Justice Lakshmi (Manchu Lakshmi Prasanna) is a strict judge who is uncorrupt. She takes a strong stand and gives a strong verdict to a criminal who then vows to make her pay for it. The villain and gang kill Lakshmi by hatching a sinister plan. How with even bigger sinister plans a revenge for the death is taken and who has taken it is the overall story of the film.
Manchu Lakshmi is the heart and soul of the movie. She puts everything she has as a performer into the film and it shows in every frame on screen, the ‘navarasas’ of acting are on display here. It would have helped her cause if she had toned them down a bit, though.
The rest of the cast comprising of Posani Krishna Murali, Hema, Hemanth, Kalakeya Prabhakar, Jeeva, etc are adequate.
Flashback and revenge
Gets slightly confusing towards the end
Gopala Krishna has a very predictable and routine story on hand. He tries to make it interesting with few twists and screenplay but they aren’t that neatly executed. It clearly looks like a hurried job, there are too many missing logics.
First half of the film has nothing happening apart from few comedy scenes till the interval point. Post intermission there are few engaging moments via a flashback of sorts but once that is over, we again get back to a predictable nothing. The climax, the way it has been executed leaves a lot to be desired.
Music by Sunil Kashyap is good. One sentiment song in the second half stands out. The cinematography is not that good and so is the editing. Dialogues are alright. Production values are okay.
Bottom-line: A Routine Fare
