Karthik (Sairam Shankar), Satya (Allari Naresh), Ali
(Abhishek), Lakshmi (Swathi) and Radhika Reddy (Shireen)
are teenage buddies. They set off to attend a party
to celebrate the engagement of Lakshmi. On the way they
collide with a police vehicle and speed away to the
party happening in the outskirts of the city. They then
enter forest to avoid the chase of cops. There they
tumble upon a ghastly incident where a politician taking
the live of a toddler as an offer of Narabali to the
Goddess. Ali shoots the entire episode with his video
camera. The goons of politician start chasing these
teenagers now. The rest of the story is all about how
these people emerge victorious by exposing politician
and corrupt cop.
Naresh is good. Sairam
Shankar improved compared to his first film.
Though a couple of punch dialogues by him are effective,
he needs to work on his diction and dialogue delivery.
Abhi got a sympathetic
role and he is pretty good. Colors Swati
is cute. Shireen is adequate. Siva
Prasad suited the role of politician well. Satya
Prakash is neat as cop. Shafi
is impressive. Ahuti Prasad
is good in his get-up. Brahmanandam's
comedy is run-of-the-mill.
of the film is wafer-thin. The basic storyline of this
film has close resemblance to Ram Gopal Varma's Anaganaga
Oka Roju. The difference between these two films
is that eloped couple gets chased by cops and goons
for audio tape they had in Anaganaga Oka Roju
and group of 5 friends are chased by cops and goons
for a video tape they possess in Danger. A guy
carrying camcorder all the time and shooting every minute
thing that happens around him appears bit similar to
a principle character in a Hollywood flick '15 Minutes'.
- direction: Direction of the film is good in parts.
Krishna Vamsi started the film by establishing the prime
characters in an impressive way. However screenplay
is not interesting. He canned a couple of chases in
second half in entertaining way. However, Krishna Vamsi's
mark in characterizations is missing.
Dialogues by Uttej are adequate with Hyderabad casual
lingo. Cinematography by Om Prasad is good. Chasing
sequences composed by fight master (especially Brahmanandam's
car chase in the second half) are impressive. Editing
of the film is not up to the mark. Production standards
of the film are neat.
The first half 20 minutes of the film where vital characters
get introduced is good. Then the movie slips into the
spell of boredom for the rest of the first half. Second
half of the film is better compared to the first half.
The excessive usage of cell phone technology in the
film marred the scope for drama. Since the story is
very much predictable, the element of thrill and suspense
is not there in the film. The narration of the film
is pretty slow. Krishna Vamsi must be appreciated for
attempting a different film, but it is of no use if
film does not make a mark for itself.
