Prakash Raj as always did very well
Rashmika was just okay and didn’t have much scope either
Vijayashanthi had good screen presence and did justice to her role
Rajendra Prasad was just okay

Sarileru Neekevvaru, probably one of the most awaited film of the year has hit the screens today and it has one of the best combination of hero and director. Anil Ravipudi, who has been riding high on success after delivering an industry hit F2 and Mahesh Babu, who is also riding high on back to back blockbusters came together for this film. Anil Ravipudi knows the pulse of audience and have portrayed Mahesh Babu exactly the way fans wanted to see and he also made him dance to mass numbers that will probably bring the roof down in B & C centers. First half of the film starts off little slow with military episodes and the much talked about train episode was just okay and the comedy didn’t workout as much as it did in previous Anil Ravipudi films. However, he keeps up the tempo with Interval block. Second half starts with a bang too and the pace of the films is steady in 2nd half until climax, which is not satisfying. That doesn’t dampen the mood of the audience anyway and you come out of the film satisfied. This is a perfect sankranthi film and we have to wait and watch the records it will break in coming days.
