Premiere Show review:
It is a rare phenomenon in Telugu film industry to show the final print’s premiere a week advance of the release. It shows the confidence the producer has on the product.
The latest theatrical trailer has generated tremendous buzz mainly due to the negative shade of Manoj in it. SS Rajamouli has personally called Manoj and congratulated him by saying it’s one of the best trailers he has seen in the recent times.
Performance: Manchu Manoj Babu is the show stealer. Manoj’s three different performance shades are extra ordinary. His maturity was great and there was tremendous improvement in his dialogue delivery and acting skills. Long legged hot Actress Deeksha Seth was used just for songs and got wasted again. Manchu Lakshmi Prasanna proved that she is good at acting again apart from being good anchor. Her character is good as Iyrendhri as she appeared earlier. Raghubabu and Abhinaya Sree funny performance is good. Sunil, Sai Kumar, Prabhu and other roles were justified up to the mark. It is said that no miscasting is appeared in the movie. Every character performed up to their best.
Technical: The movie has good technical values. Director Sekhar Raja’s debut was good with Manchu Manoj’s mark in this movie. His direction in action sequences are the main highlight of the movie. Music department is just OK. Slaim-Sulaiman background score during climax sequences are amazing. The strange experience during the climax should be felt.
Graphics are outstanding during climax. Audience will step out of the theaters appreciating the graphical works by the unit.
Highlights: Nandamuri Balakrishna’s appearance for 25 minutes in this movie was quite exciting. However, the entire story is about the Nata Simham Balakrishna. His appearance as the head of Royal family is great and his characterization and performance is extra-ordinary.
