Director Mohan Krishna Indraganti has ensured that the first half of the movie is packed with thrills by smartly executing the cat and mouse chase between the cop and the Killer. The efficient handling of the two main characters is the highlight of the movie, with their unique mannerism playing a vital role. Also, full marks to the director for extracting amazing performances from the lead stars, Nani and Sudheer Babu. Technically , the movie has been stylishly shot with some highly entertaining sequences like Nani scaring a stranger in different occasions with his wicked sense of humour and juicy encounters between the cop and killer .However, during the deeper investigation unravelling the mystery of the serial killer , plot becomes more predictable and the pace drops during this phase. In spite of twist in the climax, audience would have expected more explosive stuff . Background music is simply terrific especially when Vishnu is around
Sudheer Babu and Nani carry the entire movie on their shoulders delivering a knock out performance. Having worked really hard on his chiseld body, Sudheer Babu is a delight to watch with his expressions and body language . He is so perfect while providnig preliminary analysis at the crime scene with a lot of intensity. Nani shines with a wicked sense of humour, asking movie related questions to the chosen set of people just before the brutal murder. There are couple of interactions between strangers and the serial killer where an excellent act by Nani makes the sequence hugely entertaining. Nivetha Thomas is quite good as she manages to show her talent .Aditi Rao hydari adds to the Gamour quitient and the big list of strong supporting cast including Rohini, Naresh , Vennela Kishore are wasted as they don’t get much to showcase their talent
