In the debut film direction Raj Paththipati has shown great degree of skill and restrict very firmly to a mass entertainer. In fact first half of the film is Paisa Vasool as developments occur in good speed and second half is a bonus because of Dharmanna giving very good comedy track.
The new look at commercial format of storytelling is what the surprising factor. Laced well with dialogues, songs and performances, the debutant wins in giving a stiff competition in the box office.
Rummy (Vikas) is a clever person but his double standard gets bowled over on the arrival of Vandana (Sindhu Lokanath). He had to give up his corrupt practices. The time is not ripe for him to jump to opposite side. Rummy is killed after deep love with Vandana.
Now the ‘Athma’ story surface to take revenge and the fantasy past gets attention. The Mantrik power added in comedy actor Dharmanna character gets him special permission to identify ‘Athmas’. So the ‘Athma’ of Rammy urge Dharmanna to invite him to enter him so that he can take revenge.
On the other hand the deadly man Jayanna (Raghav Uday in first half and Bhajarangi Loki in second part) plus the fake Mayambara Swamy throws big challenge. How Vikas take revenge is the further interesting portion of the film.
This is a power packed cinema and good songs arrive at regular intervals, the dialogues such as sample, example etc are at right time.
Kaladoda Kalidasa….song is well captured and delivered too. Cinematography of Sugnan gives good visual treat.
Vikas has struggled hard and his dialogue delivery is convincing. Sindhu Lokanath is very apt and precise. Achyuth Kumar, Raghav Loki, Bharangi Loki, Suchidra Prasad, Seetha Kote and Babu Hiranaiah have given admirable support. Bhageera a dog Sidda has not much of ‘Chamatkaras’, the graphic work is quite OK.
This film is a safe bet in your entertainment list.
