For someone who is number one in everything, something stimulating and challenging is always required. What happens when he does find something like that but then it is wrong in the eyes of his loved one and also the law. Does he still want that sort of `Kick'? let us see..


Kalyan (ravi teja) and Naina (Ileana) love each other but then Kalyan is one man who loves to take up challenges just for the `kick' of it. True to his nature, he gets bored of jobs easily and this tends to upset Naina a great deal. One day they have a showdown and Naina leaves Kalyan and comes to Malaysia. Here, her father fixes up an alliance with top cop Kalyan Krishna (shaam) and Naina tells her love story to him. Kalyan Krishna also explains his purpose of coming to Malaysia. There is a thief who in on the prowl and he has been robbing money from rich and famous. Who is that thief? Is Kalyan Krishna able to catch him? Does Naina forget Kalyan and get married to Kalyan Krishna? All this forms the rest of the story.


Ravi Teja was the life and soul for the movie and his performance has been justified. He shows his original energy levels and keeps the momentum on. Words cannot describe the beauty of Ileana after she has put on weight, she looks truly gorgeous and very sweet. She must continue this shape in her future films too. Shaam looks handsome and he could have been better, Ashika was alright. Brahmanandam did his bit to get the maximum laughs, Ali was supportive, Venu Madhav did not have much in this. Sayaji was brief, Kota, Banerjee, Chalapathi Rao came and went. The others did their bit as required.

Technical aspects

The dialogues have been written sensibly and the script could have been a bit tighter but it was written without flaws. The screenplay was effective and it was well supported by a soulful background score. The songs were mild and two numbers were really touching. Cinematography was the highlight and editing was done neatly. Costumes and art department contributed their bit and made their presence felt. Stunts were few but the car chase sequences were well executed.

Director's portrayal

The director has come up with a storyline that involves romance, comedy, suspense, thrills and also sentiment. So it was a mixture of many things which required a deft handling of the script. His presentation of the plot was alright but then he could have looked at working on the pace of the film and provided more quality instead of filling the gaps with few unwanted scenes. However, there was not much idle moment given by him except during the second half where the speed comes down drastically. Overall, it was an okay job.

Critic's view

The film attempts to provide complete entertainment from start to end and except two scenes where there is a sentiment and melodrama, the rest of the movie runs mostly on comedy and action along with few thrills and twists. But then the movie could have been a lot better if the speed was worked upon and also the fights were not much in the movie which could have pushed in more adrenaline. Given the budget involved in the making of the film, it looks a bit skeptical as to how so much money has gone into it but then recovering that big an investment is something which could be a challenge. The plus point for the makers is there are no releases in their way right now so an aggressive marketing and a positive word of mouth will help them reach their goal.


Good mix of various elements, can be watched.
