Mahalakshmi (Aditi Rao Hydari), a dance teacher, and Smita (Anu Emmanuel), a law student, fall for Vijay and Arjun respectively, finding themselves taken over by the uncontrollable tide that is the life of these men.
Also in the story are Dhanunjay (Ramachandra Raju), the leader of a local, illegal smuggling gang, his elder brother Gooni Babji (Rao Ramesh), who is often maligned for his disability, and Chanchu Mama, a small-time smuggler. (Jagapati Babu). One man’s decision affects many lives and sends things so far that there seems to be no coming back.
While all this sounds exciting, even intriguing on paper, with the way Ajay has written his script, you can see ‘Twist’ is coming a mile away.
He also takes his sweet time setting up the characters with chuckles about Chanchu Mama’s aunty and food, Babji’s character is being used to show that Dhananjay has something in the film around the time gap. Doesn’t connect either.
Looks like Anu’s character is also present for this, leaving no stone unturned to make her stand out.
Arjun (Sharwanand) and Vijay (Siddharth) are good friends. The latter is in a relationship with Maha (Aditi Rao). After several unfortunate incidents, Vijay runs away from the city and no one comes to know about his whereabouts. What happens after Vijay returns after almost 4 years? What’s the story with Maha?
Sharwanand and Siddharth steered the show with their stellar performances. He has got meaty roles and he makes full use of it. Aditi Rao also gets a writer-backed role and delivers an impressive performance.
Anu Emmanuel makes a brief appearance. Rao Ramesh and Jagapathi Babu are class act and they breathe life into their roles. The casting is bang on point.
Director Ajay Bhupathi chooses a deep theme and narrates his story through the central characters. He is excellent in terms of character portrayal.
The first half is comparatively good and ends on a high due to a brilliantly executed action-oriented interval bang. But Ajay loses his grip in the second half and it weighs heavily on the overall viewing experience of the film.
The background score is of very good quality but there is nothing spectacular in the songs. Actually, the songs become speed bumps in the later half. Cinematography is top class. Editing could have been better as there is a slight lag in the second half.
