(Mukesh Rushi) is a powerful mafia leader in Hyderabad.
His latest mission is to grab a colony. Bose (Raja Sekhar)
visits his brother (Chandrasekhar) who stays in the
same colony that Gangireddy has his sights on. When
the colony dwellers decide to give up everything and
surrender to Gangireddy, Bose makes a difference by
uniting them and fight for the cause. In the process,
Gangireddy kills Bose's brother and father. The rest
of the story is all about how Bose takes revenge on
Sekhar: Raja Sekhar performed well as an angry young
man. The fire in Raja Sekhar which we have seen in the
days of 'Ankusam' is still in tact. However, the weak
point is that the situations in the movie do not have
the kind of strength to exploit the superb histrionics
of Raja Sekhar. Thanks to the efforts of make up man,
costumer and cinematographer, Raja Sekhar looked pretty
young in this film.
Anjala Zhaveri is pretty
impressive both in looks and histrionics departments.
Mukesh Rushi is adequate.
Satyanarayana is good as
father of hero. Sunil provided
some mass comedy in a separate comedy track. Chandra
Mohan, Chalapati Rao, Kondavalasa, Omkar and
Krishna Bhagawan are adequate.
Story of the film is heavily inspired by the Raj Kumar
Santoshi's Bollywood blockbuster 'Ghatak' (1996). This
story is pretty much a stereotype. A couple of scenes
in this film are copied from 'Enter The New Dragon'
- direction: Muthyala Subbayya - known for his grip
over sentimental films - directed an action-oriented
film this time round. While he is good at emotional
scenes he failed in handling the action episodes and
the scenes leading to fights. Screenplay of the film
is mediocre. Director seems to have got confused about
how to narrate the story in the second half.
Departments: Music and background score by Ramana
Gogula is average. Photography by S K Bhupati is good.
Dialogues by Posani Krishna Murali are apt. The dialogues
written for Satyanarayana's character prior to his death
are good (especially 'yuddamlo geliste raaju avutadu,
manasuni gelichinappudu mahatmudu avutadu'). Editing
is OK. Production values by Andal Arts banner are good.
Analysis: First half of the film
is passable. Second half is a let down. The story in
second half meanders aimlessly. The plus point of the
film is hero Raja Sekhar. Minus points is inept handling
by Muthyala Subbayya for an action film. This film might
have takers in B and C centers. The chances of this
film making it good in A centers are bleak.
