Story:
National Investigation Agency is trying to nab a criminal for many years. The agency’s commissioner (Ravi Kishan) comes to know that the criminal Padmanabham (Arjun) is now residing in Las Vegas and that he is expecting a specially stitched suit from Hyderabad.

The commissioner sends two agents to trail the courier in the US and nab him. On the other hand, Chaitra’s (Megha Akash) marriage gets called off.

When she learns that the travel money for her honeymoon cannot be redeemed, she agrees to share the journey with another guy who is heading to Las Vegas. The guy turns out to be A Sathyam (Nithin). They agree not to tell truth to each other.

At the same time, Padmanabham comes to know that NIA has sent two officers to the US to nab him. Who are the officers and how A Sathyam is connected to this whole NIA mission?

Artistes’ Performances:
Nithin has gone for complete makeover in terms of look and acting style. So far, he has been playing lover boy kind of roles or soft-natured characters. But here, he gets to show off two sides – a happy-go-lucky guy and a guy on a secret mission. He has done total justice to his role. He looks classy during his mission in the US.

Newcomer Megha Akash is looks good but she has a poorly written character.

Arjun completely dominates the show. His characterization is terrific. He transforms into various getups with the usage of prosthetics to trick the Indian agencies and he has got them perfect.

Nasser and Sri Ram are both good in their roles which are very important to the story.

Highlights:
Nithin and Arjun’s performances
Mani Sharma’s BG Score and 2 songs
Cinematography

Drawback:
Inconsistent second half
Weak climax
slow pace

On the whole, it appeals to limited audiences There are equal number of good sequences and boring episodes.

Final verdict : can watch it once !
