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

One Man Show Superstar Prince
25 September 2011 | by sreekanthgudlaSee all my reviews

Story: Shankar Narayana (Prakash Raj) an honest man with ideals who does a lot for the poor. His good deeds find enemies (Kota, Supreeth, Sayaji). Shankar's son Ajay (Mahesh Babu) grows up to be an honest and tough cop.

While the whole world thinks Shankar Narayana is dead, he is actually recovering in a hospital. Meanwhile, unaware of all this flashback Ajay sets on a mission to hunt Nayak (Sonu Sood), a dreaded mafia don. In this process, he comes across Prashanti (Samantha) and falls in love with her. Meanwhile, Shankar Narayana recovers but he is not supposed to go through any sort of stress.

For this, Ajay starts doing all sorts of things to keep him happy. The story takes a turn when Ajay discovers about the attack on his father and decides to take revenge. How does he do that? Whether he is successful or not forms the rest of the story.

Performance: Dookudu movie is One Man action----Mahesh Babu.Like Khaleja,Mahesh has given an another extraordinary acting which was not given in his previous movies.

Samantha was used only for songs and only in first half.Vennela Kishore was good,but did not used much.

The plus point of this movie is M.S.Naranyana and Bhramanandam.All seen M.S.Narayanana acting,but in this movie , he has given best mind blowing performance as per comedy when compared to his previous movies...

Choreography was good.Sreenu Vaitla didn't do much to take the movie.Ready,Dhee,King mixed all and grind-ed well and built-ed the concept as to suit Mahesh role.Nothing much new in the movie.

Conclusion : If you are a prince fans,definitely it will rock.

Comedy,timing,prince ,m.s.narayana & other co-stars acting brings plus point for family members..

My rating : 8.5/10
