It's the direction that gone wrong...auch script too
15 December 2018 | by mrf1977See all my reviews

Bad. 1..length..it drags alot..adding song near to climax.. 2...makeup...nandu, siddique nd m Moshi hair do looks really laughable..seems like low budget movie in early 90s.also prakash raj facial colour,it's felt like they run out of black polish now nd then..his face goes too black,then light,then black, again too black.. 3..narration....it's really irritates back nd fourth story telling, that too and ordinary story..(villain goes after heroin, kills her husband nd co brother, blame falls on hero,hero at that time sort of guardian angel of heroin nd her sister.,heroin also blame him for the loss ..so hero leave village,come back after 15 years to take revenge...)this is the story that took nearly 3 hours to tell back nd fourth.. 4...climax fight...Really let down by fast cut nd bad execution...poor Mohan lals hard work gone down just like that.. 5...over hype...hope u all know what I mean here...

PLUS...

1..MOHAN LAL.... 2..PHOTOGRAPHY..

THATS IT...IT COULD HAVE BEEN A SUPER HIT MOVIE, BUT LET DOWN BY BAD SCRIPTING ND BELOW AVERAGE DIRECTION...
