Story

Radhakrishna (Sharwanand) decides to be the police. He does all the police duties before he becomes the police. He catches hard-hitting criminals and police DGP calls Ramakrishna and offers a police job. He then concentrates on training and takes his job seriously. But he gets posting where the offense rate is very low. He falls in love with Radha( Lavanya Tripathi). In the meantime, he gets transferred to Hyderabad. The home minister Sujatha (Ravi Kishan) with a desire to become the chief minister, commits a crime. What is that crime? How was Radhakrishna involved in the case? How did he punish Sujatha? And how about the love story between Radhakrishna and Radha? What about Rukmini(Aksha) who comes in between Radhakrishna and Radha ?… forms the plot.
Performances

Sharwanand has impressed with the comedy timing. He shares the novelty with the audience in the role of the police. Lavanya Tripathi is beautiful, She does not get the best role to play. Aksha is limited to just one song. Shakalakshan Shankar, Jayaprakash Reddy, Saptagiri’s comedy bring some laughs. Ravi Kishan has done a great deal of acting but the role doesn’t have much scope.

Technical

Technically the film is not good. Karthik’s cinematography is good. Rathan’s music is okay. Production values are good.

Analysis

The director’s kept Lord Krishna’s character in mind to design the hero’s role. But failed to develop the story in an interesting way. Since the hero plays the role of police, a small case responsibility has been given to him, otherwise no justification or the police character for the hero.

The first half revolves around the police training, some fun scenes, and after the posting, the romantic scenes between the lead pair. Jayaprakash Reddy, Saptagiri, Shakala Shankar and Sharwanad with their comedy timing have engaged the audience in the first half.

The second half turns disappointing for the audience who expects some kind of intense drama. The small storyline is dragged till the very end which made every scene predictable. Most importantly, the makers missed logics in some portions of the film. SI Sapagiri plays a drama that Home minister is is father, Nannaku Prematho spoof – not so interesting.

Strengths
+ Comedy in the first half
+ Hero’s characterization
Weaknesses
– Second half
– Climax

Verdict
A run-of-the-mill commercial entertainer
