Story starts on introduction of Memory Transfer technology by Sarah (Nidhhi Agerwal) while iSmart Shankar (Ram Pothineni) escapes from jail who murders the famous politician. Chandini (Nabha Natesh) is Shankar's Girl Friend.  Arun (Satyadev) who tries to catch hold of Shankar will be shot dead in planned chase. Sarah is Arun's Girl Friend and she implements Memory Chip in Shankar's Head in one incident.

Who is Arun ? Why is iSmart Shankar's head is been placed with double sim card? How is Sarah (Nidhhi Agerwal) connected to the story is rest.


Ram Pothineni is the biggest asset through out the film. His energy levels, action stunts and dance moves are highlights.

Satya Dev plays key role and gets good chance for the main plot

Nabha Natesh role is limited and her glamour treat is added asset

Nidhhi Agerwal grabs another good role in the film


Director Puri Jagannadh has taken this film to his next level by giving his racy narration once again after long time. The screenplay is very racy in the first half and the plot gets engaged before the interval bang.

Production Values are at top notch

Mani Sharma background score is back with bang on mass masala

Editing is decent


iSmart Shankar is full on masala entertainer with commercial elements. Ram's energy in combination of Nabha and Nidhhi Agerwal is good while the action scenes and interval bang is a super twist.

Though the film is racy in the first half, the film goes on predictable note in the second half of the with few unnecessary scenes and weak climax. However, Puri has managed the film with his mark dialogues after long time.



RATING - 3/5
