A simple storyline:: Boy (Nitin) meets girl (Neha) in college, both fall in love and the fly-in-the-soup is the girl's father (Prakash Raj) who is a powerful mafia leader.
Inspite of being a run-out-of-mill story, the movie keeps you glued to the seats purely owing to the novel treatment.
There are ample doses of one-liners and wonderfully executed comedy sequences which blend seamlessly into the storyline (USP of the movie). Hummable songs by R P Patnaik are backed up with glossy picturisation. Action sequences are handled well. As in Tagore, once again the director portrays and glorifies the youth-power.
Nitin has certainly matured since his Jayam days but has a long way to go (he carries a wooden expression all times). Neha is simply passable. Venu Madhav's comedy is good. Noteworthy performance by Rajan P Dev who carried the role as the girl's grand-father with poise and grandeur. Can someone tell Prakash Raj that his acting is simply proves that he is not afraid of the camera. In plain words - he is "painfully loud". Period.
All in all, its a mixed basket of all the ingredients which qualify to make 3-hours of entertaining fare for the audience. As the director blends each ingredient to another, let me tell you that he does not lose sight of the storyline.
Story - Screenplay - Direction is under the baton of VV Vinayak is a dark horse, one to look out for.
The movie is targeted towards the audience who can bunk a few classes from college and certainly it shall appeal them in all respects.
