Storyline

The evil witch queen Irendri's reign of terror spreads across the teardrop-shaped land Sangarashtra. The strong are forced to join her army, the weak are sacrificed to her snake demon. Moksha, a young girl raised in a monastery untouched by the tyranny, has been gifted with healing powers. Irendri knows that the child's blood will grant her immortality, and sends her army to find her. Moksha's sworn protector is Yodha --a blind swordsman who dreams of his lost love, the beautiful gypsy girl Priya. Can they find a way to conquer Irendri and her dark forces? Written by L. Hamre

A Treat for eyes
5 February 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

The big guns "Disney" entered into Tollywood with this movie. The movie had a lot of hype from the day one, the whole cast and crew are responsible for such expectations like the actors Siddharth, Sruthi Hassan, Lakshmi Manchu and the veteran director's son's first movie in a fantasy cum epic adventure.

The first time I watched the trailer of the movie, I felt this is a must-watch one in 2011 films. Though I didn't have much expectations on this film as such, I was satisfied that it was a good movie.

One of the reasons the film wasn't appreciated by many is because the story slightly deviates from the main plot the film is supposed to move on, but overall it has all elements that a family could watch, though the comedy sector needed some refinement.

The roles were well chosen for especially Laksmi Manchu as Irendri. Sruthi Hassan was extremely beautiful and glamorous in those rich costumes, Siddharth was OK, Harshitha was good as Moksha

The debacle of the movie is the music department(which i don't want to talk about at all), the story is average, but will be a nice entertainer to watch along with your family. Since, it is a Disney production, don't expect it to be in Hollywood levels, the good point of the director is he kept in mind about those aspects that B or C class audience also enjoy it.

Overall I give : 8/10.
