Will he succeed in making Autonagar from the goons structures the storyline
Naga Chaitanya – This is a challenging role for Naga Chaitanya who has done lover boy roles in his profession as such. He did well and carried the film upon his shoulders. However one gets an inclination that Chaitanya could wait for few more years before accepting mass leader characters. but the way Chaitanya goes about his character, and dialogue delivery is great. Naga Chaitanya has astonishing screen presence in this film.
Samantha – She got very limited role in this movie. she is only only for songs, cinematographer failed to capture her in a right way.
Jithendra – Jithendra(Chakravakam fame), makes his debut as a villain with the film. He is fine at first half however soon transforms into a cartoon with his over the top act.
Saikumar is given a underwritten role in the film where the vast majority of the characters have got great lines. He tries his best to captivate the audience but the character fails him.
Nandu – Young actor Nandu, delivered great performance as Chaitu’s friend. He has a meaty role, and does justice to his character.
Brammi and Venu Madhav got wasted and failed to deliver comedy.
Music by Anup Rubens is not his finest but two songs do register. Sadly picturization and placements of songs is bad. Background music is inconsistent in parts but just ok overall.
Editing could have been better. The film drags on and on at times especially in the second half. There are so many lengthy scenes in the film.
Cinematography is not bad. Art Department did a great job.
Dialogues of the film is pretty good. Deva Katta have penned some extra ordinary lines.
Screenplay of the film is just average. first half established good tempo for second half, but with the slow narration and unwanted scenes things went wrong in second half.
Direction – Deva Katta disappointed this time after the success of ‘Prasthanam’. He has shown more interest in showing richness in scenes and failed to picturise them in aninteresting way. writer in hime dominated the director and penned some good dailogues in the movie, few of them are not necessary for the movie.
What is Good?
– First Half
– Interval Scene
What is not Good?
– Second Half
– Slow Narration
– Songs and its placement
The film started well with high tempo in establishing the characters in first half and things went wrong in second half. On the whole this just another average flick from Naga Chaitanya.
