Story: Rajappa is a scarce politician son who wants to be a powerful politician and makes sure that there are no elections in his constituency by inflicting fear among the people by committing heinous violence. Siddharth, a civil topper is a newly appointed collector for the district in which the same constituency (Macharla) exists and takes on Rajappa. Will he be able to defeat Rajappa or not is the main story?


Analysis: The movie starts with the establishment of the Villain character as a truly bad person and hero's introduction was also done powerfully but the dialogues and action sequence looked overboard for a young actor like Nithin.  It could have been dealt with a more entertaining touch rather than massy touch.

After that, the movie goes on a decent note for a while with the comedy of Vennela Kishore working out well in some scenes. The romance track between Nithin and Kriti Shetty was alright. But the sequence involving Nithin, Kriti, and Kid with item songs was in bad taste. Overall, the first half does not have any strong moments and it's utterly predictable. 

Towards the end of the first half, the movie takes a serious turn where the actual link between hero and villain starts with a high voltage action sequence and powerful dialogues at the interval bang.

In the second half director as expected tried to put the hero vs villain game. In the process he succeeded in making some scenes impactful like the changeover of Brahmaji. But apart from a few moments second half suffered because of the deep routed predictability in the proceedings. Initially, the director tried to show the gain of a hero by some street-smart ideas but again chooses the violent path at pre-climax. The idea of defeating the villain in the climax looked good but as said before there was no strong impact to feel the victory of the hero.

The audience never gets the desired emotion for all the problems or killings of the public of Macherla. Also, this kind of movie needs a star hero who can hold the responsibility of taking an entire movie on his shoulders.


Technical: Music by Mahathi Sagar was just ok. Only “Ra Reddy’s” song had some impact on the audience that too because of “Ranu Ranantune's” remix part. The background score was ok. Dialogues worked here and there. Camera work was standard.


Performances: Nithin looked good and delivered a few punch dialogues but other than that he couldn't do much. Samudrakhani played dual roles, but both are routine bloodthirsty kinds of baddies, he was not used properly.

Kriti Shetty was ok. Catherine Tresa didn't get any scope and she suddenly disappears in the second half. Rajendra Prasad, Murali Sharma, and Shubhalekha Sudhakar were fine. Vennela Kishore provided some comic relief while Brahmaji is getting typecasted nowadays.


What works for the movie:

Some comedy scenes

Interval episode

What didn't work for the movie:

Outdated script

Routine narration


Final Word: Director aimed to make a Commercial entertainer, but the beaten-to-death story and narration never allow the film to grow on the audience.
