What is the film about?
It’s about politics and media.
Sounds very grim can it be watched in theater?
While there are some crude scenes this one surely deserves a theatrical watch. There is a fresh approach to the entire film and the comedy too is very well integrated into the narrative.
How is the entertainment quotient?
As said above if one leaves aside the politics angle of the first half the rest of the film in the first half is filled with entertainment. Especially the character of Saru played by Piya Bajpai won’t make you feel bored at all. The second half works well as a thriller which for sure the Telugu audience hasn’t seen in a while which would make it entertaining too.
Any, Sambar paityam?
Lots of it, actually.
How the songs are since the music is by Harris Jayaraj?
The songs are typical to his style but two of them are just feat to eyes. The locales are stunning. Cinematography of those songs is fantastic.
Are there any action sequences?
Yes there are action sequences but most of them are handled realistically. The action in the climax sequence deserves a special mention. If you end up liking the film you would be forced to watch the film again just for that climax alone.
How is the acting?
The film has consistently good acting from everyone. Jeeva does well as photo journalist. His dances are ok but he is very good in action scenes. karthika does well but her character lacks the spark that would make one like it. Piya Bajpai playing the friend of Jeeva has that spark missing in Karthika and she steals the show from her. Ajmal is the surprise package. His act improves as the film goes along and he comes into his own in the second half of the film. Kota Sreenivas Rao and Prakash Raj do small roles.
