Synopsis : A top film star, a well-known politician and the captain of the Indian cricket team are targeted and killed, one by one, in a well-planned manner. Why?

Movie Review : Nanaji (Pradeep Rawat) cannot get a party ticket to contest the elections but with the support of a students' leader, demonstrates his strength to the party and gets a nomination. He goes on to win the election but does not hesitate to dump his ardent supporter when he needs his help.

Pedda Babu (Ashish Vidyarthi) is a celebrity hero who is also trying to push his son into filmdom to carry on his legacy. In public, he declares that it is only his fans who have made him what he is. But when his biggest fan is desperate for monetary help, he despises him. Similarly, there is the Indian cricket captain Nizamuddin who is investigated by the CBI for fixing a match between India and Pakistan and losing the match to gain Rs 20 crore illegally, much to the disappointment of fans.

The movie well made, and story well told, is about politicians, film stars and cricketers taking their fans and supporters for granted and using them for their own ends. The idea is to tell that them that they should not indulge in hero worship of any kind. And this is brought out in a convincing manner, with an element of drama that a film needs. Vexed as they are with the people they adore, three friends decide to eliminate the heroes they so truly worship and want to emulate.

Particularly outstanding is the character Pedda Babu, the superstar, who is trying to promote his son in a big way. And to achieve this end, they even mastermind the deaths of some fans, just so that it gives people an impression that they are demi-gods and fans are willing to go to the extent of even taking a risk with their lives to show their adoration for them.

Though an announcement at the beginning of the movie does mention that none of the characters resemble anyone dead or alive, putting two and two together is not a difficult thing for the audience to understand which star the character resembles in speech and style.

Pedda Babu resembles Chiranjeevi, and Pedda Babu's son Chinna Babu reminds one of Ram Charan Tej. There are many other similarities too. Debutant director Ohmkkar has reason to celebrate as his movie does hit the nail on the head. With Diwakaran wielding the camera, the film is also a visual treat. Joshua Sridha's music has the desired effect. Brahmanandam's comedy as Pappu is enjoyable, what with him taking a dig at Omkar himself who produces the Aata show on a television channel, and choreographer Sundaram master who is a judge on the show. Havish who plays the lead character Nivas is convincing. This movie will be an eye-opener for all fans who are advised against indulging in hero worship.
