Arundhati (Anushka) was born in a Royal family and is known for her daring and dashing nature. She exhorts people to thrash and kill her own brother-in-law Pasupati, who married his elder sister and abetted her to commit suicide with his anti-social activities. He is a cruel person besides a womanizer. However, Pasupati survives from the severe thrashing of people and decides to take revenge against her. He acquires tantrik skills and again visits the palace to kill her. But Pasupati falls flat at the beauty of Arundhati and thought of molesting her. With her knack and knowledge, Arundhati makes him immovable and bury him alive in a tomb. Despite going into the tomb, Pasupati challenges that he would avenge his death by killing even if she takes a rebirth. Arundhati too returns the challenge that she would see his end. Who won the challenge? Did Arundhati takes a rebirth? How she acquired the strength to kill the all-powerful Pasupati? What was the real grudge between Arundhati and Pasupati? How Arundhati kept her vow and challenge? How each of them struggled to win the challenge? Answers to all these questions had to be seen on the screen.
Anushka is just a romantic and glamour doll. She doesn’t know what is acting and she doesn’t have any skills to perform. She somehow survived with the glamour and exposure. This is the opinion of the audiences on Anushka so far. Now those who watch Anushka in this film would have to change their opinion. Really Anushka showed her performance capabilities to the fullest extent in this movie. It is no exaggeration that no heroine showed so much acting talent in any lady-oriented character in recent times. The film would definitely remain a milestone in her career. She gave the best of her life in this film. She showed good variation between the two characters of Jejamma and Arundhati. There is no surprise if she was selected as best heroine for her performance. Sonu Sood, who portrayed the role of Pasupati too is second to none in performance. The film would remain a big asset for his career, performance-wise. Sayaji Shinde who appeared in the role of a Muslim Phakir also gave a nice performance. His role helped in maintaining the tempo and assisted the heroine’s role well. He did a fantastic job. Others like Deepak, Kaikala Satyanarayana, Annapurna, Jayalalitha, Ahuti Prasad and all other artistes did complete justice to their respective roles. None of the characters could be dismissed as waste in the movie.
Kodi Ramakrishna once again proved his talent in making films with the help of graphics. He had become the well-known film maker for technical movies. Especially music remained a big asset and re-recording gave life to uplift the mood in the film. Graphics are superb. Above all, editing work is excellent. None of the scene appeared boring and none of them disturbed the story and its tempo with crisp and sharp movement. All the action scenes are superb and the screenplay is excellent and not cinematic. Especially, the film proved that the films brought out in India is second to none technically. Producer Shyamprasad Reddy produced the film with a passion and maintained good production values. Not only the storyline, but also the twists in the film are quite interesting and attracted the audiences. The production values are at a high range. The film appeared like a big hero’s movie with heavy rich scenes. It did not give the feel of watching a lady-oriented movie.
Right from the beginning of the film, the director take the audiences straight into the story without any break or any unnecessary time-pass scenes. The film starts with a nice narration. The performance of Anushka, Sonu Sood, Sayaji Shinde, the technical values attract the audiences. There is a nice twist at the interval bang and the audiences would get a puzzled feel and show interest to go inside as soon as possible to learn about the further story. As expected there are some more twists in the film which are surprising and thrilling. The length of the film is also short and hence the audiences would get a nice feel of watching a nice and technically brilliant film. There are no side-tracks and only story was narrated without going for unnecessary comedy tracks to maintain the tempo. Definitely the film would emerge winner at Box Office.
