: It's a reasonably well made revenge drama that's designed like-a-twist-a minute-heist film. It's just that the movie is perhaps about seven years too late. The production design indicates the movie is targeted to the B and C centers so the general aesthetics, we're afraid, just aren't up-market enough, though the movie does pack some smarts, err . . . "street-smarts!"
To start with there are very few pretty sights that the movie offers - there isn't even a heroine for glam relief. The intentions were right but the execution wasn't backed up by technical aptitude. So the end product leaves you with a "oh it could have been better feeling."
The movie begins with a kidnap scene and gradually reveals the real motives if the kidnappers. Sharath is the mastermind who comes up with an ingenious plan to avenge his beloved sister's brutal killing, after the police chose to turn a blind eye to his quest for justice. The filmmaker does a decent job of revealing the plan in bits, holding back just enough to keep you interested right up to the end.
The acting is decent, both Sivaji and Ajay do a good job, as does Posani, but it isn't an actor's movie though. The screenplay is racy and the narrative taut and packs in some genuine laughs as well. The climax looks a little too forced and the cinematography and the art work are below par. The background music, though good in parts isn't consistent enough, but the biggest problem is product placement.
: The movie is targeted to the single screens, so the sensibility is perhaps not so chic, despite a reasonably gripping plot.
