Plus Points in this movie

The production values of the film are pretty good as the film looks quite rich in every frame. Rajasekhar does a sincere job in his role of a cop. Credit should go to Prasanth varma for showcasing him in a superb manner.Adah Sharma is neat in her role but Nanditha Swetha got a meaty role and she was quite Impressive in the second half. The last fifteen minutes of the film are quite engaging and the manner in which the twists are revealed during this time looks very good.

Rahul Ramakrishna was okay as the journalist who supports Rajasekhar but he needs to get rid of his weird hairdo and beard. Poojita Ponnada was effective even though she was seen in just a few scenes.Siddhu Jonnalagadda gets a good and crucial role and he did well. Ashutosh Rana looked effective in his role of the main villain.

Minus Points in this movie

One of the biggest drawbacks of the film is the pace and lenght of the film. It is close to 2 hours 20 minutes which looks like three hours because of the dull narration in the first half.The first half goes for a toss as the story takes for ever to reveal the actual twist. Rajasekhar and his flashback with Adah Sharma looks outdated and has only been used to make the film commercial. This could have been easily edited out and made things better for the audience.

In order to make the audience get confused, the director enters so many characters which have good purpose. But sadly, they are not unleashed properly in the narrative which keeps deviating the film at many intervals.
