Verdict:

There are no boring elements in the film and also no scope for the film to get dragged. Director Surya Teja has pushed the audiences into the story from the word go itself. There are multiple interesting elements in the story along with some twists. There is no enough clarity in some characters but then the director made sure to increase the pace in the film. The twist that comes during the pre climax is completely unpredictable and the makers have done a decent job to indulge the audiences completely into the story. The way the director dealt the story is impressive. On the whole, the film is highly impressive.
