Total waste of Money & Talents
11 May 2001 | by See all my reviews

It is a Indianized version of the Hollywood block buster "Ghost and the Drakness". The film looked very stale. A better graphic job, and a tighter screenplay might have helped the film. Very bad job by the Director. One would wonder how the same director gave a hit like Choodaalani Vundi?

Chiru(Chiranjeevi) hero of the film looked very old and gained lot of weight. Its a total waste of time, money, talent.........
