A typical commercial treat, the story begins with a 30 acre land in a village near Warangal. This is eyed by two powerful locals Konda Reddy (Dev Gill) and Lala Goud (Pradeep Rawat). Incidentally, both happen to be sworn enemies and in between this, anyone who comes to buy the land will end up getting killed. Amidst this, the owner of the land goes to Hyderabad and sells it to one Ranga (Sunil) and doesn't give these details. With the hope of getting his sister’s marriage done and clearing all his loans, Ranga buys it and comes to the village. It is here he knows the truth. Few situations get him close to Konda Reddy. Ranga sees that he can come out of this safe through the help of Anitha (Isha), daughter of Lala Goud. However, his attempts to approach her make her fall in love with him and he falls in further trouble. What happens after that forms the rest of the story.
Artist Performances:

Sunil deserves the brownie points for not just his performance but his dance and fights. His six pack body is another highlight. Isha Chawla has got natural sex appeal written all over her and she brings some glamour. Dev Gill was used in the right way and he was good. Pradeep Rawath made his presence felt and was contained. Raghu Babu and Ali were there for comedy. Kota was brief. Pragathi, Sudha Rani, Satyam Rajesh, Arundhati Sudhakar were there to fill the gaps.
Plus Points:
    1.    Sunil
    2.    Entertainment quotient
    3.    Last twenty minutes
    4.    Cinematography
    5.    Screenplay
Minus Points:
    1.    Too much cinematic liberties
    2.    Immature comedy in few scenes

This is the second directorial venture of the director and it gathered a huge hype due to the buzz about Sunil's six pack avatar in it. True to the hype, both the director and Sunil didn't disappoint. There was good proportion of balance and the commercial elements are in abundance. The focus is more on keeping the film lively and provide entertainment value than some serious melodrama. At the box office, the film is sure to catch the attention of the  mass and commercial audience so success looks bright.

Verdict: Those who love commercial masala will love it!
