Each one has a take on many things in life. Abhi (Rana) becomes a sharp shooter as his family was destroyed by Rathna (Abhimanyu Singh) a gangster. Ileana is a photographer of suicides and she posts these pics on the youtube. She has her reasons for this. But whatever their reason each of the important characters in the film has a take on suicides. The film is a coming together of these characters. The movie has important roles for Mumaith Khan and Subbaraju. To witness how this story evolves and what is the fate of each character one has to step into the big screen. Some endings are unconventional!
Rana looks classy. He is all style and he compensates his lack of dancing abilities with some very good screen presence. Ileana as usual looks classy in a sensual manner. She is maturing as an actress with each passing film. Abhimanyu Singh is as evil as villains could be. Mumaith Khan gives what one wants and she has some dialogues to mouth also. Subbaraju is adequate and does a decent job. Ali in the comical role is apt.
* Second Half
This film is the coming together of two very different people the very austere and savvy Rana, who is more of a method guy, someone who believes in writing exhaustive scripts and then rewriting them to perfection. Then there is Puri, who is more of a ruffian, the street smart guy who works on instincts and whose methods are not necessarily refined. This union has worked on certain fronts and has failed on many others. A story of a girl who is a photographer of people who commit suicides and a guy who is a shooter is a little weird for the Telugu audience. Then too much blabber about death and how it should be approached is not something you look forward to in Puri Jagannath-Rana film. The characters in the films look edgy and not fully convincing. This film is certainly not for the masses! Puri and Rana will have to do a lot of explaining for having made this film. Fans will be unhappy and the discerning audience will be critical!
