Story: Anu (Aksha) is the daughter of the city' mayor and heir to a fortune running into thousands of crores. Some unidentified killers hatch a plan to kill her but is saved by Shankaranna (Srikanth), a small time conman. She appoints Shankar as her bodyguard to protect her from her unknown nemesis.

Movie Review: When people want an opinion about a movie, they don't go asking if the performances are intense, or if the direction incredible, or if the editing is ground breaking. More often than not they just want to know if the movie is any good at all. Most reviews are extended answers of the same question. To put it simply, this movie is just too lame! Read on for the extended analysis.

We have Anu, a typical damsel in distress who loses her in her childhood. She is the daughter of the city's mayor on the threshold of inheriting a fortune running into a few thousand crores. It has to be said all's not well between the father and daughter. Anu hates the corrupt ways of her dad and goes abroad to pursue her studies. Thanks to a few unforeseen turn of events she lands in Hyderabad.

One day she is attacked by some unidentified goons. Shankaranna (Srikanth) a small time goon comes to her rescue. Anu promptly makes him an offer to be her bodyguard and clings on to him for her dear life. Meanwhile, the CBI is in hot pursuit of a benami land owner who own properties worth crores. There are a few more twists in the tale before the villain is revealed. How our man saves the damsel in distress is what the movie is all about.

The movie is all about Anu and the filmmaker seems to have added Srikanth's character as an afterthought. Srikanth does his bit to breathe life into a poorly conceived character but it just doesn't add up. Aksha has a lot of screen space but the script is so slipshod that no amount of acting was going to save the day for her.

It seems like a B-Grade action film from the nineties and everything looks too outdated. There are too many loopholes in the script and the execution so analysis into what all went wrong will be a waste of time.
