Story

Plus Points in this movie

The way the institution of marriage is important in life has been showcased well throughout the film. Also, the family emotions that are showcased in the second half are good and add depth to the film.

Prakash Raj leads from the front and is superb in the role of a businessman who does not believe in emotions. Jayasudha brings depth to the proceedings with her emotional act. Raashi Khanna is improving with every film. She looks gorgeous and emotes quite well.

Yet another major asset of the film is the rich production values as every frame looks rich and traditional. The way the village and marriage rituals are showcased look good on screen. Last but not the least, Nithin starts off on a dull note in the film but covers it up nicely with his good performance in climax.

Minus Points in this movie

The basic conflict is not at all strong in the second half. The way Prakash Raj who is very practical in life changes into a good man by the end of the movie is not showcased well. There should have been more scenes to showcase the change in him. His role is not dealt well in the second half.

Also, the director gives a good emotional angle to Nanditha Swetha’s role but leaves her thread mid way in the pre climax. Major emotions look good at certain places but some unconvincing scenes do not continue the same feel.

There is no entertainment factor in the film and the younger generation who has a different mindset nowadays can feel the film way too preachy. Too many senior actors like Naresh and Amani have nothing much to do in the film. Too much time is taken to establish the love story and twist in the first half which becomes dull.
