Performances
Sharwanand has shouldered the entire film on him with his performance from start to end. Compared to younger version and older version character, Sharwanand performance was great in the aged character of a don with settled expressions doing the work and the younger version has the love track, aggression, smartness that required to become the powerful gangster.
Kalyani Priyadarshan is the star of the movie and her beautiful smile will win everyone’s heart. Kalyani chemistry with Sharwanand looked natural and their love track is handled effectively by the director.
Kajal Aggarwal is completely wasted, she is given minimal screen time and the most disappointing thing is “Pella Perfect” song is placed at the end title cards. Sudarshan has evoked few laughs and Murali Sharma got a tailor made role that he did as usual.
Praveen, Ajay, Brahmaji and most of the talented actors are not utilized to their full capacity by Sudheer Varma. After the lead pair, it was actor Raja character that has some potential to perform and he used the opportunity to the core by doing complete justice in the film.

Others Comment:
Bottom Line – Other than strong performance by the lead cast, some technical brilliance there is nothing much left to watch the film in cinema halls.
