Racha – Old Wine in ‘Costly’ Bottle!
Dammu – Old Wine in ‘Royal’ Bottle!
Ram Charan – Played the role of street-smart guy. He excels in dances and fights. Improves his dialogue delivery when compared to his previous films. Fails to emote well in emotional scenes
NTR – Played the heir of Royal dynasty. He comes up with just ordinary dance moves, but does a decent job in fights. Has the ability of outshining even 100 actors in a single frame with his flawless dialogue delivery. Outstanding performance in emotional scenes.
Racha Heroine – Tamanna’s glamour is an eye-feast and her acting is decent
Dammu Heroines – Both Trisha and Karthika fail to impress.
Dances – Lavish sets, the grace in Charan’s innovative steps, good costumes and the chenistry between Cherry & Tamanna makes them watchable
Dances – Nothing special
Fights – Tried something different with the Bamboo fight
Fights – Lacks the power and intensity to keep the audience on the edge of their seats
Comedy – Ali and Brahmi filled the slot to some extent
Music – Nothing fresh
Dialogues – Few of them are note worthy
Cinematography – Top Notch
Art Direction – Appealing
Editing – Mediocre in first half

Dialogues – The best ones in recent times and the credit goes to Ratnam.
Cinematography – Good in parts
Art Direction – Deserves an applause
Editing – Mediocre in second half
Wrong Casting – Karthika is a completely misfit
