Shraddha Srinath, Satyaraj
Lack of commercial elements
Lack of comedy and humor
Gowtham Tinnanuri decided to highlight the journey of a cricketer and the emotions involved in the ups and downs of a player. He narrates the story without deviating in the name of commercial elements.
Right from the start till the finish, he with his gripping screenplay and direction elevated the film another level. He is well supported by the powerful performances and thought provoking dialogues. First half ends with a good interval bang. Second half too continues in the same manner with intense cricket matches.
However lack of entertaining and commercial elements may put off B,C viewers. Even multiplex viewers will be put off by overdose of sentiments and emotions. Those who do not know anything about cricket may get bored.
Overall Gowtham came with a never seen before story on Tollywood silver screen and attracted with his screenplay and direction.
