Storyline

Irfan Khan (Pavan Malhotra) is a key mafia affiliate in Mumbai. Khan is on the wanted list of criminals in Hyderabad with a bounty of 50 lakhs. Aiming to migrate to Dubai so that he could remotely control the operations in Mumbai, Khan devised a plan of hijacking a plane from Hyderabad to Kathmandu. His plan consisted of getting four of his own men to hijack a domestic flight from Hyderabad to Kathmandu(destined for Mumbai) in which he is a passenger. The home minister is also in the flight, and the four men are to release all the passengers and concentrate on the Home minister. From Kathmandu, he planned to go to Dubai. For the hijack operation, he organised a group of four intelligent men who were in dire need for money and who do not have a criminal record. The audience is made to believe in the beginning that the four central characters are these four men, but in fact they kidnap Khan before the flight takes off, aiming to get the prize money. They hide Khan in a forest and call ... Written by eshwarkiran

Chandrasekhar Yeleti represents the new face of Telugu cinema. The creativity in the plot, the way the characters are handled and the outcome. You can never predict the next scene of the film, and in fact by the time the movie is over you are completely taken aback by the genius of the script.

I doubt even the film directors from the north can match Yeleti's brilliance. There is so less focus on the songs and dance part that it can be considered international in terms of the treatment carried to the film.

He probably is the only director who can close to direct a film closer to "Chinatown(1974)". It is the screenplay of such a convoluted script that holds you on till the end.

Congrats to him once again for directing such a wonderful film.
