Too Intelligent to understand by common Telugu Audience, but a well-needed makeover for NTR.

Story: Abhiram (NTR) is an NRI who loses his Job and starts a 'Company of Losers'.  He is very close to his dad RameshChandra (Rajendra Prasad) once a richest NRI business magnet in the UK. RameshChandra will be cheated of all his money by Krishnamurthy (Jagapathi Babu ), a rich busiASnessman, who believes that a good businessman is a good cheater.  Abhiram makes a promise to his dad to take down Krishnamurthy. The Cat and mouse game between Abhiram and Krishnamurthy forms the crux of the story.

Acting: NTR is excellent in his new look and is refreshing to watch. He controlled his expressions very well in the movie. He did an excellent job as the loving son and Intelligent Guy tasked to take down a big  businessman.  This movie is a complete and well-needed makeover for him. Rakul Preet Singh looked beautiful and the chemistry between NTR and Rakul worked well. Jagapathi Babu has another author-backed role and Telugu film industry found a gem of a villain.  The scenes between him and NTR are excellent. Rajendra Prasad did well within the boundaries of his role. Srinivas Avasarala, Vennela Kishore, Rajiv Kanakala are adequate.

Techincal: Director Sukumar took a simple story and added an intelligent screenplay. The intelligent part is where he stretched the line a little and became cocky in the execution of the script. He spoiled the soul of the movie by concentrating too much on intelligence. Music by Devi Sri is excellent and songs will be chartbusters for a long time. Cinematography by Vijay C Chakravarthy is excellent with rich visuals. The production by B. V. S. N. Prasad is Superior and made no compromise on the quality of the movie.

Analysis: The movie makes you feel you are watching a Hollywood movie but at the same time it feels like the soul is missing in the movie. An extra care should have been taken in designing the intelligent concepts used in the movie so the common audience can comprehend.


  • NTR, Jagapathi Babu
  • Music
  • New Feel
  • Dances


  • Too Intelligent
  • Weak Story
  • Low Entertainment

Box office: The movie will do very well in both class centers and the overseas market  though it will have an upward battle at mass centers.

Verdict:  Watch it if you like intelligent Hollywood movies and anyone else can try it at their leisure.
