A series of murders happen in the city of Hyderabad and the killers leaves no clue for the police. So, special branch ACP Gautam [Manchu Vishnu] will be deployed to trace the psycho killer. However, despite many attempts, Gautam and his team fail to catch the killer while murder number increases. In a ray of hope, Gautam approaches an NRI psychologist [Revathi] who studies about the behavioural patterns of psychotic killers.

The rest of the story is how Gautam catches the killer but we have an element of surprise that should be watched in theatre.

Analysis :


Ram Gopal Varma who always comes with out of the box concepts, has yet again brought an interesting plot. This is seriously a better RGV film from the recent times as he did not try to complicate the story of the film and presented in a simple and straight forward way. The first of the film is good and makes you engage with it.

In such films, it would be fine if we avoid entertainment part and make the movie more nail biting. Brahmanandam comedy is seriously not needed in this film.

The second is decent with good twist as the film nears climax. Overall a good presentation and as it is a psycho thriller movie, much shouldn't be revealed. Just go watch it.

Performance :


Vishnu should be appreciated who is doing script oriented films rather than looking for commercial films. He looked good as cop and his body language, dialogue delivery have improved. You will definitely see a new Vishnu in this film. Yesteryear's heroine Revathi makes a comeback to Tollywood and she is one of the vital persons in the film. Revathi's knowledge on psycho killers show RGV's indepth analysis that he did not the subject.

Special mention about the psycho killer. The young actor did an amazing job and his cruelness will scare you but it is all part of his role. Navdeep is fine.

Final Word: If you want to watch a racy movie then go for Anukshanam.
