What else more does a Jr. NTR fan need more than this? A tale that doesn’t itch your brains or lets your cognizance sprouting up at points. Just a regular commercial Telugu cinema, where hero plays triple roles and you can easily make guesses of what’s gonna happen next? But irrespective of these predominant attributes, what keeps us engrossed for more than couple of hours is the tremendous performance and appearance of Jr. NTR.

The story revolves around triples (all roles played by Jr. NTR). They belonged to a stage play group, where Lava and Kusa are always lauded and appreciated. Whereas the elder one Jai is made fun of for stuttering and he is not given the same respect as other brothers. This turns him into a villainous nature. Years later, these brothers get to come across each other and rest is what happens to them.

Nothing as much to point down the brilliant flashpoints or the minuses out here. It’s an out and out commercial entertainer, which doesn’t strain you anywhere. A very neat and well written story that gets emblazoned with the spectacular screen presence of Jr NTR…

While Jai appears as a complete baddie throughout the show, his stunning performance by the end is really astounding. It creates an emotional punch among the fans. The roles of Lava as a soft-hearted chap and Kusa as a hilarious one make the characterizations stronger. In fact these roles very well differentiated with mannerisms and body languages make it more compelling. There are scenes, where these three roles are supposed to appear together and because of these earnest reasons, they are perfect. Nivetha Thomas has nothing special play here and Rashi Khanna is limited as well with the scope. Sai Kumar is really good.

A surprise from Devi Sri Prasad as he doesn’t use unwanted percussions and jarring sounds out there for BGM or songs.

The first half proceeds with a much rapid pace while post-intermission sequences slightly get slowed up. But from the point of penultimate sequence to the climax, the pace gains up. Especially the brotherhood love established through these three roles by climax is the biggest plus.
