Star Cast

Upendra, Arthi Chabria, Rangayana Raghu, Doddanna, Ramesh

This action packed love story that released on the 41st birthday of superstar Upendra is lavishly shot remake of the Telugu hit Krishna.

The story is about a young unemployed software engineer Rajani (Upendra) falling for a beautiful girl Sandhya (Aarthi Chabria). A group of baddies headed by Jakka (Mukul Dev) and his gang members want to take revenge on Sandhya?s rich brother. Rajani realises that Sandhya's life is in danger and assures that he will save her from the machinations of the baddies. How he goes about fighting them and wins his girl forms the rest of the predictable story.

Upendra is in good form and his dialogues, action and dance are a sumptuous feast for his fans. Arthi is outstanding and her body language, costumes and grace are major pluses. Rangayana Raghu tickles the funny bones in abundance. This is rather a different role for him from his regular ones. Ramesh Bhat, Sadhu Kokila, Bullet Prakash, Doddanna have given admirable support. Chitra Shenoy and Thulasi Shivamani are adequate.

Thirboki Kannu Nandhu?.song sung by KK lives long as a super hit song. Hamsalekha has given two more lovely tunes. Cinematography by Janardhan is spectacular to the eyes.

Verdict ? Above Average
