Story: Abhijith Bhargav (Pawan Kalyan ) comes out of exile and joins his own company as Assistant Manager after his Dad and Brother are killed. Did Abhijith succeed in his mission of exposing his family killers forms the rest of the story?
Acting: Pawan Kalyan is in his element in action scenes but the comedy scenes missed his punch. Keerthy Suresh, Anu Emmanuel have roles nothing to talk about. They did their part. But their own dubbing felt very odd. Kushboo did an excellent job as a woman who gets caught in a power struggle. Her screen presence is very good. She was able to hold some scenes just with her expressions. Boman Irani got a good role and he did a good job. Aadhi Pinisetty as villain looked debonaire. Looks like Telugu industry has found a good anti-hero. Tanikella Bharani as hero's uncle fit the bill to tee. Rao Ramesh, Murali Sharma roles (Varma & Sharma) comes as a comic relief but at times went overboard. Sampath Raj is wasted.
Techincal: Director Trivikram Srinivas tried to deal a revenge drama using comedy and suspense. Trying to pull this off he failed. The comedy scenes and suspense scenes overlap and create more confusion. His mark is missing most part of the movie. He showed his genius in glimpses but not enough to hold the movie. The screenplay should have been better. Cinematography by V. Manikandan is excellent. Every frame in the movie looked beautiful. Editing by Kotagiri Venkateswara Rao could have been better. Some scenes felt like we missed something. Music by Anirudh Ravichander is OK. But the songs felt odd on the screen. The background music is good though. Production by Haarika & Hassine Creations is good.
Analysis: The screenplay is a big let down. Revenge drama with comedy and suspense would have worked if the comedy has worked. But it felt like beaten to death routine comedy and has nothing new to offer. The screenplay at times felt like watching Atharintiki Daaredi. The action episodes are good but they happen too fast to even enjoy.
Box office: The movie has a high pre-release business and needs to perform very well over this holiday week to recover some of it.
Verdict: Strictly for Power Star Pawan Kalyan Fans.
Bottom Line: Where is the Plan B?
