Artistes’ Performances:

  • Balayya is at his best and his energy levels are at peaks
  • Sonal Chauhan is just for glam show
  • Vedhika fits the bill
  • Jayasudha, Bhumika, Prakashraj did justice to their roles


  • Balakrishna’s Performance
  • Some elevation scenes


  • Routine Story
  • Dragged Narration
  • Over the top scenes


Balayya, who had a very bad year wanted to get a break with Ruler, his 2nd outing with K.S Ravikumar after Jai Simha. Ruler, had some interesting promos and had decent buzz before the release. Makers gave enough hints that this will be a typical balayya’s movie. Balayya did justice to his rule and his fans will definitely enjoy this film but for all others this may end up as a bore. Except few dance numbers and some elevation scenes, there isn’t a single thing that you will appreciate in the film. Movie may run in B,C centers a bit but will find it tough in A centers.
