Artists Performances

Sunil is just okay in his role, but his energy and his style of comedy are clearly missing in the movie. . His dances are good though. The characterization is more suited for young star heroes. Sunil’s strength lies in comedy, and he should opt for such scripts.

Despite having two heroines Nikki Galrani and Dimple Chopade on board, none of them had scope for performance and are restricted to glamour show.

Mukesh Rishi impresses in a positive role and Ashutosh Rana is just okay.

Posani and Sapthagiri are hilarious in few scenes while Brahmanandam brings in few laughs. Prudhvi is wasted.

Bhavana, Roller Raghu, Viva Harsha filled the screens.

Technicians Role

Cinematography is on top-notch and the songs are all shot in exotic locales of Europe.

Dinesh’s musical scores are mediocre and so is the BGM.

Vasu Varma’s writing is bad while the direction is inconsistent.

Dialogues are okay and so is the art work.

Editing isn’t up to the mark.

Production values are rich.


If you’re expecting a fun-filled Sunil-mark comedy with Krishnashtami, well you’re in for a disappointment. Not just the comedy, but sadly nothing works in favor of the movie. The plot is age-old, characterizations are poor and proceedings are silly.

Vasu Varma completely failed in direction department with this wafer thin, routine plot. He has also failed in etching performances from leads and making the family drama engaging. The emotional scenes never work and there are hardly any exciting factors right from the word go.

While the first half is passable with at least few comedy scenes here and there, the second half is a way to boredom. Lack of Sunil mark comedy is another disappointment for his fans or comedy film lovers.
