Crime Comedy Gone Haywire.

Story: The story revolves  around the story of a diamond, dog, and Raja (Sharwanand), an unemployed youth chased by a bunch of gangs. Why all these gangs are behind Raja and what has the diamond and dog has to with  Raja forms the crux of the story.

Acting: Sharwanand did well but pulled back by a week story. He did his best to keep the movie interesting. Surabhi is passable. Urvashi is too loud and not used well. Saptagiri's comedy did not  work well.

Techincal: After a successful debut Movie Venkatadiri Express Merlapaka Gandhi now tries his hand in crime comedy and failed in getting a good screenplay which he managed very well in Venkatadiri Express. Music by Praveen Lakkaraju is the only saving grace of the movie. Cinematography by Karthik Ghattamaneni is good. The production by UV Creations is rich.

Analysis: The whole movie revolves around a single thread and depends heavily on a gripping screenplay. The movie doesn't have either a fast-paced screenplay nor novelty.


  • Music


  • Weak Story
  • Low Entertainment
  • Too slow

Box office: The only way this movie can survive is cashing in on the holidays and after that it will find very hard to stay in the theaters.

Verdict: You can skip it.
