Krishna: Balayya is looking extra glamorous in this film.
His wardrobe is full of variety. And he did full justice to
the role by acting exceptionally well. His dances are very
good in three songs.
Zhaveri: She was given a mean role in this film and she
acted well though she did not have enough footage.
Shetty: She too is full of glamour. Her character has

not exploit the Balayya's image as the best dialogue-teller

With a weak villain in the form of Prakash Raj, this director
could not exploit the mass angle of the film. The dealing
of flashback episode is sensitive. Since, the film does not
have any revenge plot and killings, it might not work well
with the masses. We got to wait for a week to know how 'Bhalevadivi
