the good, the bad and the ugly
Mahesh (Srikanth) is a sincere and honest police officer. He loses his kids and his wife gets paralyzed as few politicians who don’t like his sincerity harm his family. Mahesh changes his appearance and name to join the gang to politicians to become one. The rest of the story is all about how he makes people realize that there is some fault in the system.

the good, the bad and the ugly

1. Srikanth: Srikanth gave out his career best performance in Operation Duryodhana. Generally heroes do not get an opportunity to play these kinds of roles in Telugu films. He has shown nice variations in these two characters.
2. Political satires: The scenes involving political satires in the film are really good.
3. First half of the film

the good, the bad and the ugly

1. The last 45 minutes of the film.
2. Too much of simplifying the political and police system for screenplay convenience. The film which exposes the political, police and voting system does not bother to follow the logic.

the good, the bad and the ugly

1. The entire police in AP resigning on the behest of a police officer.
2.. People believing the politician promise of getting sea port to Hyderabad

the good, the bad and the ugly
Here are a few of good scenes in the film:

1. The scene in which Srikanth gives ferocious dialogues about Muslims.
2. The comedy scenes that talk about separate Telangana and Andhra.
3. Nagababu making inefficient cops dance to latest film tunes in women attire.
4. Scenes involving Paruchuri Gopala Krishna.

the good, the bad and the ugly
Posani Krishna Murali's work is far better compared to his earlier film Sravanamasam, but not good enough.
