Duration: 2 hours 37 minutes
The story is about the dilemma of a boy who falls in love with a girl and is caught between two rowdies who want to take revenge on each other, one of whom is his father. The girl too is caught in their ego clash.
Director Anilkumar could have done a better job of the story by cutting unnecessary and boring sequences. Even some of the songs look forced which drags the movie to 157 minutes. Though the movie has rich and colourful sets, and music (thanks to Arjun Janya) with some excellent tunes, the director struggles to narrate the story in a simple way. Many times the sequences are not linked properly. In his handling of romantic sequences, the hero occupies more screen space than the heroine.
The entire story revolves around hero Prem (Sumanth) who falls in love with Preethi (Radhika Pandit). As they want to see their romance end on a happy note, the story takes a turn for worse with Jayasimha (Sharath Lohithashwa), father of Prem, asking his son to forget Preethi as his rival Devaraj (Ravishankar) plans to kill them in revenge. This is followed by kidnaps and fights between the rival groups. But Prem handles the situation intelligently. How?
Sumanth looks more matured and good in dialogue delivery and expression than his earlier movie Aata. Radhika Pandit wins your heart with her expressions. Sharath Lohithashwa and Ravishankar are the best choice for their roles. Cinematography by Sudhakar S Raj is pleasing to your eyes.
