During one of their missions to rescue the children, another person named Ajay from Major Ajay’s regiment got severely injured. He had applied for leave due to his sister’s wedding.

Performances & Analysis:

There is no doubt that the action-comedy film “Sarileru Neekevvaru” is a one-man show of Mahesh Babu. Whether you talk about his acting, dialogue delivery, expressions, dance, he was just superb. His dance on the song “Mind Block” with Tamannah was mind-blowing.

Prakash Raj and Vijayashanti were the other major contributors with their respective characters. If the character of Nagendra could have been written well, we would have got much better output from someone like Prakash Raj. Rashmika Mandanna was good in some parts but mostly her character looked forceful and overdramatic.

Anil Ravipudi didn’t focus too much on the script as some of the scenes looked completely unnecessary like the one when Samskruthi accuses Ajay of raping her just to trap him and get married to him.

Anil Ravipudi made his directorial debut with Nandamuri Kalyan Ram starrer movie “Pataas”. His other directorial movies include Sai Dharam Tej, Raashi Khanna starrer movie “Supreme”, Ravi Teja starrer movie “Raja The Great”, Venkatesh, Varun Tej, Tamannah, Mehreen Pirzada starrer movie “F2: Fun and Frustration”.
