid, wherein Radhan’s background score was fascinating, though he provided pretty average album. Producer Bhogavalli Bapineedu has spent good budget on the project as richness is witnessed in each and every frame.
Radha has many entertaining elements for all section of audiences. Watch the movie with least expectations and you will definitely love it.
