Police send Ravi in to hiding for Hyderabad.Ravi’s love Madhu (Ileana) works in the a travel agency through which Bittu is planning to escape and that is how Ravi agains bumps in to Bittu. Rest of the story is how good triumphs on evil.
Performances: Bunny played a lively character as in every movie of his. He is smart, cunning, active and spontaneous in the role of a hero who exactly thinks on the line of criminal. You can clearly see how Trivikram impacts a hero in all his movies and it is evident in this movie too. Dances are good but not up to the range of Bunny.
Ileana looked awkward on screen looking skinny and her face missing glow. Looks like her career is in serious trouble. Sonu Sood even though is a baddie had got an excellent role. He had got excellent screen presence.
Kota Srinivasa Rao, Rajendra Prasad, Rao Ramesh, Brahmaji are good as always. MS Narayana and Dharamavarapu are good in their little roles. Brahmanandham’s comedy scenes are good even though limited. Ali, Vennela Kishore came and went like lightening.
Technical Performances: Trivikram is brilliant as always as a story writer and dialogue writer. But as always he faltered in narrating the story perfectly. Some how, he prefers to have lengthy scenes which does n’t go well with the audience. Julayi also did not seen to have more than 20 scenes. He missed the logic at several parts of the story and the story went wayward towards the second half.
Devi Sri Prasad’s Rerecording is good. Songs are okay but are well picturised. Cinematography is excellent. Art work is superb.Editing could have been better.
Final Say: The first half of the movie is good with some excellent dialogues and good comedy. The director loses plot in the second half as the pace of the movie drops as the hero transits between catching the villain and impressing the heroine. The movie works good with A class audience as they have everything expected from a Trivikram and Bunny movie. It has to be seen how the audience receive it in B and C centers. And according to me, the movie is easily a one time watch
