Analysis:

Director Teja Marni efficiently did justice to the Malayalam inspiration Nayattu. He not only introduced subtle changes to the backdrop and second-half emotions but also expertly held the audience’s attention with a riveting screenplay and deft direction. 

The first half stands out for its rapid pace and potency, with a compelling interval sequence. While the emotional depth intensifies in the second half, occasionally slowing the narrative, Teja Marni compensates with twists and turns. His use of powerful dialogues, aimed at voters, politicians, and cops, captivates the audience’s attention.

Jagadish Cheekati’s cinematography skillfully captures the scenic beauty of Srikakulam, contributing to the film’s visual splendor. Karthika Srinivas’ editing is nearly flawless, maintaining the film’s pace with precision. The background music, with its powerful and resonant beats, elevates each scene, adding another layer to the cinematic experience. The production values are commendable, reflecting a commitment to quality in every aspect of the film’s creation. 

Rating: 3.25/5

Bottom-line: Engrossing & Thought Provoking Thriller
