on Jr.NTRs' shoulders
16 May 2008 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Mehar Ramesh probably learnt a few tricks of the trade in his earlier years and he uses them quite efficiently in making this movie but he misses a couple of things in the process – the story and the screenplay.

In the flash back, Potha Raju (PR-Prakash Raj) and Seshu (Ashish Vidyarthi) kill and rob their employer and decide to live-off the money elsewhere. PR's wife along with their infant son refuses to go with him.

Cut to the present, Seshu oversees the PR empire's local operations (promoting counterfeit currency for one), while PR has a similar flourishing business in Hong Kong. In one such shady deals – a local lad Kranthi ( a la Kantri)(Jr.NTR) intervenes and impresses Seshu by saving them a massive amount of counterfeit money.

Kranthi becomes their team member and his swift rise within a short span of time impresses the boss PR too. But when the 'company' does not come to his rescue, in his time of need to rescue one of his mates at the orphanage he decides to start his own venture competing with PR enterprise. His first deal or contract is to bump PR off for a good sum (genuine, of course). An enraged PR personally comes down to India to finish off Kantri only to realize that Kranthi is his own son, which is quite a twist for the first half of the movie.

In the second half, PR has nothing much to do except swooning whenever he is a little tense, while Seshu is busy trying to get his daughter (Tanisha) married to Kantri who is already committed to Varalakshmi (Hansika). As you wonder what is making you watch the movie till its end, the director comes with a saving grace in the form of a little twist in the end too.

Aswini dutt who has built up a very good reputation for his banner should in future be more careful in choosing the product rather than the mere packaging. Mani Sharma as usual has come up with some superb musical treats.

Except for Jr.NTR with his new impressive make over and his exceptional performances in song, dance & fight sequences, this movie can be very strongly recommended for only die-hard Jr.NTR fans.
