Technical Excellence:The music of Thaman is unremarkable. The songs may have gone viral on social media, but they don't work at all in the movie. But his background score is good, so that's a plus. This film's cinematography is stunning. The production values are very high because the producers have invested a lot of money.
Balakrishna, in typical fashion, roars through the first half, delivering punch lines and beating up bad guys. Some dialogues are designed to gain political traction. Balakrishna takes aim at the current government in Andhra Pradesh in a scene where the hero has an argument with the minister of home affairs. 1e1e36bf2d
