Why are the rowdies searching him? What is his past? Is he a gangster? To know the answers watch the film in theaters.

Star Performance

Santhosh and Mayuri have performed well. Sadhu Kokila tries to make the people laugh.


Although the script is not new, the screenplay by Prabhu is excellent. The title should be apt to the script. But, the script deviates from Kariya and deals some unnecessary things, often. Comedy is forcefully inserted and it didn’t suit the context.

What’s There?

  • Performance by the stars is good
  • Screenplay is neat than the script
  • Cinematography by Srinivas is impressive and the songs are also good
  • Srikanth Gowda should be appreciated for his editing

What’s Not There?

  • Adult comedy doesn’t make sense for this script
  • Important thing in the story  is deviated  by unnecessary tracks


If you are an action maniac, then this film might attract you. It could be watched once for Santhosh and Mayuri’s performances.
