The makeover of Varun Tej is what gets our attention instantly. It is terrific, and half of the job is done with the look itself. Add decent dialogue delivery and some well-written words, it is a character that is very easy to lap up by the audience.

The film is all about Varun Tej. He has brought Gaddalakonda Ganesh character to life with his terrific portrayal. The styling is spot on as Varun looks menacing as the bad guy. His look of eighties also is impressive. This is the best performance of the actor by far.
