Osthi.....those who watched the film nasty!
14 December 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

The movie was not up to the mark. The promo they gave and they output the movie gave was totally irrelevant! Though it was a remake of the Hindi film Dabangg. STR did not perform to his best. Except for Santhanam's comedy and songs....the movie is not worth to be watched. After seeing so many awesome roles of surya vikram kamal ajith etc in police stories, simbhu's police role didn't give the exact feel of a typical police. Most scenes were expressionless. And also the movie was too long...after consistent hits like dhill dhool and gilli we expected more from Dharani. To say in short "Without Santhanam the film is nothing!".
