Shankar Narayana is an honest politician who meets with a near-fatal accident. Some years later, Shankar's son Ajay has grown up to become a police officer. Ajay's mission to bring down the trade of drugs and weapons, takes him to Istanbul. It's while there that he first meets fashion student Prashanthi. Ajay is smitten with her. Back in India, Shankar finally awakes from a long coma. Ajay creates an elaborate home-life charade to shield his still-fragile father from any stress or shock. While out on the streets, it is time to hunt down Don Nayak and his criminal associates who tried to kill his father all those years ago. Written by L. Hamre

User Reviews

Full Entertainer
23 September 2011 | by ashowk009See all my reviews

Mahesh Babu role and his action is highlight in the film. He excelled both in action and emotional scenes. His comedy timing is perfect and over shadowed big comedians in the movie. The variation he showed in body language between Police officer and MLA is commendable. Overall, it is an energetic performance by Mahesh Babu much to the delight of his fans.

Samanta has nothing to do much except play the role of Mahesh Babu love interest. She is pretty and looked glamorous in songs. Parvathi Melton item song is unimpressive.

Prakash Raj is at his usual best. This role is one among many roles he played. Sonu Sood as underworld don did justice to his selection. Kota, Sayaji Shindey and Supreeth performance is OK.

Real scene stealers are Brahmanandam in Padma Sri role and MS Narayana in wanna be hero Venu role. Their performance is highlight in the movie.

Nasser as boss to Mahesh Babu has less important role. Suman and Naga Babu restricted to couple of scenes in Police chiefs role. Vennela Kishore, Ravi Prakash and Manoj performed well as Mahesh colleagues. Tanikella Bharani, Chandra Mohan, Shiva Reddy, Dharmavarapu Subrahamanyam and many more filled the screen.
