Cast Performance:

It is a delight to watch Prabhu Deva on big screen after these many years and he will sure entertain us with his style of body language and dance moves. The only drawback was the dubbing artist’s voice did not suit him well. Tamanna is outstanding and delivers one more beautiful performance. Sonu Sood has done justice to his role. Sapthagiri brings out the laughs in many scenes and justifies the genre. Others acted well as per their roles.

Technical aspects:

Background score is quite good whereas the songs do not sync in with the telugu nativity except Chal Maar song. Production values are the major asset for the movie. Manush Nandan’s Cinematography is quite good. Anthony’s editing could have better as the sync between audio and video seemed to have gaps in between. Director Vijay handled the story quite well and wrote an entertaining screenplay.
