A film with suspense and sensible dialogues
11 March 2008 | by (India) – See all my reviews

The film starts with a note of suspense, with the local party leader getting killed by the hero. The film is about how he finds the actual culprit. In the process, he gets into a lovable family and loves the hospitality shown by the members of the family. The film has an excellent cast with everyone preforming their role with sensibility. The act of Mahesh Babu and Prakash Raj is note-worthy. although, the film starts off with a sequence of criminal acts, it enters into a family drama afterwards. Thrivikram has done an excellent job with his dialogues. He also earned good name with his directional skills. As a whole, its a worth watch film for everyone. Already it has bagged good part of audience and hope it continues
