Slow Pace
Repetitive Scenes


Director Raghupathi Reddy Gunda tried to show real life happenings in an interesting manner on the screen. While the is first half showed the trials and tribulations of a cab driver and his family. He generated interest on the second half with an interesting twist during the interval.

The second half is showed the struggle of cab driver’s wife to save her husband. Though the story is predictable, he made viewers interested with few twists and turns. He showed the politicians and police nexus in an interesting way with a good end taking everyone by surprise.

Mohan Chari’s Cinematography showed the locations in a appealing way giving the right feel to the viewers. The colour shades and angles are real and natural. Vardhan’s background music elevated the proceedings. Pawan Shekhar’s editing is ok. But he could’ve trimmed many scenes for better impact. Production values by Vijay Kumar Paindla are commendable.

Rating: 3/5

Bottom-line: Intriguing and Realistic Emotional Ride
