A confusing tale, the story begins with Suhani (priyamani) who is very sensitive and low in confidence. Everything and everyone trouble her and her frustration is bottled up. One day, she sees an accident and saves Krishna Prasad (tanikella) from that. He recovers and when Suhani sees his revolver, he grants her a favor. He gives her the revolver and tells her to vent out her frustration on anyone she hates the most and he will take care of it. Suhani sets out with the motive of killing her close friend Anita (keerthi) and that doesn't work. Then she decides to go and kill her boyfriend Sandeep (jagapathi) but even that does not work. Finally, she manages to gather many details and decides to kill another person, who is that person and why she wants to kill him forms the rest of the story.

The director has come up with a mindless storyline and both his presentation and narrative were weak. The dialogues were apt, the script was pathetic and the screenplay was alright. Background score was neat and songs were good. Cinematography was terrible. Makeup was messy. Editing was good. Costumes were okay and art department was standard. Jagapathi Babu did his bit as required but nothing special from his performance because his character was etched very weakly. Priyamani was a package of skin show and oozed out her curves to the maximum, Keerthi Chawla must work on her body to get more offers. This was a wrong choice for her when it came to performance. Kota was standard, Tanikella was good, Pragathi was okay, Munna Venu was brief. The others didn't have much to say.

Basically, the film maker had no clue as to what he had to convey to the audience. It takes off as a comedy then turns into a thriller, then mixes into melodrama and jumbles with several flashbacks. While the first half conveyed a different feel, the second half conveyed something else. Overall, except for the songs and Priyamani's visual feast, there is absolutely nothing worth talking about. At the box office, this is bound to hit the dust despite the presence of the branded lead pair.

CineHerald Verdict : Forget it!!
