Storyline

Shankar Narayana is an honest politician who meets with a near-fatal accident. Some years later, Shankar's son Ajay has grown up to become a police officer. Ajay's mission to bring down the trade of drugs and weapons, takes him to Istanbul. It's while there that he first meets fashion student Prashanthi. Ajay is smitten with her. Back in India, Shankar finally awakes from a long coma. Ajay creates an elaborate home-life charade to shield his still-fragile father from any stress or shock. While out on the streets, it is time to hunt down Don Nayak and his criminal associates who tried to kill his father all those years ago. Written by L. Hamre

Watchable Once for the Entertainment
1 October 2011 | by See all my reviews

Strengths: Mahesh Babu, Prakash Raj and MS Narayana Comedy. Weakness: Artificial development of Scenes, Songs and Predictable/routine screenplay of Sreenu.

Mahesh did a spectacular job as always, but this is not his kind of movie for sure. It's more like Sreenu vytla's movie, however this time it appears to be more like an action oriented movie than a family entertainer. May be presence of Mahesh made the difference i guess. Still I feel the MAGIC is not there in the film to stand a winner. Dialogues are really good. The pace of the film and screenplay really don't give you a chance to think whether it is really possible what Hero did to save his Father. Film is different for Mahesh though not up to his standards.
