A well knit tale, the story begins with Kalyan ( Ravi Teja) a guy who loves challenges and cannot live without getting a 'kick' out of doing things. He falls in love with Naina ( Ileana) but then she leaves him since Kalyan takes up jobs and keeps leaving them. He also gets the support of his father (Sayaji) in this. Naina goes to Malaysia and there she gets the alliance of the tough cop Kalyan Krishna (shaam). However, Kalyan Krishna comes there on a mission. He is there to catch a notorious thief who has been stealing money from the rich people in India and has got away with it. Meanwhile, Kalyan also comes to Malaysia and he stages a drama which confuses Halwaraj (Brahmi), Naina and others. Why does he do that? What is the motive of Kalyan and how does he get his 'kick'? All this forms the rest of the story.

The director has come up with a thoughtful storyline and though the presentation was neat, the narrative could have been better. The dialogues were good, the script was written neatly and the screenplay was effective. Background score was good but all songs did not have energy, melody content was high on them. Cinematography was impressive, editing was crisp, costumes were perfect and the art department did their job to the standard. Ravi Teja was the energy for the film and his expressions and acting have brought him back to form. Ileana was mind blowing and she looked really delicious after putting on weight. Shaam looked handsome but he could have worked more on his expressions, Ashika was alright, Brahmanandam was excellent, Sayaji was regular, Ali managed few laughs, the others like Banerjee, Chalapathi Rao, Kota came and went.

The film has got all the ingredients for a masala movie and then there was tinge of thriller element in it. However, the makers should have worked on the tempo of the film to make it more gripping. The first half does not have any idle moment and passes off peacefully. The second half gets very slow and it not until sometime that the story picks up again and culminates into a neat climax. Technically, the film has been made well but it could have worked more on the intense scenes and also on the pace. Overall, this is a good one to run at box office since there are no other movies in sight now.

Bharatstudent Verdict: Passable entertainer- recommended.
