Performances : This is perhaps Bellamkonda Srinivas’s best performance throughout his career. He gives his best as a cop and does not over act at all. Expressions wise, he is very good and holds the film on his shoulders. The little girl who acted with him was superb.

Anupama Parameswaran looks gorgeous in those Sari avatars and plays a good supporting role in the film. Rajeev Kanakala proves what an actor he can turn out to be if used well. The lady who did the cop role was lethal. The guys who played the main villain was very good and scary.

Lack.of commercial elements
Lengthy runtime

Analysis : The film is a remake and many are aware of it clearly. So all those who have not seen the original, they will love the film completely. The suspense has been maintained quite well by the makers as they have not added any unnecessary elements.

Director Ramesh Varma nicely elevates the proceedings in a special.manner as he keeps the first half crisp and he makes the second half gripping. The way the villain is introduced into the set up is very good.

The best part is that the makers did not add boring Elena and keep the film crisp and do not deviate from the film which is good and makes the audience glued to the screen.

Rating: 3/5
