Rajasekhar leads the show. His performance is good as an investigative officer. Rahul Ramakrishna failed to impress people as comedy done by him feels silly at times. Adah Sharma is good in her role while Nanditha Swetha and Poojitha Ponnada played crucial roles and did well. There are many twists which make people confused initially. However, all the confusion will be cleared slowly, when the story heading the climax. BGM is okay but sometimes, it makes unnecessary noise which disturbs the attention of people towards serious scenes. The direction is good. Production values are decent.
