Ram Pothineni has done a terrific job as iSmart Shankar. He brought fresh air in the character of a Hyderabad Ustad iSmart Shankar inked by director Puri Jagannadh with his unique dialogue delivery, accent and mannerisms and we can’t imagine anyone other than Ram to pull off such a mass role. This time Ram dances moves are new with a lot of mass touches and be done pulled them off with ease.

Nabha Natesh will steal the hearts of audiences as Chandini, especially her Telangana accent is really impressive and her fanbase will be doubled for sure. She has given the needed glam show too and her chemistry with Ram is cute to watch on the silver screen.

Nidhhi Agerwal has got the role where she can perform a bit and she utilized it to an extent. Despite the limited role, she made her presences felt with and even sizzled in a beach song. Ram and Niddhi pair also looked neat on the big screen without any issues.

Satyadev Kancharana got a key role and he did his part sincerely. Getup Srinu had a couple of scenes to generate some laughs in the cinema hall and he was ok to an extent. Tulasi was good in the emotional scenes. Ashish Vidyarthi and Sayaji Shinde are not used to their full potential, their character could have been written strongly with more depth.
