Flop Movie
13 August 2006 | by See all my reviews

Inspired by the Hindi movie 'Main Azad Hoon' which was a remake of the English movie 'Meet John Doe'. This movie attempts to mix some humor and masala with a serious theme but fails to succeed. Nagarjuna and Soundarya deliver good performance. Shilpa Shetty provides the occasional song and dance. There is also the family sentiment part which is essential for any telugu movie. One would have probably expected more out of a movie with such a good star cast and supporting staff. The music is okay but not enough to save the movie.

Raghuvaran as always a pretty good playing the villain. Prakash Raj plays the cop who is out to discover the true identity of Azad. I believe the movie could have succeeded with the telugu viewer if they had stuck to the original comedy theme of 'Meet John Doe'.
