Ram (Shaam) and Lakshman A.K.A Lucky (Allu Arjun) are brothers whose sibling rivalry is something which would put cain and abel to shame and give them a massive inferiority complex. Ram does everything better and is a successful police officer and Lucky does nothing worthwhile and lives off his brother and parents.
Lucky falls in love with Spandana (Sruthi Hassan-at her best) a girl with a terminator hangover and has a very good control on all emotions. Lucky changes her and makes her a lady version of himself and at this point Ram puts a spoke in their love wheel.
Lucky bays for revenge and does something which causes him to cross paths with Siva Reddy (Ravi Kissen) a rowdy sheeter turned politician. A showdown lands Siva Reddy in a hospital and he vows revenge on Lucky.
Apart from the sibling rivalry and Sruthi Hassan's characterization, the movie has nothing new to offer, but the way the screenplay works its way around the minor nitty gritties is what makes the movie interesting.
Allu Arjun plays the same tried and tested role to perfection and his "DEVUDA!" is good and is used in the right situations. He is excellent in the climax sequences and during the interval bang sequence.
Sruthi Hassan as Spandana is a treat to watch in the first half an hour of the movie-she is amazing in the bank robbery sequence and also gives us a glimpse of her tapori side in the "cinema choopistha mama" song. Shaam does the same boring act for the umpteenth time, sad to see such a good actor being typecast.
Saloni is cute with the telangana accent and gives out a good performance especially in the running sequence with Allu Arjun. Ravi Kissen does the same thing which all tollywood villains have been doing, yell and yell and then drop down dead.
It is Brahamanandam as Kill Bill Pandey who actually steals the show-his scene with Siva Reddy is the best in the mo vie-especially the dig at Prabhas.
Music by Thaman is strangely bad for an Allu Arjun movie, apart from the cinema choopistha song-none of the songs are good on the ears. Direction by Surender Reddy is good, but I wish the screenplay could make up its mind whether it wanted the movie to be an action thriller or a light action comedy.
Watch the movie for the laughs-----just don't take the movie too seriously-just walk in and expect Allu Arjun doing an Allari Naresh and you will love the movie
