Aditya (NTR) joins a law college in Vizag as a student. That law college is notorious for it's unruly students headed by Satya (Rajeev Kanakala). Aditya has a halo of mystery surrounding him through out the first half where he is shown with a man of flashback. He makes the unruly students mend their ways. In the interval, we would come to know that Aditya is a criminal who faced the charges for murder and is serving his life term in central jail of Vizag. He attends the college with a special permission from the jail authorities.

<Begin Flashback>

Aditya is in Hyderabad along with his parents. He finishes his intermediate. Aditya wants to do engineering and his father wants him to do Law. There is a confrontation between them. Mean time, Aditya unintentionally murders a goon while saving a girl from getting raped. Aditya's father abandons him as his son and Aditya surrenders at a police station.

<End Flashback>

The rest of the film is how Aditya wins the heart of his father with the law degree he earned. You got to watch this film on the silver screen if you want to know how Aditya made it possible.



NTR: There is considerable amount of improvement in his performance compared to his first film 'Ninnu Choodalani'. But, his obesity and body language needs much to be desired. Though his has worked hard and tried to give his best shot, what lacks is the natural charm in his action and ease in his dances. His voice too needs some modulation.

Gajala: She acted as a glamour doll in this film and did justice by acting according to the scope her character provides.

Rajiv Kanakala: He is given a role of a comedy villain in this film, which were performed by the likes of Mohan Babu and Sri Hari in the past. This TV artist has done a fine job.

Kota Srinivasa Rao: Kota acted in a typical role in the film and his timing of dialogues and comedy is simply superb.

Technical Departments:

Story - Dialogues: Prithvi Raj has done good job in providing story that has got some 'stuff' in it. Dialogues too are appropriate in this film.

Screenplay: Screenplay given by K Raghavendra Rao is good. If you notice, all the characters in the film turn out to be have related to each other character in this film.

Direction: Its commendable effort by Raja Mouli, who has worked as assistant to K Raghavendra Rao in the past. You can see K Raghavendra Rao brand of direction in most of the scenes, especially, the picturization of songs. The mass action scenes in this film came out really well.

Music: Music by Keeravani is a definite asset to the film. All the songs are good and catchy. The highlight of all the songs is the last one 'Emetti Chesaade'.

Production: This film is done with rich production values. The entire film is rich and appealing to eyes.

Analysis: First half of the film is youth-oriented as it was shot in college. The second half is mass oriented. The second half gets more applause from the viewers. You can find most of the TV artists in this film (especially the Santhi Vanam male gang). Over all, it's a mass film with youth touch and has the potential to become a hit.
