Storyline

Pandu is a killer for hire, and will accept any contract provided the amount is right. The Police want him for questioning, while the underworld needs him to silence their opponents. No one really knows this assassin's background. It is only Pandu who knows his real identity and he has no intention of sharing it with anyone. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

One great movie!
22 March 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I think that is the best movie made so far in Tollywood.the actor and actress are very talented,the songs are excellent,the story is good and the fights are very realistic.It has won many awards.It has also rewrote 70 years of Telugu film history.It is basically about a cop Krishna Manohar (Mahesh Babu) undercover as a criminal(as Pandu),who pretends as he is a part of the mafia to catch the villains.The leader of the mafia is Ali Bhai (Prakash Raj).Meanwhile he falls in love with Shruti(Ileana D'Cruz) who is being tortured by a corrupt police officer (Ashish Vidyarthi) who happens to be a part of the mafia.If you haven't watched it yet,I would definitely recommend that you watch it as soon as possible.It is a really good movie
