Story: Rajappa is a scarce politician son who wants to be

a powerful politician and makes sure that there are no elections in his
constituency by inflicting fear among the people by committing heinous
violence. Siddharth, a civil topper is a newly appointed collector for the
district in which the same constituency (Macharla) exists and takes on Rajappa.
Will he be able to defeat Rajappa or not is the main story?

Analysis: The movie starts with the

establishment of the Villain character as a truly bad person and hero's
introduction was also done powerfully but the dialogues and action sequence
looked overboard for a young actor like Nithin.  It could have been dealt
with a more entertaining touch rather than massy touch.

After that, the movie goes on a decent note for a while with the comedy
of Vennela Kishore working out well in some scenes. The romance track between
Nithin and Kriti Shetty was alright. But the sequence involving Nithin, Kriti,
and Kid with item songs was in bad taste. Overall, the first half does not have
any strong moments and it's utterly predictable. 

Towards the end of the first half, the movie takes a serious turn where
the actual link between hero and villain starts with a high voltage action
sequence and powerful dialogues at the interval bang.

In the second half director as expected tried to put the hero vs villain
game. In the process he succeeded in making some scenes impactful like the changeover
of Brahmaji. But apart from a few moments second half suffered because of the
deep routed predictability in the proceedings. Initially, the director tried to
show the gain of a hero by some street-smart ideas but again chooses the
violent path at pre-climax. The idea of defeating the villain in the climax
looked good but as said before there was no strong impact to feel the victory
of the hero.

The audience never gets the desired emotion for all the problems or
killings of the public of Macherla. Also, this kind of movie needs a star hero
who can hold the responsibility of taking an entire movie on his shoulders.

Technical: Music by Mahathi Sagar was just ok.

Only “Ra Reddy’s” song had some impact on the audience that too because of “Ranu
Ranantune's” remix part. The background score was ok. Dialogues worked here and
there. Camera work was standard.

Performances: Nithin looked good and delivered a few

punch dialogues but other than that he couldn't do much. Samudrakhani played
dual roles, but both are routine bloodthirsty kinds of baddies, he was not used

Kriti Shetty was ok. Catherine Tresa didn't get any scope and she
suddenly disappears in the second half. Rajendra Prasad, Murali Sharma, and Shubhalekha
Sudhakar were fine. Vennela Kishore provided some comic relief while Brahmaji
is getting typecasted nowadays.

What works for the movie:

Some comedy scenes

Interval episode

What didn't work for the movie:

Outdated script

Routine narration

Final Word: Director aimed to make a Commercial entertainer, but the beaten-to-death

story and narration never allow the film to grow on the audience.
