Story: Veera Raghava Reddy's ( NTR Jr.) father Narapa Reddy ( Naga Babu) is killed by Basi Reddy (Jagapathi Babu) due to Seema Faction. Veera tries to avenge his father's death but pulled back by his Grandmother (Supriya Pathak). After realizing the destruction the faction wars cause Raghava sets out to find a solution to the problem. In this process, he meets Aravindha (Pooja Hegde). How did Aravindha guide Veera Raghava to his destiny forms the rest of movie?
Acting: NTR Jr as Veera Raghava Reddy did a commendable job but was mishandled by Trivikram. He excelled in dances and fights and was in his Element in emotional scenes. Pooja Hegde as Aravindha tried to be cute but couldn't pull it off. Her role brings back memories of Samantha from A Aa Movie. Jagapathi Babu as Basi Reddy and the main antagonist is raw and believable. He pulled off the role with an ease. Sunil as Neelambari has nothing special to write about. Naveen Chandra as Bal Reddy (Basi Reddy's Son) is good. Rao Ramesh and Subhalekha Sudhakar as Politicians were adequate. It nice to see Subhalekha Sudhakar on screen after a long gap. Senior Naresh as a Criminal lawyer is repetitive. It feels like his character is an extension of his role form A Aa movie. Bhramaji as Basi Reddy's henchman has short but a key role. He played it well. Supriya Pathak as Veera Raghava's grandmother did a good job. Naga Babu as Narapa Reddy is ok. Devayani and Sitara were wasted. Eshwari Rao gets a key role a the tail end of the movie which she handled well.
Technical: Director Trivikram Srinivas succeeded in getting some scenes right but the writer Trivikram failed him. To cover up the wafer-thin storyline, which is revealed in the first 15 minutes of the movie, he added to many explanations shots that are preachy. Even the song placements in the second half felt out of place. The most talked about song Peniviti was forced. The dialogues are good. Music By S.S.Thaman is good within the limitations he has. He gave a commendable background score. His held a lot of scenes with his music. P. S. Vinod Cinematography is very good. Editor Naveen Nooli could have done a better job. The production by Haarika & Hassine Creations is good.
Analysis: Trivikram Srinivas took a time-tested reforming Seema from Faction story and tried to give his own spin on it. But looks the writer in him got carried away and injected to many lengthy and boring scenes. At times it feels like we are watching a philosophical movie than a commercial movie. Even the ending is not justified. The Hero tries to get rid of a faction but leaves the door open at the end. He also lost the plot in the end. He tried to solve the Seema Faction problem but magnified it though Jagapathi Babu's role at the tail end of the movie. That kind of threw very bad light on whole Seema.
Box office: The movie may work in the domestic market but will have a tough time Overseas.
Verdict: Avoid It unless you are a fan of NTR and Preachy movies
Bottom Line: Nobody can change Seema Faction
