Synopsis: We only wish we can now use the machine (like Brahmi supposedly did), go back in time, and tell the team, "Kasta story and writing paina shraddha pettandi."

Movie Review: It's been three years since we all saw Sushanth on screen. Such a long gap would seem like something very good was coming up. But turns out instead of using his very improved ability to perform (no kidding! Even his dances are pretty cool) for a good story, the actor decided to go the cliched way and opted for a story which is as old as the rocks and a narration that is as time-worn as an old shoe.
We are treated with the same old story with a separated families, bava maradalu's romance, a revenge-seeking villain, the saviour hero, his family lineage, the stupid comedian, a dumb comedian, and yes, a funny comedian. Well, at this juncture, we'd like to say that many of us love the masala entertainers, the cliched stories and keep loving them despite the n number of times we've seen them on screen. But guess what, we need innovation in the name of entertainment because we've become tired of the same old wine in a new bottle.
The filmmaker uses the old ruse of the hero using a "bakra" to spice things up - Brahmanandam. Vennela Kishore has a dialogue in this film: "Nenu Srinu Vaitla cinema lo Brahmanandam lanti vadini. Ela aina vadukovachu". At least, something which translates to that. Well, the audiences have learnt over time that not just Vaitla but a time would come when every director would do the same, and ironically, this film's director Nageswara Reddy himself does it with the veteran comedian who plays Girija Rao (yet another interesting name for the role of a bakra). But guess what, unlike the rest of the film, his episode is one which actually evokes some genuine laughter, after a very long time.
It is here that we are introduced to a time machine - Aditya 469, which is one of the main characters in the film and helps the story move forward. We only wish we can now use the machine (like Brahmi supposedly did), go back in time, and tell the team, "Kasta story and writing paina shraddha pettandi."
This film is a classic example of another film cashing in on the names of celebs like Mahesh Babu and Rajamouli and of course everyone from ANR to Nagarjuna (lot of in-film branding for the family's studios too!). Naga Chaitanya's cameo is decent but it's Akhil who adds no value, and is placed at a very awkward slot in the story! Sonam Bajwa is pretty but hasn't got much to do. Murli Sharma, Anand, Firoz, Pudhvi, Posani and others do what is required of them, which doesn't really help the film.
But the scene we'll forever be left baffled by is towards the climax when Posani is singing "Ninnu Chusi Nannu Nene..." (don't ask why!). And out of nowhere, they zoom in on Posani's knees. Why!! In a classic Srinivas Reddy style, we want to ask, "Vidilo em undi ra sex appealuu?". Sigh.
