Shot to waste money!
15 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie has been based on a few lines of script stretched into three freaking whole hours of useless boring crap. Had it not been for Mahesh I would not have bothered to watch it to the end.

Btw, Mahesh Babu looks horrible with his new hairstyle or whatever. I guess they tried to bring out a raw look to him which failed.

Most of the characters in the film lack true reason. Again, this shows poor script at hand.

Comedy, involving Brahmanandam and Sunil cannot be called so, since they don't even remotely tickle your funny bone.

Its obvious throughout that the people behind the movie tried a mix of Pokiri and Athadu. We even see the same Pokiri villain in a ridiculous avatar. Added to that is a large pool of actors from bollywood, which includes the heroine. I gave this movie 3 only because of the excellent cinematography, and the songs (video+audio)

Watch it only if you are an ardent Mahesh Babu fan
