It is quite surprising why soft heroes like Srikanth and Jagapathi Babu try their best to earn a mass image. They fare well in good family subjects. Srikanth, who was off the success track for quite some time, had just started his winning streak with films like Operation Duryodhana and Yamagola Mallee Modalayindi. It seems, Srikanth has accepted the film just out of sheer friendship he has with MV Choudary, who ventured into film production from real estate business. Generally, the debut films of directors would be hits, but director CC Srinivas instead of coming with a story on his own, depended on a successful Tamil film Thalai Nagaram and the Tamil influence continued to remain in the film giving a big dud to Srikanth.
