The entire cast of this film has given their best. Tollywood Prince Mahesh Babu who is debuting through this film has given a strong performance. That's not new to people who watch his Telugu films. He plays the role of an intelligence officer and he carries the role with ease and utmost perfection.
SJ Suryah gets a meaty role and his character has been well established. His introduction scene gets a loud applause from the audience.
Rakul Preet Singh looks beautiful and goes what is required for the role. Her romance with Mahesh Babu was decent, it dint go well at few places (looked artificial)The Team
This film is technically brilliant. Cinematography by Santhosh Sivan needs a special mention as it brings the overall grandness of the movie.
Harris Jayaraj's songs dint click well (The Telugu version sounded great) and wasn't placed well, but the theme track was good.
The screenplay could have been even more better. Corrections here and there would have made it even more better especially the climax portion.
Editing is crisp and neat.
CGI is a let down, it could have been used well but unfortunately looked tacky at places.
Peter Hein's stunt was good. Its well choreographed and is a plus in this movie.
Bottom line - One time watchable. Go for it!
Certified Fresh - YES!
Stars - 3/5
