Though the movie story is routine and predictable in nature but the high end graphics used for the movie would definitely pull the audience to the theaters especially the performance of Divya Spanadana is one of the major highlight and presence of Vishnu Vardhan is also a positive point. We can’t movie our eyes on from Divya’s performance. The movie can be worth watching if you like Graphics.
Ramya: She has given her best shot in the career. This is the first time that she sported in such a character and did her best.
Director Kodi Ramakrishna is known for his fantasy movies and has put a good one in his kitty. The high end graphics were neat but few are just overdone. The music given by Gurukiran is not actually so great while the BGM is okay. Editor Jhonny Harsha has done a clean work. The cinematography wasn’t so good while it could have been much better. Screenplay was good.
