Sai Ramani had done a very good job as a writer and director of this movie, as he had filled the plot with all commercial elements to make the audience entertained.

The elements like comedy, action, romance etc were mixed in the right proportions and the director had given his best when it comes to the action sequences as well. The dialogues were good and the punch dialogues were received with applause as well. Performance by Raghava Lawrence was cool and he was at his energetic best in this film. Once again he sizzled in action sequences and dance sequences. Sathyaraj was terrific with his screen presence and he had given a matured performance. Nikki Galrani, Ashuthosh Rana, Kovai Sarala, Manobala, Satheesh, Charandeep, Jayaprakash etc also done their part to perfection. This visuals were grand and the camera was cranked by Sarvesh Murari.
