The movie opens with Ramya Krishna & Liger landing in Mumbai to pursue their dream. Liger is focused and dedicated to becoming an MMA champion until Tanya enters his life. She turns his life upside down, did he able to recover? Did he pursue his dream? follows the rest of the story.


First half is passable with Vijay's performance working out well and few scenes evokes laughter. The fights were decent but the romance track between the lead pair is cringe. 

The first half is all about him becoming a National MMA champion, so one expects to see the emotional side in at least one game, but the director finished the whole tournament in a single song which dilutes the intensity of the hero's goal.

In the second half director decides to change his lead role's goal, to become an International Champion, but the journey is depicted with Cringe and nonsensical writing. At no moment we can connect with the proceedings as the movie has no impact.


This movie is tiring and punishing. The only positive is Vijay Devarakonda, he is dynamic and entertaining.


Bad writing

Pathetic execution

Zero emotional impact


Ananya's character as Tanya is forgettable. Tyson will regret playing this role for the rest of his life.

Final Word: It looked like this movie is made to show young aspiring filmmakers learn how to not direct a movie.
