JR NTR is one of the powerhouse performers in the Telugu film industries. Very few in the industry are as focused as JR NTR. Yet another time, the actor has proved his best in the film by putting all his efforts in playing the three different roles.
Jai Lava and Kusa. Each role is different and the performance Tarak delivered will blow our minds. Nivetha Thomas and Raashi Khanna are the female leads of the movie who played their parts in a perfect manner. Both of them have come up with solid performances and entertained everyone by scoring equally. Nanditha Raj and Hamsa Nandini are seen in small parts of the film which is good to watch. Ronit Roy, Abhimanyu Singh, Harish Uthaman and others performed well. All the other actors are good as per their role limitations and they made their presence felt. Milky beauty Tamannaah Bhatia sizzled in a special song of the film.
The cinematography of the film is handled by Chota K Naidu. The camera work is really amazing and has come out really very well. The editing by Kotagiri Venkateswara Rao is good.
The music of the film failed to impress but on a whole, the background score compensated and DSP deserves all the appreciation for the music part. The BGM elevated all the key scenes very well in the film. The locations look good and the production design is appreciable. The artwork is impressive. The production values of NTR Arts banner are rich.
