    The movie 1: Nenokkadine is a psychological thriller and it is high on action quotient. Mahesh Babu's electrifying performance is the main highlight in the film. Sukumar's engrossing screenplay and emotionally-charged dialogues, Devi Sri Prasad's songs and background score, R Rathnavelu's amazing camera work, brilliantly-choreographed action and chases scenes, Kriti Sanon's glamour, and exotic locales are other big attractions in the film. The dragging narration in the second half and lack of entertainment quotient are its big drawbacks.

    Sukumar has chosen an interesting story, which has not been explored many times in Tollywood. The film 1: Nenokkadine is all about a young guy, who is desperate to know his identity. Having lost his memory in an accident, he goes in search of his true self. The director seems to have drawn inspiration from a Hollywood film The Bourne Identity. Though its storyline is simple, the director has included lot of twists and turns in the narration, which makes the audience glued to screens throughout the film.

    Not many directors dare to include commercial elements in a psychological thriller, but Sukumar has done it very nicely without harming the tempo of 1: Nenokkadine. Since it is a big-budget movie, he has balanced the content and commercial viability of the film. He has embedded it with plenty of intense action and excellent emotional sequences in the movie. His screenplay will give you new experience.

    The first half of 1: Nenokkadine is excellent and will impress all classes of audience. A few sentimental scenes slow down the pace of narration in the second half. But the superb climax that lasts for 15 minutes will compensate it. The viewers will surely walk out of theatre with contented heart.

    Sukumar should be commended for brilliant characterization in 1: Nenokkadine. Mahesh Babu appears in two different getups and he impresses the viewers in both shades. He has delivered wonderful performance in action, dance and sentimental scenes. Newbie Kriti Sanon does not have much scope for performance, but she manages to steal the show with her glam quotient.

    As usual, talented artistes Nassar, Anu Hasan, Sayaji Shinde, Pradeep Rawat, Kelly Dorji, Vikram Singh, Posani Krishna Murali, Srinivasa Reddy, Anand and Supreet Reddy have delivered their best. Mahesh Babu's Gautham Krishna, who enters films as child artiste, will also win the heart of the film goers.

    The production values of 1: Nenokkadine are on par with Hollywood standards and Ratnavelu's cinematography is the main attraction in the technical front. Devi Sri Prasad's music and background score are also among the big strengths of the film. Though all his songs are good to listen, a couple of them have been misplaced. International stunt coordinator Conrad Palmisano's stunts and chase scenes are also one of the main highlights of the film. Other technical departments have also done commendable job. Karthika Srinivas' editing is also good, but he could have trimmed a few scenes in the second half.

    Overall, 1: Nenokkadine is a wonderful psychological thriller, which will appeal to all classes of audience. The movie has Mahesh Babu's excellent performance, Sukumar brilliant direction, and amazing technical stuff. It is a paisa vasool entertainer that will remain as a classic and landmark film in the career of Mahesh Babu and Sukumar. Don't miss to watch the movie this weekend.
