Just an average and routine drama with a big star!!!!
7 June 2019 | by vinodkoka2012See all my reviews

Seriously, I don't think this movie got anything new worth watching from mahesh babu as we are seeing him since Srimanthudu, it was like just one character in different movies(like Sherlock solving different cases). As An actor mahesh did justice to the character but you cannot expect anything new from him in this movie but I felt mahesh babu was more into the character that at times somescenes done by him in this movie felt a bit dramatic and artificial. I was wondered by the reception and the promotions being done to this movie claiming blockbuster and trendsetting movie.I personally felt that our directors were not able to bring the best of this versatile actor... finally not a great movie not even a good movie. Can be watched in tv
