J K Bharavi who has written for Nagarjuna’s mythological/Devotional hits once again shown his talent with excellent dialogues.The screenplay and direction are the plus points for the movie since veteran K Raghavendra Rao handled them both. Nagarjuna is very impressive as a devotee of Lord Venkateswara, The role of Lord Venkateswara was perfectly enacted by Saurabh Raj Jain.All others have done well their given roles.S Gopal Reddy handled well the camera. 4 songs are melodious tuned by M M Keeravani who has given melodious Back ground music. Crispy editing done by K.Vikram Kumar.
This can be rated as an above average movie which is presented well on the celluloid by Nagarjuna and K.Raghavendra Rao. Last 30 minutes of the movie is very interesting with excellent climax.
This is a once see movie which is in par with Nagarjuna’s previous movies ‘Annamayya’ and ‘Sri Ramadasu’.
