Stunts: Ram Lakshman and Vijay

Production: Nallamalupu Srinivas alias Bujji

Story, Screenplay & Direction: Srivaas

Story: Bose (Jagapathi Babu) and Chandu (Gopichand) are brothers in a family which contains parents who are very friendly (father is Kota Srinivas Rao) and Jagapathi Babu’s wife (Kalyani) and daughter. Bose is a scincere D.C.P (Police) who tries to arrest a local criminal called ’section’ Shankar (Yashpal Sharma) who eliminates any person who knows his secret. He kills Bose by joining hands with S.P and Chandu’s close friend. How Chandu takes revenge on them forms the remaining part of the story.

Performance: The whole movie is stolen by Jagapathi Babu’s performance. He did a commendable job a sincere police officer who gives away his life on-duty. Jagapathi Babu has improved a lot in action as well as emotional scenes.

The second person who stole the show is Gopi Chand. He is at his best in all the departments like action, emotion, dance and comedy. He looks cool and casual in college senes and manly in fight sequences. His performance during his brother’s death is note worthy.

Anushka did a decent job as the heroine and looks hot and sexy in song sequences. Gopichand and Anushka together form a good on-screen pair and their body language and chemistry are good. From Super to Lakshyam, she has improved a lot.

Yashpal Sharma, a Bollywood villan is doing a telugu movie for the first time and he is passable. There is nothing to mention about his villanism in the movie.

The comedy track between Venu Madhav and Brahmanandam is good and refreshing.

Kota Srinivas Rao, Dharmavarapu Subhramanyam, Ravi Babu and Raghu Babu, all performed well.

Music composed by Mani Sharma is good. The music for the remix song ‘niluvave valukanulada….’ is good and also for the last song is fast and foot tapping. The bachground score during action sequences is gripping and needs a special mention.

The cinematography by Sekhar Joseph is good in songs. The locations are captured well.

The stunts in this look nice and natural after a very long time. Ram Lakshman and Shiva took special efforts to compose good fight sequences for Gopichand who already has an of action hero.

Story and direction by debutant Srivaas are good. Though the story has shades of hindi flick Ghayal, it is well customized for Andhra audience. The story moves at a brisk phase and never bores us. Sri vaas proved his talent as a director in his first movie itself.

Strengths: Jagapathi Babu and Gopichand

Weaknesses: Nothing which needs a mention here.

Tag line: Lakshyam - action for mass and emotion for class
