Other Technical Aspects
Koragiri Venkateswara Rao's editing makes the movie a crispy watch, especially in the second half and climax. The excellent art direction by AS Prakash and brilliant action choreography deserve a special applause.
It is a fact that no dubbed film can recreate the charm of its original version. It is the same with the Malayalam version of Janatha Garage. The real essence of the movie is surely missing in the highly artificial dialogues and poor dubbing.
A perfect watch for the action movie lovers and the fans of Mohanlal and Jr NTR.
