A near cult classic movie
12 December 2011 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

Guys, Watched movie today in Sydney... Spell bound.. What an art work.. Excellent taking... Completely different way of narrating story.. good screenplay .. would have been racy in some scenes but thats OK.. And of course Superb performance by Pawan Kalyan... Excelled in all departments .. Settled comedy , Emotional scenes , Action sequences and especially Dance... Paparayudu and Title tracks will be an eye feast... See any al pachino's movies or Cult classic Hollywood movies .. you will respect panja...

I have appreciate Vishnu's taking and Pawan's brave decision in accepting this kind of script... This is not a regular formula based movie ... You can take songs picturization as best example to differentiate.. I don't think anyone in the Tollywood till now dared to have songs also just a part of scene or story.. there are no full songs except 2.. every song is well placed.. I know people are disappointed with title track after climax.. but actually that's a good Decision.. if the song is placed as intro then movie would have started on high pitch and that won't work... This movie is a good start for tollywood to produce efficient movies and just forget about bullshit regular commercial movies....

In One word Technical Brilliance.....
