Crap movie with irritating performances
22 December 2019 | by love-abhi2715See all my reviews

This is a lousy movie with same kind of story which we have seen in 80-90s movies. Bad guy wants hero girlfriend when failed killed the gf, rest of the movie hero take revenge. Too many songs, irritating slow motion action scenes, boring dialogues, no chemistry between hero-heroine. Kichcha Sudeep is such a fine actor but totally wasted in this movie. I like Prabhu Deva as dancer but he should stop directing the movies, he has no idea what audience wants nowadays.
