Mahesh Babu's best performance till date
4 October 2007 | by (India) – See all my reviews

A fantastic movie. Mahesh Babu was simply brilliant. The director Puri Jagannath has obviously put in a lot of hard work into the script of the movie. And how he succeeded!!!!!

The movie VCD/DVD is worth a buy. All the songs of the movie, especially the title track (Jagadame) and "Deva Devuda" are good. The action part was slightly exaggerated but thats accepatable. Another highlight of the movie was Prakash Raj performance. Sayaji Shinde as the DCP was also very lively and the scenes of the press conferences are very good. The movie is slightly boring in the middle but that is made up by a thrilling finish. The comedy track was average.

Overall a must watch movie especially for PRINCE MAHESH FANS!!!!!!
