This could have been a nice medical thriller, but the trivial treatment makes it fall way short of the finish line.

Yashwanth is a doctor and scientist, whose aim is to find an affordable cure for heart patients. What happens when he makes the breakthrough, but ends up meeting the pharmaceutical mafia?

Annaiah P's story, on paper, has all it takes to make for that winning thriller. Sadly, there's much lost in the translation from paper to film and he also ends up giving in a little too much to the demands of commercial cinema. With the Sandalwood audience accepting both the commercial and the alternate with equal measure, one wonders when makers will stop with unnecessary comedy tracks with double entendres and raunchy item numbers.

Had the makers kept to just the protagonists fight against the pharmaceutical and real estate mafia and concentrated on establishing a few more facts there in greater detail than giving screen time to these unnecessary elements, the viewers would have perhaps had a taut thriller to watch.

What stands out in the film are the performances. Kishore is top notch as the vengeful sincere doctor. Yagna and Ashwini have limited roles and fit their parts. Tilak, as the tough investigating officer, is convincing and stands out from his negative roles. Sharath Lohithashwa is menacing as always.

One only wishes there was better writing to suit these performances. This could have been a nice medical thriller, but the trivial treatment makes it fall way short of the finish line.

Some jokes were good but most weren't. Some songs weren't really necessary. Stunt director has forgotten physics. All good actors under bad direction!
