Story: Surya (Allu Arjun) is an angry young man whose dream is to serve on the border. He is kicked out of the army due to his anger issues. As a last chance to achieve his dream he needs to get a signature from a noted Psychologist Ramakrishna Raju (Arjun). How did he achieve that, should be watched on the big screen?
Acting: Allu Arjun excelled in the role of an angry young man. He even created some good humor with his angry attitude. He was at ease in songs and fights. His acting in emotional scenes is good. Anu Emmanuel as the love interest of Surya did well. Her performance in the break-up scenes is good. Arjun who plays the role of famous Psychologist and Dean of a college gets a good role and does well. He performed well in the confrontation scenes. Sarathkumar as the main antagonist is excellent. His introduction scene is handled well. Thakur Anoop Singh is good. Sai Kumar as a retired soldier did well. Charuhasan is good. Boman Irani as Major is adequate. Nadia is wasted. Rao Ramesh, Vennela Kishore, Posani Krishna Murali provide the much needed comic relief.
Technical: Direction by Vakkantham Vamsi is good in parts. The story writer in him did a grave injustice to the director in him. He handled the character establishment and comic episodes well but fell flat while conveying the central point of the movie. A seasoned director could have handled that well. Dialogues are passable. Music by Vishal-Shekhar is good in the songs, though the background score could have been better. Cinematography by Rajeev Ravi and Sushil Choudhary is good. The action episodes were canned well. Editing by Kotagiri Venkateswara Rao could have been better in the tail end of the movie. The production by Sridhar Lagadapati, Bunny Vasu, Sushil Choudhary is rich.
Analysis: The movie starts off well, but director Vakkantham Vamsi takes too much time in establishing the main conflict which drags the movie. The conflict between the lead actors won't happen until the end of the movie. He tried to cram too much into the climax of the movie and one gets a feeling of watching two different movies. The climax is a big let down. This is where the story writer in Vamsi did a grave injustice to the director in him.
Box office: The movie may end up as an average grosser at domestic Market and below average at overseas market.
Verdict: Watchable for Allu Arjun fans.
Bottom Line: Management killed the character
