Definitely a good attempt
2 February 2013 | by chaitu-srkSee all my reviews

A movie where Mahesh acting has become from amateurish to an excellent energetic performance.Thanks to director Teja for giving my favorite hero an excellent role.But the movie has few flaws and comedy was so vulgar.If at all comedy was good movie would have been much better.Sentiment was good.Mother and Father characters were well plotted.Rakshita was OK.Rest did their job as required.Direction is good.Concept is excellent.Movies like these should definitely be encouraged.Mahesh should definitely do such challenging roles in the future.He has done a real good job in the film.Barring few flaws the movie is a commendable attempt.
