Two pairs of twins - Krishna & Ramu and Radha & Seeta - get separated when they were kids. Krishna (Srihari) and Radha (Ramya Krishna) grow up in a tiny village as petty thieves. Ramu (Srihari) becomes a big cop. Seeta (Ramya Krishna) is the heiress of a huge fortune.

There is a don called Muni Raju (Vijaya Chandar) who uses Guravayya (Kota Srinivasa Rao) to kill the parents of these twins and separate them. The story of the film is about how the male twins take revenge on the bad guys when they grow up.

Artists Performance

Sri Hari has shown some variations in two contrasting characters of a thief and a cop. His thief character suited him well because of the mass appeal he possesses. Ramya Krishna too did well in donning those two characters. Vijaya Chandar is good as the crooked villain with a soft appearance and with criminal thinking. Thalaivasan Vijay is OK. Kota Srinivasa Rao did another role of a comedy villain.

Technical Departments:

Story: Story of the film is a clichéd one which we used to see in films that were made decades ago. But, it still holds the viewers attention, if presented well.

Screenplay - direction: Ravi Raja Pinisetty seems to be living in the past. His style of taking is quite old-fashioned. Screenplay of the film is very predictable. Picturization of songs is bland. Comedy in this film does not tickle your funny bones.

Other departments: Music by Rupali is not up to the mark. She copied tunes from Hindi films and English songs. She lifted Kylie Minogue's tune 'Can't get you out of my head' as it is. Dialogues by Manthri are mediocre. Photography by Ram is average. Editing by Gowtam Raju is OK. Visual effects in this film are bad (especially the fx done for the diamond-robbery episode).

Analysis: First half of the film is mediocre. Second half is bad. The climax is unnecessarily dragged with excessive fight sequences. This film has got an old-fashioned story narrated in a clichéd style. The plus point of the film is Srihari. Minus points are the direction, screenplay and music. We have to wait and see how it performs in B and C centers.
