Remaining plot runs on how Bantu (Allu Arjun) learns his Birth secret, enters ‘Vaikunthapurram’ , reunites with his birth parents and deal with the consequences there.
Allu Arjun commanded the whole proceedings with his comedy, attitude, style & dances. He is all over the movie carrying it with never before energy. Pooja Hegde is alluring & elegant. Her looks in Samajavaragamana & Butta Bomma are astonishing. Murali Sharma, Tabu, Jayaram proved to be perfect fit for the roles and excelled. Navdeep,Sushanth, Nivetha Pethuraj,Sunil, Harshavardhan, Rohini, Rahul in their brief roles and scenes performed well. Samuthirakani, Govind Padmasoorya are decent in negative roles.
Thaman S – This man needs a standing ovation for taking the movie to next level with his songs & BGM. Whatever the scene is Comedy, Emotional, Elevation, Action he gave a perfect Bg score which impacted all of them in a greater way. Needless to say every song in the movie is a Chartbuster which ultimately was responsible for the enormous hype the movie got. Cinematography by P.S.Vinod is stylish, classy, colorful & rich. Action blocks & songs in the movie are picturised really well. Butta Bomma & Ramulo Ramula songs picturisation is good. Art Director A.S.Prakash did a decent job with the sets especially the song sets. Editing work by Navin Nooli was neat. A little bit more of tighter edit was needed. Action by Ram-Laxman was way too classy and mass at the same time. The intro fight with Dupatta was nice.
Trivikram went on with a old-school story of Babies swap, more precisely a story like yesteryear movie “Inti Guttu” but handled it well with very good emotional & comedy quotient. Whenever audience are about to feel a little of lag in the story, songs come to rescue. Screenplay was to the point on the story not deviating at all with unnecessary comedy tracks. Whole movie was carried on a classy & breezy mood which is very much required for a family entertainer. Dialogues were really good, in few scenes they solely elevated the scene & hero. But, a little bit of care had to be taken over the plot making it even more interesting, now it’s just predictable on major parts. Trivikram was very successful in using Allu Arjun’s Energy, attitude & body language in churning out his scenes. All credits to him for getting a blockbuster audio & unleashing the best from Thaman.
