The story of the film is quite simple and is based on the assassination of a powerful businessman named Guru Raj(Prakash Raj). This incident upsets Guru Raj's elder son Kali(Jagapathi Babu) and he decides to takes revenge on his father's killers. But twist in the tale arises when he too gets killed like his father. Left with no choice, Guru Raj's third son, Radha(Manoj) takes up things in his hands and decides an counter attack. Rest of the story is as to how Radha manages to take his revenge and where does Guru Raj's second son(Vadde Naveen) feature in this entire set up.
Prakash Raj has done fantastic job and his performance is remarkable. Actor Manchu Vishnu performed well but did not get much screen space to prove his performance skill in the first half of the movie. The performance of Jagapathi Babu is superb and his body languages and way of dialogues delivery grabbed several eyeballs. His facial expression in sentimental scenes as well as gangster is fantastic. RGV became successful to utilize the talent of cast but because of weak story line, the movie did not leave any good impact on the audiences. The presence of actress Surabhi is negligible. Poonam Kaur attracted the audiences by his glamour look and thigh show. Abhimanyu Singh and others performed well.
As said earlier, camera work is top notch as the crime backdrop has been showcased well. Even though the film is under 2 hours, a number of scenes could have been easily edited. Screenplay is yet another disaster as it confuses the audience with too many characters entering the scene. The music of the movie which is composed by Ravi Shankar is not up to mark and not according to the situation. The music is worst in the scene where Jagapathi Babu dies. Cinematography work handed by Anji, is good. Coming to RGV, like always, his story idea and selection of stars is apt. But the way he drags things without reason and executes major scenes without any conviction and clarity leaves a lot to be desired.
Ram Gopal Varma has tried to make a thriller with violence. The movie takes its time to shape and it slowly evolves like a caterpillar. But once the drama starts, it's all just 'Attack'. One gang hunts the other and other plans to outsmart the another. Music fails and that is a huge loss for the project. But still Manchu Manoj carries the movie single handed. The movie is more like a see-saw and at times it rises and at times it falls flat. Interval block will remain one of the best ever in recent times.
