" is surely
going to lift up the spirits of its lead actor Darshan

and has all ingredients of a typical commercial film. The film is a
must-watch for everyone who was eagerly waiting for a big blockbuster

steals the show. His effortless action sequences and dynamic expressions
are real treat for his fans.

drags a little bit there.

been forcibly taken by her cousin. Later Krishna realises that the place
is his own village and his memory is revived which enables him to
unravel the mystery of his dream. Finally, the suspense related to his
background and his father's death is revealed.
