An outdated tale, the story is about Surya (Ravi Teja) who owns a gym and he has a close friend Sri (Sriram). Surya is in love with Meghna (Deeksha) and after some yes and no, she finally starts loving him. Meanwhile, Surya has few issues with Raja Goud (Pradeep), the bad guy. Sri goes to Saudi for job and there he falls in love with Vaishnavi (Bhavana). The twist arrives when Surya goes to Saudi to celebrate the birthday of Sriram. But Sriram is in trouble and he gets arrested by Saudi police for the murder of Vaishnavi. What happens from there forms the rest of the story.

Artist Performances:

Ravi Teja has done his best to infuse energy and momentum in the film. However, there were scenes where the wrinkles were seen. Deeksha is sexy but she definitely needs to take a course on acting. Rajendra Prasad was overboard. Sriram was okay. Bhavana was brief. Pradeep Rawath was good. Brahmanandam brought few smiles. Dharmavarapu, Krishnudu, Supreet, Jayaprakash Reddy were there to add some value to the script.

 Plus Points:

    1.  Ravi Teja's performance
    2.  Twist before interval

 Minus Points:

    1.    Poor screenplay
    2.   Weak direction
    3.    Lack of depth in key scenes
    4.    Songs
    5.    Second half

This was more like a crucial test to the likes of YVS, Gunasekhar and Ravi Teja given their string of flops. However, this film has taken their graph further down below. It must be said that for some reason the team is unable to come out of certain notions and are unable to identify the audience pulse. The film was suffering from negative talk prior to its release and lived upto the expectations. It is time for the team to go back to the storyboard and work on the fundamentals rightly before they decide to venture into another project. At the box office, the film will find it very hard to survive.

Verdict: Will burn to ashes..
