“Gap ivvaledu…vachindhi” is what Allu Arjun said in his teaser but is the gap worth it ? Trivikram and Allu Arjun are coming together for third time after two successful films. Music is already a rage. Can both capitalize on this and turn it out into a hattrick ?


Two baby boys are born at the same time in the same hospital. A jealous Valmiki, who is father of one of the babies, decides to switch them. So that his son would live a life of a prince. Rest of the film is weaved around this secret and these two families.


Trivikram sets his plot right at the beginning and the follows it with his magic. Movie flows in a very breezy manner with nice and clean comedy at regular intervals. This is film an example of perfection in each and every department. Music and BGM is absolutely outstanding. Music for first fight and folk song for the last fight are finest work’s of S.S Thaman. Songs are gorgeously shot on screen.  Fights are superbly composed, every fight block makes its own mark. This is probably Trivikram’s most composed writing till date. He never let his dialogues dominate the film. He played to his strengths, that is situational comedy and human emotions. Apologizing moment between Tabu and Jayaram is one of the finest moments of the film. There are also so many fun moments. Meeting room scene with different songs from different movies is absolute joy.

This movie primarily belongs to four men – Allu Arjun, Murali Sharma, Jayaram and Sachin Khedekar. All of them gave terrific performances. One of the career best performance from Allu Arjun. Be it fights, dances, comedy or emotional scenes, he just nailed every one of them. Murali Sharma was just brilliant as evil father. Big dissatisfaction from this film was how some actors were wasted. Especially with national talent like Tabu. Navdeep, Rajendra Prasad, Sunil, Nivetha Pethuraj and Sushanth almost had nothing to do.

Our Verdict

First half was simple and breezy with superb interval scene. Second half only gets better with plot unfolding and some fantastic scenes coming one after another. Trivikram, Allu Arjun and Thaman created 70MM magic that cannot be missed. Go for it!!
