Good Cinema Group Production venture Venkatapuram has been hitting the head lines right from the first look poster. The film’s lead actor Rahul aka Happy Days fame Tyson shocked everyone with his stunning changeover. However, with the release of trailer and audio the expectations on the film were sky-rocketed. Well, now let us see how the film will be:
 
Story:
Anand  (Rahul) is a happy-go-lucky guy, who works was a pizza delivery boy. One fine day, he came across a beautiful girl Chaitra (Mahima Makhwin) and they both turn friendly within no time. During the course, Chaithra asks Anand a help, which leads him to drag into mess. What was that help?? How Anand lands in trouble? What happened to Chaitra? How Anand solves all these problems? Forms the rest of the story.
 
Positive points:
 
Rahul made a perfect comeback  with a bang. Right from his looks, his changeover is mind-blowing. And his acting has increased by leaps and bounds and Rahul just rocked in his role. Debutante actress Mahima has got a huge talent and her cute expression are  too good. She will go by places in the film industry if she selects good characters. 
 
Ajay as a powerful cop is amazing. Kasi Viswanath as heroine’s father is good. Ajay Josh performed very well in his respective role. Jogi Naidu impresses in his limited role. The rest of the actors did their job pretty well.
 
The narration and screeplay are major assets of the film. Director made the audience to watch the film with alot of Curiosity. The way director narrated the story is very interesting. 
 
The interval bang is amazing with lot of interesting stuff and this made the audience to watch the second half with alot of Curiosity. Meanwhile the first half is dragged a bit. The music and background score by Achu is the asset of the film. 
 
The editing by Madhu is pretty well and the cinematography by Sai Prakash needs a great applause in the technical front.  The production values by Good Cinema Group is lavish and the Vizag beach and surrounding are showcased very well.
 
Negative aspects:
 
First half dragged a bit.
Few scenes must have chopped off.
 
Verdict:
 
A must watch content driven suspense thriller.  A strong story line, engaging screenplay, brilliant performances, stunning background music score made the film a worth watch. Your hard earned bucks will be useful.
 
Meanwhile, Baahubali mania has finally comes to end with the question Why Kattapa Killed Baahubali. Now find out Why Anand killed Chaitra?
