Hippi Devadas (Karthikeya) completes Engineering and Begins Training in Martial Arts. He falls in love with Sneha (Jazba Singh). While they go on a long drive, he falls for Sneha’s friend, Amukta Malyada (Digangana Suryavanshi). He avoids Sneha and goes after her. Sneha moves on and Amukta makes Hippi’s life hell with her conditions. What happens next in their lives forms the rest.
Karthikeya who impressed in RX100 put up a good show in this film as well. He excelled in the Action Sequences and did some decent performance in a character with different variations. Digangana Suryavanshi is good as Amukta Malyada. She impressed the audience with her performance as well as glamour. Jazba Singh is okay in a little role. JD Chakravarthy is okay while Vennela Kishore is good in evoking the comedy. Brahmaji and Sudharshan are okay in whatever they are offered.
Director TN Krishna in the name of a youthful film banked on double meaning dialogues and love scenes which cross limits. The screenplay is also poor and we feel the proceedings are overstretched. RD Rajasekhar’s cinematography is good while Nivas K Prasanna came up with okay music. Songs are picturized well. Editing has been very disappointing. Production Values are good.
Karthikeya is definitely a hero material but he seems to be trying too much. In the name of attracting the youth audience, he just resorted to a film with no plot to take about. Double Meaning Dialogues and Romantic Scenes crossing the line are not the elements which make a youthful film. Karthikeya bagged a hit without such elements in RX100. He should have known that better. Further, he needed no make a showreel of his six pack throughout the film. The film is a below average experience with a slow and boring treatment packed with several boring scenes.
