Cast and Crew:
Sharwanand is undoubtedly the biggest asset to the movie. His timing of comedy, his acting, dialogue delivery, dance are excellent and admirable. He is one of the most under-rated actors of Tollywood. Lavanya Tripathi looked fantastic as usual. Her character in the movie is somewhat different from the roles she played in other films. Aksha Pardasany who did an extended cameo in the movie looked beautiful. Though her screen time is a little less when compared to the leads, her character is sweet and cute. Jaya Prakash Narayan and Brahmaji’s characters are very hilarious. After a long time, Asish Vidyarthi is seen onscreen and did a good job.
Direction by Chandra Mohan is excellent. He executed this action comedy romantic entertainer very well. Music by Radhan has been receiving a good response even before the release. Songs apted the movie flow, and the background score is also superb which made the movie even more enjoyable. Production values by Bhogavalli Baapineedu under Sri Venkateswara Cine Chitra company are great. Cinematography by Karthik Ghattamaneni is worth mentioning. Editor Madhu also supported the movie very well. However, director Chandra Mohan who marked his debut with this film proved that this is his movie with his rookie mistakes.
- Fresh story
- Second half
- Draggy story
Sharwanand is being very choosy about his scripts but never did less than the expectations. The actor proved his talent by scoring super hits by releasing his movies simultaneously with big films. Despite having a routine story, the comedy in the story is fresh and fun. Some scenes are entertaining. The climax is fun. Lavanya Tripathi attracts the audience with her sweet acting.
Radha is an enjoyable ride and is fun to watch for the first time. Audience from the categories will like this film. (2.5/5)
