It has been a while since Sumanth has not been to score a hit in his career but this time, he has come up with another rather interesting title. Yet again in a mass entertainer, let us see if Sumanth scored success in this or not.


D D (Sumanth) and Chinna (Trinethrudu) are childhood friends and they grow up to be recovery agents and goons.

They have a long ambition of setting up a Pulihora Centre and for this they need money. So they join the mafia don Giri (Tanikella) and he gets them to Das (Jayaprakash Reddy) another evil don. Meanwhile, a sequence of events happens and DD kidnaps Pragati (Krithi), daughter of Minister Prasad Reddy (Ahuti Prasad).

However, Pragathi is happy she got kidnapped but there is a small twist which she and DD realize at a later stage. What is that twist and how DD comes out of it forms the rest of the story? Why Pragathi is happy for kidnap? That forms rest of the story.


Sumanth has come up with a mild performance and though his is a mass role, he still has a classy look which is a contradiction. He lacked in those energies that a mass hero should possess. Somehow he proved once again that his body language suits only for class roles but not mass ones.

Krithi looked gorgeous and at ease in front of the camera, she has traces of Jayaprada in few shots. Trinetrudu provided few lighter moments, Tanikella was effective, Jayaprakash Reddy was regular, Ahuti Prasad had a brief presence. Chandramohan was alright, Babloo was just average, the others did not have much to contribute.

The dialogues were regular, script was written but there was no depth, screenplay was adequate, both background score and two songs were credible and worth listening, cinematography is above average, and the art and costume department did a good job. Keeping the artistic bent and creativity in titles and picturing songs, entire movie proves to be heavy for audiences with weak narration.


The film takes off on a rather mild note and it must be said that the chemistry was missing on the screen. The technical values are very high but the content and the narration needed lot of energy. Sumanth needs to focus more on doing classy and urban roles since his attempts to get into the mass category are not up to satisfaction.

While the first half goes about in a regular fashion, there are few sequences in the second half that keeps the audience busy but yet again, the feeling was missing on the screen. The film is more for the multiplex audience though it has a mass backdrop and the makers should have worked more on the comedy. The trigger of romance is something that is missing a great deal although Harshavardhan could attempt well. The film might pass off as a technically well made and some fairly decent songs but as such success would be difficult for this.
