Subhash Chandra Gandhi (Upendra), stays in London and runs Gandhi and Gandhi, a multi-billionaire company. He loves India more than his life and he is a great patriot. He falls in love with Indira (Nayantara) thinking that she is a traditional Indian girl. However, She has something different in her mind and has a hidden agenda behind her marriage. Noticing his weakness about India and its traditions, she wants him to change himself first and forget his patriotism. She puts a test to him to get the pension to her childhood teacher like a common man. Gandhi accepts the test and tries his best but finds that he could not do anything, as a common man because the entire system turned corrupt. Meanwhile, the story unveils her hidden agenda. The circumstances make Subhash to open a company in India. The rest should be seen on-screen.
Such kind of stories need a hero like Upendra and no other could do justice to this kind of role. The change of attires, the peculiar action, sporting of different hairstyles and costumes would suit only Upendra, as audiences are used to it. Moreover, the dialogues penned for his character has perfectly matched his histrionics. Surely, the audience will enjoy his punch dialogues and acting in the film. Nayanatara has given wondeful performance. She too has emoted well in different scenes. Tulip Joshi gas filled the glamour slot. Comedy by Sadhu Kokila and Ali evokes good laughs. Sudarshan as father of Upendra is okay.
Cinematographer Ashok Kashyap has beautifully captured the beauty of London. Graphics are used to show high-rise buildings near the Charminar, Assembly, Golconda and other important places in Hyderabad. It gives a feel that Hyderabad would sport a different look by 2030. Music by Harikrishna is adequate. Dialogues by Vennelakanti are apt but it will not give the audiences a feel that they are watching a dubbed film. Technical advancement of the film is undoubtedly at its best. The screenplay and the script penned by Upendra are gripping and the directorial talent of Upendra is unquestionable.
Upendra has foreseen the future and made the film in an extraordinary style. No doubt the audiences would get good entertainment. However, the non-Telugu extras appeared boring and it is very cinematic. Rowdyism in corporate style sounds okay but it is impractical. Likewise, selling the state in auction and to sell it to people sounds something odd and indigestible. Though, the film is okay on technical front, the Telugu audiences may not like the film as a whole. However, the message that everyone should love the country is excellent.
